In a recent interview with Retro Gamer, Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka talked a little bit about the classic game Sonic Adventure and admitted that he has interest in remastering the game provided that Sega would support it. Iizuka stated:
“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. 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.”
The original Sonic Adventure started development in 1997 and released for the Sega Dreamcast in 1999 going on to sell 2.5 million copies. This makes it the best-selling game on the Dreamcast. Later in 2003, the game saw a released on PC and GameCube.
