Sonic Boom (Working Title)

The silhouette makes it look like Sonic is wearing a jacket.

In the words of Sherlock Holmes "you wear a jacket"

I wonder if they will include the Chaos Emeralds or other Sonic fare.

Unless...

...he has plans to change what the series will be in 2014?

They did say it was a big year for Sonic, didn't they? As Jack Skellington would say, what does it mean, what does it mean?!

 

If they change the character designs to look like those, then they better have some damn good gameplay to back it up. All I'm saying

If they do, I wouldn't expect them to be of much importance, given the short duration.

Basically, I'm imagining this will be like Aqua Teen Hunger Force but with Sonic characters, when I try to picture the duration. Plots are likely to be 90% self-contained, with occasional two parters or recurring characters.

So I've finally caught up on this thread.

Firstly, I think that Tails is the only silhouette that looks spot-on. Sonic and Amy look fine though. Like everyone else I cannot fathom just what the fuck they were thinking with Knuckles. Oh well, I'm sure we'll get used to it eventually if it is a redesign; he may actually look not half-bad. All we've seen so far is that he is taller and considerably more muscular. Buffles may end up looking less stupid than we think.

Also, I noticed that some have been referencing the TSSZ rumour of a 2014 Sonic reboot/radical new direction. While this may or may not be a new direction, I think we can safely say that even if it is, it's purely coincidental as TSSZ probably pulled the whole thing out of their ass in the first place. If it turns out they were accidentally right, it means nothing and doesn't make any other part of said rumour more likely to be true.

I can't help but think that these are not actually Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy. Now hear me out. They all have differences from their game counterparts ranging from minor to major.

 

Tails' tails seem smaller or possibly 1 tail instead of 2. Chances are thats just what it looks like from just the shadow though.

 

Amy looks like she is wearing something new entirely that is not her usual outfit. Ever since the Adventure games she has had the same outfit in the main games, so I would consider a change in clothes a notable change.

 

Sonic has more quills sticking out, like the fan film had. And he looks like he is wearing something like a jacket or something. Sonic's primary appearance is wearing no clothes except gloves and sneakers. Giving him clothes now is really random.

 

Steroids the Echinda speaks for itself.

 

Point is that maybe, whatever the plot may be, it has characters that look like them or they are from an alternate universe or something. These changes are too out of left field and drastic for me to believe that this is the new look they are getting for the series. Especially when Iizuka is apparently making sure the series stays true to the current universe. They could be just doing what they did before they revealed the Deadly Six when all we had was their silhouettes and the tagline was whether they were friend or foe. Maybe they want to keep it a mystery and let the fans speculate. Or outrage in this case. 

 

............Or I could be dead wrong (probably) and this is the look we are getting as time progresses. Considering Knuckles hasn't been shown off in Lost World yet and that he hasn't been seen in the Archie Comics after the Worlds Collide crossover, this could be a possibility, or at least in Knuckles' case.

I want to say this:

 

I actually like Knuckle's redesign if what Radrappy drawn is accurate. I always thought to myself that Knuckle kinda suffered from the same effects as Shadow, which is the Sonic clone syndrome. Not as bad, as he has certain exclusive traits like the wall climbing, but after three characters who were similar in size (Sonic, Amy, Tails) and considering Knuckle's backstory as the protector of the Chaos Emerald, he wasn't that interesting. Big and the Chaotix were much more interesting design wise than Knuckles was.

 

So to redesign Knuckle to be quite big and strong, and it's a bit of a tribute to certain cartoon characters of traditional tribes of ancient civilisation lore. The tall, muscular and stoic character. The guardian you don't want to mess with. 

 

Knuckles actually looks like a guardian for once. I like that. I'm for the redesign.

I took a crack at myself, but interpreted the shoulder bumps as some form of clothing.  So uh yeah,  Sanic rescue squad goooo!

Nice work! Really digging Knuckles design here, just the orange vests are pretty bleh, but I can see what you were going for!

Honestly Amy changes outfits so often outside the main games she's prolly the least offensive to get new threads.  I'm really curious what they came up with.

It's funny, other places that are not Sonic-orientated seem to take very little care when it comes to the actual silhouettes and are more concerned as to whether this would bring Sonic back into the market or not. Shouldn't there be at least some care as to whether Sonic will bring in new fans or not rather than what it looks like? Sonic X was seen as pretty bad by Sonic fans but you cannot say you haven't found one Sonic fan who says they didn't find Sonic through Sonic X or it's comic.

Its really a case of demographics; casual fans take it in stride, but we're hardcore fans and we take any change a lot more harshly. Tru fax.

CG = "computer generated," and CGI = "computer generated imagery." Very little different between the two. xP

Ya know what, say what you want about the design but I'm glad Knuckles is actually one of the protagonists again. How fucking long has it been since I could say that with confidence.

This looks slightly more believable, this is how I seen them myself personally besides Amy having a frill skirt and Tails wearing a tool belt.
