    As long as it’s not all as low energy as this. Maybe have some action stuff in the style of the Storybook cutscenes. Retro Sonic really doesn’t need to be further infantilized.

    Then again, Chip isn’t one of the characters people ask to come back, is he? It’s usually Tails, Amy, Knuckles, Shadow... Those still have more potential.
    If you look closer, some characters’ stories didn’t really conclude as much as they just... fizzled out. Tails learns to be independent of Sonic, carries out missions on his own (or with the help of other friends), even avenges his idol... and then he just stops and turns into resident undeservedly smug exposition dispenser. Amy discovers she can hold her own in this world, inspires others to be better by her sheer empathy, does her best win Sonic’s affection by earning his respect... then transforms into a stalker freak, followed by generic action girl. Just rewinding the canon back to when they were most in-character, SA2, would let them resume these arcs and conclude them proper.
    Then you have characters whose initial arcs are over, but could get new ones. Maybe the world actually turns on Shadow like Mephiles warns in ‘06. Maybe characters who never really had much development could have their own stories. The potential really is endless.

    I might be crazy, but I think this artwork by Sonic artist Yuji Uekawa could be a good reference.
    The style of the eyes, «merged» hair and certain exaggerated features like the large hands makes her work with the Sonic universe. Meanwhile the overall accurate human anatomy marks her as a different species from the anthros. (Because frankly, I don’t see any complaints that Eggman, chao or wisps should have Sonic anatomy.)

    That was in Mario games less, I mean. And they could still put a Sonic twist on it with loops, corkscrews, some surreal-looking dirt and the temple/ruins I mentioned.

    That reminds me. The Deadly Six’s associated location would also need to be fleshed out. They could be natives of Little Planet, but if you wanna keep the idea of the Lost Hex, sure. Just give it unique worldbuilding.
    Like, say the Lost Hex is a belt of planetoids around Earth/Mobius/Sonic’s™ World™ that only emerges in the event of an extreme chaos energy eruption. I know that sounds dumb, I came up with that in like two minutes, but you get the point. It could even be the origin of surreal landmasses like South and West Side Island.
    And instead of the cookie cutter New Super Mario Bros biomes, why not build whole areas out of the few cool ideas the place does have? The honeycomb level was neat, so you could have a whole forest of weird floating trees like that. And have hives with some weird bee-like creature, and even a golden temple dedicated to them.

    I like this. They look a bit goofy, but badass at the same time.
    The issue with the Deadly Six isn’t just their looks, though. It’s also their one note personalities, their incongruous powers, their lack of context in the story, the generic name of their group... if you were to change them enough to work in a Sonic story, they’d hardly be recognizable.

    See, this is the logical continuation of the themes established in Sonic 1 and iterated on in CD. It just makes too much sense. Maybe to go with the CD connections, Little Planet could be an important location in this theoretical game.
    Not too sure about this. The great thing with this kind of reboot is being able to tell new stories without being restricted by the dark age and meta era. I don't think they should use it to retell existing games just to fix some plotholes. Using individual ideas, like Infinite or the Wisps or Eggman ruling the world? Sure. But straight retelling seems like a bit of a waste.

    I agree with all of this. And while we're working of this relatively clean slate of canon, why not connect the the Classic locations into the overall lore like Angel Island was? Like, what if the Chaos Emeralds sealed within West Side Island were excavated by Gerald, and that's where Mystic Cave Zone comes from? How about even tying Little Planet into it all?
    The clean slate may also lead to more unexpected character dynamics. For example, Knux could remember his job, and Amy could become the go-to third Team Sonic member instead. Shadow could remain dead, at least for a couple of games, and Rouge would investigate Project Shadow for some closure with the help of Vector and Espio.
    With time, I think even some modern era ideas could be Adventure-ized and brought back. You could have Infinite powered by Eggman boss-themed cyborg augmentations rather than the cop-out Phantom Ruby. You could have the Wisps, but less cutesy and more mysterious (like the Kodama from Princess Mononoke), and their transformations could look more badass.

    How dare you suggest the concept of Sonic and Tails actually treating Amy like a friend and Knuckles taking his job seriously? This series couldn't survive a single game that doesn't wank off S3&K.
