Sonic and his friends get a redesign...

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.

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

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.

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 .

It looks fine I guess, though I don’t know why they thought Knuckles needed to be huge now.

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

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

Jeez Knuckles, lay off the damn Steroids.

I don’t think any of the redesigns are bad, it’s mostly just weird getting a change this drastic.

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!

So… Sega made Sonic OC’s?

Also, why does Tails have wrench up his ass?

Chaos you say?

Honestly, like others have said before, they look like fan-made OCs, especially Knuckles. I don’t feel good about this already…

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

The Kool-Aid Man wasn’t as top heavy as Knuckles. He probably lifts. Using Indian elephants.

Let me guess, we’re going to call Knuckles, Knockles or KINO.

I don’t know about you guys, but I have a feeling that Knuckles is going to be the big tough idiot of the group. Just a hunch.

Whoa, a Sonic the Hedgehog game that has promise and potential?!

Have you not played Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations?!

If not, definitely try them.

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?

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
