Ah Sonic, you polarising bugger you. ONM reports that – whether you like it or not – Sonic will return with a bang in 2013.

European head of brand licensing at Sega Sissel Henno has told Toys ‘n’ Playthings magazine that the developer is going big on all things Sonic:

“Over the next year there will be a big focus on the expansion of [Sonic licensed] toy distribution across Europe. Similarly, we will also be growing the apparel, publishing and stationary categories. We will have several new digital titles launching as well as a new boxed game, so there will be plenty of opportunities to link marketing campaigns across games and merchandise.”

So more games and more swag then? How does this make you feel? Should Sonic take a break for a while or was Sonic Generations a step in the right direction? Let us know below.
