  1. Alright, new Zippo leaks y'all, thoughts?

      I mean, it sounds believable enough, I guess. Nothing out of the ordinary, the usual internal Sega BS that has been going around forever, so it's also easy for someone to just come up with this, but it certainly sounds like something that could've happened. I totally forgot about the Jazwares sign.

      I would absolutely adore seeing in-development screens of that project if it's actually real.

      Well, if it's true then it's such a shame remakes got cancelled.

      I heard a rumor similar to this a couple years ago in a discord server. They did say that SEGA hired a Chinese company to remake SA1 but they weren’t impressed with how the product was turning out. So there might be truth to this.

      could be true, could be false, doesn't seem to matter much at this point.

      Yeah my memory is a bit more fuzzy than not, but I remember hearing rumblings about it several years ago as well; specifically where the info was coming from, and a recent BSC video is what triggered this blog post specifically, so 🙊

      Does Zippo have any stuff like Nintendo he'd share, or is Sonic his one focus right now?

      Man I remember how much I wondered what the 2015 game on the Jazwares sign was supposed to be.

      Sounds interesting. But honestly, what is there to discuss here? Internal projects by SEGA got cancelled. There's no proof to speak of. I don't doubt that this sounds plausible, but there's really nothing else to say.

      I always thrive on more reasons to dump on Sega so I'm down with more ammo :V

      Thank god they got cancelled

      Not really sure to believe it or not even if it does sound like something that Sega would do. I know that there was a Shenmue remake that was in development but was instead scrapped and replaced with ports of 1 and 2. Apparently Sega of China were also working on ports of Skies of Arcadia and others but the retro releases on the PS3/360/PC didn't sell as much as expected, probably also doesn't help with the issues of the NIGHTS port based on the PS2 version that they had done.

      It might have even been exaggerated as pitches happen all the time, it sounds like a pitch that went ahead only to be denied later on.

      Besides something seems off with that post. The Wii U was more or less dead in 2015 with one of the last few games being Zelda: Breath of the Wild that ended up being a Switch launch title. Also to even have a remake, would Iizuka/Sonic Team have to have the go ahead even if they were busy working on something else?

      I will say this; I've noticed SEGA Shanghai in the credits of lots of Sonic games and quickly looking them up on Moby Games reveals how big their list of credits is. They look very much like SEGA's go-to support studio for a lot of things. It seems quite believable that SEGA would off-hand remakes to them and still pull the plug early because of their own mismanagement. We know that Boom was  complete and utter disaster that was at least in part due to their own ineptitude

      (I like how some sources say that these remakes were going great and were top tier while in production while others say they were going poorly and got cancelled as a result lol)

      i feel that even with sega of china handling development instead of modern sonic team, i imagine the developers would had found a way to make the game design worse (esp. for adventure 1), so no real loss there

      he also claimed that we would get news for the next game by the end of march, which as we all now, did not become a reality. I call BS.

    17. Blue Blood

      @FReaK No he didn't. The actual quote is as follows:

      My guess is that this will air from between the next few weeks [from February 5th] and the end of March, and should go over at least a good bit of what I laid out today. We seem due for a reveal here pretty soon, so i'm of the belief that we may be mere days away from something substantial.

      The "when" in Zippo's leaks was only ever a guess and far less important than the "what".

      I just have a hard time believing they'd have ever bothered. Sega knows they can make money just making their legacy titles available with no bells and whistles on nearly every platform nowadays. I mean it'd be cool if they were considering it and if it's true that Boom gave them cold feet (which, if I'm honest, was a failure that deserved to happen) then that's a shame but I can't be too broken up about it.

      I'd prefer they make a new title in that line and just re-release/remaster/whatever the old ones on whatever platforms don't have them yet anyway.

      @Blue Blood thanks for pointing that out, seems like I was wrong there.

      Let's say I will believe him when his previous leak turns out to be the truth. I will wait until then.

      I mean the two aren't really related tbh

      If it's true man did we dodge a bullet with Pontaff being involved

      I know Zippo has a good track record, but I’m not buying this at all. Even if it was true, it’s not like we needed remakes anyway. SA1 and 2 are solid games, not perfect but they don’t have enough issues to warrant a remake from the ground up. If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.
