Sonic Lost World Announced

Recommended Posts

So guys. Who, out of the guardians, do you think looks the most interesting?

 

I'd probably say the one that everyone believes is a girl.

If it turns out to be true, nice to see a female character get a large role again.

Hmm... All seem to have horns, and with the exception of "grimmace" (who is big anyway so it could be obscured) All seem to have tails... Same species? If I had to put elements/animals to them, I'd do this: Slumpy: Water. He just looks like a fish... Waluigi: Trees. He looks like some kind of monkey thing. Not-Bowser: Lava, dead cert. He looks like either a bull or a dragon... Grimmace: Ice. He looks like he's made for cold. He even looks like he's wearing mittens... He's putting me in mind of Bark the Polar bear. His body type makes me think of penguins and seals. I have no Ideas for locations for the other two, but Staff Rider makes me think of a bee. Also, am I the only one who thinks Staff Rider could be female? That "staff" looks a little like a skirt...

We can get the exact time of the announcement. Says Japanese twitter, it will be May 30: ”ティザーサイトに謎のシルエットが!!彼らは敵!?それとも味方!?詳細は30 日に公開!”at the beginning of the day.

 

Current time: 3PM GMT May 29, like a today. 

 

Okay, I think all cooked popcorn and lots of candy. :3

 

Sweet! It's most likely a CG trailer but huzzah anyway!

Looks nice, certainly getting an Unleashed art direction vibe from them.

 

 

I too hope for NOT 6 zones... how great would it be if they pulled some Mega Man-esque shit and after we've done the 6 seemingly main zones the whole scenario changes and rather than just one, they throw another 4 or 5 at us?

I'm happy that we finally get to see new characters again that'll probably play a big part in the game. I like the designs to the guardians so far. Atleast we know that they don't look like a bunch of Sonic clones with the same very similar designs.

I'm secretly hoping Shade 2.0 isn't the girl of the group. We haven't had a female character in this franchise that wasn't stereotypically cute or fanservice-y.

I like the designs. Any character in this series that isn't the standard Sonic-shape-and-proportions tend to be my favorites these days because we already have too many of those samey designs.

 

Plus the Wisps looked like nothing else from the series too and everyone loved 'em so maybe it'll be the same deal here...except hopefully these guys can talk.

Seriously, the one in the middle, looks like Bowser's cousin. Something is telling me that Nintendo have more than just a finger on this game. Also, that female guardian, reminds of that ghost from the Unleashed short.

I dunno, first thing that came in mind, but yeah, definitely looks like it's going to follow Unleashed's style, Pixar-esque.

That's what I thought at first, but then...

 

*snip*

 

We can also say so far, at the very least, they're more fitting than the Black Arms are purely on shape alone. :P

 

I can really see what people are saying about the Unleashed style design going on here, either way. I mean, how they look just from silohuettes and their posing... they've already got so much character to them, each being completely unique in structure! Really hope these guys are explored more than the Wisps were, there's a whole ton of alien design potential now that we've got such varied designs like these.

Inb4 what Blue Blood and me said in Gameplay thread becomes the real deal and the Gamepad becomes a "Miles Electric" menu and let us understand them and stuff

This looks somewhat RPG-ish to me. I'll admit I'm not a huge fan of the Guardian designs - they look like your generic elemental creatures. Then again, this series is aimed at 12-year-old boys, so I understand the decision. I'd personally rather stick with Flickies, or maybe throw in some old characters like Bark, Mighty, and Fang.

Show me how to cook candy please

 

As for the image, I'll stick with what Inferno said. We've got a lot of Sonic-y designs and not too many who have unique proportions. I'm more than fine with this as well.

And...

So in the end...

Iblis monsters look more like Chaos in terms of design. Unleashed are not exactly OK, but look more like twisted badniks. These look like your typical pixar conveyor movie characters.

Yacker, then Classic Sonic. Plz Sega, don't do the "Sonic, Tails, Eggman, and a tag-a-long friend that can't speak" thing again. 

 

Then again turning the gamepad into a Miles Electric type device of any sort would be pretty cool and it'd be a missed opportunity if they didn't. Just no more translation shenanigans...
