There are the most number of stages in the Classic Sonic series ever.For that reason I want to say, I try not to overwhelm you so much as to keep your enjoyment.”

Then, the producer made sure to note that nostalgic Sonic fans are in for a treat with this title.

I place great emphasis on classic Sonic fans for being pleased. Even when making a new gimmick, it is conscious of not to remove the level design, appearance and series taste. While making it a new stage, I am making it feeling nostalgic.”
