Coming from an interview with ONM...
“Sonic started out as a platform title but, as we got to the more recent ones, it changed to be a more speed-based game. Recent fans will be familiar with that speed-based gaming, but with Lost World, we wanted to win back the platform fans. We don’t just want old Sonic fans to come back, though: we want Mario players and other platform gamers to enjoy the new game, too.” - Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka
Sonic has certainly been on the upswing lately. I really think this outing could be one of the best yet. I know I'm in for a day-one purchase. How about you guys and gals?
