Sonic is coming up on a major anniversary. When we make it to 2021, Sonic as a brand will be 30 years old! Do SEGA have any plans for a special celebration? 4Gamer interviewed Sonic Team boss Takashi Iizuka to find out.
I think planning for that 30th anniversary will have to begin now. I’d really like for us to take on some sort of new challenge for it though.
4Gamer takes that information and pivots into a question about eSports. Is there any way Sonic and the world of eSports could mix?
I think there’s always the possibility… but Sonic will always be mainly an action-platformer, so going into that eSports arena might not be that feasible. But then I’m always willing to take on new genre challenges, like we did with the recent Team Sonic Racing. I think there’s always the chance that something suited to eSports might come out of those different projects.
