Sonic 2020 Initiative Discussion

Recommended Posts

It seems they are changing the Japan monthly streams from on the 20th day of every month to 20:00 JST (8pm) every month. Allows them to be a bit more flexible with the days I guess.

The stream for this month will be on April 22nd at 8pm JST (7am EST).
This month's stream will have Series Sound Director Tomoya Ohtani as a special guest. They will be discussing Sonic music.
(Twitter noted this month was previously recorded video due to the virus situation instead of live like usual)

Stream link in spoiler below.

Btw, I just noticed on Sonic Channel they added the icons for Sonic2020 with various characters:

Pretty cool uh? Surprised they didn't add Zavok or Zazz, considering their love for them, plus is that the Master Emerald? Or a regular emerald?

Don't say that. They may take your surprise for disappointment.

Interesting. The 20th Anniversary icons had individual characters each but some of them have been bundled together for this one.

Apart of me finds it half adorable and half disappointing that the Chaotix are all in one ring together. At the very least they haven't forgotten that they're supposed to be a team, even with how often Vector is superglued to other teams or is just plain by himself.
