Very smart move by Nintendo to get Sega to make some exclusive games for the Wii U, if this Sonic game goes back to it's Sonic Adventure roots, or is as good as Sonic Colors or Sonic Generations, I'm sold!

BREAKING NEWS: Miyamoto and Yu Suzuki team up to put out the long rumored and developed Sonic X-Treme

Or you mean Super Mario & Sonic Galaxy X-treme

Yu Suzuki is no longer working at SEGA, and it was Yuji Naka who created the Sonic games. Yu Suzuki worked on SEGA's arcade games, Virtual Fighter, and Shenmue.

I want something that brings back my memories of good times with a chao in sonic adventure. Remember having the memory card from the dreamcast work like a tamagachi for chaos? I want to use the WiiU tablet for that mostly.

Sonic adventure for dreamcast was just amazing.

Good Call.

Sonic can only get better through Nintendo, and Nintendo desperately needs those Wii U exclusives.

Let's hope it's (finally) a good Sonic.

"Finally a good sonic"?

Sonic Rush, Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations clearly never existed, then.
silkrevolver  +   619d ago
Okay, those were decent games, maybe even good.

But I mean a GREAT Sonic.
One to rival the classics in quality, but modern enough to be relevant.
ShinMaster  +   619d ago
Sonic Generations was the better of the recent Sonic titles and it was PS3/360 only. Not on Nintendo.

But honestly, Sonic hasn't been great since the Genesis. Adventure was... good.

Sonic Generations was on Nintendo.

It was on 3ds and was an exclusive version of the game that was very slick.
DivineAssault  +   619d ago
Hope its finally good but im confident it will be.. Sonic on GBA was good so this might be too.. Other than that, the latest ND offered little to keep me content as a wii u owner.. E3 will determine whether or not i keep the thing or sell it & wait for a new model
_QQ_  +   619d ago
They are saving everything for e3, i wasn't expecting much from this direct either.
akaihana86plus  +   619d ago
Yes!!!!, now i'm excited! :3
PopRocks359  +   619d ago
Give me Sonic running away from a pissed off T-Rex and I'll buy it day one.

EDIT: And I wish for Sonic to be voiced by Jeff Goldblum.

Am i the only one who thought the entire direct was awful? They opened up with that Olympic rubbish then just confirmed things we already knew! What is Nintendo doing
NYC_Gamer  +   619d ago
It was the typical Nintendo conference that only appeals to people who already own Wii U
lilbroRx  +   619d ago
The Nintendo directs are not a conference...

They informative trailers for Nintendo games and content.
Theyellowflash30  +   619d ago
Only appeals to people who own a Wii U?

That was the point of the Direct. To announce release dates, trailers, and prices for stuff they have already been talking about.

And everybody who likes Sonic already owns a Wii U? Please tell me how you came to that conclusion.
fossilfern  +   619d ago
That makes no sense... It was an awful conference and with Nintendo not having a big presence at E3 how else will they be announcing WiiU games other than these Nintendo Directs?
akaihana86plus  +   619d ago
What were you expecting to see then? σ ___ σ
--Onilink--  +   619d ago
good god... Whats the point of Nintendo specifically saying that the ND is ONLY about Spring Summer titles, and that there will be one for the new games in June just around E3
PopRocks359  +   619d ago
The Direct left me wanting more but we already know that more is coming from Nintendo before and during E3. I thought no MASSIVE announcements was a no-brainer.
Theyellowflash30  +   619d ago
You knew Sonic The Last World was coming to the Wii U and 3DS as an exclusive? Bullshit
from the beach  +   619d ago
That's awesome!
ThaBlackBaron  +   619d ago
Dayum this games is going to be huge!!! Sega and Nintendo working on a 3D adventure platform game in the Sonic franchise!?!?!!..wow
jcnba28  +   619d ago
Good move Nintendo.
D_RoyJenkins  +   619d ago
This sucks. I love Sonic but now I can't play it. I hope it goes the route of Rayman and goes multiplatform.
MartinB105  +   619d ago
Why can't you play it? Is the Wii U not available where you live?
PopRocks359  +   619d ago
I think he owns neither a 3DS nor a Wii U and doesn't want to pony up for either to get this Sonic game.

Sucks to be him I guess. If this game is anything like Colors, it will probably never lose its exclusivity.
D_RoyJenkins  +   619d ago
Poprocks is right in everything he said. Tough loss for me but I'll have other stuff to play.
LOL_WUT  +   619d ago
Time to buy a Wii U ;)
PopRocks359  +   619d ago
@D_RoyJenkins

N4G logic.

"Nintendo why don't you get more exclusive games?!"

Nintendo gets exclusive games.

"Damn you Nintendo! Now I can't play them on my favorite console! You suck!"

@D_RoyJenkins below

Cry me a river. I didn't hear anyone complaining when Sonic Colors was exclusive to Wii and DS. Gamers can be so unbelievably fickle. Damned if they do, damned if they don't. That's the bottom line right there.

They should make new ones, not take away a franchise I love lol
gedden7  +   619d ago
I just hope Nintendo helps Sega make this game THE BEST SONIC GAME sense SONIC 2!!
jivah  +   619d ago
since*
mii-gamer  +   619d ago
slowly but surely the wii u is making that comeback. Yeah baby
jivah  +   619d ago
No its not. Sega was most likely gunna develop for the wii u anyways. Doesnt change the fact that most other developers dont want to.

This announcement is nothing big. The wii u is like a magikarp tryna attack but cant do anything but splash.
gamer42  +   619d ago
but it still has the potential to evolve into a gyarados!!!! (I too, can use pokemon metaphor.)
#12.1.1 (Edited 619d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(0) | Report
jivah  +   619d ago
But if nobody wants to use it. Then gyarados will be nothing but an after thought. Right now it's a paper weight. devs are saying that... And unless Nintendo puts in some serious work then there's an inevitable death. And I'm sure they know that. I'll wait till e3. Still won't buy it tho
mii-gamer  +   618d ago
oh wow i wish i had your logic. because sega was gonna develop for the wii u that some how negates the positive news. Sonic has a dedicated fanbase so this is good news. Downplay it as much as you want but it shows how hurt you are
Ashlen  +   619d ago
Maybe Wii U will find a niche getting all the games from companies not ready to spend big bucks to join the next gen.
yugovega  +   619d ago
if that is whats happening then its a smart move. so many companies "keeping up with the joneses" causes major failures. see (thq)
Thepcz  +   619d ago
ok, this made me smile
wasnt expecting that at all, very pleasant surprise.

nintendo- i under-estimated you

:)

a nintendo developed sonic game will put sonic back on top with mario

who needs rayman now hahahaha
TXIDarkAvenger  +   619d ago
This is good news for Nintendo, I just hope this game doesn't blow and I hope it does sell.
MaideninBlack  +   619d ago
I have a feeling Valkyria Chronicles has found a new home.
deno  +   618d ago
Looks like I will be purchasing the wii u. Sega and Nintendo in the same house, that is just amazing.
