Core Magazine recently had a chance to talk with Sonic Team director Takashi Iizuka about Sonic Adventure 2 for the Sega Dreamcast, where he touched on a number of subjects, from the game's location of San Francisco and other locales to the main theme and story.
"Players used to be impressed with 2D side-scrollers like Sonic. Nowadays, Sonic is one of the only '3D action' game series in existence. We're very proud of the tradition we've built. We look forward to continued evolution in the series."
