Nintendo and Sega sign exclusivity deal

Three exclusive Sonic games set to be released on the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS

 

Nintendo has announced a exclusive partnership with former rival Sega.

The deal will see the next Sonic the Hedgehog game released exclusively on the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS.

Nintendo said more details about the game will be revealed at E3 next month.

The partnership was announced by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata. It was broadcast through Nintendo Direct.

The company also gave the first glimpse of a new Mario and Sonic Olympics game. The new game is set in the upcoming winter olympics in Sochi, Southern Russia.

It is due for release this year.

A statement from Sega also revealed a third exclusive game.

"Sonic the Hedgehog has performed incredibly well on Nintendo platforms and this exclusive partnership is a natural fit for the next evolution of Sonic games," said Sega Europe COO Jurgen Post, reports MCV.

"The Wii U and Nintendo 3DS are ideal platforms to showcase Sonic and we are looking forward to working with Nintendo on these three exciting adventures."
