Akinori Nishiyama, General Manager of the Sonic Team has provided comments on the chances of a class Sonic game similar to Mega Man 9.
i love that idea. how about a mario too!
to mario, they just need this idea because sonic hasnt been doing so good in 3d just like megaman, but mario on the other hand has been doing good in 3d so they dont need to make one, and they kinda are but its just more advanced then what your thinking its called new super mario bros. for DS and they migh make a second one.
Yea this would be a great idea for a Sonic game because Sonic has never been as good as the 2D games, so this could bring Sonic back to his former glory. Mario doesn't have that problem lol.
If you're going the New Super Mario route, the Sonic Rush games on DS are also fantastic. In fact, Sonic Rush is my second favourite DS game, after NSMB.
Sonic is by Sega, Mario is by Nintendo. I would LOVE a classic Sonic game!!! Those where the best games!!! I used to love going over to my friends house just 2 play this game. Cause at home i had the SNES and mario.
... me, and many other, have been begging for a new, side-scrolling, 2D, sprite-based new Sonic game for YEARSSSSssssssssss... I'm still surprised how quick developers lost interest in making 2d sprite-based games (fighters, platformers, shooters), when 3d games came around. Just imagine the possibilities with todays HD technologies and power, of making great high-res gorgeously looking 2d platformers and fighters (new King f Fighters looks promising) I not only want a high-res new Sonic game (and one that looks, plays and FEELS like the first 2 Sonic games on the Megadrive, and like Sonic CD), but I also want many other old classics to resurface in HD sprite-based goodness, like Turrican, or Superfrog, or Alien Breed, or a new Lucasarts adventure like Monkey Island, etc etc etc.
^ some games are just better in 2d. Sonic is one. Mega man is better too. I really want a super mario world 3 tho. Just like it was on the snes. New super mario bros should not have looked as 3d as it did in a 2d game (meaning all the characters were in 3d...looked weird)
A new 2D Sonic would be the best decision SEGA has made in years.
I agree make a 2d game with SUPER 1080P GRAPHICS. Consider it bought once made. Also Sonic was always my favorite mascot and its a shame that his 3d games were trash (desided sonic adventures 1 on the dreamcast) Sonic however did rock hard in Super Smash Brothers Melee.
of course a sonic game can work on 3d. is the lack of passion and hability of sega devs that make the games flop... anyway, as a fan of the series, i would love a 2d game with a lot of speed...
But, where are the nine unannouced game from Sony, 1 from Irem and one from Konami?? Irem is Spelunker Maybe Dress is one of them? should be 8 more?
I would love a sonic but like bionic commando rearmed.. everything in 3D with pretty graphics.. OR the same as in megaman but with better graphics like Super Street Fighter II HD Remix
I'd rather them go the SSF2THD Remix route with a new Sonic game. Sega almost had my money when they showed a video of the new sonic game. Then i saw a werewolf.
werehog... that god forsaken thing is a werehog...
how about a new 2d contra game konami!!!!!! for ps3
played the demo on 360. garbage game, megaboy is. how any n00b can like that trash is beyond me. however, an oldschool sonic game would be great, especially like the new bionic commando rearmed. great stuff.
2D sonic with trophies FTW!!
and please... 3 buttons, and all of them make you jump... and don't even think about implementing nothing new!!!! sega love to implement new things that only make the game flop cough... werehog... cough
They need to make a official HD Sonic side scroller. For those who have seen that Sonic HD thing around the net you know what I'm talking about. It's holds alot of potential and it's just what the fans want.
I agree that a 2d sonic game would be awesome, but 2d is not always better, look at Metroid, eveyone grinned at the idea of it going 3d and look at it now. It all depends on art concept and styling, Sega can't seem to find the formula and they've tried everything even 2.5d let's hope capcom doesn't suffer the same obstacle with the new street fighter game. I think Sonic should be 2.5d cell shades since sonic is a character whith edges all over his body, that would make perfect lighting and depth of fiels effects, the only problem is none of the current consoles can render those types of cell shaded graphics at sonic speeds and high frame-rates even though they're post-render.
I still don't like Metroid in 3D. But I'm maybe an exception.
