– Mother’s Canyon: Composed by Jun Senoue and performed by Sonic Adventure Music Experience

We’ve included the making of video for Team Sonic Racing’s music below.

2021 will be a big year for Sonic, as the character and the franchise as a whole will be turning 30 years old. According to Sonic Team boss Takashi Iizuka, the team wants to take on a new kind of challenge for the the series’ big milestone.

Iizuka shared that news in a recent interview with 4Gamer. During the same discussion, he was also asked about the possibility of Sonic crossing over into eSports territory. Given the nature of the main games, Iizuka believes it’s unlikely. Other genres may be a better fit for the idea, however.

Earlier in the week during Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference, Phantasy Star Online 2 was announced for release in North America. The thing is, only Xbox One is the only confirmed platform at present. That’s leaving some fans with questions about the status of the Switch version, which previously launched in Japan.

Although we don’t have confirmation from SEGA, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has given some hope that Phantasy Star Online 2 will hit Switch in the west eventually. Speaking with GiantBomb, he said: “… and yes, it will end up on all platforms – that’s not the point. To me the point was to have SEGA back on our stage – it’s been awhile.”

We’ll keep you updated on any official announcements from SEGA in the future.
