Sega’s mobile divisions have been on a tear this year. In particular, Sega Hardlight has enjoyed success through its continued support of Sonic Forces: Speed Battle, and now two new releases through the subscription-based Apple Arcade: Sonic Racing and ChuChu Rocket! Universe.
In this interview, Tristan sits down with Hardlight producers Joel Atkinson and Paul Twynholm about developing both titles, working with Sumo Digital on translating the console experience of Team Sonic Racing into a mobile package, reviving the CCR franchise after nearly a decade of dormancy, and working with Apple as a business partner. We also ask what Hardlight’s partnership with Apple potentially means for non-Apple devices and players.
