SEGA and Nintendo have struck an agreement to make Nintendo consoles the primary platforms for the next three SEGA games involving Sonic the Hedgehog.

The first two titles, announced at Nintendo Direct today, are Sonic: Lost World and Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, with the third title to be revealed at a later date.

"Sonic the Hedgehog has performed incredibly well on Nintendo platforms and this exclusive partnership is a natural fit for the next evolution of Sonic games" commented Jurgen Post COO SEGA Europe Ltd. "The Wii U and Nintendo 3DS are ideal platforms to showcase Sonic and we are looking forward to working with Nintendo on these three exciting adventures."
