A brand new Sonic game is in development, Sonic Team have confirmed, and it will be launching later this year, to celebrate the franchise’s 25th anniversary. In an interview with Famitsu (translated by Soah City), Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka confirmed that a brand new Sonic game is in development, and would be out in honor of the series’ 25th birthday.

“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,” he said.

Whatever the new game is, let’s hope that it will be better than the one they had out for the series’ 15th anniversary- which was the infamous 2006 Sonic The Hedgehog game. The full announcement of this new game is expected to be made on July 22.
