Sonic Team Head Teases the Thought of a Sonic Adventure Remake

Sonic Team Head Director, Takashi Iizuka, teases the thought of a possible Sonic Adventure remake during a recent interview.

It’s been 20 years since Sonic the Hedgehog sped his way into 3D with Sonic Adventure. Being probably one of the more impactful entries in the franchise, Director Takashi Iizuka sat down to reflect on the work him and the rest of The Sonic Team put into their game.

He mentioned the difficulties of building these 3D worlds for the blue hedgehog and changing the core mechanics the 2D titles had created. “Once we went to a 3D world where you could run in any direction, you ultimately were never sure of where to go. This sort of gameplay required a completely different type of level design,” Iizuka says.

Through all of this reflection, however, Iizuka sees the rough edges and flaws. Though his team still had made the most ambitious entry in the franchise, Iizuka still sees room for improvement. “However, it was the very first 3D game that we worked on and looking at it now I can see the rough edges it has, which really makes me want to remake it again,” Iizuka says. And there you have it, the beginning of the long wait for a Sonic Adventure Remake.

True the comment seems rather candid, and there has been no official reveals for any remake. But with the head of the Sonic Team saying he wants to remake the 20-year-old 3D platformer, it’s hard not to get hope for the possibility.

In other recent blue hedgehog news, Sega Europe gave out free codes of Sonic Unleashed. Yes, I meant recent news, the codes are for the recent Xbox One backward compatibility support for the Xbox 360 title.
