  1. Finally some news!! Can’t wait for it, here are my predictions about the reveals:

    -Sonic Mania release date and new stages shown.
    -Sonic Project 2017 final title reveal + information about gameplay or new playable character.
    -Sonic Movie release date and brief synopsis.

  2. Finally some news on this. I can’t handle this dry spell it’s been so long since we’ve got any big news on these games. Which I’m excited for cause if sega and sonic team are being careful for not leaking or spilling any news this has to be good.

  3. Such excitement, much hype. This is the dream time of Sonic people right here…minus one beloved Yuji Naka. Can’t wait to see what will wreck my wallet this year. X)

  4. Finally the news Sonic fans actually care about…. and its not advertised on thier social media because.. its not a meme?
    Eh, as long as the presentation has no boom crap trashing it up will be a good watch.

    1. They usually advertise panels and such a few days before it happens and on the day it happens. Y’all need to stop getting salty over the memes and stuff they post. They’re having fun and actually interacting with us. Would you rather all the news we’ve been getting still happen when they’ve had, but instead they never said anything else and post promotional ads for toys like other social media accounts for other companies. Lighten up a bit will ya?

  5. To me that ‘Gotta Go Fast’ title would have been a really cool ref to 4Kids Sonic X around 05-09, but now it is just a stupid meme sadly.

  6. I’m interest to see Sonic Mania & Sonic Project 2017 on Xbox One PS4 accept don’t forget Nintendo Switch first two Sonic games are coming this console I wonder how it present to us in SXSW 2017 two Sonic games this year to last year?
