It’s been over 20 years since Sonic Adventure launched on the SEGA Dreamcast and since then, it’s been regarded as the best 3D Sonic game by many. Since the original release, we’ve had one sequel and ports of both games on many different consoles.
Speaking with Retro Gamer on The Making Of Sonic Adventure, Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka stated that he believes the first Sonic Adventure “is a unique game offering even 20 years after its release.”, he also mentioned that he “can see the rough edges it has, which really makes me want to remake it again.”
It was the first highspeed 3D action game that also featured a scenario highlighted with six different stories, the A-life Chao, six unique styles of gameplay – it is a unique game offering even 20 years after its release. At the time, it also wasn’t just a solitary software release, it was the title to bring people to the Dreamcast and we were given the budget to make something to showcase the hardware. However, it was the very first 3D game that we worked on and looking at it now I can see the rough edges it has, which really makes me want to remake it again.
