One of the big surprises of the past Summer Game Fest was Sonic Superstars, a new hedgehog game that returns to the 2D path with a very striking and colorful aesthetic. Who is behind the game?
Sonic Superstars surprised many fans. Sega was introduced to Summer Game Fest 2023 with its most famous character leaving a classic aftertaste that dazzled a few veteran players of the platform saga.
The game that will soon arrive on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and PC was shown off with a trailer and a few details. Sonic Superstars makes us return to 2D formula with a slight twist both in mechanics and in the visual aspect.
If you investigate a little more in the first information that has emerged, you can know who is behind the development of this new game… and he is a vital figure in understanding Sonic the Hedgehog as a character.
For the first time since Sonic Adventure, original Sonic the Hedgehog designer and artist Naoto Ohshima returns to the franchise, Game Informer notes. As the original character designer for Sonic the Hedgehog and Dr. Eggman, he will bring an entirely new character to the franchise through Sonic Superstars.
Without a doubt, this is great news for fans of Sega’s mascot, since Naoto Ohshima was instrumental in bringing the character to life in the 1990s. Without it we would not have the hedgehog that we all know.
Four characters and also a reborn villain will be in Sonic Superstars
Therefore, now we just have to wait to know more details about the game. Although several things have already become clear to us, such as that we will be able to play cooperatively with three other players while manejamos a Sonic, Tails, Knuckles y Amy Rose. This is the synopsis:
Venture across the mystical Northstar Islands in this new take on the classic high-speed 2D action platformer Sonic. Play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy Rose and harness Esmeralda’s new powers to move and attack in dynamic new ways.
And be careful, because this is not the only return that the game brings us. Sonic the Hedgehog Triple Trouble villain Fang the Sniper returns to ally with Eggmanso we can expect a truly dynamic duo.
