    Is Sonic still "cool"?

    The main difference between sonic now and sonic in the classic era, is that back then sonic (in the video games at least) didnt try to act cool. He just was cool by the things he did, the actions he took. This is a key difference between the two. This changed a lot with modern sonic, mostly because sonic team thought to make him say "cool" things. Hes still action oriented but more often can be annoying and somewhat talkative in later games. I still find both classic and modern to be cool personally but I do think classic sonic is a lot more cool in his action-first, impatient, minimally talkative way.

    This is like real life independence day for the sonic franchise. We may bicker over things like was SA2 ever good, or nostalgia pandering, but gosh darn it at least sonic looked like sonic in all of that (*cough were hog cough*) Now all we need is a captivating, militaristic speech giver and a battalion ready to storm SEGA HQ. We'll continue to not agree on anything, there will be bickeirng back and forth, tostitos will be there for product placement. It'll be great!

    I dont know who the target audience of this movie is.

    If this movie does flop I really hope SEGA or anyone else doesnt get the idea to blame sonic fans. Because they should have known from the start that this would not work. It is amazing the difference in which Nintendo handles its brands vs SEGA. Nintendo acts in a way that shows that they think about the long term consequences of their decisions and it is abundantly clear. They are more conservative but they care about their characters and protect them and their reputation. Thus, they maintain high quality and consistent popularity over time. SEGA will try anything in the moment with sonic as long as it makes them a quick profit, and does not ever seem to think about the long term consequences. A few smart people (who have been long gone from the company) made sonic what it was but SEGA today does not deserve their mascot. They dont create this but they are fully responsible for allowing this to happen. It's their most important IP and should always be handled with care.

    I want sonic to be super popular as well but I already know this wont do it. Because this isnt sonic. Sonic actually does have an identity, contrary to SEGA's mishandling of the brand since the 2000s. I'm just too aware of what sonic has been from the beginning and why it ever worked in the first place. And most people are. This is an abomination compared to that. Sonic will never be anything like the MCU, it is completely different in every way. Sonic l's biggest problem in 20 years has been that it hasnt focused nearly enough on just being the iconic character he already was. This is adding gasoline to that fire.

    I just dont think anyone was expecting sonic to be 1:1 with the games design. No one was. We knew he'd be different. But we thought he'd still be sonic in proportions. The humanoid thing was a joke no one took seriously. This is just a bad idea, no matter how you spin it. It's not going to make sonic more popular than ever or anything silly like that. It's just meme fodder.

    I sort of dont even care. You cannot do THIS to your biggest brand. This is not the result of careful thought. This will not catch on in positive sense. They had to know people would react like this. Companies pay smart people to figure that out for them. This is not in the vein of detective pikachu or anything like that. Those designs still maintain the design essence and proportions of the originals with some modifications. This is a short gym rat in a sonic costume.

    Again, it doesnt seem like you're much aware of the franchise history. Sonic has already been that in his life. He didn't need to do THIS.

    In the 90s for a time, it is factual that sonic was more recognizable than Mickey mouse and mario in the western world. This was acknowledged by marketers at the time. I can find a link for you, or you can do it yourself.

    This literally looks like a short gym rat dude in a sonic costume. Hes only missing a tapout shirt. I'm hurt and shocked. And hurt. And shocked. And hurt.

    What on earth are you talking about marketable to a wider audience? Have you no awareness of the franchise history at all? Sonic was once more popular than mario and Mickey mouse in both the US and Europe. Sonic's design was the one thing that maintained his appeal throughout all the mistakes of his games. It did not need any help whatsoever. This is actually a disaster.

    I agree with Shadowlax. Sonic is kind of being sent to die here and I dont think SEGA has any clue about it at all. I am now convinced that SEGA itself has become the problem. They allowed THIS to happen.

    So........ I'll just go ahead and throw that out the window. This now looks like a disaster. This is more repulsive than Sonic '06's design by a quite a large margin. I hate everything about '06 Sonic, and this is much worse than that. Oh boy. I think I may need to sit out the franchise until after the movie. I'll finally go play zelda or something.

    I think it will be a more modern sonic with added "realism" like in that picture a few posts above. I do hope though that if it does turn out to be "classic sonic", meaning that sonic has his classic brown/black eyes instead of green, that some fans do not get salty over it. For one, I've never been a huge fan of the distinction in the first place (although it makes sense and I get it) and would rather sonic just be called sonic in the mainstream. I'd also like the series to follow suit and just put it's best foot forward with one idealized sonic in the main games, but that's another thread. Anyway, brown/black eyes vs green eyes, hope people dont care either way.

    Kind of agree with this. Sonic in s3k was very very similar to SA1 sonic, minus the green eyes. In fact when the in game model first appeared I thought that's exactly what that was. His spines are a tad longer, that's really it. I know what a sonic boom is. Sonic however is not actually moving at those speeds in the games, despite the effect. I think awhile back when the games were first releases it was calculated that his speeds were actually in the 300s of mph based on his in game velocities. Have to find that reference but I remember it. I could understand the argument though, so I dont blame you for thinking that.
