Iizuka: No Game Gear Levels Under Consideration for Sonic Generations 3DS

But Still Calls It “A Celebration of Sonic’s Portable History”

Hoping for some Underground Zone remix in the 3DS edition of Sonic Generations?  What about a rendition of the classic Sunset Park chase scene?  Or how about some Aqua Planet?

Good luck.

In a joint interview posted on both The Sonic Stadium and Segabits, Takashi Iizuka says the development team behind the 3DS version will only focus their portable re-imaginations on titles for the Game Boy Advance and later.

“For the 3DS we wanted to go with systems of more recent memory,” Iizuka said.  “So we are more focused on levels from the GBA and DS.”

Despite that sharp cutoff, Iizuka said the 3DS version “is a celebration of Sonic’s portable history. As such it only makes sense that we keep that history on a portable system. ”

There are other items of note in the interview, such as the re-affirmation of more than 2 acts per world.  Whether those are pure acts or acts masking as mission stages remains to be seen.  More can be read at the link cited above.  Thanks to krazeeKidd102 for tipping us.
