What if Square Enix made a Sonic RPG?

Recommended Posts

We've already seen BioWare take a crack at a Sonic RPG, (to not so great results) what if Sega hired the creators of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest to make another RPG starring the Blue Blur?

Given Sonic's emphasis on speed, I think a Sonic RPG by SE should have a fast-paced real time battle system akin to that of Kingdom Hearts. Not to mention the composer should be someone who has done the music for some of Square's most famous games. (I'd go with Yasunori Mitsuda of Chrono Trigger fame)

I'm trying to think of a Sonic RPG where Sonic can run around and defeat enemies in a fast pace style...

and I keep picturing Sonic Heroes...

Is it really bad for a traditional turn based Sonic RPG or TCG to exist?

If it was turn based it’d need to be the pace of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic I and II.

If it was more of a Chaotix spin-off, then there'd be less pressure to make a speed based game. The focus would be on exploration. The only issue would be that the script would have to be primarily comedy based, and that's not exactly easy to do.

I’d love Shadow the Hedgehog joning Chaotix, he afterall harnesses the power of Chaos. That way you could make Shadow a primary protagonist instead of Somic, with Knuckles as the sidekick, Espio, Vector, and Charmie. 

SEGA are you listening? :)

I would love to see what Square Enix could do with a Sonic RPG.  I can see them trying to give Sonic a better story than from what we've been seeing in the past few years.  Also, I wonder if the tone of the RPG games would be much darker than the franchise itself since that was the case with the Paper Mario series.

I have no idea how Chronicles did it (kind of afraid to check) but when I hear "Sonic RPG" I imagine the non-battle/field section looking like Paper Mario w/ each character having unique abilites to help progress forward, and the battle section looking like Mario & Luigi w/ characters able to combine moves for a unique effect.

That’s be easier to make. Instead of a hammer, Sonic could spin dash.

That's certainly possible. Especially if the writers of Octopath Traveler are writing the story.

I always pictured KH2 if going 3D, or Tales of series if 2D. It's fast paced and addicting enough and you can open the menu at anytime in battle for various options

 

Then again, it's made by Namco, so it probably won't get localized lol

 

I don't even mind another shot at turn based either. I did like some elements of Chronicles, just a shame it falls apart on many of the most basic departments. 

 

Since we talking Square though, The World Ends With You is another great but niche action rpg. Various movement options depending on the style of attack and pins you have equipped.

To answer the question, it would be amazing.

That is to say: amazing relative to whatever is going on with Sonic at this present moment in time. I'd say yes to a Sonic themed RTS if it meant we got something to end the drought.

A VISUAL NOVEL would satisfy at this point (unless it’s too... metahumorous), compared to Team Sonic Racing.

Maybe PS1 era Square and not "lost ¥6.5 Billion thanks to Avengers" Square

Except that Square didn't actually make the Avengers game themselves.
