During the Nintendo Direct yesterday, Nintendo announced the brand new partnership they were having with SEGA with 3 games going exclusive to the Wii U. The first Sonic game was revealed yesterday as Sonic The Lost World which is exclusive to Wii U and Nintendo 3DS and the second game was announced as Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games which features a variety of new challenges and enhanced graphics. Sega has yet to reveal the third game in the exclusive new Nintendo-Sega partnership, but given the recent rumors, we might be looking a Mario Kart/Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed crossover.
Cheng: “Sonic the Hedgehog has proven incredibly successful on Nintendo platforms and we are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Nintendo,” said John Cheng, President & COO, SEGA of America. “As we initiate this new exclusive partnership with the next three titles we believe that Wii U™ and Nintendo 3DS™ are ideal platforms to showcase the evolution of the Sonic brand.”
