    Post SEGA's Takashi Iizuka; the Wii U is where fans of action platform games are going to.

    TSS How long has this game been in development?
    Iizuka – We started prototyping the different geometries and stages during Sonic Generations. So, about 2 & 1/2 years.


    TSS – Who is the main director on this game?
    Iizuka – Morio Kishimoto who did Sonic Colors and Heido Bayashi (sorry if mispelled) for the 3DS version who was the same director of the Colors DS version.

    TSS – What was the reason for going exclusively with Nintendo on these three upcoming Sonic games?
    Iizuka – When we were first developing Sonic Lost World, the Wii U was not even announced yet and we were developing it on PC. So, the Wii U was the right choice for a couple of reasons. First of all, the second screen gave us extra options and advantages also, we think the Wii U is where fans of action platform games are going to. Plus we’ve had much success with Nintendo in the past.

    TSS – Can the game be played on the Pro controller or gamepad only?
    Iizuka – Single player is gamepad only. With two players, you can be on the pro controller while the other is on the gamepad


    TSS – Many on the internet have been comparing the game to Mario Galaxy. Do you feel the comparison is apt, or what do you feel sets this game apart from it?
    Iizuka – Basically, because we have these geometries with their own gravity you hop to, you can kinda see the comparison there, but if you play the game on the show floor I think you’ll see the biggest difference is that it still feels and moves like a Sonic game.

    TSS – Sonic Lost World represent s pretty big departure from recent Sonic titles. What made you decide to change the formula up so drastically?
    Iizuka – Basically, we were proud of our accomplishments on Unleashed, Colors and Generations. But we felt we explored that style of gameplay quite a bit and didn’t want too keep playing in that same space. The developers wanted to explore new styles of gameplay and part of the goal there was to make pure platform action a bigger part of the experience this time. Unleashed through Generations, we are proud of them but focus was pretty much on speed and platforming would happen from time to time, but the developers wanted to make it more of a traditional platformer. Not that we want to lose the speed. That’s why there’s still plenty of running and such. It’s still a Sonic game, but we want you to have more control over the speed this time around.

    Good. Now, I want some adventure and RPGs, please. Zelda and X will both be awesome, no doubt. But hopefully more in those two genres will come.

    If they gave Skies the Wind Waker HD treatment, I'd be the first to preorder.

    Realistically, the only two places to look for platformers are Wii U and XBLIG (Xbox 360 indies). I think that is partially because of the current fad for FPS, and partially because only Nintendo generally takes the time to put out consistently well-designed games (of any type). I'm excited about the new Donkey Kong, and although I am not a big Sonic fan, it sounds like Sega is doing their best to innovate as well. I may need to look back at some of those Sonic titles I passed over.

    No, you have claimed that Nintendo is being this mastermind that has a 'stupid' system disallowing third parties to announce their games. No over exaggeration here. At all. It's EXACTLY what you've stated.

    And don't start another bubble war.

    Something I've learned today:

    - I'm a girl
    - Nintendo is a stupid company with stupid rules and beliefs
    - GameNChick is always right
    - I create scenes all the time.

    Note taken.

    You know, cool. Don't reply. It'll be easier this way.

    You see, whatever I've been saying for the past week to you, has made sense IF you would have thought about it. Yes, I could have made a couple of over exaggerations, however, I NEVER lied in my comments. I understand that you're a girl, however, arguing with you is useless. I'm amazed by how ignorant your arguing is. Your arguing consists of an insult and a sarcastic comment followed by "I'm right and you're wrong" and THEN followed by "drop it".

    It's useless to tell me, then, that you've countered all of my arguments with you with intelligent replies. You haven't.

    Sure, maybe some people here disagree with me, however I have NOT been told so. So you can't tell me that I've been writing non-sensual stuff considered stupid by other users. Calling me unintelligent, saying I write without thinking and calling me a hysterical girl isn't really helping you and your moronic arguments.

    Yes, I have to get a bit on the offensive and expansive side showing exactly why I disagree with you publicly. It seems like anything I say that's against you, you disagree with. No matter what. However, you NEVER state why you disagree with me. You either cling on words, or you say what I've done wrong and saying that you're always right, and I'm stupid. It's not the way an argument works.

    Sure, I'll admit it. You enraged me with your previous replies to me you have delivered on these forums. I tried to reply without any hostility yet you, through sentences, pointed insulting comments at me.

    I'll not be replying to any of your comments on these forums until everything becomes mild, but I'll have you know, I'll never argue with you again. Like stated before, it's useless.
