Iizuka: “We want Mario players” for Sonic Lost World

An Appeal to the Platformer Aficionado
In an interview with the UK’s official Nintendo Magazine, Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka talks about the balance of speed versus platforming in recent Sonic games.  In the context of Sonic Lost World, however, as relayed by Nintendo Everything, get ready for much more of the latter.
Iizuka explains:
Sonic started out as a platform title but, as we got to the more recent ones, it changed to be a more speed-based game. Recent fans will be familiar with that speed-based gaming, but with Lost World, we wanted to win back the platform fans. We don’t just want old Sonic fans to come back, though: we want Mario players and other platform gamers to enjoy the new game, too.
