Sonic Superstars Developers Explain Why They're Finally Abandoning Green Hill Zone

For the past few years, the Sonic franchise has had a Green Hill Zone problem. The opening level to 1991's original Sonic the Hedgehog is certainly iconic, but it seemed like the Blue Blur was returning to Green Hill just as often as Star Wars revisits Tatooine.

Sonic fans played through levels set in Green Hill Zone in 2011's Sonic Generations, Sonic Forces and Sonic Mania in 2017, and last year in Sonic Origins and Sonic Frontiers. But in Sonic Superstars — Sega's newly-announced sidescrolling Sonic game with 3D graphics and four-player co-op — the series is finally speeding away from the classic levels we've seen time and time again. In an interview with IGN, Sonic series producer Takashi Iizuka said Sonic Superstars will be full of fresh locations.

Time to branch out to other zone aka scenery.

Mine as well. And maybe I'll get Alan Wake 2 in December.

Probably same

Would have gotten Alan Wake 2 but I'll wait for a physical version...it will come eventually.

Already have SM2 ordered and FM installed. Gonna be a good birthday month for me.

Jin_Sakai2d ago

Mine is right around the corner in November. Hope you have a good one.

Mirage, Wonder & Front Mission 2 for me. I'm waiting on to see how that PS5 refresh turns out before buying a PS5 so no sense in getting Spider-Man 2 for me right now.

senorfartcushion1d 23h ago

Detective Pikachu Returns, Spider-Man and Alan Wake 2 for me

Profchaos1d 23h ago (Edited 1d 23h ago )

For me I've already got my pre order in for Spiderman and Mario but I'll also be grabbing pixel ripped 95 for psVR2 and trying to finish Cyber punk phantom liberty before the 20th

I really want sonic also but I just won't have the time maybe in December
