Straight from Svend’s other website not named The Sonic Stadium is a very brief interview with Sonic Brand Manager David Corless. How brief is it, you ask? It’s only one question, but it’s a question that has been on people’s minds for some reason. Svend asked:
“Sonic Generations sees a classic and modern form of the blue blur running around loops in the same game. If the gameplay is received positively, do you think there’s an opportunity to bring Classic Sonic back into future titles?”
“Do you know what? There are no plans, to be brutally honest, to bring Classic Sonic back. The reason for bringing him back for this game was because this is a celebration of 20 years of Sonic. It was a real fitting time to do it. He’s really well loved. Let’s see how Generations does. You can never say never in this industry, but at the moment there are no plans.”
If this news comes as a shock to anyone, I’m sorry that you’re delirious. Life goes on as normal. If Sonic’s superior self ever makes a return in the future, we’ll be waiting.
