Pre-Bear Yourself For New Sonic 4: Episode 2 Concept Art

Some may find this new badnik un”bear”able. Some may find him to be totally loveable. My feelings on the matter are completely polar. Sega’s Snowy here may look menacing, but I bet good ol’ Bark is worse than his bite. (Okay, that’s stretching it.) If these puns leave you cold, I’m afraid the ones after the link are really square. (Y’know, sometimes these are so bad I wanna slap myself.)

This box seems to strike a bit of a resemblance to Orbot’s companion cube when he’s all folded up. Could this possibly be Cubot or is it just a normal box full of goodies? Ooooh I know! Sonic opens it up and we find a Schrödinger’s cat badnik!

  1. The Bear looks like something right out of a MegaMan X game, the cube looks like Cubot alright.. or Bumblebee crushed into a cube ._.

  2. Wow, I love Snowy, sure he looks like more of a Megaman enemy, many other badniks also fit that characteristic. He just seems really menacing… like you’ll actually have to figure out a technique for him… yeah… and that Cubot looking cube seems pretty suspicious…

  3. Every time I check Sonic Stadium for the concept art I’m also some what excited for your puns, Jason!
    And about the box…Hmmm it’s either a kind of bomb that explodes when it comes in contact with Sonic or a kind of a platform…

  4. Snowy could be bigger than we are imagining and maybe the snow themed levels boss?
    the cube however maybe a more disguised version of the robotnik box trap from sonic 3?

  5. Dude, please stop making the 4Kids-style puns. Please, we don’t want a repeat of Sonic X all over again.

  6. LOL at the bad PUNS The Polar bear badnik looks cool 🙂 That cube does look like Cubot it’s probably a floating platform or part of a pf…

  7. I guess this is all to much to BEAR. Really interesting screenshots, concept art, a gameplay trailer on the way. SEGA really spoil us.

  8. u oughto snow that bark would think it would be unbear to replace him as the main bear plus bark is an emphasis on his bark is worse than his bite especially with his cold attitude and his silent treatment.

  9. I love that bear XD

    I hope we see Orbot again. Kirk might be struggling with Shadow, but dang does he do a great Orbot.

    …Who are these jokes written by, lol? XD

  10. Yeah, Snowy’s pretty COOL, I guess. Can’t wait to get my BEAR-HANDS on the game (I know, download only game, shut up). But that box looks very… FISHY…

    …So yeah, lookin’ forward to it. *cough*

  11. How can Orbot and Cubot come back if Sonic 4 Ep2 is chronologically earlier than Colours or Unleashed.
    (of course, i’m assuming that all Sonic 4 Eps are set just after the Death Egg saga with Sonic CD placed inbetween Ep1-2. I supose Ep2 could just be seen as a modern adventure).

    But are you people actually wanting characters who “only existed for cutscenes and dialog”?
    Is that what you want… Really… Cutscenes… and Dialog…?

    What would be cooler is if that box was similar to the MiniBoss of Launch Base Zone.
    ^Best Idea^

  12. D: Eggman Finally did it he Roboticized Bark the Polarbear D: poor one shot character lol

    puns are just wow.
