I get that Japanese companies are chasing that mobile money dragon, but perhaps they should at least study the market before crossing over a dying brand with a dying brand.

They could of went with Sonic and the Clash of Clans, or Sonic Game of War, or Five Nights at Eggman's... oh well.
 
So wait, is Epic a 3rd Mobile game being tossed in the mix, or is it an Angry Birds spin-off.

And hey, Angry Birds has to stay relevant somehow. And, admittedly, Sonic could use the boost, too. Mobile-only gamers will probably eat this up, as much as this crossover confuses and irks me.

Angry Birds Epic is an rpg-ish spin-off released last year. That's why they have swords and magic and shit.

It's a game where you launch cartoon birds at 2x4's, and it hasn't been a relevant series in 3-4 years. Why not just make a new IP?

Even though the rest of the IP is floundering, their mobile presence has actually been growing.

What even is this?


This would be the same as a Mario x Ecco the Dolphin game, it doesn't make any sense.


Actually that game with Mario 64's swimming controls would be scary as hell!


You *wouldn't* want a Mario game where you're trying to help a dolphin save the world from giant aliens who have descended to consume earth's ocean wildlife?


Edit: also this game looks terrible I hope eggman beats the birds

I feel like you're really underestimating just how popular both franchises are right now on mobile.

Fuck me, I thought that was just another joke from the Sonic twitter account. It just sounds so...made up

The poster should have had the bird 3d or Sonic 2d...not that mismatch they actually have. Looks like a shit Photoshop.

"Angry Birds Sonic Dash Epic"

Who came up with that title? That sounds like something an edgy kid who looks at too many dank memes would come up with. Actually, scratch that, the entire concept of this game sounds like a dank meme.

This sounds like both sides are grasping straws to stay relevant in the mobile gaming industry.

Plus that title looks pretty bad, similar to how a title of a little kid's short story would be.

Doesn't the "Epic" come from these bird being from the rpg spinoff rather than the regular Angry birds?


Let that sink in. Sonic is not even crossovering with Angry Birds, it's crossovering with an Angry Birds Spinoff.
