It's been a pretty quiet year for Sonic on Nintendo platforms with Sonic And All-Stars Racing and Mario And Sonic At The London 2012 Olympic Games 3DS being the only new games starring the hedgehog in 2012. However, there's more to come from the hog in 2013 as new games are planned for next year.
In addition to releasing toys across Europe, there are plans for new downloadable titles and, most excitingly more Sonic fans, a new boxed game.
"Over the next year there will be a big focus on the expansion of [Sonic licensed] toy distribution across Europe," SEGA's European head of brand licensing Sissel Henno is reported to have told Toys 'n' Playthings magazine.
"Similarly, we will also be growing the apparel, publishing and stationary categories. We will have several new digital titles launching as well as a new boxed game, so there will be plenty of opportunities to link marketing campaigns across games and merchandise."
Linking marketing campaigns across games and merchandise? That sounds pretty dull but the promise of a new Sonic game will appeal to fans of the hog. Especially considering previous Nintendo outings such as Sonic Colours and Sonic Generations 3D have been pretty good on 3DS.
