    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Or it's simply reversing/undoing a Chaos Control, which is more in-line with the premise of the Master Emerald being able to neutralize the effects of the Chaos Emeralds.

    That's never happened in the games.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Are the other four in their Super forms? They go by so fast it's hard to tell.
  4. Didn't Sonic's love of chilli dogs originate with this show?
  5. Here's what he (Tyson Hesse) said: And in a slightly later post:
  6. It's really ignorant and entitled to call a dev team lazy. Almost everyone gets into video game development because they have a passion for it, and often end up working grueling schedules. If you gave Michelangelo 15 minutes and two biro pens, you wouldn't end up with the Sistine Chapel ceiling. That wouldn't make Michelangelo a lazy artist.

  8. I think they'd have said Sonic & Knuckles if that was the case. We've probably already seen the Sonic 3 level - IceCap.

    Archie Sonic Main Discussion

    Yes, it would be a different child. A different sperm would have won. Altering either parent's timeline, even slightly, would throw off the precise set of circumstances that lead to one particular sperm winning, out of several million. The only time travel story I've ever seen acknowledge this was the film "About Time".

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    Team Sonic Racing doesn't have Flight type characters. If it did, Cream and Charmy would probably be in. It's no coincidence that all four revealed Power characters are the established strong guys of the series.
  11. That would be a Sonic racing game without Eggman.

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    This makes perfect sense. Silver and Blaze are two of the more popular characters in the series. Then they needed a Power Type character who wasn't Knuckles, Omega, or Big.
  13. I remember this being said around the time of Sonic Heroes. Does anyone know the source for it? EDIT: Found it: http://info.sonicretro.org/Yuji_Naka_interview_by_Sega_Europe_(January_30,_2004)

    Your Unanswered Sonic Questions

    That's fan art.
  15. The prototype of the unreleased arcade puzzle game, SegaSonic Bros., will be at California Extreme this weekend, at the exA-Arcadia booth. http://www.caextreme.org/ Will anyone here be attending? If so, be sure to get as much footage as possible!

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Metal Sonic's design was updated (made busier) for Sonic Rivals 2. In Team Sonic's story he says "all lifeform data successfully copied" (apparently the Japanese line translates to "your data has been copied"). In Team Dark's story it's "Ultimate life form data has been copied". In Team Rose's story it's "Chaos data has been copied". Team Chaotix's story doesn't have a data-copy scene at all. So it's never stated that Metal Sonic copied the data of Amy, Rouge, Vector, Cream etc. Just Shadow, Chaos, Sonic and maybe Knuckles and Tails.

    Sonic Mania Plus: Instruction Manual

    Why though? It's convoluted and unnecessary. Taking the manual at face value, Sonic 3 & Knuckles was the most recent adventure prior to Mania. Taking the in-game story at face value, Metal Sonic has been stranded on Little Planet since Sonic CD.

    Sonic Mania Plus: Instruction Manual

    "It's up to Sonic, Tails, and their newest ally, Knuckles the Echidna, to defeat the Hard-Boiled Heavies, unlock the secrets of the energy source, and stop Dr. Eggman!" "After reconciling his differences with Knuckles, he's enjoyed some peace and quiet with Tails and their animal friends - until now." "Following the defeat of Dr. Eggman's previous scheme, Knuckles considers Sonic an ally. When Knuckles spots something amiss on the island, he goes to investigate..." The Metal Sonic in Chaotix has the same "brain" as the original from Sonic CD. http://info.sonicretro.org/Chaotix_manuals#Metal_Sonic_Kai_.28Rev..29 Metal Sonic Kai (Rev.) A Sonic-type robot created by Eggman, his main and sub CPU was recovered from his body which was destroyed in the previous confrontation with Sonic. Replaced with a spare body, this time he was reborn by the power of the Dark Ring. With the newly installed Plasner, he is able to shoot a Plasma Pulse Attack from his chest. In Sonic Mania, Eggman has to locate Metal Sonic on Little Planet/Stardust Speedway, which suggests that he's been there since Sonic CD. If Mania was set after Chaotix and Sonic the Fighters and Sonic R, then Eggman wouldn't need to locate Metal Sonic on Little Planet.

    Mania Glitch Thread

    This was an issue with the game. It was fixed in a later update.

    Sonic Mania Plus: Instruction Manual

    The limited edition Sonic Mania Introduction Manual strongly implies that Sonic Mania takes place not too long after Sonic 3 & Knuckles. In the Press Garden to Stardust Speedway transition, Eggman uses a machine to locate Metal Sonic on Little Planet, which suggests that Metal Sonic has been stranded there since Sonic CD. As such, Mania would have to be set before other games featuring Metal Sonic, like Chaotix, Sonic the Fighters, Sonic R etc.
  21. It would undermine the premise of the "Classic Sonic" sub-brand, to the point where there'd be virtually no distinction at all. There are plenty of existing characters for a Mania sequel to incorporate - Amy, Charmy, Vector, Espio, Honey, Metal Knuckles, Tails Doll, the Sonic Band. There is a notable lack of girl characters, but I'd rather see the Mania team create a brand new girl character specifically designed to fit the "Classic Sonic" aesthetic, rather than attempt to reverse-engineer Blaze or Cream.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    None of the above. Yuji Naka left Sega in 2006. Takashi Iizuka has been the head of Sonic Team ever since. The magazine is from 2011. That very issue also has an interview with Iizuka, where he says that there's a human world and a Sonic world. Like, I thought all of this would have gone without saying? Did you even look at the link?
