SEGA has been making a transition to a much more PC-oriented focus recently, but Sonic is still their big name brand. But what about on consoles? Nintendo has just snatched up a publishing and distribution deal with SEGA for the next 3 Sonic the Hedgehog games. The newly announced Sonic Lost World as well as Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games will be published by the Big N in Europe and Australia. While SEGA US will still publish the games here, the games themselves will be exclusive to Nintendo systems, aka the Wii U. It seems Nintendo’s new strategy of forming partnerships (like with Platinum Games) is solid, but will it pay off?

Nintendo also mentioned that they’ll be putting E3 demos up to play in Best Buy stores around the US, so you can have a chance to try the E3 games just like everyone at the show! I really like this, but I’d rather it download directly onto your system. I understand their reasoning though, since E3 demos are typically very buggy and can possibly brick systems due to their unstable nature. Logic be damned! I still would love some E3 demos at home.
