The director of 1998’s Sonic Adventure (Sonic the Hedgehog’s first 3D game), Takashi Iizuka, has said that he would be interested in a full remake of the title.
Sonic Team head Iizuka told Retro Gamer magazine that he thought that Sonic Adventure was a little rough around the edges by today’s standards, and that fact sparked his interest in creating a full remake with modern technology and tools.
Iizuka noted that though Sonic Adventure was a high-speed platform adventure game, it also introduced several other gameplay elements through its other playable characters, which also meant that gamers had to play as each character to get the full story. Another unique system introduced in the game was the ‘A-Life’ Chao creatures, who had their own virtual pet mini-game.
Sonic Adventure was the best selling title on the Dreamcast and was later ported to several other consoles, as well as getting a PC release. As such, the game has maintained a high profile and a dedicated fan following across the years. Nevertheless, though groundbreaking in its time, the game has not aged particularly well.
Remakes of classic video games are all the rage at the moment, with 3D platformers such as Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon drawing particular attention and praise from audiences.
