While the official Twitter account for Sonic the Hedgehog usually posts great things, their latest post seems to transcend them all.
It could be just an April fools joke or it could be something amazing
little early for April Fools no?
How much different could it be from their more recent games? They've been trying to recreate the success of the first two Adventure games and failing ever since (I enjoyed Colors tho). Will the title change make all the difference?
Apart from a karting game, Sega have always done everything earlier than anyone else.
@ShinMaster The core sonic team has been doing a great job lately. Colours, Generations, even Sonic Unleashed nailed the daytime levels. Other than that, there's Sonic Lost World, which was okay. This new one has been in development a lot longer than any of the others, as well. Sonic has had a lot of bad apples, but I doubt this next game will be one of them.
Sonic 4: Episode 3?
Pretty comitted for an April fools joke. But then the guy running the StH twitter account is nothing if not committed to a joke.
After Sammy bought SEGA, Rnd in SEGA changes to be aligned with the new global parent strategies. SEGA based Rnd on independent Studio frameworks that allowed each studio to be unique. This created Sega Wow, Sega AM2, Hitmaker, Amusement Vision, Smilebit, Sonic Team. Each studio excelled and created some of SEGA's greatest games ever. in 2004 after the take over, they merged them all and creative leads left. In Short, SEGA today is not the SEGA of yesterday. So lets stop pretending they are. It is a different company. "For the better half of the first decade of the holding's existence it has sought the arcade machine sales of Sega, and the pachinko sales of Sammy, as its biggest financial incentive. However a shift happened in the 2010s, leading to the "Group Structure Reform" in 2015. Casinos, resorts and digital games are now the biggest financial incentives. Arcade sales and packaged games from Sega has softened, while further growth in pachinko sales is not anticipated." https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...
those are the only two options, yes. Good job.
It could very well just be the real deal! buckle up folks
They mentioned a big Sonic Project for 2016 back in early 2015 already.
Sonic Adventure has always been in 3D. This looks more like a continuation of the episodic Sonic 4 games.
Give me Sonic Adventure 3!! Plzzz deliver
How about a tease for Sonic Adventure 3 on the NX 👍😁
This would be the first time I buy a Sonic game since Unleashed which was very average. Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 were staples of my childhood and I still enjoy them now. Spent way too much time in the Chao Gardens.
Play Colours and Generations, they are both very good games. Every level is just like the day time stages of Unleashed.
Would be awesome if in SA3 you could download an app on your phone and raise your chao tamagotchi style ^_^
Holy crap. Email Sega right now, that's freaking brilliant!
There are already stories mentioning that they've got a live-action/animated mix Sonic movie coming out in 2018. Maybe this is a hint at a preview of what they've come up with so far?
will sonic kiss a princess in that movie?
Will it feature Christian Weston Chandler and Sonichu?
I'm hoping they cast Tony Danza as the voice of Sonic.
That would be amazing but I don't know how this indicates SA3... If they did bring it back though...they better bring the chao garden back.
Gotta go fast!
Something to go along with the movie perhaps? I'd be all over Sonic Adventure 3 though. The first two were probably the best 3D Sonic games, uncooperative camera aside :P
Meh, after Sonic Boom, it's really difficult to be hyped for another Sonic game.
Totally different developer. This is most likely a game by the core Sonic Team, most recently behind Colours, Lost World, and Generations.
Generations and Colours are really good, Lost World it's mediocre.
I wouldn't mind a Sonic: The Dark Brotherhood sequel as well. Still one of the most underrated DS games IMO.
I hope so >_< , it will be amazing if that's true.
If it is a sonic adventure 3. PLEASE release on Xbox and ps4. None of this wii u only nonsense
More than likely it'll be some sort of collaboration between Madeon and Sonic. Also considering that the Sonic Twitter loves yanking people's chains with false clues, it's hard to say if it's anything at all. Then again, this has been a lot more cryptic than before, and there doesn't seem to be an obvious joke, so it could go either way at this point. But SA3? I doubt it.
Well, I might give it a chance as long as it doesnt have anything to do with Boom. That game bombed.
Is this related to the recently announced movie?
We shall see. It wasn't that long ago people thought SA 3 or Sonic Episode 3 was teased and instead it was a retro games collection for the 3DS.
Oh yes!! Yes yes yes! I love Madeon. Saw him live 2 Wednesdays ago and he played so many new songs. Madeon and Sonic? Sign me up.
I hope so. Ps4 day 1 if true XD
They just need to call it Sonic 2016 for the anniversary.. the 10 year one.
Please and not just on the shitty wii u
looks more like a remake of sonic 1
Hopefully Sonichu is included. http://sonichu.com/w/images...
I won't get my hopes up for Sonic Adventure 3, but if they do make it i hope we see the return of Chao World, they could do great things with it now. I don't know this band Madeon but i checked them out and i'm not a fan, bring back Crush 40 i say.
Madeon is not a band. He is an electronic producer from France. PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale uses his song "Finale." Check it out. Check out his other songs"La Lune" Technicolor" and "Zephyr."
I don't know, man. Please everyone be very careful with getting your hopes up. Let's not forget that Sega is well known for being one of the biggest letdown companies around with their teases and announcements. Remember the whole Phantasy Star Online US debacle? The announcement just recently about, "something special coming tomorrow" that turned out to be a compilation of some old games nobody asked for? Or any Sonic game in the last ten years (save for one)? I've learned my lesson. I'll be watching this with absolutely no expectations. Sega isn't the company they used to be, that's for sure.
I would die... I've been waiting for a Sonic Adventure 3 since 2002... 😍
I don't want a new Sonic Adventure. I want a new Chao Garden, even if it comes with Sonic Adventure for free. Chao Garden 3!
If done right this could be awesome!
If done right this could be amazing!
Don't play with my heart like this!!!!! Could Sega have finally gotten their shitt together?
I occasionally play 1 & 2 on my genesis or Retron 5 , I would love an updated Sonic. Most of the other "Sonic games" were poor to say the least.
Anniversary of something Sonic??
