Iizuka talks Sonic spin-offs/titles with other characters, says Big the Cat game is “a nice idea”

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.
