Shown for the first time at TGS, Let's Tap!
and Let's Catch!
– the inaugural Wii games from former Sega executive, designer, and co-creator of Sonic the Hedgehog
, Yuji Naka – were (refreshingly) not what we'd expected from his new studio, Prope. Frankly, we'd expected a Sonic
or Billy Hatcher
-esque platforming title. Wait – what's that, Gamasutra
? Prope's working on a Sonic
-style game? Shocking
Speaking to Gamasutra during the show, Naka revealed that, "At Prope, we're actually actually planning on making a game like Sonic
right now," when asked about his future with character-based action games. "That's what we're making now," he further affirmed.
So ... time for a game of "animal, vegetable, or mineral?" We're going to go with "animal." You can play along in the comments.
