Sweet, though why those characters? I've atleast heard of Mighty, but never knew the Squirrel existed. Physical is $10 more than digital so atleast I don't feel bad about not waiting.

I want Sonic mania 2 alot aswell. I am still cross that Mania didn't get Ice cap.

But, the remixed levels will help.

 

You're not a Sonic Fan so you probably missed them, but they are older than knuckles (and probably Tails).

They have been noticeably forgotten and will be re-introduced to the plebs now. Be happy... it could be Cream or Big. Be careful what you wish for. :P

Yes Ice Cap is such an amazing level! A crime they failed to include it in both Mania and Generations it is. Also what's so bad about Cream? Not that it would be her, I'd expect fan favorites like Shadow and Blaze.

Cream and big are characters i consider to be "fluff". They are there only to be cute. They aren't very interesting or have any interesting stories or plot interactions. I honestly think the games would be better if they didn't show up again.

On the main topic, i'm surprised so many of you waited for a physical edition. You missed out. I'm glad it was still sucessful enough to bring this version and possibly sequals.



Nice to see a physical release. Everything else about this seems like it's going to be a really cool, but is it really necessary to bring back a punch of pointless and annoying side characters. As if the series isn't already straining under the weight of its awful side characters being brought back for no good reason every few releases.

This is classic Sonic. Classic characters have a better chance than modern ones. Those are for those "fantastic" Sonic team games. xD

Ah yeah that does make sense. They still coulda used Amy or Vector as characters who're atleast recognizable, but eh I like squirrels so I'm good!

Me too, the game is a fucking blast and so many people have been holding to play it, damn...

I personally loved the idea, those two characters (and some others) are so old and unused that even a good bunch of people here didn't even knew they were a thing and thought they were new... a nice idea to bring them back, with a retro game instead of the 3D ones.

Are them just Sonic and Tails clones? Sure, but they deserve to be known!

Why tho? :L



Shame they didn't do this from the start.

At least they've added some nice extras, so it should chart fairly well.

Because they were Sonic's first friends and have been forgotten for a long time. I find them to be pretty cool characters too. Mighty for example can wall jump. Ray has never been done in 2D style, so i wonder what his special move will be. Probably gliding like knuckles.

 

Like, these are old but new friends for many people who will now be introduced to them. The game keeps a new but classic vibe without being tainted by any modern Sonic stuff.

They are making these animations on youtube. Will be 5 episodes. I believe they will retell the SegaSonic the hedgehog arcade story of how he met them. They are confirmed to be in it, so it will introduce them at any rate.



now I gotta decide if I want it on PS4 or Switch. I got a custom case for Switch as a stand in, so it would clash if I got it on Switch,but if I got it on PS4, I'd feel dirty as I only buy Sonic related stuff on Nintendo consoles. Rahhhh
