Could this be the end of Sega and Nintendo's love relationship? Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka has revealed that they have canceled the Sonic Generations for the Wii console.
The reason: the Wii can't handle the graphics of the game. Said Iizuka, the Wii's graphical limitations just isn't "a good fit" for their vision of the game.
The primary goal for the console versions of Generations was reimagining the seres' classic zones in vivid, high-definition graphics. The Wii hardware wasn't a good fit for that concept, so we abandoned development on that, and decided that for our Nintendo audience, we would make a fresh start with a N3DS version of Generations."
This would be the first time that Sonic year, will be skipping out on the Wii after having released three exclusive titles on the console since 2006. After seeing how successful Sonic Color's outing on the Wii was last year, it sure is surprising to hear of Sega's decision.
Then again, maybe not. After all, they're coming out with a Wii 2, so maybe they'll have something else in store for Nintendo's new console.
