News of a Sonic RPG – currently untitled – for Nintendo DS should send a cold shiver down your spine. Sonic is fast, and that’s about his only notable characteristic. So suited to an RPG he is not. There’s a but.
But! There is was. BioWare – who we knew from an announcement back in September are working on a DS title – are doing the development. And they know their RPG onions – Knight of the Old Republic and all that.
So what to make of all this? Let’s consult BioWare CEO Ray Muzyka: “As huge fans of Sonic ourselves, weâ€™re committed to delivering a truly amazing story-driven experience within the Sonic universe, focusing on capturing the characterâ€™s broad appeal and placing him in a completely original adventure.” Okay Ray, you have the benefit of the doubt for now.
