SEGA of America and SEGA Europe have announced an exclusive partnership with Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe for the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.
The new agreement will make Nintendo consoles the No. 1 destination for Sonic gaming for the next three titles.
More specifics about the games are expected to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
“‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ has proven incredibly successful on Nintendo platforms, and we are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Nintendo,” says John Cheng, president and chief operating officer, 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.”
