Sonic Unleashed werd onlangs aangekondigd voor onder andere de Wii en Yoshihisa Hashimoto beweert dat dit de beste Sonic game ooit zal worden. Hij is de producer van Sonic Team en zal er dus vast wel verstand van hebben!
"…Yes, I think this will be the game Sonic fans have been waiting for. Sonic will be reborn in the state he always should have existed in with a new control scheme, fresh new gameplay elements, all while simultaneously returning to Sonic’s roots. Our goal has been to polish and bring to the fore the most attractive elements of classic Sonic gameplay, while also adding something completely new. The whole development team is aiming to make Sonic Unleashed the best Sonic game ever, and that includes the Genesis-era titles! We hope that even people who haven’t played Sonic games will feel "Wow, Sonic is back!" and maybe even be motivated to buy a next-gen game console if they’ve been sitting on the fence."
