Takashi Iizuka, primarily responsible for the Sonic Team, spoke to Gamasutra about the future site of the Sonic series that they developed, and has promised a new release "standard" Sonic The Hedgehog in 2012.
"I would like to make a new Sonic standard, a modern Sonic if you want to call it, both in 2012 and beyond," he said. "I would not say Generations is a new beginning. Instead it is more the peaks of the past 20 years, and that is the way in which we want to approach this. Generations is like picking the last 20 years of history and turn them into a only product fun. "
