SEGA has announced the album "Sonic Colors Ultimate Original Soundtrack - Re Colors", which will feature new remixes and tracks, including a new version of"Reach for the Stars". The release is expected on September 29, 2021. And also about the weight of the game: it will take 6.9 GB. Well, as a bonus, screenshots from the version for Nintendo Switch:
IDW will release a four-issue comic book collection dedicated to "Sonic the Hedgehog 2". This will be a prequel to the film called "The Official Movie Pre-quill", which will be written by Gail Galligan. The release is expected on April 5, 2022. Here is the description of the collection: "Before you watch "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" in cinemas, find out what the Blue Demon was doing after the end of the first film! Life is good in the Green Hills for Sonic the Hedgehog. Probably even too good. He starts to get bored, and when Sonic gets bored, then everyone is no longer bored — and quickly! You don't have time to say "Chili Dog", and the fastest Creature in the World saves everyone and creates chaos wherever possible! Will Tom and Maddie be able to slow down his craving for heroism? In addition, old and new characters from "Sonic in the Movies 2" will now be the main characters in their own stories!"
Aside from the shoes that look as cool as weird, the rest of the art is GORGEOUS. I'm fascinated by the alternate Eggmen, mechanic infinite-tailed Tails and savage Amy? I dunno, the multiverse thing seems to be wilder than I expected! I guess most images (the ones with taking place in that Eggmanland/Chemical Plant-like place) might be part of the same episode.
(BTW, as @BonnitoPlay once proposed... does anyone know how to change the topic's title? We know the show is called Sonic Prime, no need to call it Netflix's Sonic anymore)
Now Sonic is officially available in Minecraft! The set includes: 24 skins and a map in which you can pass levels and special stages. You can buy it on all platforms that have Minecraft: Bedrock Edition.
So, certain franchise turns 30 today... And I wanted to make a little homage to it:
A very simple collage where the silhouette of Sonic is formed by several pieces of media, while the background features my own artwork. A symbol of what this series has given us, and how we respond by creating more.
Here's what Takashi Iizuka said recently about the game from various interviews: The game will be a "progress" for modern Sonic games.Sonic Team spent a lot of time trying to create "something new and complex".The game is not an anniversary game.He hopes that the game will lay the foundation for future games, as Sonic Adventure did in it's time.The teaser was shown to show everyone that the team is really busy developing a new game.
Producer Calvin Wu shared new details about the re-release in another interview, this time for Gamespot. It became known that: The gold medals that can be seen in the gameplay videos are called "Park Tokens". They can be exchanged for various items that change the appearance of Sonic and his attacks.The remaster has a new mechanic called "Sweet spot attack", which in the case of accurate execution of the attack at a certain time will give Sonic additional acceleration.As a bonus, catch a new gameplay video and one of the remixes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bH_JSyZ1J84&ab_channel=SonictheHedgehog
New details from Iizuki's interview for GameInformer: The games will work in the 16:9 format (Well, we already know that)The collection will have new features that are not available even in the SEGA Ages versions.The collection will be available on different platforms.The collection will be released on physical media.Iizuka is looking forward to the release of the collection. It's all the fault of Sonic 3 & Knuckles.
Some important moments from the interview with Takashi Iizuka and Kazuyuki Hoshino for Famitsu magazine regarding Sonic Colors Ultimate: The postscript "Ultimate" says that according to Iizuki's idea, the upcoming game has many things that were not in the original game, which makes it the "final version".The game removed the old system of lives.Adding Tails will make it easier for beginners, for whom the game is released.With the Jade Ghost, the player will be able to access previously inaccessible areas.New locations will appear on the levels, which can only be explored with the help of a Jade Ghost.Iizuka recommends "Sonic Colors Ultimate" as the "perfect Sonic" to those who have met the hedgehog through the film.
Tails will still appear in the game. Not as a playable character, but as a "safety cushion". If you collect the tokens of Tails (these are most likely the heads that appeared in the video of Brian Connelly), then he will raise Sonic from the abyss if he falls into them. This became known from the magazine Famitsu:
