Sega Report Hints Sonic Generations for 3DS, PC

[Update: It’s been brought to my attention that PC may not mean Personal Computer, but may stand for Nintendo’s new system codename “Project Cafe.” Stay tuned…]

Sonic’s 20th anniversary flagship title may soon be coming to a 3DS and PC near you.

An earnings report from Sega of Japan certainly claims as much and supports the rumors of a Generations 3DS release as seen on a GameStop pre-order list leaked to the Internet.

Of course, there’s a small chance this could be a simple typo (they happen), but very unlikely.

Much like Sonic Colo(u)rs, the console version was paired with a portable release, though it handled differently from its console counterpart in that instead of focusing on Unleashed-style 2D/3D gameplay, it stuck to the more tried and true Sonic Rush formula on the Nintendo DS. It remains to be seen if a 3DS release would also follow this path.

A PC version would no doubt be extremely appreciated by the modding community, which is making strides in other Sonic games like the old Sonic and Knuckles Collection or the more recent Sonic Adventure DX. But as in the past, the PC version could also fall quietly into the night, as much was the case for the PC port of Sonic The Hedgehog 2006.

A shame, that one. It would have been nice to see fans attempt to clean up that mess.

    More likely it’ll be the new Nintendo console, surely? Sega’s track record with PC ports and Sonic titles not exactly brilliant.

    Sonic Generations on PC would be amazing with true 1080p.

    I have to say, Generations is shaping up to be the best Sonic game in ages. Yes, Unleashed was decent, but the Werehog stages? No thank you. I actually would like to see a Sonic ’06 PC port, fort he fact listed in the article – fans could make it, you know, GOOD. God dammit SEGA hurry up and release Generations or at least the demo.

      Wasn’t the reason Sonic 06 was so bad because we rushed them?

        Did we rush them? I never really paid attention to much that happened with ’06’s release. I wasn’t like SONIC NEXT GEN COME OUT NAO

        On a slightly related note, who here will agree that Sonic ’06 was, in fact, a horrible game?

    So I wasn’t insane when I read about a possible Sonic 06 on PC… I remember seeing that it was only released in Australia, then that info disappeared.

    OK. We’ll see about it, but not doing lazy pots of X360 games with roughly same API as in case of DX is just uberlazy.

    It’s not Project Cafe, in the PDF presentation, a couple of lines below Sonic Generations there’s Virtua Tennis 4, which also has “PC” as one of the platforms, a game that has already been announced for Windows PC.
