Nintendo Signs Deal With Sega to Make Sonic Games
If you are a child of the 80’s you may be aware of the bitter rivalry that once existed between the Nintendo faithful, who love Mario and the Sega fanatics who praised Sonic the Hedghog. Today marks one of the most surprising deals in recent memory where Nintendo has signed a 3 game deal to create Sonic the hedghog titles. This deal is not to be confused with the fact that Sonic has been appearing on Nintendo consoles for several years now following the exit of Sega from the home console market. Those games were still developed by first party Sega studios. This deal will let the legendary Nintendo developers create Sonic games from the ground up.
Nintendo announced 2 of the 3 games they have in development, the first being a sequel to the cross-over title “Mario and Sonic at the Olympic games” which is essentially a mini-game collection. The more interesting game is called “Sonic: Lost World” which is said to be an action/adventure platforming game. There aren’t many more details about Sonic: Lost World and absolutely no details about the 3rd game. Could this new adventure game be a follow up to the Sonic Adventure series, or a continuation of the older 2D side-scrolling games where most of us 80’s babies first met the Blue Blur? Either way there’s a lot to be excited about when two titans of gaming team up.
