Shinobi 7 launch Sonic: Battle Racers board game on Kickstarter

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

Tabletop game company Shinobi 7 has launched a Kickstarter project for a new Sonic the Hedgehog board game, Sonic the Hedgehog: Battle Racers.

A full overview of the game itself is provided by the Kickstarter page, but the gist of it seems to be a tabletop translation of the ring-collecting, badnik-bopping antics that Sonic’s known for. There’s also a slew of benefits for people who pledge certain amounts to the campaign, such as exclusive Badnik figures and a Super Sonic player piece; as well as Stretch Goals aplenty.

The minimum pledge, which gets you the game and the Super Sonic figure, will set you back around £36. That being said, the campaign mentions extra shipping costs for rewards.

Yuji Naka, Creator of Sonic the Hedgehog Joins Square Enix

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

Yuji Naka, the former head of Sonic Team and famed lead programmer on the original Sonic the Hedgehog game for Mega Drive has joined Square Enix’s game development staff. Naka’s own announcement reveals that he aims “to develop an enjoyable game” but there is currently no word on what project Naka will be working on.

Naka had previously left SEGA in 2006 to found his own games studio called Prope. It is currently unknown if Prope will continue to develop games without Naka. The studio’s social media pages haven’t updated since June 2017 so it could be the case that Prope have also closed their doors, however we have no solid information at this time.
