BioWare Developing Sonic RPG for the DS
06.21.07 - 4:39 PM

BioWare is one of the most respected names in the world of RPGs, developing titles like Baldur's Gate, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and the upcoming Mass Effect. Now, they're teaming up with SEGA, a company developing more and more for Western audiences, to develop an as-of-yet untitled DS RPG based on Sonic the Hedgehog.

"BioWare is one of the hottest names in RPG development in the world," said Simon Jeffery, President and COO, SEGA of America, Inc. "Everyone at SEGA has huge confidence that Sonic is in the safest of hands, and that BioWare can create the ultimate handheld RPG experience for gamers of all ages."

"We're thrilled to be working with SEGA on Sonic, one of the industry's most enduring and compelling icons," said Greg Zeschuk, president of BioWare. "As huge fans of Sonic ourselves, we're committed to delivering a truly amazing story-driven experience within the Sonic universe, focusing on capturing the character's broad appeal and placing him in a completely original adventure," added Ray Muzyka, chief executive officer of BioWare.

The untitled Sonic RPG will ship in 2008 exclusively for the Nintendo DS.
