An upcoming game installment in the Sonic the Hedgehog series under the production title Project Sonic 2017 is set to be released during the holidays of 2017. The game will be developed by Sonic Team and was first mentioned at the Tokyo Joypolis Sonic 25th party on 25 June 2016.[1] At the end of the Sonic 25th anniversary party on 22 July 2016, they released the first teaser. The game will mark the return of the collaboration between both Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic since the twentieth anniversary game Sonic Generations. Despite initial popular belief though, this title is not a sequel to previous games.[2]

Development

The game was announced at Sega's 25th anniversary of the series at San Diego Comic-Con on 22 July 2016, where it was announced alongside Sonic Mania.[3][4][5] The game will be developed by Sonic Team, the same team that had previously developed Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations,[6] and will be headed by Sonic series veteran Takashi Iizuka.[7] The presence of Classic and Modern Sonic lead some journalists to believe it was a sequel to Sonic Generations,[8] but Iizuka confirmed that it was not a sequel, but a new, stand-alone title.[2] The game will be released for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in late 2017.[9]

During the Sonic live stream that was held in Japan due to the release of Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, it was revealed that there will be a new character scheduled for this title, along with a new component for gameplay besides the regular 2D and 3D gameplay.[10][11]

Characters

Reception

The International Business Times praised Sega's approach of announcing and releasing the duo of Project Sonic and Sonic Mania in the same year, stating that catering to the new fans with Project while catering to the old-school fans with Mania could help repair the series's poor reputation with more recent releases, and in turn lead to a "Sonic renaissance".[13]

Trivia

  • This is one of the first games to be announced for the Nintendo Switch, as well as the second third-party title announced for the system.
