Sonic Lost World Announced

Recommended Posts

When did I say I wanted Knuckles or Amy in this game?

 

Just making a preemptive guess.

Give me one good reason why someone like Shadow would be on this new (?) planet.

Because the writers would put him there if they chose to do so. And who would stop them if they were given permission?

 

Exactly what do you know about this new planet or the game for that matter that would prevent him from being involved? Last I checked, there was nothing that confirmed or denied any character except for Sonic and Tails being involved.

Maybe GUN simply send Shadow to investigate, or even to take control of it. I doubt it but it's not that difficult to come up with a reason.

I'm not saying nobody can't appear, but that if other characters do appear you can at least give a better reason than you just wanna see them because they're your favorite character. 

 

Its that type of reasoning why characters like Knuckles, Blaze & Silver are so fucked up writing wise, fans didn't give a damn if their appearances made sense or not.

By all means speculate, but articulate yourself; I'll give two examples of what I'd like to see in regards to speculating about other characters using Shadow.

 

Bad reason:

"HE'S AWSOME AND COOL AND I LIKE HIM AND SEGA SHOULD PLEASE ME"  This reeks of fanboy entitlement, and gives no in game reason for Shadow's presence, or what his role in the story could possibly be.

 

Good reason:

"I think a good way to involve Shadow in this game would be have him investigating the planet as per orders from GUN. If these six guardians prove to be real and they have to fight them all then him and Sonic can clash over how to deal with the threat at hand, and constantly get in each other's way" This is articulate, and unbiased and gives Shadow a justifiable presence.

I would imagine the writers would be told who to put in based on who the researchers and PR types advise would be popular enough to increase sales and recommendations and not unpopular enough to turn people away.  It'd then be up to the writers to justify their presence in the game, which on present evidence they would probably do with a single throwaway line (although we may hope for better storytelling than that).  But the bottom line is that the real reason any character will be in the game is because Sonic Team thought they would help sell it.  The actual logic of the game's premise is a secondary consideration.  Depending on how much they actually care about the plot, it's entirely possible that nearly any character could be justified, or rather rationalised, in appearing.  It's not that hard.

If its purely by popularity alone, then the only one I can truly see making an appearance in addition to Sonic, Tails, and Eggman is Knuckles. 

 

Which means that won't happen, and we'll probably get Shadow or Amy instead.

For all the gameplay problems they had, the Storybook games are a great example of using multiple characters the right way.

 

Technically speaking, S3&K did it before.

I disagree. Sonic games aren't about story and this'll probably have no more story than Colors. I think putting a character in due to being liked and people wanting to see them again make sense to me.

 

I'd like to see Espio in the game. Because he's my favorite character. What's wrong with that?

So.... any news as to when will we get our teaser / trailer today?

 

We won't be getting anything today. Some folk were thinking that there might be some news in the issue of Famitsu that's out on the 24th, and somehow this all escalated into expecting a trailer today.

Also Black Knight played well with the tropes and gave us some nice insight into Sonic's character. The gameplay mechanics may not have been to everyone's taste, but I thought they handled the story reasonably well. I also will never forget the pokecapn crew's reaction when Amy turns up.

This in theory should be on Monday. But the next time SoA notified that there will be May 29.

 

Also, the next update famitsu May 23. It is unknown what will be in this issue. 

Simply, famitsu on the official site promised more information about Sonic Lost World. :3

Can we get a source, please?

You're missing the point. Its not about whether they show up again or not, its giving credible reason on why they should show up and what justifies it. "I like them" is not enough of a reason for wanting a character in a game, and its vague enough that the writers can do whatever the fuck they feel like with said character regardless if it made sense.

 

Heck, I'd take something as simple as: "They had a case to solve, and help Sonic out in the process" as long it made sense for the characters and their personalities.

If today, then less than an hour.

 

Wow. how did that turn into "were getting a teaser today" Thats just sad, here I was all hyped, I thought it was official, oh well, we should still get info soon enough. and if all fails, we are sure to get info @ E3. 

 

Gosh talkin about E3, I was bummed that Nintendo wouldnt be having a conference, but still we will get info, Im stoked, new info on Sonic Lost World, Smash bros WiiU/3DS , Pokemon X Y (I think) is enough to get me hyped!! although we probably wont get much info on Smash bros, I hope its possible to show at least a tiny teaser. 

 

Anyways back on topic :  Im still very curious about just what that planet is, and how the "puzzles pieces of the world" or "connecting parts of the planet together"  theme might work, for all we know, it could be just like Unleashed, it has nothing to do gameplay wise, its just a story related thing, and you just see the cutscene of the jigsaw puzzles connecting , after a boss or something.

I think Shadow from where I see is the main rival of the franchise. So it wouldn't be a strech to see him clash with Sonic for no reason other than fanservice.

But why does a fan need more reason than "I like them" to want see their favorite characters? Again, the story will most likely be bare-bones, so why do I have to include plot related reasons for wanting them to show up? Of course they'll give some reason for them being there, but those don't really matter to me during the time where I'm just hoping to see them.
