SEGA will continue releasing their retro content in various ways

Can't top the classics

SEGA has been putting out their retro content in new ways for quite awhile now. Mobile ports, Switch releases via the SEGA AGES line, a Genesis Mini on the way, and so much more. Should SEGA be worried about inundating fans with too many revisits to their classics? According to a GamesIndustry interview with SEGA executive vice president of publishing John Clark, they don't have any plans on stopping.

"When do you ever stop reaching the audience? There's always an audience there on one format or another. We've got great content and we're never going to saturate the audience for all of that retro content, so I think we're going to continue to bring it out as broad and wide as possible."

Preparations for the Blue Blur's 30th are in the works

Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka recently talked a little bit about Sonic's upcoming 30th anniversary, but Game Informer has pushed him a littler harder on the topic. Here's what Iizuka had to say when the topic came up yet again.

“2017 was a big year for Sonic. The next big year for Sonic is 2021. That’s the 30-year anniversary for Sonic. We are now preparing.”

2011 was a big anniversary for Sonic, which gave us Sonic Generations. Can fans expect another big anniversary tie-in game for Sonic's 30th anniversary? Iizuka wasn't ready to give up specifics, but when ask this question, he let out a chuckle and simple said, "Maybe."
