  1. Could "two worlds" have been mistranslated or overly literal or something?

    Like, what if Iizuka meant something more like "two societies" rather than two distinct planets?

    I'm probably grasping at straws here, I'm just trying to make the Sonic universe less dumb.

      I interpreted it as "one game we built in a realistic environment, the other was thought to be set in a fantasy world". "No connection or lore or anything". But no, they insist on that, so I just give up, sorry, 2 worlds are canon I guess.

      But the Mystic Ruins clearly has ancient echidna architecture. Augh, it's so dumb.

      SonicTeam has liked the 2 worlds idea ever since Sonic X I read. So no, it isn't a mistake, they retcon the series later for humans & animal folk to originally be from 2 different worlds because they were inspired by Sonic X to do so.

      i think it has been confirmed to be two separate worlds.

      honestly it's dumb but i don't see a need to worry about it. it was a thing for a while before we even knew about it so it's not like it's having some huge effect on the series and you can handwave most of the problems with it just by assuming there's been more travel between them than just the heroes and eggman.

      Ian Flynn said that it is two-worlds, apparently it's been a thing since Sonic Adventure.

      It's been said there is an old interview with Yuji Naka where he says the humans prefer to live on the continents while animals, like Sonic and friends, tend to prefer living on the various islands scattered across Earth. However, I've found no evidence yet that Yuji Naka ever said that. No one who ever claims this leaves a source and I've scoured the internet going through interview after interview to find this statement from Yuji Naka, but I've been unsuccessful. Unless it's in a very obscure magazine that has yet to be documented, or I just somehow missed it, it's likely this was made up. If anyone can help me on this I would really appreciate it.

      The only problem with two-worlds is not the concept itself, but the entire way it's been implemented. There are so many questions this two-worlds concept raises: How does travel between these worlds happen? Can anyone travel between worlds? How long have both worlds known about the existence of each other? That's not even getting into game specific questions. If they would just give us something, like a three page comic explaining how everyone travels between worlds, then I think most fans would be satisfied. I know Sonic fans could come up with a satisfying headcanon to explain how the two-worlds concept fits in with each game, but we need some foundation to build these theories on. Right now, we understand and know nothing about it.

      Also, I feel Sega should come up with a better name for the planet Sonic is from then "Sonic's World". It's not like they don't have a planet name already well established with Sonic, just call it Mobius. It's not like details from the old-disbanded western continuity haven't crept their way into the main Japanese one before, the Robotnik name and Sonic's love of Chili Dogs are probably the most notable examples.

      All fans want is a little thought and care put into this...and don't think that's asking for too much.

      @Lord-Dreamerz That's different I think. That was Sonic X and it was more like "different dimensions", you see that around season 2-3. Episodes 50-53.

      2 worlds in the games... I assume it's different planets, because of what the movie did, I - again - assume they want to follow that, makes more sense, or at least they did it well in the film.

      In IDW, Zavok also explicitly says "Eggman has bases on other planets". So Planet Wisp, Earth, etc. In TSR, they are in space with Dodon Pa, and they get warped to different locations as well.

      They just need to canonize everything but I think it's like in the movie.

      I did say Sonic X "Inspired" the new direction, not that they copied the show fully.
