In case you thought you’d never get to see Super Sports Tape Sonic, Stephen Frost has taken to the SEGA Forums to clarify on earlier comments made by a SEGA representative in an interview regarding the appearance of Chaos Emeralds in the Boom Universe. While it was initially said the Chaos Emeralds were not to appear, Frost says this isn’t the case and the Emeralds are still open to an appearance.
I just wanted to clear something up about the Chaos Emeralds as I think there was some initial confusion based upon an answer that Bob gave during an earlier interview. I believe he just misunderstood the question. When he said that there were no Chaos Emeralds, he simply meant that they do not appear in the upcoming Sonic Boom games. And there are specific reasons for this. However, that is not to say that they couldn’t exist within the overall Sonic Boom universe. I can’t promise that they will be talked about or brought up anytime soon (or at all) in any aspect of Sonic Boom, but there is nothing that prevents their possible existence. Just wanted to clear that up for you all.
So to clarify – just because the Chaos Emeralds won’t appear in the upcoming two Sonic Boom titles, doesn’t mean they won’t ever appear. I’m for this news personally since the Emeralds hold a lot of story potential aside from a climatic final battle moments, but what about you? Do you want to see the Chaos Emeralds return? Sound off in the comments below.
