The rumour about Sonic Dimensions on the Wii U may have been a hoax, but Takashi Iizuka, the producer of Sonic, believes the franchise is a “perfect fit” for the system. He also seemed confident in the potential of the platform, sharing that:
The Wii was an extremely successful platform. It was totally global. It went into the families that maybe would not have picked up a home console before. It created that living room experience with families, and it had great success. Now, adding the controller, and in a sense upgrading the Wii, it has got potential to further that and increase its customer base.
And while he doesn’t provide any details, he feels the Wii U is “applicable to Sonic”, but they are still thinking of how they “will apply using the controller to Sonic”. But at least they are thinking about it.
