You never absolutely need to be Super Sonic- he's a special bonus. A detransform button is able to be abused as it is, but having it happen in-synch with the mandatory combo moves really bites.
To be honest, I find this quite awesome.
I've always wanted to be able to cancel Super transformation and conserve rings accordingly. Hell, it's kind of a smarter way to play Sonic, when you think about it, only becoming Super when you absolutely need to then just turn back again to save rings instead of just having to wait for them to deplete.
Also, just tested the SKy Fortress boss. 4 hits in the first phase, 3 in the second and 1 for the final phase.
