Sonic is preparing to celebrate an important birthday. In 2021, Sonic as a brand will be 30 years old! Does SEGA have plans for a special celebration? 4Gamer interviewed Takashi Iizuka, the boss of the Sonic team, to find out.
I think planning for this 30th anniversary will have to start now. I would really like us to take on a new challenge.
4Gamer takes this information into account and asks a question about electronic sports. Could Sonic and the world of eSport get mixed up?
I think it's still possible … but Sonic will still be primarily a player in the action platform, so it might not be feasible to get into this field. But I'm always ready for new challenges, as we did with the recent Team Sonic Racing. I think there is always a chance that something appropriate for e-sport can come out of these different projects.
