[UPDATE: SEGA have since released the following statement in the wake of the Nuremberg Toy fair:
SEGA is yet to announce details of upcoming console video games for Sonic the Hedgehog or further details regarding the new Sonic CG TV series. The recent information coming out of Nuremburg Toy Fair was incorrect. For official and up to date news regarding Sonic the Hedgehog please go to www.sonicthehedgehog.com or follow Sonic on Twitter (@sonic_hedgehog).
We will, as always, keep you dudes and dudettes up-to-date on any and all announcements! – T]
At the Nuremberg toy fair held last week, toy maker Jazwares had a booth showcasing it’s Sonic toys along with this very interesting sign.
If this is correct, it would suggest that Sega have already started work on a new Sonic game which is heading to the PS4, Xbox One and the Wii U.
We all know that Sega intends to release a 3rd exclusive Sonic game on a Nintendo platform at some point, however this photograph would suggest that Sega are already working on the other next gen systems and a Sonic game is in development or at the early planning stages.
If you’ve not been keeping track, this is how the Sonic games are currently lined up.
- Sonic Lost World (2013)
- Mario & Sonic at Sochi (2013)
- Unannounced 3rd Nintendo exclusive (expected 2014).
- Unannounced Next Gen Sonic title (2015).
What is however significant about this image is that there are no logos for any current gen consoles, suggesting that all future Sonic games will be on next gen systems.
