Yuji Naka says he initially felt “both sad and happy” about Sonic being on non SEGA hardware

Sonic lead creator Yuji Naka has responded to a newly published SEGA Forever tweet about Sonic making his debut on the Nintendo GameCube 20 years ago this month by saying that at the time he had mixed feelings about the iconic creation being on video gaming hardware that wasn’t designed by SEGA. While the SEGA Dreamcast was a great console, SEGA Enterprises chairman, Isao Okawa told press in 1999 that “the future doesn’t necessarily lie in the hardware business. I think in the future there is the possibility of Sega becoming a software-only company… “Even if Dreamcast does sell, we will make that shift.” The company decided to go third party in 2001.
