    Sega is considering reboots and remakes of older Sonic games

    Famitsu recently conducted an interview with Sega President and COO Yukio Sugino on a variety of topics. Of particular note is one of the questions regarding reboots, following on from the upcoming game Samba de Amigo: Party Central. The conversation then turned to the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, with Sugino revealing that the company is thinking about remakes and reboots for the game.

    Samba de Amigo: Party Central, in my opinion, is not a reboot, but a new part of the series. On the other hand, the recently announced Sonic Superstars is a return to 2D action, and while it’s a new game, I’d like to consider taking some action akin to a reboot. Of course, we have to do new things, but this is not the same for all IPs, and this applies to both new releases and reboots. For each IP, we will choose the most appropriate moment, for example, “This is the best way to do this for this IP”. For example, Sonic is Sega’s branded IP, and we’re looking at not only new games, but also reboots and remakes.

    Fans are currently speculating that Sega may be announcing a remake or remaster of Sonic Heroes based on specific footage from the latest Sonic Central broadcast. The announcement is expected to take place at Gamescom next month, but for now we can only wait and see.

    Sonic Superstars will release digitally and physically for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store in Fall 2023.
