SEGA says they're planning more short-form animated content for future Sonic games

Well that's great to hear!

Sonic Mania and Team Sonic Racing saw a number of different animated shorts released to promote the titles, and they were all a huge hit. Can we hope for more content like that in the future? According to a Comicbook.com interview with Yukio Kusumoto, Sega's Director of Animation, that will indeed be the case.

I can say we have a plan of continuing this trend creating short-form content per game release, and we can't announce yet, but several projects have been planned; for those projects, we are in early development, but yes, we will continue releasing this type of content.

Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan dev on how the game started life as an NES title

From NES to Switch

Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan hit the Switch back in Sept. 2019, and it certainly looks like something that could have been made for the NES. In a dev blog for the title, we learn that the game actually did start life as an NES project. Check out a snippet from the blog below.

When we started working on Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan back in 2014, it was supposed to be an NES game. I was one of the project leads and helped with story, character development, game direction, and testing. We love Montezuma’s Revenge – so we wanted to create a Montezuma’s Revenge-type clone for the NES. We’re all fans of the Battle Kid games by Sivak Games as well; if you’re not familiar with these two games, they’re platformer homebrew games for the NES.
