I hope over time they redo the character designs to look more fluid. They look ugly compared to the concept art.

It's nice that this features the only four Sonic characters that matter. After Sonic Adventure, shit got out of control.

It's also nice that Amy doesn't look dumb and runs fast and does stuff now. That's cool.

More detailed does not equal better.

Hyper stylized does not equal inferior.

You're welcome to your opinion though.

Guys, do you remember "Sonic-16," the scrapped game based on SatAM?

That's essentially what this game is.

I'm going to assume that this is The Cartoon: The Game.
If this is meant to be the reboot of Sonic in general - Sonic fans have little to no reason to keep defending their favourite mascot now. They have aimed him specifically for 6-11 year olds.

So does that mean Sanzaru isn't working on Sly 5? Oh damn it, Sony should have just bought the studio and had them working on Sly and Jak games in order to keep older fans happy.

I'll see it when I believe it. People said the same thing about Sonic Chronicles.

The only thing that worries me substantially from the trailer are the bits that look a little too close to Sonic Heroes.

Beyond that, if Sega wants Sonic to take up the mantel left vacant by Jak and Daxter, I'm okay with that.

The character designs look so awful but the gameplay itself could potentially be decent. Such a sad day that Sonic design and aesthetics has come down to derivative corporate hipster chic mixed with yesteryear's wub, wub dubstep.

I don't even know what to think. For the first time in my life they have put out a Sonic trailer that makes me feel nothing. Not joy or anger, just nothing. Nothing about this appeals to me in any shape or form. This looks about as outsourced and focus tested as it can get.

The one thing the Sonic franchise didn't need after Sonic Lost World was a VISUAL change. That game turned out to be pap but the art style was close to perfection. but now this.

I....I don't think Sonic is for me anymore guys.

This isn't taking over the whole franchise, it is just a spin-off series.

Honestly, any sort of change to Sonic is welcome from me.

I'm one of those people that didn't even like Generations (I only played the first set of levels/boss, but I was so frustrated with some little design choices already that I didn't really want to play more).

Yeah, the TV character design will take some getting used to and has some issues, and those designs somehow didn't translate well at all to the game (...yet?) but overall, I'm not ready to hate this yet. It looks crisp and fast, it is exploring gameplay mechanics that we haven't seen since Sonic Heroes, it's using an engine that might prove itself well on Wii U (aside from characters, it comes off as attractive in the trailer,) it's not slavishly tied to Sonic's past (and thus the door is still wide open for classic Sonic,) and there are good people behind it. And, it's on a platform that could use a big game. I'm not overly confident, but I hope it manages to surprise people and turn out good.

They are made up of ex-Naughty Dog members. They haven't made any games yet but I'm pretty sure we might be in safe hands.

Since this is just a spinoff, I guess I'll give it a fair shot. The gameplay doesn't look bad. But man... those character models...

I think the thing that actually bugs me most about these designs is Sonic's blue arms.

You know what's really cool and extreme? Wraps. The more wraps, the more extreme! Kids love wraps.

The game might be interesting though. Exploration sounds good and as long as it isn't Adventure-grade gameplay fuckery the multiple characters could be decent.

Ah, well then yes. Though I wish the actual franchise it's happening to is a little more proven. People LURVED SATAM, Sonic boom is completely untested.

Well, we haven't had any CryEngine 3 games on the Wii U yet, so it's tough to say. The environments being much more visually ambitious than the ones in Lost World would point to 30 fps than not, though.

They've been actively hiring for 3D Combat Designers for awhile. I'm guessing that combat is definitely a focus of the game.
