Sonic, Tails and Amy are a tad 2edgy4me, and I have no idea what Knuckles has been taking to look like that. I’m pretty sure SEGA stole the designs from someone’s original character for this.

Personally I’m okay with Sonic, Tails and Amy. I’m kinda curious why they have toilet papers as accessories, but at least they still have the same characteristics (at least face) that still says “That’s Sonic”. I think that’s a really important aspect whenever there’s a reboot in a franchise.

I’m starting to like Sonic’s design just because of this:

It’s probably the first time I ever saw Sonic so expressive. Say what you want about the designs, but I’m having high hopes for these animators.

@genericChampion:
Don’t worry, it’s just going to be a side-franchise, like how The Legend of Spyro was to the main Spyro games. Or how Paper Mario was to the main Mario series.

Oh here’s a trailer:

Remember people hating on Donte?

Remember the game turning out actually really good?

So I’m just going to wait and see first with this new Sonic.

Why are Sonic’s shins, shoes, and lower arms wrapped in toilet paper?

its used in martial arts to help prevent sprains or fractures.
Reminds me of Kamina.
Anyways, I don’t care for sonic, but the designs are pretty good .

Stop calling him Donte, it’s Dante, people. Also, that game was alright. Anyways, Knuckles looks like he took steroids and had breast implants.

I commented on the pic of this in Ruined Childhood, saying “Internet Paraphilia?” Thinking that some sects of the fandom would make erotic muscle fetish art of knuckles in response to this.

From what I’ve heard, the game based on the cartoon is being developed by Big Red Button. These guys are apparently made up of former Naughty Dog employees and one of theme even worked on the cancelled Sonic Xtreme game back on the Saturn. This might actually have some potential and promise!

I stopped calling him Dante, or Donte.
Been calling him Dino like everyone else.

So we’re all in agreement?
We’re okay with how the show looks like so far, and Sonic’s redesign?
And that the only problem is Steroids Knuckles, right?

Speaking of which, do you think Steroids Knuckles may have potential to become a meme?

Okay photoshoppers here’s what we need to do:

  • Knuckles gets a Minigun
  • Sonic gets a baseball bat and a jar of Mann Milk
  • Put a sentry in front of Tails
  • Amy gets a gas mask and replace that giant mallet with the Homewrecker

Ask and ye shall receive.

Honestly, I really can’t help but feel like this is a good step for the Sonic franchise. I know that the fandom right now is partly raging, but the games that have been released so far have been wrapped up in recreating some sense of nostalgia that just won’t make a game good, so to have a fresh direction be taken that also brings new young gamers in may be a good kickstart for Sonic.

Of course it could suck and then we’ll all just lol
