Sonic Boom has been announced as a third-party exclusive for Nintendo, along with a new animated TV series, and plenty of licensed toys. Head this way for screens and artwork.
Hopefully it's good
Wow Knuckles. Looks like someone skipped leg day at the gym.
He's just going through puberty, you know the body grows in mysterious was during that time.
That weight stress on those weak legs... Makes me wonder how he can run fast.
I can't get over Hipster Sonic and Yo Yo Dude Knuckles. SEGA, how far you've fallen. At least the deviantart people will have to re-draw everything. Wait...not sure if that's good. :/
As a long time Sonic fan, I like the new designs. plus Sega already confirmed Sonic Boon is not replacing the main series of games.
this screenshot looks really good http://www.gamereactor.eu/m...
I hope they bring Shadow into the new series. He doesn't get any love from Sega anymore. On another note, Sonic and Knuckles look weird.
AMY doesnt belong to this group its SONIC TAILS and KNUCKLES AMY should be out and do... well dunno other stuff . why because we know what will amy do she is already annoying let alone being a part of the same team that sonic is in . anyways by 2015 when sonic hits the PS4 everything should be sorted out by that date
They probably just want that FOURTH player and a female character.
it makes sense what you said . at least am not affected by it until 2015 when the PS4 or any other sony console gets a SONIC GAME
The 2015 rumor was incorrect. The first game that's based on this new series is a Nintendo exclusive.
this is the final game in the deal sonic is free after that so it doesnt need a rocket scientist to figure that sonic will go to other consoles after this game is out
"this is the final game in the deal sonic is free after that so it doesnt need a rocket scientist to figure that sonic will go to other consoles after this game is out" Of course. But SEGA already confirmed the 2015 leak was fake. Edit: To the disagree: http://www.escapistmagazine... From the article linked above. "Update: It looks like Nuremberg got their facts wrong, Sega has officially come out and denied the existence of a next-gen Sonic title for 2015 on the official Sega forums"
I almost agreed with your post, but then you started saying everything would be fixed when Sonic hits the PS4. That makes it sound like you're just hating on it because it's on the Wii U. I don't listen to people who bash a game due to the system it's on, no matter what other reasons they have to bash it, or how valid those other reasons are. That's too narrow-minded.
well i am not a nintendo fan at all but before i say that i must tell you that i love Sonic to the core and to see what happened to him till this date is really painful . i want sonic to benifit from the PS4 and xbox install base because that would equal more units sold . its good that you agreed on the AMY part because any sane sonic fan would say the same .
@sonic989 Sonic Boom isn't a main game. It a new series exclusive on Nintendo. Just like Advance GBA games, Rush DS games Story Book Wii games. Sonic Colors and Lost World being connected. Lost World sequel will be Nintendo exclusive.
"but before i say that i must tell you that i love Sonic to the core and to see what happened to him till this date is really painful . i want sonic to benifit from the PS4 and xbox install base because that would equal more units sold . " What exactly says the PS4/X1 will make the sonic franchise suddenly so great? What guarantees PS4/X1 will sell more copies? The reason Sega goes a lot with Nintendo is because their Sonic games on the Wii sold enough to turn them a profit. I don't get where you got this delusion from that the PS4/X1 will sell more copies ( which in no way even indicates it's a good sonic game, something you are complaining about)
simple math 3 systems > 1 system . and believe me when i say that 80k or so is a very poor number to stay exclusive thats nintendo deal for you . it will sell more ignoring your fan base isnt the correct thing to do and of course not everyone went to nintendo . i didnt say ps4 will make it better what i meant is that by the time sonic games return to sony consoles that none sense ( redesign ) wont exist anymore at least in the games developed by sonic team do you get it now or should i explain more . i want the sonic design that i like whether the game is good or bad thats not an issue for me just bring him back .
"i didnt say ps4 will make it better what i meant is that by the time sonic games return to sony consoles that none sense ( redesign ) wont exist anymore at least in the games developed by sonic team do you get it now or should i explain more . " No please, say no more. You're making less and less sense. You complain about how the games have been in a dip. Basically saying they aren't on par with the originals. Yet you say Sonic team will go back to their standard design if they develop it for the PS4/x1...even though they have been doing mediocre at best (Sonic generation was the ONLY one that came close to the originals ). You complain their games have been bad over the years but want them to do exactly that? Wut?
The other looks alright, but wtf happen to knuckles?
Who knew sonic was related to simon cowell with a waistline like that.
why the hell it make me think at ratchet and clank lol
all 4 one? very true this sonic game looks like a 4 player coop game
not only all 4 one but the style of the game looklike a ratchet and clank, i dont know, maybe its me.
knuckles is on that TRT lol
What's with Sonic's face?
I have to admit, this game graphically looks a lot better than Sonic Lost World. Maybe this is where most of the development went?
there using cryengine 3 for this game thats why they look so different. http://kotaku.com/meet-the-...
cryengine on the WiiU??? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOO!!! lol
I don't mind the look so much as everyone else. I'm down for them trying to reinvent the characters. I wish they would do a game series based off the Sonic comic books that had Sally and all the other characters. Used to LOVE reading the sonic comics back in the day.
Game looks awesome! If you didn't take the time to watch the trailer because it isn't in english go back and watch it. I will definitely buy this game although i agree that the character models look weird. They should've put Shadow instead of Amy though. Shadow would go much better and hasn't been getting much love from Sega lately. Maybe he will be an unlockable character...one can only hope
http://www.youtube.com/watc... english version if peeps prefer that. enjoy
Even better when i can understand what is being said. Thank you
looks badass. i've skipped all the sonic games since Sonic Rush on DS, but this one looks really good
Holy shit, that looks COOOL! Knuckles looks a bit funky, and that waist on Sonic is a bit off-putting, but good lord does the gameplay look incredible, so who cares what they look like! Does this look a little open-world to anyone else? It looked a little open-world to me in some areas...
If Guile could name a Sonic name.
Why,....these new designs look like deviant art fan characters...what is the point of adding more spines to Sonic, it's NOT hair. -_-
I can live with the new designs if the game is good. Why just Nintendo though?
its part of the 3game exclusive deal this will be the last game in the deal.
Oh yeah! I forgot. Does that include Sochi then?
yeah i believe so but not 100% on that.
I think it does include Sochi, but don't quote me on that. I'd have to do some research to be sure since it was so long ago that the 3 game deal was detailed...
As long as the PS4 game is based on the true characters and not th bomb show
Anybody have ideas on how the coop will work for this game? From the trailer i think it might be online only. Characters were far away from each other to the extent that playing local would be difficult. It also seems that some pathways are only for a certain character. So multiple pathways for one level and players have to assit each other. Anyone else have ideas on how it could work?
on the bits i read said wii u version was coop 2players in campaign but the game will include other 4 player modes but not sure about online.
Knuckles be like, "Gotta go lift"
last i checked, you all hated Sonic anyway, now there'sbpeople claiming When he comes to PS4 it will be better? Whats going on here? Do you hate sonic unless he's on a Sony console? Hell, Colors and Lost Worlds were pretty damn good, and this one looks like the reboot sonic has been needing. I bet if it was on PS4 way more of you would admit it looks pretty good.
Kind off topic, but I hope there are Chao Gardens in this game.
Autism is strong in here...
Sonic / BigRedButton (i.e. ex Naughty Dog Jak&Daxter team) / CryEngine3. Why you no Wii U, sucker?
ratchet and clank?
The gameplay is fluid, but it really isn't what we want. We want good sonic games, like SA2 or Sonic Heroes. You're taking the whole thing and taking a dump on it then shooting yourself in the foot twice. The designs look like someone drew them with their feet, they have bandages on 90% of their bodies. Lookin at their track history from the past 8 years, you constantly give us garbage. You get so much time to make these games but you probably get the sonic team and make them eat pudding cups all day.
so.. after all these year running like hell sonic finally lost his belly. I guess i should do the same now
