SEGA and Sonic Team are looking to Monetize Sonic.
Its gonna be a massive and total reboot.
They are commited to the reboot.
Speed, Platforming, and surreal environments are the same.
Sonic and Eggman's rivalry will continue.
Sonic and Eggman will get a massive makeover.
Everything else (Yes, everything.) are seeing radical changes. Including Tails.
New universe and characters.
New gameplay and gimmicks.
No concern of photo realism,
Might be Like Burnout Paradise.
Zones return as massive levels with a bunch of missions.
Could have models/figures for collection to target the young audience. Also used to unlock special features in-game.
New cartoon series is thought of.
Classic characters are DLC.
From my impressions, most of it doesn't sound good. With the new universe, and ideas from other games, I just think it won't be such a good idea. Also, about the makeovers, I think that Sonic and Eggman will look ridiculous. Granted, that may be because I am thinking of Skylanders, but still... I also like the fact they are having figures (Because I like to collect those) and a cartoon show (Maybe), but, I hope they don't focus to little on the game itself, and just make a bunch of figurines to collect. I have the feeling the gameplay will be radically changed as well, and not for the better. If SEGA is inspired by Skylanders and Burnout Paradise, I think its a bad idea to take those ideas, and put them into Sonic. Don't get me wrong, I am welcome to change, and I like change, but it doesn't seem like it fits.
In short: I think it won't turn out so well because of the radical change and ideas from said games.
What is your opinion on this?
