Geez, where were you guys in 2010 when Lost World was announced? You're all acting like it wasn't even announced until 2013.

Also note that the Sonic Team A games get announced near the beginning of April, and the Sonic Team B games were announced near the middle / end of May.

 

We're getting close. I can feel it.

I bet my avatar for a month that only Sonic is playable in most of the story again.

I'm not sure what they mean by convincing visuals other than increasing fidelity, which will probably be construed as realism anyway. Sega has never had a real problem making games that looked good at the time with that one big exception, regardless of whether they went with a semi-realistic or more abstracted style. I also don't see them really forgoing a lot of the power of the PS4 and Xbone. I like to imagine they're just going to continue the Pixar direction of realistic lighting and texturing in more fantastic worlds.

I am actually a little pumped to see what's been in the pipeline for all this time. After Lost World and *shudders* Boom, I'm just ready to see what Sonic Team A can bring to the table now.

 

And also, I really wanna see it this year... even though it's the 25th next year and it makes more sense...

So, the next game announcement should be somewhere in April. That is, if there will be a Sonic Team game this year. ( I still believe we're getting a game in 2016 ( 25th anniversary)

 

Regardless, I'm hyped to see what game Sonic Team A was working on. Can't wait.

Here's hoping they've got something to blow us away. It'll have had at least three years development regardless of whether it comes this year or the next. That's a luxury not seen by Sonic Team very often so hopefully they've made use of the breathing room. Very excited to see what direction things are headed in.

 

Actually, the more I think about it, Team A's game could be 2015 or 2016 so there's some speculation there. Team B meanwhile should in theory have something for the usual October release window this year since it'd be two years since Lost World and Boom won't have had any influence on any Sonic Team work. I'll be surprised if we don't see something from one of the teams this year.

Still going to give you shit for it.

 

Well, to not feel like a waste of a post. This game is going to be the Unleashed/Generations team, right? Means we got at least some hope for the game considering the games since Gens weren't them.

P.S. can we rename the topic 'The Prophecy'... that way when a game is announced someone gets to be the first to yell "THE PROPHECY HAS BEEN FULFILLED!"

 

Well, I met a middle ground. And then accidentally killed your post in the process.

 

:'y

I'm really excited for them to announce the next game. The speculation and hype period is always fun for me, even with the Boom games that I eventually just ended up not caring about at all. Really looking forward to getting into that sort of thing again, since I actually have a decent amount of faith in Sonic Team as developers and don't expect them to drop the ball (for me personally, anyway).

 

 

 

 

Also: GG Azoo!!!

 

Also-also pls no Dimps version. Have them make a game in the vein of Advance / Rush instead. I don't want handheld versions of console games either way, but yeah.

Im still going by a theory that I made before the site went down. In addition to the next main series Sonic game the next Olympic games will be revealed and they'll also unveil a new Amiibo line(since they'll selling like hotcakes) with Sonic characters.

Please no more!

I can't wait for the inevitable Dimps version!

We can only hope they bloody don't because I'm getting sick and tired of these watered down mediocre Dimps ports! >< WHERE'S MY SONIC RUSH 3D?!

Ahem anyway, whatever Sonic Team is developing better be fecking brilliant because my interest in Sonic has been waning since Generations. Give me something epic like Unleashed, not underwhelming like SLW. Bring on dat April season and don't disappoint me!

PLEASE DONT KILL ME

Anyway....

 

For those who said that the Jazwares sign was fake/Sega made it up... Basically, Jazwares don't make Sonic toys anymore, so why would they advertise Boom toys when they're not making them.

 

Also the artwork on the sign matches up with official documentation for how Sonic packaging should be, which is why a lot of recent stuff has that 'collectors edition.' Jono D and his partner have the design documents for both modern and classic Sonic which are evidence of this.

 

 

P.S. I have made an edit to the edit that was made in my post to reflect the nature of what took place.

 

We're off to an amazing start guys. <3

 

And that is why Sonic games must never go on a break... look at all the fun we're having!

To be honest, Dimps was fine when they were handling their own games. It's only when Sonic Team decided to force them at gunpoint to make hand-me-down ports that problems started to arise.

 

Just let them make good original handheld games again it's not that hard

Well count me in too as someone who is interested in what Sonic Team has been doing. Even if I don't think will see a major game this year, I would like something to take the bad taste on my mouth left by Boom.

 

Man I want a reason to be excited as a sonic fan again. I miss the time when I was pleasantly surprised by any sonic news, now I feel like the recent outings just have been lowering my expectations each year.

Sonic Rush Adventure selling like ass might have something to do with that.

 

 

 

 

So yea...new game....woot. I dunno guys, I can't get hype when I have no faith Sonic Team have learned anything and won't just continue down the same boring path as the last thre games.
