After being delightfully surprised by the May 17 Nintendo Direct which announced an official partnership between Nintendo and Sega. In addition to this breaking news, the pair revealed two of three Sonic the Hedgehog games that solely Nintendo Consoles will receive. The titles included the next Mario and Sonic at the Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 and Sonic Lost Worlds. However, now we have a sneak peek into the hotly anticipated third!
Rumors claim that Sonic Paradise will be a racing game set to cap off the trifecta. These rumors come across as valid due to the twitter conversation between Ryan Bloom,Andrea Gil, and Steve Lycett of Sumo Digital and other company. In the tweets, a racing game was only hinted at and some may say teased. However, Sonic Paradise will not be a new installment of previously released titles such as Sonic & Sll Stars Racing or Mario Kart Vs Sonic All Stars Racing.
Sonic is not the only character Nintendo has set its sights on now that it’s closed and exclusivity deal with Sega. This not surprisingly includes the company of additional Sega characters in the New Super Smash Bros. 4 due to release for the 3DS and Wii U. According to an unnamed source close to Nintendo, Sonic will make a comeback, and Bayonetta will join the cast as one of the newcomers of this game.
So expect more in the coming year and expect some very exciting innovations following this year’s E3.
