Sonic next game future

Sonic Frontiers director Morio Kishimoto has been answering more fan questions on Twitter, and has shared some interesting insight into the future of the series. Tails Channel was kind enough to round up some of the more important tidbits.

It sounds like work on the next major Sonic game has started. There are some things SEGA is keeping in mind for the future such as more playable characters, a better story, avoiding repetition of previous Sonic levels, and expanded combat.

Here’s the full roundup:

Sonic Prime release date

Original (10/27): Sonic Prime, the upcoming animated series from Netflix, now has a confirmed release date. Although it was previously rumored, the streaming service has come forward with the news that the show goes live on December 15, 2022.

Below is the official synopsis:

Sonic the Hedgehog loremaster

SEGA is interested in hiring someone to be a loremaster for the Sonic the Hedgehog series, according to a LinkedIn listing.

The Blue Blur has been around for a few decades. Outside of the various games the character has been in, he’s seen movies, television shows, comics, and more. It now seems that SEGA wants someone to get a handle of it all.

Sonic movie origins SEGA

SEGA Sammy senior executive officer Toru Nakahara, who has also acted as a producer on the Sonic the Hedgehog movies, has provided some insight into the backstory and why the company decided to pursue films for the franchise.

In an interview with Pia, Nakahara said that even though Sonic has been a popular video game character in Japan, due to many factors including SEGA withdrawing from hardware department after the Dreamcast, there were times when Sonic was unable to flourish.

Sonic essence

Sonic the Hedgehog boss Takashi Iizuka has spoken about the essence of the series and what makes a new entry in the series great.

In Iizuka’s view, it’s all about the “fun feeling” you have while moving. He told Eurogamer that regardless of whether it’s a 2D or 3D game, linear or open zone, “it’s really that sense of enjoyment that I’m running with Sonic at a high speed and [thinking]: this is fun, and I’m having a great time.” However, he doesn’t believe it simply comes down to “going fast”.

A release date has been announced the for Sonic the Hedgehog 3 movie. The film will hit theaters on December 20, 2024, it’s been revealed.

The Sonic the Hedgehog 3 movie was confirmed earlier this year. Also in the works is a live action series focusing on Knuckles – Idris Elba will be back to voice the character. Paramount+ should be hosting the show once it’s ready for primetime.
