Nintendo talks possible future partnership with SEGA

SEGA and Nintendo revealed the Sonic Boom video game at an event in New York last week, which will mark the end of their exclusive deal allowing the latter publishing rights for the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.

After the game launches Sonic will presumably continue on as a multiplatform hero, however, that doesn't mean SEGA and Nintendo are through. In fact, it is possible that we could see a similar arrangement in the future, according to vice president of licensing for Nintendo, Steve Singer.

"[Sonic Boom] is the last in this current agreement but that doesn’t mean that there aren't other opportunities in the future," Singer told Examiner in an interview. "They’ve been a good partner, we’ve always worked well together and I think that there’s always good things that can come from people that have good relationships."

He later added, "If you look at the history, at one point we were competitors and now we’re very close partners. So I think there’s a lot of pride in both organizations based on how this partnership has initiated and gone on for as long as it has."

Sonic Boom is slated to release in 2014 for Wii U and 3DS, expect further details in the coming months.
