ToyWorld: “Solid Roadmap of Sonic Games for Next Few Years”

The January 2017 issue of Toy World Magazine contains two interesting bits of Sonic related news, first we have an article which not only comments on Sonic Mania and Project 2016, but also that Sega apparently have a roadmap for Sonic games for the next few years, suggesting that plans for 2018 and even 2019 are already on the drawing board (though honestly that’s not really too surprising).

We also get a rather large advert published by Sega in the magazine which confirms that Sonic Boom Season 2 will roll out across Europe this year as well as confirming that both Sonic Mania and Project 2017 will also release in 2017.

There’s also a large area dedicated to the movie which hasn’t happened in these kinds of adverts yet (other than one line of text), could this suggest that we might be getting some movie news in the near future?

With Toy Fair London and Toy Fair New York approaching, odds are we’ll start to see more news regarding Sonic and his 2017 adventures soon,

Keep checking TSS for more information as we get it.

So a solid road-map of games for the next few years eh? Let the comments flow with all the sequels you want to see!
