It’s the news we’ve all been waiting to hear. In an interview with Famitsu, Head of Sonic Team Takashi Iizuka confirmed that there is a new Sonic game in development. Not only that, but there are also plans to release a Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

With 2016 being the 25th anniversary of Sonic, we know there will a big surprise to be revealed during the Sonic 25th Anniversary Party being held during San Diego Comic-Con, and this just might be it. Here is what Iizuka said to Famitsu about Sonic (translated by Soah City):

“We at Sonic Team – are developing a completely new game, as well as developing a full movie, actively done by Sony Pictures, and animation on Sonic Boom. We are also ready to improve sponsor ties. The most important thing is not the fact the series survived for 25 years, but how many games [were] developed. Our goal – add something new and overcome any potential hardships.”

It’s a big year for Sonic as the Sonic Boom animated series continues to do very well on Cartoon Network. Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice is also set to release in September for the Nintendo 3DS, Sonic will also be joining Lego Dimensions later this year, and who knows what’s next? Maybe Sonic Generations 2, or even Sonic Adventure 3?
