New Sonic Game Planned for 2013
With SEGA's restructuring forcing it to focus on a small number of 'key IPs' for game development, it comes as no surprise to hear that the company is working on a slew of new Sonic the Hedgehog titles. "Several" digital releases and a new "boxed" game are planned for 2013.

The news comes as SEGA's European head of brand licensing, Sissel Henno, tells Toys n' Playthings magazine about an upcoming explosion of Sonic-licensed toys and merchandise.

"Over the next year there will be a big focus on the expansion of [Sonic licensed] toy distribution across Europe," Henno explains. "Similarly, we will also be growing the apparel, publishing and stationary categories.

"We will have several new digital titles launching as well as a new boxed game, so there will be plenty of opportunities to link marketing campaigns across games and merchandise." SEGA's last boxed Sonic game was 2011's Sonic Generations - a one-off anniversary title that fused classic 2D and modern 3D action together.
