I don't mind a cartoon, but character redesigns is too reminiscent of Loonatics Unleashed for me
I think it has the most potential out of all the Sonic cartoons.
I do not like the idea of redesigning Sonic & Co., but as long as it doesn't get in the games or comic I'm fine.
Speaking of the comic, I wonder if this show will have the same mandates Archie does
>>54751487>I do not like the idea of redesigning Sonic & Co
The current Sonic character designs are copy/paste garbage and redesigns are the best thing that can happen right now.

No one looks all that different except Knux, and at least he has a reason for being HUEG
There's good redesigns and there's bad redesigns.
Knuckles needs to be handled differently, there is nothing good about him as it is.
At the very least, you don't take away his fucking signature giant spiked boxing gloves.
Did Knuckles take steroids?
I can live with that.
you can take away the gloves, just leave the spikes
>>54751798>strong and intense guy>new design makes him look strong and intense from just a silhouette >bad
I don't know. Sonic's looking kind of scruffy. I'd wager it's more than a few stray quills when we see his actual design.
>>54751380>shoving Amy into EVERYTHING
Hoo-fuckin'-rah, now I won't have to worry about it being good.
You can over do it.
From the shadows alone, it's hard to tell if any of the characters besides Knuckles will be undergoing any drastic changes. Sonic's spines, and Amy's outfit are the only things I can see.
In a weird way, I don't really mind the idea of Knuckles being bigger than the others, since he tends to be portrayed as the dumb muscle anyway. Don't know why they're giving him fingers, though. The only explanation I can think of is that they figure they want to be able to animate him with full use of his hands, rather than clumsy looking mittens.
It's been that way sense adventure.
She was just supposed to be a one time character from CD. But no, Sonic need more story means love interest and color swap rival.
While everyone's crying over Knuckles looking cool, this here is what I'm legit afraid of.
I really hope they don't push Sonic and Amy together in this.
Well, from the silhouette it seems they haven't.
Or you're going to cry out that it'll look bad for sure despite the only thing we have so far looking good?
Like I said in my post, I'm afraid of these designs getting into the games somehow.

I love Amy's outline.
Ummmm.... how is the Sonic franchise still relevant enough to release a new show, considering how spotty the track record of Sonic games since roughly Sonic Adventure?
Why else would she be there anon?>>54752106
The design itself is fine, but I think it simply takes to many liberties with the expectation of the character. Simply saying that he's supposed to be imposing does not mean an automatic pass to turn him into a giant brute.
>>54752165>entire plot revolves around Sonic looking for his lost girlfriend>amy tries to be his new girlfriend, tries to get him to give up looking for her>turns out, Sally's been robotocized, and is the new leader of the eggman army
Same reason the Rabbids and Pacman got a series.
>>54751998>I don't really mind the idea of Knuckles being bigger than the others, since he tends to be portrayed as the dumb muscle anyway
HERE I COME ROUGHER THAN THE REST
I'm a little bit hyped to see how this goes. Of course I was never a fan of any of the Sonic tv series, comics, or any of the games after the classics.
I don't really think there's much of a reason for /co/ to be flipping their fedoras over this, but I do understand that Sonic fans seem pretty fucking serious about the franchise.
So who would win? Squidward or Knuckles?
I think you mean how bad since Sonic Heroes to somewhere after '06.
The new games are apparently popular enough with the kids to justify a new show in some exec's mind.

All of these still sucked and were definitely low quality games (and one 3/4 of a game). The point is that the last half decade or so has not been a perfect uphill trend for Sonic, no matter how you try and artificially qualify it.

Press release teaser images are the most unflattering images in the world, aren't they? Remember when this was all we had to base Animated off of?
I strongly disagree, he's an Echidna not a Gorilla.
inb4 reverse attempt at realism not applying.
My point here isn't whether it's realistic, it's focusing on universally identifiable traits instead of incorporating caricatures. Giving Knuckles the Echidna a bigger build helps with the whole strong guy thing, giving Knuckles the Echidna Gorilla arms isn't going to help the character.>>54752656
I agree, but let's not start adding even more confusing elements.
To be fair most of DJW's shit looks awful in still images.
>>54752762>he's an Echidna
It's been pretty rough, all things considered. Sonic Team fumbled around with the Storybook series and Unleashed before they hit their stride with Colors and Generations (and possibly Rivals). And to be perfectly honest, the only thing thing that's gone up is the gameplay. The stories are a joke now. Of course most people don't care about that, hence why money is being made.
Well he said potential, not quality.
And it's easy to gauge that based on the premise.
Instead of being Sonic and the Freedom Fighters, Prince Sonic and his royal siblings , Sonic in an alternate human world or any other weird variation it's just Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy for some reason vs Eggman with other characters and villains showing up now and then.
The lack of setting restraints means the simplification gives it more potential.
>>54752813>Sonic and the Freedom Fighters
That was a good coherent setting though.
As much as Sonic any Amy are Hedgehogs.
I actually thought the Storybook thing had potential, since Sonic is partly based off of old cartoon protagonists and those guys were in all sorts of fairy tale adaptations.
I hope they revisit the concept someday.
(65.60 KB, 639x640)
I'm not liking Shoulders the Echidna. Knuckles always had a defined silhouette and looks way different from Sonic, so I don't see the need to change it.
>>54752812>The stories are a joke now
Yeah, after 06 they it kinda just gave up. Unfortunate I guess, but I guess that's why they're making a show now.
Knuckles barely resembles an echidna as it is.
Besides, his game design already has his arms tapering more toward his huge fists anyway, if you're going to exaggerate his strength, that's the direction to go.
They're not exclusively gorilla arms, man. Go look at any bulky Sonic character besides Big.
Hey, if it means better games with a focus on actual gameplay instead of corny cutscenes and pointless exposition, I'm all for it.
Pretty much sums up what I meant in my post. >>54752833
We have two comics for that though.
He's a pretty big fella...
Cartoons tend to exaggerate things like entire body builds or accents and the like to get more of a spectrum. I don't have a problem with it, but I hope they keep it out of the games. We have characters like Vector and Big the Cat filling out our hulking giant roster.

I'm not sure what you're getting at here.
If anything, Knuckles being the only power-based character to not look like that is what makes him unique amongst them, and helps his status as rival.
I'm not sure if I'm glad that tired reference was missed or disappointed.
It was DKR Bane "FOR YOU" set up
See, that's good for you, and for enough of the audience for SEGA to keep up the trend. Me? I screwed myself over by coming in with Adventure 2 (and really liking its take on things). Sonic games are headed in the exact opposite direction, and will be for the conceivable future. But hey, at least some older fans are happy now.
We don't really know if he's going to be a rival in this cartoon, though. Don't forget how long he's been a friend of Sonic now. He's rivalry gets swept under the rug pretty exclusively now.
Woooh, what was wrong with heroes? I thought it was absolutely brilliant.
(470.54 KB, 1000x868)
He's friendly, but they still squabble. Sonic X especially loved to play that shit up.
I'm sure one day they'll be able to have a decent story that doesn't interrupt the flow of gameplay. Being able to take full advantage of the medium it is instead of using mediocre interaction as an excuse for a movie after every level.
That's kind of hard to pinpoint. The story sucked, but theoretically the gameplay should have been good. It was a further refinement of the Sides aspect that had been introduced in SA2 as a further refinement of the old Character Chapters system from SA1. It also consolidated the different playstyles so you didn't have to go through a full level of side characters doing their thing before getting back to the speed stages.
It /should/ have been good, but having four different teams for the sake of padding out the game ended up really bogged things down.
I wish we could get more Day In the Life interactions like this between Sonic and pals in the games. Too bad it seems to conflict with the whole high speed gameplay focus.
I'd like stuff like the bonus videos in Unleashed. Just little vignettes that you don't have to look at. Unfortunately that'd be a ton of extra work for pretty much no payoff for the game devs...
Don't group us in the same pot, I started with the Genesis games and loved the idea of a mythos the second I saw the Hidden Palace Mural. It made the Doomsday Zone pay off all the more worth it and exciting. You were just a rodent running around on a Floating Island and now the prophecy has been fulfilled. A prophecy about a golden flying hedgehog in orbit redirecting missiles towards a giant robot attempting to steal a massive exotic energy emitting gemstone. But a prophecy nonetheless. There was a sense of legitimate completion Sonic 1 and 2 lacked due to 1 just sort of having the Chaos Emeralds "Captain Planet" South Island and 2 tacking on Super Sonic with little significance outside gameplay. Sonic 3 & Knuckles made the Emerald Hunt worth it for both gameplay and story what little there was. That's the middle ground we should aim for.
I'm not sure where or when this idea of story bleaching in video games started but it's the wrong response to the hollywoodification of video games. We shouldn't want LESS stories just because writers are bad, we should want BETTER stories from good writers.
It's like swearing off food because one or two chefs screwed up a dish.
I just want my cutscenes not to take up so much time. Better writers help, but I play games to -play- them. If they can smoothly integrate the story into the actual interaction, that's even better.
I completely agree about this. Too bad SEGA's never going to hire better writers as long as the current bunch keeps making them money.
Not me. I lose all interest in something when the plot goes "You were DESTINED to do this! THE PROPHECY!"
Amy's been a core character since what... 1997? She's been one of the four main cast longer than she HASN'T.
The story itself could of used some changes, but that gameplay... especially since it was the first sonic game I'd played since Genesis and Mega-drive.
I wish we had Mighty in this
Part of Knuckles charm is that he's a tough guy without really looking the part.
If we want strong guys who look the part, we got Vector, Storm, and a bunch of robits.
Technically she only became a core character sense adventure. The first time she was just a random one time chick.
As long as we're talking about stuff that's never going to happen, I kind of wish SEGA would make a spin-off alternate universe for the fans that want a bit more seriousness to their Sonic. While it would help net them people who might not like the direction the franchise is taking right now, it would probably divide their efforts too much to predict reasonable returns.
Don't forget>Chronicles>Black Knight>Colors DS
Wonder if Shadow will show up.
I remember the TFW thread where the first batch of designs were revealed and everyone sweared up and down that Animated would end up the red hair stepchild of Transformers series.
She was in Sonic R and probably a few other things. Sure she was just the obligatory female character even then though.
Right, what's your point? She's been a major player since 1998 and was in a bigger tv series than either of the american sonic love interests. Everyone knows her as sonic's girlfriend or at the very least, the girl who has a crush on sonic.
Besides, the same could be said about Knuckles or literally any Sonic character besides Tails and Robotnik.
Not really. She showed up in Sonic R and Sonic the Fighters, she was in a lot of the promotional art. She wasn't playable in the main series, but she was recurring cast back when that meant something.
they're fucking silhouettes
The real animated Sonic is that hilarious, perverted OVA and the Sonic CD stuff.
He'll probably either be horribly misused if he does.
I still remember the Ape Escape Cartoon. Always makes me wonder when it comes to video game adaptions.
Are you implying there's anything good they can do with Ow The Edge?
Was that cartoon any good?
I remember him and Rouge being funny together in Battle.
Probably. Shadow is a part of the very small modern cast. I can't imagine they won't squeeze him in at some point.
I just realized we are going to have to listen to Amy's Minnie Mouse high-pitched voice.
just hope they do him well. I mean, it's not impossible.
We don't really know what the new voices will be.
Even knuckles looks like he's going to be voiced as a black thug style character.
There are certain ways they could portray him that would work. See the comics for a good example.>>54753643
Fuck no, it was horrible on every level.
Archie proved that.
Don't forget Drift and Drift 2.
Is it bad that when I saw the silhouette of sonics, I imagined it to be a Marty Mcfly vest?
It just seemed like something Sonic would wear.
Roger Craig Smith tweeted about it, so I'm assuming at least he is involved.
He makes a good grumpy egotistical straight man.
I did and I'll do it again.
I don't see a problem with his Sonic.
So did Mike Pollock.
I just, don't like it. Maybe it's all the cheesy lines he had in colors, but it seems like his inflection is missing something.>>54753781
That, however, is a good thing.
They're using the game's cast
>>54753799>Minnie Mouse Amy as a main character
If Scratch and Grounder aren't in this, it's absolutely pointless.
I don't either.
I have to admit though, I was starting to like Jason a lot in Sonic Unleashed, so I'd be lying if I said I wasn't sad that they got rid of him once he really started hitting his stride/Sonic started being in semi-decent games.
Speaking of Unleashed, I really hope this series draws a lot from that game
That's exactly how I feel. It really was a shame.
Shadow's new voice sucks asshole too.
NIgga, who cares? We don't have Mighty in the series.
While I didn't necessarily like the game itself, I thought the world they made for it was pretty great, pixarish humans and all. I definitely wouldn't mind them taking influence from it.

That's because Sonic 2006's story is hilariously bad, and probably one of the worst stories in Sonic 2006.
They just figured, well maybe we shouldn't have grimdark, romance stories in Sonic. Just keep most of the stories simple and lighthearted, then overly complex/deep.
Sorry but Orbot and Cubot are your designated duo robot lackeys.
You had me until Shadow
Even the True Netural storyline of Shadow is awful.
Speaking of bad storylines, it's pretty fucking amazing on how awful Sonic 2006's storyline is that it managed to kill of the idea of Sonic ever having a story in the game, even on the level of something like Adventure (which wasn't really that complex)
Like how come no one in the future has any idea of what the Chaos Emeralds are or how to seal Iblis away, but they know that it's called Iblis? Someone would have had to told them, right?
Wouldn't anyone who knows what Iblis really is be the only one to know it's name, and thus how to seal it away as well?

This new TV show is win/win for Archie Sonic.
Either it's a huge success despite not being like the games, so that will shut up the obsessive crowd who always complains the comic is not gamey enough.
Or it's a huge failure, and due to the comic being closer to the game canon, (and the games hardly doing story anymore) cements Archie Sonic as the definitive Sonic canon.

I hate to admit that, if you did this, I wouldn't really care as much about roided Knux.
His look for decades has been big hands and small arms, so when it flips around to the opposite it looks really weird. It's like if Sonic suddenly has tiny eyes and fucking huge ears.
Someone asked Flynn if he'd have to reboot again.
He said "No. *text can't convey the huge grin on my face right now*"
They've probably redesigned Knux in the games as well already. You can't stop it. They already did it 35 minutes ago.
Dimps just needs to stop doing the handheld games entirely.

That might explain why we haven't seen a screenshot of him for Lost World
I don't think so. Archie did an official prequel comic for Lost Worlds, and while only a few people have got it since it was supposed to come out at the end of October, not the beginning of it, nobody has made any mention of Knuckles looking any different.
Though that should be obvious since none of the other Lost World characters have this new design.
But there still is one more Nintendo exclusive game Sega has to announce.
Nobody mentioned Knuckles at all.
Yes they did.
Still Ian dropping any hint that the designs may be changing across mediums is worrisome for me at least.
I don't either, he's been getting better lately.
But his line delivery needs work, and I think he's just getting poor direction. I've listened to his other work, he's a very capable voice actor.
As far as the games are concerned, Sonic Team is too busy playing it safe to do anything slightly out of the norm. For better or for worse.

I honestly feel the same way. Like everytime I enter one of these threads there is this one guy who complains how all sonic characters look the same. Like they even used the argument that recognizable silhouettes make for good character designs, as if the two characters aren't differentiable from their sillhouettes..
They probably won't.

Well, there is "different for recognition" and "different for sake of difference". Each approach has its own pro and contra. People speak about as this thing is "in style" and that one isn't, but was there ever any consistent SegaSonicStyle (tm) at all? Shifts and changes all around, that's what I say. Each and every game and adaptation brought something of its own into mix, and we can only argue if this is closer to (non-coherent) SSS or further from it. We have no means of measurement. Rounded heads? Nah. Tails head is elongated, Blaze has flattened triangle and Nack has cone. Same for body shapes. Okay, I hear "Large eyes!". Then Big comes and says "Fwoggy?". And then we get Lost World pseudodemons thrown in. Taking the adaptations in, it's almost almost impossible to unify all the substyles - but should we?
All this shit reminds me of, excuse me the /tg/ analogy, WH40k codices. "Fun" and "serious" editions, "shit what are you doing" and okayish books and games, forgotten and updated lore, shitload of codex independant and even contradicting fanart... Guess, that's how it's for every large fandom, though.
One more example of Sega in charge of being consistent: Ray has webbed handwings, Bean has handwings too, then Rouge has separate wings, and then Babylon rogues have handwings again. And don't forget about Charmy, the four-limbed insectiod.
tldr: 1) Sonic Boom will be both different and same; 2) Being fan of one and only substyle is okay, as long as you don't go full retard about it.
Also, I'll laugh as madman if Knuckles' shadow was larger just because of him being closer to the light source and not because of him being fuckhueg.

I'm only with Knuckles being huge because Knuckles is actually supposed to be taller than Sonic in canon, even if it's only a few inches. I like that it could be considered an exaggeration.

No one can top Hat Knuckles!
So I wonder what happens to Knuckles gameplay (assuming he was playable) if these designs get into the games?
My best guess is that Sonic Team will reintroduce the beat'em up gameplay from Sonic Unleashed only with Knuckles, because I don't think he will be gliding around treasure hunting being fucking huge and all.
It's been too long since we've had a playable Knuckles.
When was the last time he DID glide since S3&K?
Sonic and the Black Knight, I think
Never got to play that one. Still he's been gliding in majority of the games.
God dammit why does every new show need to be CGI these days.
It was already bad news with Tails there.

You're half right.
You know people have been complaining a lot about Knuckles's size, but did anyone stop and think that he's standing closer to the light source simply giving off a bigger shadow?
Although it does looks misleading.
Sonic underground and Sonic 1 are the best Sonic media because they don't have tails.
Oh god, please no.
I'm trying to forget about those pieces of shit.

Then he'd have a really small head. And there's no reason for them to do that anyway.
>>54752177>Why else would she be there anon?
While unlikely, how about to act as player two while Tails gets resigned to operating machinery in the background and cutscenes?

I know autistic people less autistic than that. And I'm not talking about the high-functioning Aspergers type of autistic person, no I'm talking about the sort of people who can barely talk.
Personally I think it's about time, the franchise has needed a serious retooling for about 15 years now

Goddamn, whoever design his Smash version needs a raise.
Friendly reminder that they can never use the hat again, because of Ken Penders.
Cartoon logic doesn't factor these things in.
I wonder if Panders getting rights to the Knuckles clones has anything to do with his drastic re-design.
From what we can see I'm liking Knuckles design. It always annoyed me that the strong character had the exact same build as every other character. Of course it'll cause a shitstorm in the Sonic fan base but they'll freak out over any change

you know what.
I'm okay with redesigns.
though tails should probably be a little shorter unless they're gonna give him a few years to his age.
also, one thing I'd love to see is a return of that Merhog girl from AOSTH.
I hate how having a criticism about a change in a character's design will suddenly make you an autist.
You have to either like it or don't care.
Caring about anything makes you autistic these days

It just depends on how far gone you are into said care.
Unfortunately, the word autism has lost all its actual true meaning on 4Chan.
Just like edgy.
