Sonic Team producer Takashi Iizuka has dashed hopes of Classic and Modern Sonic appearing side-by-side in titles post-Sonic Generations, saying that “it won’t be the standard format (for Sonic titles) going forward”.
“In Sonic Generations we have something that is good for everyone,” said Iizuka speaking to GAME during last Saturday’s Summer of Sonic event in London, “and to see classic and modern together is a special, one-off event to celebrate Sonic’s anniversary. So it won’t be the standard format going forward.”
Sonic Generations features both Classic and Modern Sonic each with their own respective gameplay styles. Classic Sonic allows players to play the game in the side-scrolling platform nature of the original, while Modern plays out via 3D gameplay seen in the more recent – and often highly criticised – Sonic titles.
A demo allowing you to try out Classic Sonic launched on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network last week as part of Sonic’s 20th Anniversary celebrations. It’s available to play until July 12th.
Sonic Generations launches this November on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and 3DS. A PC version is also rumoured to be in the works.
