Sonic comes up on a big anniversary. When we make it to 2021, Sonic becomes a brand 30 years old! Does SEGA have any plans for a special party? 4Gamer interviewed Sonic Team manager Takashi Iizuka to find out.
I think the planning for the 30th anniversary should start now. I really want to have a new challenge for ourselves.
4Gamer takes this information and is about a question about eSports. Is there any way Sonic and the world of eSports could blend?
I think there is always the possibility … but Sonic will always be primarily an action platform so it's not possible to enter the eSports arena. But then I'm always willing to take on new genre challenges that we did with the latest Team Sonic Racing. I think there is always a chance that something that fits eSports might come out of the various projects.
