  1. What’s with the broken English, misspelled words, and Tails’ single-color shoes haha?

    1. If the July date listed on that storefront is accurate, that art is probably not final. I’m sure IDW has to stick to the Sonic style guide just like every other licensee.

    2. Thanks for the feedback. The shoes will be fixed. The ‘broken English’ is written in a bullet point context for the back of the box.

    3. The shoes will be fixed! Thanks for your feedback. The sentences used here were from a ‘sellsheet’ sent around to media and are written in bullet point context, hence why it may appear broken.

  2. The Battle Racers Kickstarter ended six days ago, having raised over 2.5 times the funding target.

    1. XD Yup. Jason’ ain’t not know a thing about them there kickstarty tabletop games, despite me telling him over the solid week prior every time Shinobi 7 hit the next stretch goal.

    1. I believe that ‘exclusivity’ isn’t tied to the game itself, but Gamestop offering a limited edition exclusive cover of IDW’s new Sonic comic, issue #1. You’ll only get that offer from Gamestop, but the game itself is available elsewhere.
