Sega was reportedly set to announce a new Sonic the Hedgehog game for current and next-gen consoles in mid-February. Now comes word that the new installment will be called Sonic Adventure 3.
Please be true!
As long as it doesn't enter the "new Sonic game" cycle, this is probably the best they could announce!
I think the best that they could announce is Sonic Generations 2, since the original is hands-down the best Sonic game in... well, a ridiculously long time, that's for sure. I guess Sonic Adventure 3 isn't so bad though?
@Jim Sonic colors begs to differ
Mother of god, I'm now preparing to play with my chao buddies for the next 400 hours. I want ONLINE CHAO RACES! *genuine excitement*
Sonic Generations 2
okay dude, the Sonic cycle is irrelevant, because every game Sega has put out with the blue blur since Sonic 4 has been absolute gold. Just look at his most recent game, Sonic and Allstars Racing Transformed. It's way better than Mario Kart.
If it is Sonic Adventure 3... I really hope they just focus on Sonic like the original. SA2 was crap mainly because flying around looking for Gems as Knuckles, riding around as a robot and pissing about as a pink chick with a hammer was all crap.
I hope it's true aswell, there's so much they could add onto especially this gen (or next) I hope they improve the Chao garden, that was amazing.
That was my main reason for playing Adventure 2. Was a chao addict. lol This is good news though, hoping for the best!
please please sega make it our comeback to the usual fantastic sonic games sonic shall return the king if sega makes it right goooooo sooooooooonic
Dear god. If this is real.. i'll actually cry.
Oh wow I really hope this is true. I really like sonic adventure 2, I'd be absolutely stoked for a third
Day one buy if this pans out. I'm not even embarrassed
Same here. Upon reading this news, I started listening to some Crush 40. I miss you, Sonic Adventure.
I suggest you listen to Asteroid Coaster and Terminal Velocity from Sonic Colors, it has "Sonic Adventure" written all over those 2 stages.
Who cares what it's titled? SEGA is probably gonna introduce some bizarre gameplay no one wants (again), and being a sequel to a good game won't change that. Like how not many people like Super Mario Bros. 2 because of the whole "throw vegetables" thing (I don't like it either, but for a different reason). If it had been called a spin-off instead of a sequel it probably would have gotten only a little bit better reception.
Dude, Super Mario Bros. 2 was one of the best selling games for the NES, and was pretty well received by the gaming public at the time. Nobody knew that SMB2 wasn't even a Mario game initially. All of that came to the surface many years later, thanks to the internet. And suddenly, people in the internet started talking about Mario Bros 2 like it was a bad game or something. Seriously, have you really played it? If you did, you would know that it's a superb platforming game, with great gameplay mechanics, great level design and a good difficulty. Whatever, the fact remains that Mario Bros 2 had a pretty good reception, and its sales figures reflect on that.
I've played the SNES version. And I can't figure out how to pick up stuff.
@Kirby U, It's been a long time, but I think you jump on top of objects and then press a button.
@kirby i think to pik up stuff in the snes version like koopa shells u hav 2 hold the run button and run onto the shell and it picks up the shell and to throw it u let go of the run button
the hell are you talking about? Sega has finally been listening to Sonic fans for years now, and the powerups that were in Colors were so much fun to use. Hell, Sonic Generations had only 2 playable characters and they were BOTH Sonic. It's what fans have been asking for, and we're getting it. Sonic Generations and Colors did away with the cheesy convoluted stories and actually got GOOD voice actors on board (the guy who voiced Chris Redfield in RE 5 now voices Sonic), the level design and gameplay is finally up to par with the iconic character, the music is phenomenal, and the production values were through the roof. Sonic has been back to his former glory for a few years now, and the bad reviews Generations and Colors received were biased and unfair, because those games are actually quite amazing and so well put together. The reviews were from people who obviously suck at the game and therefore gave it bad reviews. It's equivalent to me not liking an amazing game like Street Fighter because I can't pull off a Shoryuken, or me not liking Halo 4 because I keep getting killed in Slayer matches. And I'm not one of those mindless Sonic fanboys who also like even Sonic's shitty games like Sonic 06, Heroes, Rivals, Sonic R, or the Knuckles and Tails levels of Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 by the way.
I've basically given up on new Sonic games being any good... but I'm too big of a sonic fanboy to not get it. Darn you SEGA!
So I take it you've never played Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations? I don't care what the game is called, just as long as it's awesome like those last two games.
Sonic Colors Wii had an early level that was so hard. it was unplayable. Colors DS was nothing special. And Generations, all three versions was just an epic fail. The 3DS version had barley any 3D platforming and the classic characters look nothing like what people are familiar with. Picture Bit Sonic, now picture Classic Sonic in Generations. NO MATCH!
I never got why people liked Generations. The classic Sonic stages were good but the modern ones felt like all I had to do was push up and find myself at the end of a level in a minute or two.
Oh sweet Jesus! day one. no embarrassment here either.
I wonder if adventure fields will be back like in the first game? Either way im excited!
What like you mean the hub towns like Station Square? god I hope not. Those were terrible.
Hopefully this will be like Sonic Generations, only with a better story and have multiplayer like SA2:B. I can't wait!
This! Or I wouldn't mind for it to be more like adventure 2's gameplay style. Just add local multiplayer like adventure 2 (with an online option ofc), chao garden, and a good story and I'll be worthy of being adventure 2's sequel.
Generations is the greatest Sonic game ever made. Such a well put together love letter to classic Sega fanboys like myself.
Want! Hopefully Shadow is in it.
without being a stereotype. Seriously Sega you thought we wouldn't notice a dark-skined hedgehog in Jordans who shoots guns and steals cars? lol Shadow is still a G though.
PLEASE GOD PLEASE PLEASE PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEE
It won't matter what it's called if it plays the older Sonic games they've released.
ahem! may i say: YES, PLEASE. also: Sega, Please. do not fuck this one up. that's all.
Personally, SEGA doesn't deserve to make Sonic Adventure 3. The Sonic Adventure series was and will remain the best 3D Sonic series of all time. Sonic Generations was good but it had to rely on nostalgia and old designs for it to be awesome. I don't think SEGA is capable of creating a new Sonic game worthy enough to be called Sonic Adventure 3.
cut that bull out. Only bad 3d Sonic games where Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic 06, Sonic and the Secret of the rings, and Sonic Unleashed. Everything else has been pretty solid.
Pretty sure Sonic Color's didnt rely on nostolgia..why does that game keep going under peoples radars.
i hope the game play is like the first two and not this new bs with him boosting and going 2d to 3d. i want it to feel like a more polished SA2 with more chao i love those things
YEEEEEEESSSS!!! I maybe nearly 22 but I don't care I,m definitely getting this if it's true, I loved Sonic Adventure 2 when I was a kid, so excited. :)
PLZ Let this be good. AND BRING BACK CHAO garden WITH MORE CONTENT/features.
will it be fixed with side scrolling goodness similar to generations and the scrolling in unleashed?
Listen i'm not a platform gamer, I don't particularly enjoy sonic however I played sonic adventure on the gamecube and it was a very good game! If released on any of the sony consoles I may look into buying it
Cmon release on PS Vita, would be perfect for the PS3 and Wii U. Use the PS Vita or the gamepad to raise your chao's. Or in the PS Vita's case just put the game on the PS Vita..
That would be sweet.
I have waited forever for a sequel to SA2. I hope this is true
I hope you realize Sonic Heroes (I liked this one) and Shadow the Hedgehog (while it was bad) were direct sequels to SA2. There's nothing spin off about them if that's what you're implying based of the "sequel" in your comment.
you are correct, and I loved those, but I wanted a Sonic Adventure 3 that had the same gameplay, not the teams, and guns.
I hope they do something else with Rouge and Knuckles in this one. I hated those search for the emerald missions with a passion. The levels had some of the best songs in the game but that didn't help the situation much.
Hopefully they'll add new and interesting characters & villains to plot just like the last two Adventure games did. I hope it is the next game in the Adventure series, even though its been over 10 years since Sonic Adventure 2 was first released (Man that makes me feel old), I have a good feeling that Sega can pull it off.
I hope so.
Please make it like Sonic Adventure 2 with Shadow as a main character (with his original voice actor) along with Sonic everyone else doesn't matter to me.
If this is true this will be great news, loved the sonic adventure games, have no idea why 3 didn't come sooner
to quote a friend of mine. I'm waiiiiitiiiiinggg
I could quite frankly, not give a damn if it's SA3. A new Sonic kick ass Sonic game is a new kick ass Sonic game. I was fine with Generations since it was a celebration of 20 years, nostalgia is not what sold me on that game. It was good and fun level design (bar Green Hill and Planet Wisp though I still like Planet Wisp). Whatever comes, as long as it's awesome, it's awesome.
Well, from my knowledge of Sega and their release names, there's probably going to be a release name from a teaser trailer for the new Sonic game. I am an extremely huge fan of Sonic. I have been one since I was 6 years old and I am nearing 21 this year. I am very sure that Sega's aware fans will want a title like "Sonic Adventure 3", I myself would like to see something given from Sega that all fans have wanted for a while now. "Sonic Generations 2" doesn't seem like a very exciting name to me and I have a strong intuitive sense that the Sega game developers are very aware of that. We should keep our thoughts optimistic and have faith in the game developers, because they do put an immense amount of hard work, time, emotion, energy and effort into what they do for the company and the fan base.
