Sonic Adventure director Takashi Iizuka has revealed during an interview with Retro Gamer (via Nintendo Life) that he'd be up for remaking the 1998 Dreamcast platformer.
The Sonic Team head honcho noted how the Blue Blur's 3D debut was created as a showpiece for Sega's then-new hardware, and was quite unique for the series given its multiple scenarios and mini-games. However, he acknowledged that it's a little rough around the edges by today's standards.
'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,' he said.
'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.'
Sonic Adventure is the Dreamcast's best-selling game with over 2.5 million copies sold, and was later ported to the GameCube, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Sonic Adventure 2 followed in 2001, the same year Sega cancelled Dreamcast production.
