Rumor: Sonic Colors May Get HD Port, Mario & Sonic 3 Not Sports Related

SEGAbits "So the long and the short of it is this, last year some random guy turned up on a site full of random people known as ‘4chan’. Calling himself ‘Wentos the Traveling Salesman’ he claimed to be an insider from Sega with a lot of beans to spill.

Like some online Mystic Meg he then dispenses some rather vague predictions and info on upcoming Sonic games. For reasons unknown to me people took stock in what this anonymous tipster had to say. Apparently many of his predictions did come true, albeit pretty vague ones I think anyone could have taken a stab in the dark at." (Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games 3, Nintendo DS, PS3, Sonic Colors, Wii, Xbox 360)

Gotcha
Though thought the rules where only the ones it is about.

How about no.
Sonic games most of the time get ignored on the PS3 or 360 for the most part as it is and suffer from ridiculous frame rate issues. This could be completely different but I think it would just be safer for colors to be focusing on 1 console and then the DS version being all Sonic rush style.

I agree
Framerate issues. But they had framerate issues in the past games (see wii port of Unleashed) and now they got it right. Looks great.

Unleashed had too good graphics and they tried to run it too fast. They should have slowed him down, took the werehog off and it would have been great.

It's too bad too. Games that aren't in a more realistic style, just don't perform as well with the non Nintendo crowd.

"The technology and design plan is all set up to do the port on Sonic Team’s end,” he said. “Of course, they need strong sales to justify releasing it on the other two platforms (with enhancements, more money spent, etc) in the first place, so it’s all up to you guys.”

YES! Sonic Colors actually looks really good for a sonic title, looks like Sonic Unleashed, but without the stupid werehog parts. PORT IT OVER TO MOVE! Hopefully the reviews will be good, and the target demographic on Wii will boost sales enough for a port!

not a sports game ? Well finally ..will they have the ballzs to do a platforming game ?

I honestly hope not...

The Mario and Sonic games are developed, if I'm not mistaken, by Sega. No offense to Sega, but they appear to only just be getting the hang of how to put their own mascot into a game.

If it's not a sports game, I'd expect something like Mario and Sonic Party or something.

Miyamoto will not let mario have a bad platformer. PERIOD!
