Sega's next Sonic the Hedgehog game, Sonic Lost World, will be exclusive to Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. "The onetime rivalry between Mario and Sonic has grown into a friendship that has never been closer," Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said in the announcement.
According to Nintendo, this announcement demonstrates "the commitment we have to bringing great games to the Wii U platform." This comes a day after EA officially announced it was not developing games for Nintendo's latest home console.
While snagging exclusivity for Sonic the Hedgehog makes sense, given the close alignment of Nintendo and Sega's audiences, we're not sure if it's a particularly great sign. You know what system also had a lot of exclusive Sonic games? Dreamcast.
