Issue number 6 of ONM is out in the UK, and with it comes a 5 page spread on Sonic Wildfire. As you guys might remember, I posted some scans of ONM a long while back, and was asked to remove them. Although I have come across the scans for this issue, I am not going to post them here. I will instead give a summary of important info coming from the article. This info comes from an interview with Ogawa Yojiro, Director of Sonic Wild Fire.
Development for Sonic Wild Fire has essentially been going on for two years, this year developing, last year testing.
As expected, the game is based off of Arabian Nights, and will follow Sonic’s adventures through a book. We saw some of the influence of Arabian Nights in our E3 demo.
Dr. Eggman (I still say Robotnik damnit!) will be in the game.
Progression on Sonic Wild Fire and the Wiimote is going well, but more uses of the Wiimote than what was shown at E3 will be included. There will also be gameplay elements in Wild Fire that have never been seen in a Sonic game before.
Mr. Yojiro is very happy with the power of the Wii, and believes it is “fantastic hardware”.
Mr. Yojiro would like to create an entirely new series for the Wii that is not related to Sonic at all. He would like this title to take full advantage of all that the Wiimote has to offer.
Sonic Wild Fire is all about going back to the roots of the Sonic series. Speed is the name of the game.
That is just a summary of one small section of the Sonic Wild Fire article. You can pick up ONM #6 on news stands right now…in the UK that is!
No link this time, I want to stay out of ONM trouble!
