  1. What you're saying doesn't make sense. The art assets for Sonic 4, Secret Rings, Black Knight etc. would be useless for the purposes of this 2018 racing game. Comix Zone was developed by Sega Technical Institute.
  2. I think you're overthinking it. They needed Power type characters for Amy and Shadow's teams, but Big and Omega would probably have been too large and wide for the purposes of the game (hit boxes and such).

    Team Sonic Racing - Reveal Trailer

    If he meant characters who've never been playable before, he would have said. In the stream Aaron said that Tangle probably won't be in Team Sonic Racing, noting that it's been in development for a while. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fp2k9EIcsJo&t=24m40s

    Sonic The Comic - Online!

    Any idea how long the story will run, how many pages are left to go?

    There was never an "issue" with Mighty. Sonic Team simply didn't want to use him. The character is wholly owned by Sega.

    Sonic The Comic - Online!

    Exit: Sonic was great. Like reuniting with old friends. Is there a time frame for when the rest of it will be available? Will it be the same art team?
  7. We were posting at the same time, obviously.
  8. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Team-Sonic-Racing-Sega-Nintendo-Switch-010086770070/481595318 Various Characters and Classes 15 playable characters from across the Sonic Universe and 3 distinct character types including Speed, Technique, and Power classes.
  9. Some of the ambiguity was intentional. One of the Japanese SA2 guide books has Rouge's report on Project Shadow. In it, she states that the whereabouts of the escape pod ejected from the ARK is unknown, and that nobody knows for certain whether the Shadow they locked away was the original, or a duplicate created by Gerald on Prison Island. The Shadow the Hedgehog game did away with that ambiguity though.
  10. It's downright delusional to think that Sonic Mania wasn't a huge boon to the Sonic brand. It's delusional to think that Sonic Forces didn't do further damage to the brand's reputation. This isn't a matter of opinion. It's a fact that the Sonic brand began its life with a reputation for high quality games (Sonic 1, 2, CD, 3, Knuckles). It's a fact that the Sonic brand has gained a reputation for low quality games (Shadow, 2006, Secret Rings, Black Knight, Unleashed, Free Riders, Rise of Lyric, Shattered Crystal, Lost World etc). It's a fact that Sonic Mania is the most positively reviewed game since Sonic Advance 1 - but with more visibility as a key home console release. It's a fact that Sonic Forces received the same lukewarm-at-best reception that Sega have been trying to shake off for over a decade now. It's a fact that in 2018, Sega are still investing in and hyping Sonic Mania whilst leaving Sonic Forces behind. Every entry in the New Super Mario Bros. series was positively reviewed and sold bucketloads. The contemporary New Super Mario Bros. games outsold the two Super Mario Galaxy games. Sega would love to have a New Super Mario Bros. on their hands. Any publisher would. The NSMB series lost some cred with hardcore gamers for two reasons: 1. In terms of ideas and features, they were a step backwards from Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World. 2. Each installment in the series was very samey, particularly in terms of visuals, music and enemies. Basically the criticism is that they didn't push the 2D Mario series forward. Sonic Mania, on the other hand, despite re-mixing levels from older games, was praised for building upon Sonic 3 & Knuckles, rather than stepping backwards. The new levels in particular (Studiopolis, Press Garden, Mirage Saloon and Titanic Monarch) were considered the high points of the game. Given who the developers are, do you really think a successor to Sonic Mania would fall into the same pattern as the NSMB sequels, with identical art assets, enemies, music and so on to Sonic Mania 1? Perhaps a better comparison would be to Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. They were also back-to-basics revivals of a classic '90s 2D platformer sensation, but unlike NSMB didn't receive any hardcore fan backlash, because they actually felt like a true Donkey Kong Country 4 and Donkey Kong Country 5.

    Your Unanswered Sonic Questions

    Where did you get this from? Tails Adventures only has 6 Chaos Emeralds, for one thing.
  12. The term "mixed" is misleading. It implies that a varied spectrum of critical response ranging from very positive to very negative. Sonic Forces' reception wasn't that. It isn't Marmite. It was almost uniformly reviewed as a 5-6/10 game. In the video game world, that's considered sub-par, a critical dud. For one of the most recognisable franchises in all video game history, it's embarrassing. Sonic Team have squandered all the good will they built up with Colors and Generations.
  13. Sonic Heroes only had three characters per team. They weren't a team in the 32X Chaotix game and had no collective name, they were just a bunch of individual characters.
  14. Metal Sonic Kai is a misnomer. That's just what Metal Sonic was called in Chaotix in general (because he was upgraded from Sonic CD and given a plasma beam). The giant version doesn't have an official name. Other changes: Extra options (Sonic's moves, & Knuckles mode, debug) can be used on save files. You can turn the time limit off. Additional sprites for Super Sonic - rotating on drums etc. You have the option to un-stretch the 2 Player Competition aspect ratio. Different animals in Press Garden and Stardust Speedway Act 2.
  15. https://www.resetera.com/threads/sam-mullen-sega-atlus-if-you-want-sega-ages-saturn-dc-titles-tweet-sega-about-it.36444/ https://www.resetera.com/threads/sega-ages-coming-to-switch-by-m2-eshop-15-classic-titles-starting-this-summer.36107/page-12#post-6802452 Sam Mullen from Sega says that we should let Sega know what games we want to see in the "Sega Ages" line, via Twitter, Facebook etc. So if you'd like to see, for example, the SegaSonic the Hedgehog arcade game finally get a home release, or for the 32X Chaotix game to see light of day again, now is the time to let them know. Remember to be polite about it.
