That's what can happen when you listen to your fanbase and improve instead of curse and badmouth then.
Congrats Sonic, will watch with my son soon enough.

It's nice to see it doing well after the initial backlash. I think I'll watch it at some point, mainly for Jim Carrey.



Signature goes here!

Movie looks like good silly fun. Had good time with Pickachu also despite not interested in Pokemon games.

There is no Sonic game planned for 2020, but we do know they are working on a game for Sonic's 30th anniversary in 2021. Some rumors that it is either a remake of Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 or Adventure 3. 

Screw Sonic Adventure, give me more Sonic Mania.

Bring back some Master System levels too this time so I can cry even more while playing, please!

There are also rumors that Mania 2 is in development at Christian Whitehead's new studio, though we don't know if it will also be ready by 2021. But it definitely seems like we will get at least 1 big Sonic game in 2021 for Sonic's 30th anniversary, possibly 2.

I sure hope so.

Sonic Mania was the best thing since Sonic 2 and well the best thing apart only Sonic 2 as well.

It was extremely well received critically and in the fanbase, so not making more of it would be really stupid.

I wish they would make an even bigger game this time, with like 6 new zones plus 12 remakes. They can even throw Sonic Mania owners and add-on to play those zones in that game too.

A man can dream...

I didn't realize this earlier, but it made more money than Detective Pikachu. That's pretty crazy.

Not bad. Unless it's really front-loaded, it ought to gross at least $140-150M domestically. It still hasn't released in all markets yet (Japan and China aren't until later), and it ought to clear $300M WW assuming the domestic market is at least somewhat less than half the total global market. That's against a budget of $85M, so it ought to easily pass the threshold of profitability.

I plan on going to go see in on Tuesday after work.

China might be problematic with many theatres and other public gathering spots being closed and if allowed to be open people staying away.
