Sonic Mania (August 15th 2017, Christian Whitehead, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch) - The New Classic

Recommended Posts

It definitely resembles one of Metal Sonic's limbs, but it doesn't seem quite right.  Could all this redesign talk have been on the money?

It does seem a bit odd to be showing this off less than a week before a much bigger reveal event.  But maybe what they'll be revealing tomorrow is itself a kind of teaser for the reveals at SXSW.  So this would be a teaser for a teaser.

....Mecha Sonic's feet are blue with red tips.

Down for a redesign though. Maybe Metal Sonic plays a big role in 2017 as Eggman's enforcer in that doomed future.

While that definitely looks like Metal's leg to me, I'm puzzled be the fact that it doesn't seem to match his leg design as we've known it.

Notice that his lower leg is completely is fitted into that blue outer casing. The top half doesn't seem to be much of a better match either apart from sharing the silver colour. Then there's the whole thing about the seemingly blue foot to top it off.

If tomorrow's video is tied to this somehow, I'm honestly not sure what it's going to be. I can't see them using up any big reveals related to our two upcoming games  before next week's panel but the fact they're teasing and hyping something for tomorrow means it's got to have at least a little significance in some way.

Maybe they are introducing a new Metal sonic?

I mean, other than the first game, there was always a new Metal-Based sonic nemesis in each game (Silver Sonic (Sonic 2) Metal Sonic (Sonic CD) Mecha Sonic (Sonic 3)).

We don't really know much about the story/antagonist of Mania, maybe its a new enemy??

 

Additionally, did anyone realize that the design look somewhat like the "Egg-robo" (main enemy to Knuckles in the S3&K story, common enemy in Sky Sanctuary) has a similar leg design. The only difference is that its blue. Which would help make it feel unique to the other Egg-Robos which are easy one-hit kill enemies.

While I could end up wrong, but I extremely doubt they'd redesign Metal Sonic himself... Outside of a temporary 1 game redesign anyways. Sonic Mania is trying to bring the series classic style back for everything, not redesign anybody that already has canon classic designs.

If that pic is indeed Metal... instead of a redesign it is possible the preview pic is done little wrong just to throw us off, because we'd know right of the bat who it was if they didn't. But another idea what it could be is just other new robots in Mania that have similar leg to Metal... Anybody remember that painting in that cowboy zone?

Looks based after Eggrobo or the Eggman mecha from the Sonic OVA. Maybe Mania will make new bots based after ideas from random bots/mechs from old Sonic media.

This lines up VERY well with the Egg-Robo design from S3&K.

I honestly think that the story of Sonic Mania will include whomever that is inside that "Strange starring picture" from Mirage Saloon, which looks like a "King Egg-Robo".

The "Leg" in todays post looks like an egg robo leg so...

 

What if tomorrow they reveal the main antagonist of Sonic Mania, a fancy king-like Egg Robo?

Welp

it's PROBABLY Metal Sonic...

Problem is that the pieces don't line up.

In the HD image (sonic twitter), its a blue surface with a round piece, followed by more blue surface. Then, attached to the round silver metal part, is a THICK metal piece, followed by a THINNER metal piece, then a round joint section.

In the Metal Sonic image, its a blue surface with a FLAT silver piece, more blue surface. Then, its a THIN piece of metal followed by a THICK piece of metal followed by another THIN piece of metal followed by ANOTHER THICK piece of metal, then the rest is inside his body.

It's a different pattern of mechanical parts.

 

Either way, as the final post on page 152 of this forum, I showed how the Sonic Facebook page confirmed it is a Leg, not an arm.

Also the problem with that comparison is that pic uses Modern Metal Sonic as a comparison instead of Classic Metal Sonic which has a different more simple arm design.

Furthermore lets not forget the hint the sonic twitter gave us about leg day.

So they did just accidentally confirm that it is really a Leg of something.

Really can't think of what else other than metal sonic

I'm more than anything expecting it to be some kind of print or shirt of Metal Sonic with a stylized pallet (thus the blue feet), but I'll be pleasantly surprised if it's game related. PLACE YOUR BETS!

My guess is that these guys teamed up and combined into one robot after Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and that leg/arm is a combination of the two.

Or instead of Mecha it's Metal Sonic. I just saw the picture above, looks like Metal Sonic's arm upside down for sure.

What if it's simply the demo being available? The leg is something for us to chew on until we get the full cluck with the final release date, to be announced at the show?

Smart thinking! I hope we get a demo, badly.

By looking at full Metal Sonic models, it's clear that is his thigh, with the round part at the top being the hip and the top of the blue leg pad visible at the bottom. The only "off" thing is that the pad maybe should be more pointy.

PLEASE this be a confirmation of Metal Sonic in BOTH Mania and 2017!!!!! :rolleyes:

The thought of that happening made my heart skip a beat. I've had thoughts of Christian coming out and saying the game comes out the following week or a bit later, wouldn't that be something?

The video got delayed to tomorrow, that HAS to be related, doesn't it?

What video? :0

So it could either be another trailer or teaser or, most likely, a silly little video that will allow us to take a close gander at... an addition of vague details which all collectively make up a major truth...

Bingo! Yeah's it's gotta be. We're not getting any news on P17 & Mania until at least the 16th. Might be a behind-the-scenes video or something, but definitely no new game info.

Remember guys, Aaron lurks this forum (and very occasionally posts). He probably noticed the recent discussion about Metal & Mecha Sonic in this topic and decided to have a little fun, getting the fanbase into a frenzy over nothing.......again XD

I doubt Aaron is seeing this, he's probably still prepping up for the SXSW panel or just chilling at Texas or something idk

He probably read your post on his phone right now and chuckled like Knuckles.
