From Cube.IGN. The ever popular Famitsu Weekly Magazine recently interviewed key members from each of Sega’s development teams. Not much that was said related to Nintendo, but a few the company’s most valuable teams hinted at working with next-generation platforms like GameCube.
Undoubtedly Sega’s most valuable development team, the Sonic Team, was represented by the famous Yuji Naka. When asked if they were working any other platforms besides Game Boy Advance Yuji replied, “We are looking into all platforms.” He then continued to add, “Sonic himself is probably thinking he wants to take a run on other platforms. I’m not sure which ones. We’ll have to ask him.” Vague comments to be sure, but it sounds like Sonic isn’t going to settle for just the GBA. We know Sonic Adventure 2 is nearly complete, and as soon as the team is done making him tear through Dreamcast hardware it will no doubt quickly move onto the much more powerful next-generation systems such as GameCube. It remains to be seen if companies such as Sony or Nintendo will be privy to exclusively featuring the popular blue critter on their systems. No matter what the case, you can all imagine Sonic on GameCube, can’t you? If Sega can accomplish such pretty visuals on the Dreamcast, it would certainly create a Sonic Boom on the much more powerful GameCube hardware.
