Sonic, Tails, Amy and Knuckles are getting face lifts and body work done (as you can tell by the article picture.) Nintendo’s final exclusive Sonic title is called Sonic Boom, and already people are voicing strong opposition to it. Being released in 2014:
- Sonic has undergone some changes and now dons a brown scarf and longer legs
- Amy looks unchanged for the most part
- Tails seems to be an engineer/braniac
- Knuckles has grown some few feet taller and hit the gym; skipping leg day it seems
Sonic Boom is being developed by two different studios. A new studio by the name of Big Red Button Entertainment is handling the Wii U version while the masterminds of Sly Cooper Collection and Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time developer Sanzaru Games is handling the 3DS version. The 3DS version is said to be more like Sonic Adventure with the main hub and branching missions will make a return.
I think this looks very fresh. While the Wii U verison seems to be a spotlight of 4-player CO-OP, I wonder how the 3DS version will play on that, if at all. This game also seems to be a fun, kick-back Sonic title to have some friends over with. I’m excited!
