To avoid a continued down slide in quality, 1UP outlines a simple, four-step plan to help Sega get out of their funk and turn the beloved franchise around. Namely: lose the sidekicks, avoid shadow doppelgangers, embrace speed, and slow the franchise's release schedule to once every 2-3 years.
Still, hedgehogs only have a lifespan of 4-7 years, so perhaps the gravitas of years have affected Sonic's speed and ability to carry on. We shall see with the soon to-be released Sonic and the Secret Rings for Wii.
