Sonichuman Posted August 26, 2021 Share Posted August 26, 2021 (edited) I've been waiting for an opportunity to do this thread mostly because it had been mostly quiet on the Sonic front by the time I fully migrated over here but now we have some things cooking and coming up on the horizon. So to get things up to speed in the first post let's start with the closest thing coming out at the moment being Sonic Colors imminent rerelease coming 09/07. related vids Spoiler The game will run in 4K60 fps on the new gen platforms, 1080/60fps on PS4/Xbone and 1080/30fps on Switch. If you've never played this game since it was exclusive to Wii then I highly recommend it unless you are one of those weirdos out there that's comparing this game to it running on the dolphin emulator and saying that it looks better running on dolphin. Extra include the whole OST being redone (for better or worse...some of the music is going to be polarizing based off some of the stuff I've heard thus far but I hope I'm wrong), Metal Sonic being retconned into being involved and a new wisp power taken from Team Sonic Racing. Sonic just recently celebrated his 30th birthday with a big Symphony concert It was Good! Great! Outstanding!! AAAAMMAAAZZZINNNGG!!!! Ohtani and Crush 40 killed their sets in this. There's also another 3D Sonic game on the horizon that is so far rumored to be Sonic Rangers. There rumored/leaked information about it floating around out there but nothing confirmed right now. I'm hoping that most of the leaked information is outdated or just wrong since most of it is not flattering at the moment. Sonic has his sequel movie coming with Idris Elba just recently announcing that he will be voicing Knux. Johnny Gioeli teased that Crush 40 may be involved If I had any major grips regarding the 1st movie is that they have a series well known for it's music and barely did any arrangements, leitmotifs, or anything save for rendition of Green Hill Zone by Jon Batiste at the very end. I'm hoping the sequel does a better job of embracing the games musically cause there's so much there that for it not to be used would be a crime. Sonic is getting another animated show for Netflix called Sonic Prime. Very little is known about the show at this point save for rumors and supposed art leaks showing the characters with redesigned gloves and shoes. Series won't be out until next year from what I understand so not much to say on that right now. What else what elsssseee...The IDW comic series just got done with a crazy major arc that I would recommend giving a read if you haven't regarding Eggman and a techno virus that got out of hand. The IDW as a whole is actually really good IMO...If you don't have a comic store near you ( or just plain don't want to pay for comics) then I can provide you with a website to read them through PM. Or if you don't feel like reading and just to get the gist with spoilers of what happened then I recommend listening to The Game Apologize talk about it in his Sonic Speed Reading series He's gone through everything that's happened in the IDW universe up to the conclusion of the Metal Virus saga. There is a fan dub of the comics that's ok at the moment but mileage may vary on that. Personally I think some of the voice actors are still trying to find their footing but they seem to be getting better (The guy voicing Eggman is actually pretty solid) Sonic has also been showing in in a wide variety of other games for his 30th anniversary which includes an Olympics game that's not Mario & Sonic related, Minecraft, a hospital game, and Super Monkey Ball. Only other thing semi Sonic related is Alvin Earthworm's SMBZ reboot getting its 2nd episode after a long wait even though Sonic didn't have a major role in that ep but I know plenty of Sonic fans like his series so I figured I'd mention that as well. I think that's covers just about everything aside from the various fan games out there that have been doing some pretty interesting things which will probably get posted later. Well....sound off below! Welcome to the newly minted Sonic thread and let's try to keep it friendly between the 2D and 3D fans.
