Speaking with Retro Gamer magazine in their newest issue featuring a making of Sonic Adventure feature as teased before, Sonic Team’s boss Takashi Iizuka, who also directed Sonic Adventure (as well as Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic Heroes, and Shadow the Hedgehog), said the following:
“It was the first highspeed 3D action game that also featured a scenario highlighted with six different stories, the A-life Chao, six unique styles of gameplay – it is a unique game offering even 20 years after its release. At the time, it also wasn’t just a solitary software release, it was the title to bring people to the Dreamcast and we were given the budget to make something to showcase the hardware. However, it was the very first 3D game that we worked on and looking at it now I can see the rough edges it has, which really makes me want to remake it again.”
Sonic Adventure was a launch title for the Dreamcast way back in 1998 in Japan and in 1999 in the west. It later got a port to GameCube as Sonic Adventure DX: Director’s Cut, with a PC port of that just a few months after. Then it got an HD release on PS3 and 360 back in 2010, and then on Steam in 2011.
