During its SXSW panel today, Sonic Team made a flurry of announcements regarding its blue hedgehog. The biggest of which is that the next mainline Sonic game is already in development. Takashi Iizuka, the head of Sonic Team, made the announcement but did not elaborate further on gameplay, title, or release window.
However, there was plenty of other smaller news items to hold fans over. Along with some new details about how customization will work in the upcoming Team Sonic Racing, Sonic Team also released a new animated video by the same talent responsible for the well-received Sonic Mania Adventures. You can watch the video right here:
