I received my newsetler from IGN yesterday by email. Take a look at this article about what does Sonic Team has in store for the near future:
It seems that Sonic Team has a few secrets they'd like to reveal within the coming weeks.
When Sonic Team announced that they had four new Dreamcast games in the works, we were shocked to hear that a sequel to Nights was not on the cards. Instead, Japanese gamers got an updated version of Sonic Adventure, a wacky puzzle game known as Chu Chu Rocket and a quirky arcade offering in the form of Samba De Amigo.
Also announced was Phantasy Star Online, but with that title being far from completion, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the Yuji Naka's company had its hands full. However, that may not be the case. Apparently, Sonic Team is set to announce something that will make Sega fans worldwide extremely happy. Unfortunately, we have yet to hear what team leader Yuji Naka has in mind.
There are a few likely possibilities, though. We all know that a sequel to Sonic on the Dreamcast has been confirmed, but we've yet to hear any information whatsoever on the title. It may be the case that Sonic Team is behind the latest installment, and with a release date for late this year, the first pieces of information are bound to be released very soon. Also possible, though, is the confirmation of a release date for Phantasy Star Online. When will the title hit Japan? Gamers worldwide would certainly be pleased to be on the recieving end of some solid details.
Finally, the aforementioned Nights 2 comes into the fray, and to be honest, this is the one for which we've all got our fingers crossed.
So, which one will it be? We're hoping for the latter, but more details on the two confirmed projects would be very nice indeed. Let's hope the wait isn't too long. -- Matthew Langan, IGNDC
