Last year Bioware revealed they had formed a handheld development group, at the time the company revealed their first title would be a Nintendo DS game, well it's been revealed today that game is an RPG featuring Sonic and friends.
I think it's time I invest in a nintendo DS
Wow Bioware and Sonic to make an RPG! Hopefully this will be like when Squaresoft and Nintendo made Super Mario RPG. As well this is coming to the DS is icing on the cake.
bring it to other systems... i dont care what the graphics look like
Bioware made me buy a 360 and now they are going to make me buy a DS
A lot of people don't realize. The cheaper Console is still the Cheapest to develop for.
Nintendo's "SDK" are about $1200 or so, so like every programmer can have their own kit, unlike the $15K MS and $30K Sony kits. One of my friends, a lead Animator, was telling me this, that a lot of developers will start jumping over to the wii because of all these factors. Then again, he said Nintendo is "ANAL" about quality and can be frustrating to get things done how they want it.
We know Bioware makes great RPG's with good stories, and they will be raking in the Money towards the end of the year when their massive games hit on the 360. You would be a fool not to jump on a product such as the wii. Since I'm an owner, and I welcome this new IP. Hopefully it's good, then again would you doubt SEGA and BIOWARE?
When do we get to see another Mario RPG?
I for one wishes he would just die already. He was lame in the 90's and he's still lame today, plus his games suck.
SONIC desparately needs a good game.
The last few Japanese ports have been TERRIBLE.
Bioware is already a proven master of the RPG.
I think an RPG set in the SONIC universe, with the standard SONIC perspective and controls would be awesome.
I just hope they don't eliminate the faced pace running sequences in favor of a Zelda-like stroll across the world.
Wow. Just wow. Great news. Hell, even better than great.
Whatever happened to the psp lol! This is good news for the ds but I don't see it as being a smart move to jump on the Wii bandwagon because developers want to make money and the only console that really seems to be pushing games is 360!
This game is coming to the DS everyone. So this has nothing to do with the Wii or 360. Yes games sell well on the 360 but when compaired to the volume of games the DS sells it is a bit different.
Once again this is a DS title and will be pretty uber considering who is making it.
I can't imagine the outcome.
I think they need to stop sending Sonic to other genres (Racing and others), stop making crappy games AND get to make a TRUE platformer Sonic. Not Sonic The Hedgehog for 360/PS3, Not Sonic Rivals, Not Sonic RPG, Not Sonic Rush (Although that one wa kool) or something. A full Sonic 4. No, non of other Sonic titles had numbers. It should be a true sequel, just like GTA IV.
I thought sonic was laid to rest. Didn't sega say they weren't gonna bother sonic anymore? Oh well. this better be good 'cause sonic needs it
Personally, I think Sega should let Sonic rest.
