Sega Open To Reviving Sonic’s 1993 Arcade Game, But Needs Your Support


Back in 1993, when arcade gaming still played a poignant purpose within a video diversion industry, Sega AM3 expelled a pretension called SegaSonic a Hedgehog. The platformer-action diversion got compared to Marble Madness and was a initial time players were introduced to Mighty a Armadillo and Ray a Flying Squirrel.

The diversion was also a Japanese disdainful (although it could be found outward Japan in singular supply) and while ports and re-releases were deliberate over a years, nothing of them saw a light of day. That could all change, though, according to Sega’s Yosuke Okunari. During an talk progressing this year with Game Watch, he mentioned a probable return.

While a Sega Ages growth group doesn’t have any skeleton to pier additional Sonic a Hedgehog games during this indicate in time – or Puyo Puyo titles, it’s always open to more. It all depends on either or not fans uncover their support for a existent ones. And hey, if there’s adequate adore (in terms of sales) – there only competence be a possibility of Sonic’s arcade entrance creation a comeback. Here’s a full translation, pleasantness of Oni_Dino from Nintendo Everything:

When we began work on SEGA Ages for a Nintendo Switch, a volume of titles in growth were limited, so we motionless on a lineup that consisted of a initial dual entries in a Puyo Puyo and Sonic series. If this collection of SEGA Ages titles is successful, afterwards I’d contend we’d unequivocally like to cruise releasing some-more in those series. The arcade game, SegaSonic a Hedgehog, has never been ported before…

This isn’t a initial time Okunari has pronounced something like this. In an talk with GameNuke in Jan final year, he settled how a Sega Ages group could potentially localize games that have never been translated before though would need to pull a greeting initial (from fans) and get some formula out of a other releases.
