SEGA has 'no plans' to resurrect Classic Sonic for good

Oct 30 // Jim Sterling    @JimSterling

Despite making a huge deal out of "Classic" Sonic's appearance in next Tuesday's Sonic Generations, SEGA has stated there are no plans to bring him back full-time. However, European brand manager David Corless has told fans to never say never. 

"Do you know what? There are no plans, to be brutally honest, to bring Classic Sonic back," he said. "The reason for bringing him back for this game was because this is a celebration of 20 years of Sonic. It was a real fitting time to do it. He’s really well loved. Let’s see how Generations does. You can never say never in this industry, but at the moment there are no plans."

Fair enough, although admitting he is loved makes the decision to keep him retired a little illogical. It's a shame he won't be back for more, especially given how adorable he is in Sonic Generations, but that's SEGA for you! 

Our Sonic Generations review will appear in the small hours of the morning, October 31.
