SEGA Releases New Sonic 4 Trailer

That little ditty at the end gets me every time.  (If this joke goes over your head, there’s probably a YouTube video of Lost Labyrinth: Act 2 still around.)

BONUS VIDEO: The now infamous mine-cart has made its way to WarioWare: D.I.Y:

  1. That was idiotic. A smarter move by SEGA would have been to release some actual gameplay footage instead of that weirdness at the end. Considering the things that have been leaked, a former presentation would have been nice.

  2. @MAiKU: Kidding, right? You know that this is a fanmade video making fun of how broken that minecart is… right? Please, please, please… be kidding.

  3. So like, FAIL, right?

    but seriously, it’s quite a shame to see this happen again… bugs start to loose their fun-factor after a while…

  4. I can’t believe SEGA would release a trailer like this! I mean, come on! It’s like they aren’t even trying anymore…

    That was actually quite amusing, and the video had a nice nostalgic feel until the end. Everyone said it was the guy playing who sucked, but it’s obviously the broken controls.

  5. I knew from the start that it was fake. It reads like some kind of fan tribute. Plus, they called Sonic and Knuckles a spin-off. That hurt =(

  6. Lol I totally got that XD

    For those who don’t get the joke:

    In the first part of Lost Labyranth Act 2 in the game, Sonic is in a minecart, and (on the Wii version anyway, I dunno about the others), you have to make it go buy tilting the screen with the Wii remote. ALOT of people complained about it…

    That was retarded of you not to put up some kind of thing at the end of your post stating it was a joke. I mean the title reads that SEGA released this… it would have never occurred to me to check the channel after that… It kinda played out that SEGA made a horrible joke-vid for sonic 4’s marketing campaign.

    All you managed to do is re-route my remarks (It was BAD) toward the idiot who made up the “funny” video.

  8. @Brad Flick:

    lol

    People here are seriously gullible. F-U-N-N-Y! And I wouldn’t be surprised if Sonic&Tails actually fell for your gag.

    Anyone here who thought this video was a real trailer, shame on you. It’s an “okay” video, but more on the lines of a production by a high school student. The music, text, and effects are quite below a real trailer, people. And the gag at the end really shouted out “fake.”

  9. Oh yeeeeeaaaaaah, it’s so funny. Hurr hurr…

    Forgive me if i find the reactions to the initial reactions more hilarious.

  10. That was breathtakingly awesome. It took every fiber of my being to not burst out laughing in the middle of my classroom.

  11. …..they should ban Sonic 4 talk on this website too like they did with SonicRetro since some idiots cant take a fucking joke without having anger issues.

  12. @MAiKU: You need to chill out, kid. Just because you got tricked, doesn’t mean you need to start preaching.

    If you are a regular visitor here, you should know how this site is formatted: official stuff is up top in the “Sonic News” and all fan-made stuff is down here in the “Community Blog.” If something “official” (note the quotation marks) is in the -community blog-, it’s titled that for comedic effect. That’s how you get people to watch the video. The ooool’ bait and switch.

    Plus, it’s always a good laugh to watch gullible people like yourself get all pissed off over nothing.

  13. Lol, t’was almost authentic. Man, this SHOULD’VE been an April Fool’s joke, but we’re too late for that. 😉

  14. Okay, I almost fell back when the mine cart showed up (tip: don’t set your speakers to the max when watching fake trailers)

    I admit I’m a bit fed up of these jokes. It’s not as if the Sky Chase wasn’t gimmickly horrible either, and it’s only 1 friggin’ level of the game. You guys “like” sonic so much that you end up disappointed with every release. do you actually have fun playing the games?

    (“You” as in.. haters and obsessed fanboys)

  15. I GOT TRICKED AND I CAN’T GET OVER IT BOO-HOO-HOO WHINE WHINE I’M SO STUBBORN THAT I CAN’T ADMIT THAT I LOOKED STUPID FOR BEING TRICKED SO I WILL COUNTER WITH SOMETHING THAT WASN’T MY ORIGINAL COMPLAINT TO BEGIN WITH. CRY MOAN WHINE. WHERE ARE YOU WEREHOG PLUSHIE? WE NEED TO CUDDLE.

  16. @MAiKU
    Geez, you got fooled. Let it go. No need to pull off a massive rant when no one has done any wrong.

    Besides, most things Brad posts are just for comedy or the occasional weirdness (see: Shadow’s cooking smores.)…uughh, bad memories.

  17. “(“You” as in.. haters and obsessed fanboys)”
    -If you’re on a Sonic fan site, then you are a fanboy. Way to insult yourself there. You could have left it at “haters.”

    “You guys “like” sonic so much that you end up disappointed with every release. do you actually have fun playing the games?”
    -Yeah, when they’re good. Sorry that I don’t like playing shit. My fault.

    Oh, and MAiKU, you are hilarious. I replaced your wall of text with something more brief so that people don’t have to read your crying. Later.
