New Sonic coming to Wii U in 2015?
The cat – or hedgehog – is out of the bag! Rumours suggest that a new Sonic game will be released – not exclusively – on Wii U in 2015.
Talk started after display signs at the Nuremburg International Toy Fair make mention of a “new 2015 title” appearing on Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One.
For those who keep abreast of Nintendo Direct broadcasts, you’ll probably remember that Iwata stated the next three Sonic games were to be exclusive to Nintendo platforms. Iwata’s comments at the time were a little ambiguous so it’s unclear if this game has lost its ‘exclusive’ label or if Iwata was considering 3DS and Wii U Mario and Sonic at the Olympics as two separate titles. Doubtless most will consider it further evidence that third parties have lost faith in Wii U.
We’re always excited to hear a new Sonic game is on the way (yet always slightly let down when playing the finished product) and will be keeping a close eye on developments.
