Sega’s Video Game Business Holds Strong Among Bleak Overall Financial Results





Quote
Repeat sales (of games released in the previous quarters) were strong, especially outside of Japan. The performance of new free to play titles was also solid.
Sega expects the strong performance of its video game business to continue for the rest of the fiscal year, including both repeat sales and the free-to-play segment.

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (3DS)
Emphasis on exploration balanced reasonably well with speedy platforming




Quote
Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal is a mixed bag, but a far better game than Rise of Lyric.
I liked the exploration aspect, and nods to Tails Adventures, as well as the characters different abilities and the game playing more like a Sonic game than Rise of Lyric ever did.
I also liked the music and the fact that the game was much more in line with the TV series.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice (3DS)
A Big Improvement over Shattered Crystal




Quote
Stages are far shorter than the sprawling 10+ minute treasure hunts that were in Shattered Crystal, this time taking anywhere from 2.5 to 6 minutes to complete depending on how much exploration you do.
While the level design is largely linear, there are diversions that lead to in-game items and circle back to the main path as well as alternate routes to the goal.

There was a High Demand for the 2D Sonic Games
Interview with Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka




Quote
In addition to the main 3D series, there was a high demand for the 2D action games such as the Sonic Advance series, so we revived the old Sonic as Classic Sonic for the 20th-anniversary title, Sonic Generations.
We initially thought that it would be a 20th Anniversary project only, however after that we had a strong demand for a new classic Sonic standalone title, that became 2017’s Sonic Mania.
We would like to take good care of these two very popular iterations of Sonic’s in the future.

Yakuza Producer, Daisuke Sato, wants to take on developing a Sonic the Hedgehog Game



Quote
“It’s an IP that I haven’t come to before. In the sense that I want to try it,… well, Sonic.
After all, when you hear SEGA you think Sonic. I’d like to get involved once at least.
But for me, the so call Sonic, is well, if I were to do it, I wouldn’t do Sonic as it was.
I would like to make a completely different Sonic.” – Daisuke Sato

Happy 8th Anniversary Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed !!!



Quote
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed had compelling replay value, really tight gameplay and (of course) an excellent soundtrack of remixed songs.
I had a blast playing it, and I wasn't sure how the developers at Sumo Digital could surpass the quality of this game in a future installment.
I suppose Sega felt the same way, since the Sega All-Stars series has been on hiatus ever since.
