    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    Hmm!! This does remind me of the discussions and articles that are appearing lately, as far as, what would be the next step for Smash Bros. after this game? Perhaps what it might be is to have the story mode become similar to an RPG, but, using the Smash format for battles. Perhaps though the story mode will introduce levels for characters as well as layers of special moves that would be learned. What Crono reminds me of is, that this could also result in something equivalent to Double and Triple Techs..!! For this game to also be on Switch, it would be a good counterpart to Ultimate rather than a followup game.

    Sonic Mania: Version 1.04 and Plus DLC PS4 Leaks (SPOILERS)

    Yes; there is the question of, what will happen over the next three years (That is, the next new 2D game for the 30th anniversary in 2021 seems like a dependable and wonderful situation, and, there would be just the right amount of time for the teams involved to create it!!) before a new full game would theoretically be released? Mania and Mania Plus in their current forms will have a good lasting effect until whenever the next game would be. Yet, to go through all of 2019, and 2020, with nothing new at all via DLC, that feels a bit unlikely! It is quite complicated to guess what it could be. A single zone or two zone mini story to download at some point before the new game would fill the gap. Similar to Plus it would also be allowing new team members to learn the processes to then work together with everyone on the main new game.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    Hmm... do you think that Smash Ultimate could introduce both Drs. Eggman and Wily?? They would be very close to including most of the main antagonists, so they would probably have decided to bring them both..!

    Sonic Mania: Sequel Speculation (Spoilers)

    !! This does seem to be more fruitful a result from the ruby portal than some type of DLC episode within Forces. And it could turn out to be both! There is the fan character Omelette who is, if i am remembering correctly, enjoyed by some of the Mania team members; especially that the design emerged by chance from their own graphics! In the story of the classic timeline, there has never been much of any damage to Eggman's factories and laboratories. Any relative of his, whether literally that character, or a similar one, could have been somewhere within these complexes learning and developing their own technology etc! Sometime after his disappearance into the portal, they could take Eggman's role. Maybe this power vacuum would also cause more activity from Fang, Bark and Bean simultaneously, or, even later on within the new agme's story!

    Sonic Mania: Version 1.04 and Plus DLC PS4 Leaks (SPOILERS)

    As someone who hasn't yet personally played through Mania, due to waiting to find out if the PC version will ever become available without Denuvo; there have been some benefits: especially how the sense that both Mania and Mania Plus are real games is still sinking in! It is very wonderful and surreal to see even something as simple as a Mighty and Knuckles saved game. It can feel like being a time traveller!

    Sonic Mania: Version 1.04 and Plus DLC PS4 Leaks (SPOILERS)

    I would think it is something like, that where he produced all the music for Mania Adventures, Tee was open to Mania Plus showcasing another amazing musician!
  7. It does seem that it will be an excellent game as many had been hoping! And, there is some chance of a sequel, maybe for the 30th anniversary! That is to say, any ideas and characters, also zones/tracks, that are not included in this one may still have a chance to appear in just a few years!

    Sonic Mania Plus: Official Reveal (Coming July 17th) - NO SPOILERS

    Yes that was unexpectedly strange! it certainly explains why there was not much said ahead of time to watch and wait for this short presentation today! It seems like, beyond the trailer which becomes more amazing as time goes on, it was welcome to revisit it today: Sonic Mania Adventures is how they are choosing to promote Mania Plus before release, rather than with live gameplay. Then afterwards they can do some live playthroughs on the official stream.

    Sonic Mania Plus: Official Reveal (Coming July 17th) - NO SPOILERS

    I am trying to figure out if Mania Plus will actually be part of E3! It feels like maybe SEGA's boothes or something don't open until tomorrow? Edit: Thank you Sonictrainer!! It is good to see that something is on the way and very soon!

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    It is even possible that Gears may be in this game! Multiple modes (an example being: one for cars, one for Gears, one for feet) with distinct, but perhaps related, tracks, would have at least been one option that was available during development. Some characters might be mode exclusive and others could be in multiple ones.

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    I think there could be close to plentiful, and at minimum, around a balanced amount that fans could possibly wish for, Sonic R inspiration! I am not familiar with the Sonic & SEGA games but I have read here that Sumo included all kinds of references! Theoretically this is planned to be the definitive Sonic racing game, comprehensive enough to not need a sequel, and it may perhaps expand from time to time via some DLC options!

    Pokemon Main Series Title Coming to Switch (2019)

    Yes; Some of the shared key conditions of Breath of the WIld and Oddysey, being highly interactive, exploration friendly, and the best visual presentation possible, seem like they will almost inevitably be true of Pokemon as well! There may be some aspects of it that will be unwelcome, but i think the game(s) as a whole will often be incredibly satisfying and surprising in how they are able to newly bring the overall potential of the game concept to completion!

    Sonic Mania: Version 1.04 and Plus DLC PS4 Leaks (SPOILERS)

    It feels like the absence of new full zones within Plus keeps the door open for something else in the future! It would probably not be mentioned beforehand if they were going to do a new zone pack for next summer perhaps, after all, neither was this! ( Zones could also be made available as free downloads one at a time? ) It really depends on whether they would complete this game as a strong and versatile foundation, and then bring everything over to an entirely new game (and product that then has to be promoted etc), or, keep Mania current for some years while the next one is being patiently developed!!

    Sonic Mania: Version 1.04 and Plus DLC PS4 Leaks (SPOILERS)

    Yes, I am flashing back to the original description of Mania being comparable to Sonic 3 & Knuckles! Encore mode seems like it will be very complete and whole in many ways! They are an amazing team who both know their limits, and yet, this mode is the main part of Project Plus, so while some changes and additions we can think of may be in the realm of pipe dreams, seeing what we are seeing today I think it is clear there will be enough in there to amaze and surprise everyone!

    Sonic Mania: Version 1.04 and Plus DLC PS4 Leaks (SPOILERS)

    It seems like it may be crucial to the new plot! It is hard to tell for now, until seeing the full sequence whether the Phantom Ruby is going to basically revive them each separately, or if it will create something new!!

    Sonic Mania: Version 1.04 and Plus DLC PS4 Leaks (SPOILERS)

    !! Perhaps the trailer is coming this week, maybe even today or tomorrow? There hasn't been a new twitter post yet this week, although it is only Tuesday!

    Sonic Mania Adventures (The Complete Series)

    During the stream this episode is revealed to be called "Sonic & Tails"! It is interesting then, whether Metal Sonic will actually be in this next episode or it will be later, but simply previewed early on!
  18. expansivelovestories

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    This was called, as probably an unofficial working title, "Project R" by Aaron today during the stream! It still felt very good to hear!

    Sonic Mania: Version 1.04 and Plus DLC PS4 Leaks (SPOILERS)

    I'm very glad that the stream on twitch was somehow playing with Knuckles & Knuckles allowing the Lava Reef transition to look the way it does! It seems possible that the Metal Sonic encounter was always planned to be like that, or at least an alternate plan to that effect might have been discussed or drafted. Otherwise perhaps in hindsight they saw the opportunity! It really fits and is a great tribute to the S3K penultimate boss!!

    Sonic Mania Plus: Official Reveal (Coming July 17th) - NO SPOILERS

    In enough ways, this is probably somehow the best way to introduce the new additions and changes to the main game, to be discovered and described by excited, surprised fans of the original game I think generates as much excitement and appreciation as possible!
  21. expansivelovestories

    Sonic Mania Plus: Official Reveal (Coming July 17th) - NO SPOILERS

    Elemental shields (and eventually, new items that may appear in the monitors!) could interact with the Piko Piko in unique ways! Much more generally, I think that Knuckles' Mirage Saloon act 1 is a very good sign for any new characters, including Amy!
  22. expansivelovestories

    Sonic Mania Plus: Official Reveal (Coming July 17th) - NO SPOILERS

    I do think that they did not want to overshadow the original Stardust Speedway race with Metal Sonic, and, or, that if Metal Sonic would continue to appear in games, that it also means that each eventual/next encounter does not have to try to live up to a perfect one from Mania!
  23. expansivelovestories

    Sonic Mania Plus: Official Reveal (Coming July 17th) - NO SPOILERS

    It seems hopefully only that a point in time where it happens hasn't been reached yet during the original games! I do really think that Mania Team will be given the honor and chance to make a game which presents what is happening in the original timeline/universe when Amy following the path of the others, and, the Piko Piko Hammer's origin as well! Whereever it comes from, that will be an instantly classic cutscene if it is depicted in-game, which most likely it would!!

    Pokemon Main Series Title Coming to Switch (2019)

    I've become hopeful that at some point within one of the Switch games, perhpas even this one, that there might be some gameplay mechanic where one or two Pokemon can be sent to explore the overworld, from their perspective; with some areas and situations only accessible to them, also determined by size and abilities..!! It couldn't be too complex, and, there would need to be an item they were holding that would warp them back to the trainer! If i remember correctly this idea started as though the exploring Pokemon would have an item (basically like a Pokeball in function) that would absorb the trainer and carry them in this item that would be worn by the Pokemon, which could be opened at any time, perhaps in locations that the trainer couldn't reach!
  25. expansivelovestories

    Sonic Mania Plus: Official Reveal (Coming July 17th) - NO SPOILERS

    There is a small to medium chance for a trailer or screenshots today isn't there! That is to say, today a stream is coming in about two hours. The modern/racing game is considered highly likely to have an additional revealing or trailer; but, Mania Plus is happening much sooner and multiple games have regularly been receiving new updates in the streams! I do think that although the basic information has been sent to press, there will eventually be a trailer!!
