One of the main sore points about Sonic Unleashed was The Werehog, a new alter ego for Sonic that helped to represent everything that is wrong with Sonic Team's continued abuse of Sega's once-loved mascot. Naturally, since most people hated it, Sonic Team has suggested that The Werehog could return, continuing the studio's commitment to making everybody sad.
"In principle, I think that the users are always right," states Sonic and the Black Knight director Tetsu Katano. "They're the ones paying the money and playing the games. If they don't enjoy it, they're not going to buy it. I don't think that producing the Werehog was a mistake per se, but there were a lot of things we could have done better if we had more time and resources.
"If I think of any ideas then Sonic Unleashed 2 will be the time for that, so I don't really have an answer for that. But you will see the Werehog again."
No announcement has been made regarding a Sonic Unleashed 2, so this is all hypothetical. Of course, it was never the Werehog that was the trouble with Sonic Unleashed. It was the piss-poor level design and unforgivable forced replay of stages. Don't worry though kids, I'm sure Sonic Team will make sure we see plenty of that as well.
