Sonic is Best on Nintendo Platforms

Aaron Webber, Sonic's brand manager, has stated that Sonic is a better fit for Nintendo consoles than those of Xbox or Playstation. He says titles like Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, Sonic Colors, and Sonic Secret Rings show that the hedgehog has a Nintendo fanbase. This explains why the upcoming Sonic Lost World launching October 29 for Wii U and 3DS is a Nintendo exclusive. You can read the full statement after the jump.
“If we trace Sonic's third-party roots all the way back to just after the Dreamcast, we released Sonic Adventure 2: Battle on the GameCube and it did phenomenally well. We think that's because there was a lot of overlap between the Sonic/Sega and Nintendo crowd at that time, and we just found historically that Sonic performs really, really well on Nintendo platforms. Sonic Colors did great, Sonic and the Black Knight did well and Sonic and Secret Rings did well — all Nintendo. When we look at the numbers, we thought — this is clearly where our audience is.”
