Sonic Unleashed can win back the fans, says Sega

Speaking to Kikizo, Sonic Team studio director Yoshihisa Hashimoto has said that Sonic Unleashed is going to be the game to win back the hedgehog’s fans.

“Yes, I do think so,” he said when asked if the faithful will be pleased.

“Because Sonic Unleashed has the game play elements that loyal Sonic fans want. It is not designed to be in the same format as classic Sonic, but we took out the best part of classic Sonic and successfully revived it to be a new Sonic the Hedgehog of the 21st Century.”

Hashimoto did concede, however, that criticisms of recent Sonic games were valid.

“I think the fans’ evaluations are fair I often read the forums run by Sonic fans on a routine basis,” he said. “I hardly feel any discomfort from their comments. I often find myself rather agreeable to them.”

  • Sonic Unleashed playable on PC thanks to modders

    Sonic Unleashed has been brought to PC thanks to intrepid modders. My first question was “why?” but now it’s “how?” as the game doesn’t exist on the PC format. it’s simple: they modded Sonic Generations to make it run silly. No wait, that’s not simple at all.

  • Army of Two, Midnight Club: LA and Sonic added to 360 GoD

    Nelson’s confirmed that Army of Two, Midnight Club: LA and Sonic Unleashed have all been added to 360’s Games on Demand service. Buy them. You may as well. Apparently, “THE BEST WAY TO SEE LOS ANGELES IS AT 245 MPH.” You can’t argue with that.
