A portion of a VideoGamer interview with Sonic and the Black Knight director Tetsu Katano….
VG: What kind of things would you have done differently (in Sonic Unleashed)? Will we see the Werehog again?
TK:For the improvements, I can’t think of anything right now off the top of my head. If I think of any ideas then Sonic Unleashed 2 will be the time for that, so I don’t really have an answer for that. But you will see the Werehog again. I like Secret Rings very much, but when it came to making this title [Sonic and the Black Knight] we chose to do something different. All the good things about Secret Rings belong to that specific game. So in the same way, unless we’re going to make Sonic Unleashed 2 you might not see him again. But if we are going to make it, you might see him again. It’s a possibility.
Out of all the tings that bugged me about Sonic Unleashed (and trust me, there were many), the Werehog stages annoyed me the most. It was a good idea, but did 75% of the game have to be these levels?
