New Sonic Project(s) in the Works for 20th Anniversary

Guess what: Sega wants to make more Sonic games this year. Since it’s the 20th anniversary of that hip, rude, fast-talking shoe-wearing hedgehog, that’s the theme Sega’s going with.

Japanese gaming news site Andriasang received a press release from the company teasing new stuff in the Sonic department, as well as for Puyo Puyo, a long-running puzzler also celebrating 20 years of sequels. Most recently, Puyo Puyo 7 was seen on the Nintendo DS.

The press release Andriasang got hints at anniversary “projects” for both franchises, which obviously suggests more than one Sonic game this year. Because that’s exactly what we need: more Sonic games like these.

Sega has also whipped up this Japanese site touting something in Japanese about the 20th anniversary. Doesn’t seem to have a lot of information yet, but then again, I don’t read Japanese, so I have no idea. There are no box art pictures, so I figure that means I’m not missing anything.

Wikipedia says Sonic games have sold more than 70 million units worldwide across the series, by the way. Across 20 years. That’s a lot of Sonic games, so I guess Sega has reason to celebrate the milestone.
