It's like they listened to what the fans wanted, being potbelly characters, and then did the extreme opposite.

Meh, not so bad. Looks like not much was done to Sonic except for the scarf. Knuckles just looks like he got beefed up.

Knuckles' proportions are weird. I like the scarf on Sonic, though. Long live scarves!

Sega's Deception would make for a good subtitle for a fair amount of Sonic games, notably Sonic 4.

for comparison, the original:

See, if they re-proportioned them to not be on fucking stilts, it wouldn't actually look so creepy.

That's a bit better, but the scarf and tape are really out of place. Knuckles can keep the tape.

This feels like a case of an architect being told his building is structurally unstable, and responding by changing its color.

The idea of this Knuckles gliding is so ridiculous.

I'm imagining his legs flapping uselessly behind him, like the tails on a kite.

Sonic looks fine. Knuckles looks weird but it's no big deal. I've never really cared about the character designs anyway to be honest. So much so that it wasn't until people posted that I realised Sonic's arms are a different colour. I've played every game in the series and I didn't even notice the difference. Shows how much I give a shit. Same with the green eyes thing a few years ago. Gameplay is what I care about with this series.

I'm not sure how anyone can be concerned about the new designs. Do you really care about Sonic in 2014?

Could have been like with DmC and capcom where some executives kept going: "No, not different enough. More! Do this!" You know, the graphic designer's nightmare?

Wait, are people seriously comparing him to Nathan Drake because of a fucking scarf? So is Link (Hyrule Warriors) also a Nathan Drake rip-off, now? Some really dumb comments going on, here.

Doesn't look bad considering their target audience. Not a fan of the redesigns but I didn't have any kind of interest in the Sonic cartoon anyway.

The fact that they just took Knuckles' old head and put it on a new, beefy body makes it look even weirder.

I think Sonic looks alright though.

Knuckles is in hulk-mode and everyone has insanely long legs. Serious, the worst is the legs. Legs to infinity.

Edit: ^^lol at Sonic Boom. Should be Sonic Legs

:dreams of the scarf having Shinobi scarf physics:

I actually like the new Sonic design. Here's hoping we see a more reserved, less snarky Sonic. Could be cool.

That Knuckles, though... :|
