[FAIL] I'm hoping that it won't.
Megaton  +   1935d ago
If it's a return to its 2D roots, count me in. If it's the next installation of 3D Sonic fail, I'm out.

AWESOME! I hope it is similar to what New Super Mario Bros. Wii did by going back to their roots. Side scrolling, nostalgic, levels and characters recognizable from past Sonic games. We will have to wait and see.
Gue1  +   1935d ago
I hope the game turns out good, we need more games that don't require a gun to be fun!
zeeshan  +   1935d ago
Please please please please SEGA pleaseee let it 2D this time! Sonic in 3D is like lame. I want the good ol' Sonic in 2D!! And I am seriously gona punch someone at SEGA if they give Tales his own game 'cuz this picture looks like a silhouette of Tales!!!!!

Thde sad fact is unless it's a re-release of Sonic 1 most people will be dissapointed.
SoapShoes  +   1936d ago
It's sonic...
No matter what Sega does, people will be disappointed. 2D game, disappointed because it's just the same old same old from the Genesis with new graphics. 3D, disappointed because it's not 2D. Damned if they do, damned if they don't.

Also Sonic 1 was great, but 2 and 3&Knuckles were better. Pretty much everyone thinks so. There were no complaints back in the day that the series was getting worse, everyone loved the new improvements to the games.
mjolliffe  +   1936d ago
Well I'm still hoping it's a new, clean sheet for the whole franchise!
xskipperx82  +   1935d ago
this is a completly NEW single player experience. NOT a remake. Already confirmed by Sega on one of their blogs
kaveti6616  +   1935d ago
The sad fact is MRV321 refers to himself as "most people."
Logiistics  +   1936d ago
Cannot wait....


Come on SEGA make it good!
Valay  +   1936d ago
Right now I just want to know if it's coming to Wii.
saint_john_paul_ii  +   1936d ago
Im pretty sure it is. Its Sonic. it has a wide appeal for all platforms.

My question is what will they do in the coming months to prepare people for it.
SoapShoes  +   1936d ago
I wouldn't be too sure...
Aside from Unleashed, the main games of the series have been on PS3/360. Look at '06 and the other two for Wii were spinoffs. I wouldn't be too sure about that unless this is another "across all platforms" game.
SpoonyRedMage  +   1936d ago
Yer but Unleashed sold more on the Wii than it did on PS3 and 360 combined. Sega would have to be morons not to put it on the Wii.

Oh wait, Sega ARE morons. It's probably not coming to the Wii.:P
oobob  +   1935d ago
Haha, this company did kill eternal champions because they thought it hurt the appeal of Virtua Figher in the US. It made shenmue. They hurt about 3 generations of platforms by continually announcing upcoming hardware years before release and preventing everyone from buying the current system and continually adding attachments that by definition couldn't have sold more than the original system. Twice. While everyone knew the saturn was upcoming. I love sega like a stupid little cousin that can't help but make me angry at how ignorant he is.

Have you heard of segaga? You probably have but I want to find an english translated rom of that game (if it exists). You work for sega. When you battle other employees you trade insults and witty replies. Some of the enemies are alcoholic sega employees. If you lose you waste a month of development time.

Also, thanks for recommending rabbids go home, the game is hysterical, fun, and the gf loves it.

And eternal champions!

Have they made any shining force games recently?
ChickeyCantor  +   1936d ago
For some reason the title reminds me of the Mario game on CDI...with the hotels.

I also have the feeling it will end up like a pinball game =/.
scruffy_bear  +   1936d ago
2D Sonic game thats what I want
Arnon  +   1936d ago
Seriously. Give us Sonic The Hedgehog 4. Keep just Sonic, Tails and Knuckles in it. Give us a 3D game on a 2D plane in a fashionable HD resolution, and I'm set to buy.
ChickeyCantor  +   1935d ago
No if its going to be 2D they should use Sprites.
Unless they use shaders that makes everything flat.

2.5D games just dont capture the old school feel.
Arnon  +   1935d ago
I completely agree with that, and that's my only gripe with NSMBW. The characters don't feel right when using them.
maniacmayhem  +   1936d ago
I have the inside scoop...
Samba De Amigo HD!
-MD-  +   1936d ago
I haven't played a sonic game in years... it was on the gamecube I'm pretty sure, I've been turned off completely from Sega throwing all these lame gimmicks into the franchise hopefully this one won't suck.
Sangria  +   1935d ago
With this announcement, Sega hold the faith of thousands of fans. It can be either a real comeback of the Sonic awesomeness, either another nail to the blue hedgehog's coffin.
sleepyazn  +   1935d ago
Could Be An Awesome Game!
If it didn't include any of Sonic's "friends".
-MD-  +   1935d ago
I like Tails though.
oobob  +   1935d ago
Whether I like them or not tails and knuckles aren't bad. It's the whole posse I can't take.
ButterToast  +   1935d ago
they can include tails and knuckles so long as they play mostly like sonic, like in sonic 2, 3, and Sonic and Knuckles
Zeal0t  +   1935d ago
Something like this would be sweet

Apocalypse Shadow  +   1935d ago
that's what i'm hoping for too.
i've kept that picture on my ps3 and pc and hoped for the best since seeing it.

but the guy above hit the nail on the head.after this,a real streets of rage 4.if you got fans making a fanmade SOR for pc(even the remix music is h#lla good),then they need to top it.

sega needs to keep giving fans what they want.they have been sitting on awsome franchises for years saying "we have no plans this time."

well,it's **TIME**

no more PR bullsh!t.get cracking sega.
Zeal0t  +   1935d ago
I've kept this pic on my pc too, always hoped for a Sonic like this...
I totally agree with you about your point regarding the franchises which Sega needs to revive/refresh or whatever just give the fans what they want.
I bet Sega would gain loads of respect from the their fans and of course loads of money too
MajestieBeast  +   1935d ago
lets just hope its good.
tunaks1  +   1935d ago
Even if it is 2D i have a feeling SEGA will still screw this up :(
gumgum99  +   1935d ago
how so?
tunaks1  +   1935d ago
by adding warehog transformations,

trust me just because its in 2D doesn't mean it will automatically be good.
The day time levels were actually fun in Unleashed (at least on the Wii) yet they injected the terrible Warehog levels, so they'll find a way.

But if it is good I will support it.
Redempteur  +   1935d ago
i really don't want transformations (unless super sonic )..

If they can confirm taht it's not happening i'll be happy as long as it's 2D , HD with sonic only .. ( my criteria for win )
Demon5500  +   1935d ago
Does it look realistic, or does it look cartoon like with out any enhanced features?

I will go with very realistic but 2D? and fast SEGA!!!!
gumgum99  +   1935d ago
This game is gonna rock, and no website or blog is gonna sway me otherwise.

sadly, it will be 3AM where I live when this is announced. After this, perhaps they can apply this approach to their 3D games, and all will be right in the gaming world. ^_^
englandsbest316  +   1935d ago
Sonic 2D.
I can't see them messing this one up.

Sonic's 2D platforming games have pretty much all been exceptional throughout the years.

Sega Megadrive/Genesis games........ Sonic 1,2,3 & Knuckles
Mega CD...... Sonic CD
Gameboy advance...... Sonic advance 1,2 & 3
Nintendo DS...... Sonic Rush

Even his Master System games were mostly great.

If Sega is returning to the old but awesome sonic games, it will be like a rebirth of the company former glory! don't dissapoint us on this Sega!!!!!
ahall88nhl  +   1935d ago
Sonic the Hedgehog 4
pcz  +   1935d ago
Nothing special
Just a downloadable game.

To add insult to injury, its episodic.
