  1. This was confirmed by the executive producer after one of the fans asked Ivo Gerscovich about Sonic Boom's fate over on the AMA.
  2. So, I have an Idea for a new sonic game. It would be called "SegaSonic: Robot Defender", and it would be released for PC (so I don't have to get SEGA to make it for console). The main game would be 1-2 player local, and 2-4 player online, and would consist of a few zones with a few acts each, and the gameplay would have badniks coming down from the top of the screen, and Sonic, Tails, Amy, and Knuckles having to take them out. The special stages would be Blue spheres from Sonic 3, and would be pretty much unchanged. In multiplayer, you can use the special stges as a competitive mode. If one player gets all emeralds, any players currently in the game would be able to use their super form. There would also be a Shop, for getting special items, an inventory to use th items, a Level select that unlocks more zones as you progress, and a sound test that can also be used to find secrets. I don't know how to program, and I don't have any money, but maybe some people do know how to program. If so, maybe I could work on the sprites and some other people could work on the code/level design... But i'm not sure. I hope atleast a few skilled programers and designers see this...
  3. So I decided to make this topic in case it hasn't been done yet. Serving as a reminder of such announcements & that way all related discussions can go here in the future. Unless something comes out of said announcements that need another dedicated topic for. As we all know, Sega will be having new Sonic news on the 20th of every month of this year. The 20th being tomorrow morning in some time zones, there will be a broadcast to announce such news. What it'll be? We have no clue as of yet. But feel free to speculate on what you think we'll see from this. I feel like it'll be either; IDW sneak peeks. Merchandise Film sequel announcement possibly. Maaaybe a TV show or animation. Might be too early for a new game reveal, but I could be wrong. Won't have to wait too much longer though. Just... try to keep expectations low.
  4. Sonic have lots of games are hits,downfall and mixed but now here telling you're prefect idea for any fan idea for sonic game,but fan service sonic game! Now this call "Sonic:Grand Fighters" a third installment sonic fighting (along with like Sonic:Fighter & Sonic:Battle),imagine smash bros but sonic characters and it 3D area fighting it like Sonic:Heroes but more open world similar to Sonic 06 (but better) and Unleashed.

Players control three characters (switch back in non-cooperation modes) at a time while the others characters are used as switch between them during battle. Gameplay functions similarly to Street Fighters,Smash Bros,Jump series,Budokai Tenkaichi & Ultimate Ninja, with players moving around a 3D space and utilizing various combos and special moves to attack their opponents. The match ends when one team depletes the other's health bar. Also either damage the opponent or provide various status effects like increasing attack power, or lowering the opponent's defense. Players are also able to customize their character's jutsu and select two support characters to use in a match. The playable characters also have unique moves, their different types to use . Shot moves center around using a projectile to damage the opponent from a distance. Power moves focus on dealing damage quickly in a single move. Trap moves generally involve using a type of bomb to surprise-attack the enemy. However, only a limited number of moves can be selected. Shot, Power, and Trap must be allocated to three slots: Ground, Air, and Defend Players can use various items to attack enemies or grant them like power-ups, along with Wisps,Shields,Invincible & 1-Up to defense or attacks enemies and their melee weapons like blasters,swords and hammer to use in battlestage. Their are 20 stages in;10 starters one and 10 are unlockable stages,base on classic levels and levels from precious past sonic games with options to selected any music from soundtrack from previously sonic classic and modern era's (similar to smash and Raging Blast) remix zone levels or songs from Crush 40 Finally taking some rips from Dragon Ball Z games,players can transformers characters in their super forms like Super Sonic,Super Shadow,Super Silver,Super Tails,Hyper Knuckles,Burning Blaze ,Neo Metal Sonic,Super Mecha Sonic Super Mighty,Super Ray and now introduction Super Amy.

Leave you're down below comments?
  5. My honest answer? No. The crush was played as a running gag, yet people treated it like a serious plot point. All the characters were exaggerrated in certain games, yet people only seemed to notice Amy. She was only the "damsel" in CD. People forget she rescued herself in Adventure 1 and even Sonic in the next game! I see there's been more focus to make Amy more "independent" but wasn't that already her arc in Adventure 1? In that same game, she stopped Sonic and Tails from turning Gamma into scrap metal. In the Adventure games, she turned Gamma and Shadow against the villains. (However, a common argument I see is that anybody else would've did the same. False. Sonic and Tails were going to turn Gamma into scrap metal. Sonic butt heads with Shadow because of his immaturity. On the other hand, Amy wouldn't fight Zero until he hurt the bird she was defending) In Heroes, she had her own sidekick and team.
  6. I've heard most people say Sonic has always been 15. Sometimes I hear 16, 17, any many more. Though I'm sure he's 15, What's your thoughts? (If you can, please put in the ages of Sonic Characters that are not on this list) http://sonic.sega.jp/SonicChannel/character/tails.html
  7. Hey guys, Thought I'd share a piece of SEGA news that I managed to grab the exclusive on. In 2003, there was an official push to create a movie based on the Dreamcast game Headhunter. The Dreamcast title had been released in Europe in 2001, with a 2002 re-release on the PS2. Headhunter: Redemption would follow up in 2004, and it's likely that there was an attempt to capitalise on the upcoming title by creating a movie based on the first title. The film was sent to a British screenwriter (based in Los Angeles at the time) called Ben Trebilcook and he was hired to write a Treatment (outline of the story) and the screenplay. He completed the task and sadly the project was canned within the next year. I scored an interview with him in January for my radio show, and I had been primed with the cyberpunk work he had been involved in (and when I saw the name Headhunter for SEGA, I was obviously shocked and ecstatic!) as my show is primarily about cyberpunk as a genre. I raised it during the interview and he gave a little coverage and agreed to send me a copy of the treatment and screenplay. Sadly, he couldn't find the screenplay but he did find the Treatment. I've hosted the screenplay on my website, as well as the video and what little information we have on the film otherwise. www.cyberpunkstudios.co.uk/headhunter I hope you guys enjoy this slice of SEGA history that never came to be. I know there are Dreamcast and general SEGA fans here too, and thought this might be of interest Roareye Black.
  8. Over the past year there has been a lot of discussion about a hypothetical Sonic Adventure remake. Iizuka first said he could see the rough edges the game has and would be interested in remaking it back in January 2019 in an interview with Retro Gamer Magazine. This fueled discussion in the community. Regardless or whether one is happening or not, what would you like to see in a possible remake? When it comes to the gameplay, I'd like to see the movement and physics made more in line with the classics. Keep all of the new abilities Adventure introduced but make the physics a lot more accurate to the classics. This is kinda what Adventure was going for but didn't quite get right. The movement in Adventure is arguably the best Sonic has controlled in 3D but they can take it a lot further and fine tune it. Make the movement more momentum based and follow the physics rules of the classics, remove the scripting and duct tape holding the gameplay together. Perhaps add the peel-out to Sonic's move set, etc. Sonic Utopia is a great example of what I'm referring to when it comes to translating the physics of the classics into 3D. When it comes to the presentation, I'd like them to go into the archives and dig-out all of the original design documents and design guides. The proportions of the characters were originally a little shorter and stubbier. The character designs were in between Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic. These design guides exist for every character. There's no doubt tons of concept art for the HUB worlds and stages in the archives which they could bring out and recreate without the limitations of the Dreamcast. However, I'm concerned they won't and will use the current character designs and art style from Lost World-Forces. A lot of game companies require new games to use the current on-brand character models and design guides. The art style is a big part of Sonic Adventure's charm and a remake would fall flat with the look of Forces.
  9. Amy was "cute and full of energy", as she would call herself in Adventure. But I don't know what she'd call herself nowadays, except "bland". I get trying to have her "mature" (which she was never as bad as people made her out to be in the games imo) but couldn't you have done that without taking her whole personality? She's so boring now. The last time she ever did anything was Unleashed. Nowadays she's just... there. Like I said, I feel like people really exaggerated her crush on Sonic. They saw Sonic X and used that interpretation on everything. Her crush was only emphasized for jokes like in Heroes. People talk about her chasing Sonic but they never talk about her speech to Shadow about how not all humans are bad. Or turned Gamma against Eggman through kind words. Or had a robot chase her throughout the entire story just to protect this bird. And then put the hurt on him when he finally got to it. Amy was a sweet character whose bad side you wouldn't want to get on. If Old Amy was "immature" and New Amy is mature, shoot, give me immaturity any day. Amy used to have been my only problem with the IDW comics. She felt like Sally 2.0 to me. Then someone told me it because she was overworked since she's the only Sonic character besides Knuckles that would be leader. That made alot of sense to me.
  10. So recently, Takashi Iizuka has been telling us that 2021 will be the year of Sonic. So that's probably when the new Sonic game will be released. But, what is the game? Some fans have been saying there will be a Sonic Adventure remake, some have been saying another modern sonic game, however, majority of fans have been talking about a Silver the hedgehog game! Is this true? Let's go into more detail! So Silver the Hedgehog made it's first appearance in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) as a playable character, then has been in other side games such as Sonic Rivals 1 and 2 and Mario and Sonic Olympic games etc. But fans have been wondering will there be a Silver the hedgehog game? Well, our first leak is music, Bentley Jones. who is a composer, wrote many songs such as: So much more for Sonic and SEGA All Stars Racing, and Dreams of an absolution for Silver's theme in Sonic (2006). However, during June in 2019, he released his own remix to the song "Dreams of an absolution". Many fans have said this is a rumour for the Silver the Hedgehog game but nor SEGA or the Sonic Team in general have confirmed this. Another rumour is during SXSW 2018 Sonic panel. During a Q&A, somebody told Takashi Iizuka "Will there be a Silver game? A canon? Spin-off or what?" Some of the people in charge of the Sonic panel such as Tyson Hesse, and Keys were actually impressed with this Question, Iizuka responded with "We have a lot of Fans of Silver the hedgehog and we will like to do something for Silver in the future." So a lot of fans are talking about this rumour. Some other leaks are that SEGA released a picture on January 20th 2020, the back ground picture was Silver's Symbol, they also have been adding him to other game's such as Team Sonic Racing, so this is not confirmed yet, but these are very strong points, so who know's? Will there be one in the future?
  11. Welcome to Funny Debug Mode stories. This is a thread where you can tell funny/interesting stories about things that happened in Sonic games while you were using Debug Mode. I have a story that happened in Sonic Mania. I was going through each zone and generally just messing around. When I make it to Mirage Saloon, I look through the stuff I can place, I see that I can place the Caterkiller boss. So I place like 10 of them but nothing happened. Until I got on the train in Act 1. All of a sudden i'm ambushed by my team of giant Caterkillers and I almost die multiple times. Then I get back onto the tornado still being attacked by giant Caterkillers. So I just go for it and try to defeat as many as possible. Luckily defeating one Caterkiller makes the sign appear. But when the sign fell it missed the tornado and I was immediately killed by a Caterkiller. So I have to start the level over. But for some reason, instead of sending me to the beginning of Sonic's Act 1 I'm sent to Knuckles' Act 1. Everything went back to normal after that but it was still a very funny and weird experience.
  12. Hey All and welcome. I'm new to Sonic Stadium but I've been a Sonic fan since 2004. Again, I'm new to this forum so I must apologize beforehand if I'm violating any rules or terms of this forum. Over the years I've dedicated my time to collecting all the comics in 1 big Digital Collection, since trying to get them all physically in mint condition is nearly impossible. I've managed to rack up quite a collection, and now that it's gotten relatively big I want to be able to share it with everyone so all can have a chance to read the wonderful comic history of the blue blur. It's a shared Folder on my Google Drive that everyone has access to and I update it weekly with new issues that I find. As of right now there's around 25+ Series in it, but I've still got a ways to go. I have miniseries, specials, game tie-ins, digests, the new IDW series, etc. The comics are in .cbr & .cbz format, which can be read by any comic book app. you just need WinZip or RAR to open the zip files that contain the bigger collections of comics. I have a Group Chat on Instagram so I can message everyone at the same time when I add new comics to the collection. My instagram is [removed -staff] so if anyone's interested and or never got to read all the comics then be all means join me on instagram, or share your email and I'll grant ya access
  13. This is my theory for the next Sonic Movie. Enjoy!
  14. This Is my Sonic The Hedgehog Collection I've been collecting Sonic Merchandise for a few years now and still collecting. Will update this thread when I get new Sonic Merchandise
  15. I have a idea...there will be Sonic VR game based on the movie called SEGA & Paramount Games's Sonic the Hedgehog Speed Chase at Dave & Buster's in the future. Just like D&B's VR games like Jurassic World, Men in Black, and Terminator Dark Fates. Here is the game plot you can do: First level is you are middle in the highway in Green Hills in the police car with Tom, he tells us Dr. Robotnik stoled power rings from Sonic, his wife, Maddie was been captured by one of Robotnik's badniks, then Sonic shows up and he tell us to follow him to chase after Robotnik's plans, then we will chase after Sonic while he was speeding through the highway in our police car chase, but not until one of Badniks shows up and you have to destroy them with your laser guns as Sonic destroys one of Robotnik's badniks as you are entering the huge power ring as Sonic speeds through you are middle in the desert in the Egypt in second level as Robotnik fires at you then you have to chase after him while Robotnik keeps fires at you as soon you are about to die as Robotnik charges his laser gun, Sonic quickly uses his ring and use ring portal to China for third level, as we see Robotnik got Maddie with him, Tom tell us to stop Robotnik before he kills her, we see Sonic speeds through great wall of China, as Robotnik escapes with Maddie to San Francisco (Fourth Level) then we will aheading to the city to chase after Robotnik, while that there was too many badniks around the top of the building, Tom tell us they are about to destroy you, not until Sonic saves the day and he using his spin attack to destroy all Badniks, he tell us Robotnik holds Maddie in her prison cell at Robotnik's secret base, as Sonic throw his ring to portal, we are in Robotnik's secret base in Egg Metropolis as final level, we will see Robotnik in his Death Egg Robot for final battle as Sonic and Robotnik are battling each other, you will get a lot points to shoot at Death Egg Robot as we see Tom runs and avoid attacks between Death Egg Robot and Robotnik's badniks to save his wife Maddie, you are driving faster to the doom because there was dead end as Robotnik will destroy you for good, not until Sonic stops him and as his Death Egg Robot was been destroyed by Sonic's power rings. As Maddie kisses Tom, Sonic tell us that the base was about to blow up, as we will finally escape from Robotnik's base as Sonic throws his ring back to Green Hills. Back at Green Hills, they are saying thanks for saving the world from evil Robotnik. We will see Sonic speeds up for another adventure. So what are you think guys?

  18. Hi everyone, and welcome to Obscure Sonic Characters! This is a place where you can talk about Sonic characters who have been forgotten by Sega. I doesn't matter if they're from the games or the comics. As long as they have been part of an official piece of Sonic media, they count. Anyway, that is all for now, bye!
  19. Title says it all.. (I haven’t played Shadow yet so I’m not including that in my list by you can) SA1 > Unleashed > Generations > SA2 > Heroes > Secret Rings > Colours > Lost World > 06 > 3D Blast > Black Knight > Forces
  20. Hello! Welcome to Lost Zones and Beta Elements of Zones! Here you can discuss lost zones. (For example, Dust Hill Zone) Or beta/unused elements of zones. (For example, The unused UFOs from Marble Zone) You can also tell people about any big discoveries made in the fandom! That's all for now, bye!
  21. http://nintendoenthusiast.com/news/sega-detail-2014-support-13-3ds-4-wii-u-projects/ Hmm, I'm intrigued, 4 (hopefully big and grand) console installments, and for the 3DS some nice Hatsune action and quite the flow of company to boot! What do you make of this?
  22. Okay here is a fun topic! if sega adds a generations section to the avatar marketplace or avatar awards what are some good ideas.(if avatar awards how do you think they should be unlocked?) i want to see a wisp as a avatar prop!
  23. So I've lately been looking into shows I'd love to see in HD/Blu-Ray. Some shows this works very well and really creates a difference, but it all depends on the original source material. Star Trek the Original Series was shot on 35mm film (Higher Resolution than Full HD) so can be transferred across fantastically with some touching up. Star Trek Next Generation has been announced, which was shot in 35mm film but editted on video, meaning they put the entire show back through the post-production process to edit it together on film for HD transfer. But then I looked at certain shows as Home Improvement, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Red Dwarf etc, all classic shows which would look phenomenal in HD but unfortunately were all shot natively on video, so the only sources there are will be in Standard Definition. Applying this very base knowledge, I started looking to see if the Sonic OVA (the movie) would make a plausible transfer and found a few very interesting things about all the Sonic series. Please bear in mind my information on print, negative tech specs of Sonic series is from IMDB and is considered accurate at time of writing but could easily be proven otherwise. Sonic the Movie (OVA) Imagica Corporation, the company responsible for the movie, built the entire movie on 35mm film but the final print was NTSC Video. This information doesn't specify whether or not it was editted on video or on 35mm film, but if the final production print is video, then to save on costs the editting is likely on video too. If the editting was put together on 35mm film, then the Blu-Ray/HD transfer is a relatively simple and costless manner of making a second final print of the editted movie in an HD format. Couldn't be simpler. If the editting was done on video then the process becomes more costly, and the likelihood of this showing up in HD decreases hugely, especially as it's not something that will be showing up in syndication anywhere. They would have to enter the original 35mm negatives back into the whole post-production phase again and re-edit the entire movie before transferring it to HD for Blu-Ray. Post-Production is a very costly thing, so this would definately reduce our chances of seeing the movie on Blu. For arguements sake, say it was released on Blu-Ray, the detail would be great to see (Those matte paintings are gorgeous enough in SD, highly detailed work went into some of the art and HD would show that up in a way it literally has never been seen before). I would also like to see some quality extras, maybe a few interviews with the writers and voice actors. Whilst they would likely be Japanese, it would be a great translated interview. Also a small documentary about SEGA's position in the market at that time (Sonic OVA was launched the same day as the Dreamcast). Lastly, there would be a chance to redub the audio for DTS-Master HD 7.1, as the vast majority of shows are doing now, with the current cast of voice actors. That may be the small push SEGA might consider to join this up with the current titles and put in the minor financial support the release would require. Sonic the Hedgehog (SatAM) This one is a big surprise to me. Considering the prints on the DVDs and the different TV channels it has appeared on, I was led to believe this show was strictly made on video to cut all costs down as small as possible. According to IMDB this is not the case. In fact, IMDB states that this show is not only filmed on 35mm, but the final prints of the episodes were also in 35mm prints. This would be a very odd choice for a small childrens cartoon to make, but ultimately if true would be the saving grace for the series in Syndication. If this show's final prints are all 35mm prints, then it would cost next-to-nothing to just slide them into an HD format ready for syndication and/or Blu-Ray distribution. Just thinking of a Full HD Robotnik's mouth ("Snively, what colour is my hearrrt?") is enough to churn your stomach and realise that this must be done. The downsides for this show do not lie with the prints, nor the cost of releasing them (Effectively very minor). But in the rights of distribution which took years to arrange just for the video print copies that were slapped on DVD. In order to get a Full HD transfer means attaining the rights to the original prints and that adds complications to the procedure a thousand-fold. If it were to be released on HD, it would be great to have some additional extras on the following the show has and maybe interviews with the voice artists such as Jim Cummings. Maybe even modern interviews and see if the cast can still perform the original voices. All cloud-9 stuff, but it would be a very interesting extra. Regardless an easy Full-HD transfer would be enough for me so long as someone can get those rights all ironed out. Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog (AoStH), Sonic Underground and Sonic X Unfortunately there is no information on these two shows so I have no idea of their ability to be made Full HD or not. AoStH has a chance, being made by the same production company as SatAM raises it's chances, but as it was a different team the choice of video may have been made to fund a larger number of episodes. Sonic Underground came at a time where the move to video was getting weirdly more popular despite the looming HD era (Which may not have been on consumer radar, but the industry had full knowledge of it). I have no idea how likely a 35mm print is of this show. Personally though, a Full HD version of either of these shows is likely pointless. AoStH was a great show but with so many episodes to transfer for a show who's art quality was akin to someone just having a laugh, the conversion would feel slightly wasted. Maybe it'll improve the animation quality a bit (Lose the motion-blur) but that would be about all. For Sonic Underground, there are a lot of fans for it and ultimately the artwork renders may look much better given a full conversion. I just really don't want to hear those God-awful songs halfway through an episode ever. If they can cut the music out of the middle of episodes, they might sell it to me. Sonic X was abysmal. We all know it. Still, a Blu-Ray transfer would likely sell to fans, there are six people in the world who like it. Having said that, it was made cheaply in the early 2000s, and that says it all to me. It will most definately be a video print as production companies grew strangely more and more incompetent future planning during this time. Many TV shows of this era was still show on video despite HD being only 2 years away, and that's definately incompetence on anyone's part (Bearing in mind this was a time before recession and the media industry was loaded with cash). In any case, without knowing the original prints I have no idea whether this would make a good HD conversion and generally I don't care... though I'd still buy it on Blu-Ray if it came out. I like to torture myself... shut up... >.> What do you guys think? Would you want to see any of these in Full HD, given the option? If so, what extras or updates would you like/do you think would match each series? The cost of transferring these is cheaper than making a new series/film from scratch and in the case of SatAM the financial cost of transfer is minimal, however the older the shows get the more complex the rights get.
  24. http://www.sonicstad...hings%E2%80%9D/ I don't know what to think about this. I enjoyed Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, so I'd like to see more of that, and Sonic and co were a nice fit to SEGA Superstars Tennis and Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. I think Sonic would work well exploring other genres, but I think some he may be better kept well clear of. Either way, it's nice to see Mike Hayes appreciates imagination and would seemingly like to see Sonic explore more genres.
