Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka has expressed some interest in creating Sonic spin-offs and titles featuring other characters.
Iizuka was asked by ONM this month if Big the Cat will ever receive his own game. In response, he said that such a proposal is “a nice idea”, and feels that the character would be well-suited in a fishing title.
As far as spin-offs in general are concerned, Iizuka said: “if there was a game in which we could use the characters in the best way, we might consider it.”
Iizuka’s comments in full:
“That’s a nice idea! At Summer of Sonic a lot of people were asking if we might feature characters like Shadow, or if there was any possibility of spin-offs. The focus isn’t on taking characters and building around them, but on the game itself. Obviously, if there was a game in which we could use the characters in the best way, we might consider it. For Big the Cat, if it’s a fishing game, it’s a possibility.”
Thanks to joclo for sending this our way.
