You Haven't Seen The Last Of Sonic The Werehog

Sonic the Hedgehog fans (read: masochists) will be delighted to learn that, should Sega see fit to subject them to another Sonic Unleashed title, the lumbering, stretchy "werehog" is almost guaranteed to return.


Sonic and the Black Knight director Tetsu Katano tells Videogamer "You will see the Werehog again." That's despite the general shunning of the Werehog version of Sonic by many longtime Sonic the Hedgehog fans and mixed reviews from critics.

"In principle, I think that the users are always right. They're the ones paying the money and playing the games. If they don't enjoy it, they're not going to buy it," Katano tells Videogamer. "I don't think that producing the Werehog was a mistake per se, but there were a lot of things we could have done better if we had more time and resources."

Katano kind of backs away from confirming a Sonic Unleashed sequel later in the interview, but we have a good feeling Sega sees a winning combination in expanding the Sonic the Hedgehog market to furry enthusiasts. That's something that can only be done with either more Werehog or some disturbing Miles "Tails" Prower spin-offs.

Can't very well have a Sonic post without kicking the old hedgehog while he's down. Honestly, what do people expect at this point? Sega can't lose, they sell these games to kids that don't know any better (and parents who recognize the name as a "safe" game from back when they still were relatively in the know about pop culture) and a fandom whose apologist rage is bested only by Lucas-fellating Star Wars nerds.

As long as there are sex-starved, attention-whoring perverts lurking in the internet forum equivalent of 25-cent peep show booths, Sonic will live on... albeit in depraved gangbangs with Shadow, Tails, and Knuckles (the fisting joke there is almost too easy, so I'll pass). At least now those talented "artists" can render him spitroasting a pal in werehog form, with an extra large meatwhistle befitting his transformation.
