I'm amazed at the reactions here. I thought everyone would be gushing about them FINALLY turning back to a serious tone for the first time in 8 years. Instead, people are complaining that this is Sonic Generations 2. Did everyone forget that Iizuka actually paused, right before the trailer, to clarify that this would not be a sequel? 

people are complaining classic sonic showed up.

They have it, they have a lot of it. They didn't want that in the main game.

My initial thoughts.

Not excited... but interested. 

Basically, it felt like Sonic 06, it was pretty serious and I didn't like it... then classic Sonic showed up and I thought 'it can't be that serious, he looks so happy.'

My thoughts exactly. If ONLY Classic Sonic wasn't smiling, it could've saved that scene. It felt REALLY out of place.

Look at it this way 

Classic Sonic has got a 2D revival 

Boom Sonic is still surviving with his games and TV show 

And Modern Sonic has to share because whatever formula Sega is using for his gameplay it's obviously not enough to stand on its own because Classic Sonic is his crutch again. 

It's just that this us NOT what I wanted to see out of a Modem Sonic in the new  console Gen

As much as I care about Modern Sonic, at the end of the day I really just want a fun game out of Sonic. If Generations 2 makes for a fun game, then Scratch could be the hero and Silver his sidekick and I'd still play it. Sonic is Sonic, classic or no; if there's more or less boost here but it's still fun, I'm hard-pressed to complain.

Silly Mike, this is the Sonic fanbase! We complain about everything.

I mean, he says that, yet here's classic Sonic along with modern Sonic again because...?

For all we know, this could be Gens 2 in all but name.

In the interest of fairness, it's hard to be taken seriously when you say "it's not a sequel" and then advertise the main gimmick of the first game as a prominent aspect of the second.

He's directing the game. I think we can take him seriously.

Firstly, the serious tone is not something everyone wants, partly because Sonic Team has a distinguished history of fucking that up.

Secondly, I'll believe Iizuka when when I see actual gameplay rather than pre-rendered CGI, thank you.

So urm... anyone think Boom Sonic is gonna turn up?

Doubt it. Classic and Modern Sonic have always been the same universe and series, whilst Boom is something on the side. But if he did show, that would make the whole thing worse and more gimmicky.

Iizuka's said a lot of stuff that turned out to be not quite true. I think you can forgive people for not taking him at his word.

Okay I really need an explanation of how all the classic Sonic love being shown in the next two games is oh so satanic

because he has his own game and feels out of place and forced in modern sonic games now

I don't want him.

I don't like classic sonic that much.

And he's the only other playable character in that game i'll like him less.

Is classic sonic being in the trailer make people think it's gonna be a squeal? I guess when we get more info but we have to work with what we have. As of now I do not see it as a squeal

Firstly, Sonic stories have failed to have any compelling elements since Unleashed, and it's time to get more serious.

Really excited to see more of this.

Only nitpick I have personally is that they implied Modern Sonic will have 2D-3D switching again. I didn't really want that.

But I love everything else. I know why people are bothered by Classic Sonic, and I think it's totally valid.

But at the same time, he's Classic Sonic. He's adorable. That alone makes him a joy to see for me, even if he's got Mania.

I'm not gonna make too many assumptions. Maybe Classic Sonic won't even have 2D gameplay or something?

I need one as to why he's in the game in the game in the first place.
