Iizuka stated “From the start of the project, the concept was to bring Genesis-era Sonic and Present-day Sonic together. On consoles modern-day Sonic is best represented by action 3D-action games like Sonic Colors, which switch between side-view and head-on 3D perspectives. Oh handheld platforms, on the other hand, modern day Sonic is represented by games like Sonic Rush and Sonic Colors, where Sonic uses the Sonic Boost to run at high speeds. That’s why we decided to use that style of gameplay from the handheld version.”
