The Sonic Team has officially confirmed that it is working on a new game starring the famous mascot of Sega through an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, dean of the press of Japanese video games.
The information emerged during an interview with Famitsu, when Takashi Iizuka said that “we at Sonic Team are developing a completely new game”. Unfortunately, so far no more details are given, but this confirms that a new title of the blue hedgehog is coming.
