Sonic Team is working on a new Sonic game, according to Takashi Iizuka, the head of Sonic Team.
The studio head didn’t give any specific details on the game in the interview with Famitsu (translated by Soah City), saying only that “we at Sonic Team are developing a completely new game.”
As first noted by IGN, the game reveal will likely come during the series’ 25th anniversary celebration on July 22nd at SXSW, which, according to the event listing, will include “an exclusive first look at the future of Sonic.”
Iizuka also gave an update about the movie and cartoon series based on Sonic Boom, which are both still in development.
Sonic isn’t the only mascot getting a new game. Shigeru Miyamoto recently said that a “new kind of Mario” game is on the way.
