  1. What fans want: open world Sonic with next gen graphics, dramatic CGI cutscenes and levels which take longer than 90 seconds to complete.

    What we will actually get: Sonic Team Football Manager

  2. Oh no, I bet it’s sonic the hedgehog live action, noooo. Don’t you dare release a live action sonic game, please I’m begging you.

    1. They probably won’t though, SEGA hates the movie, Iizuka hates the movie doubt he’d wanna do a game on it

  3. Longer levels would be nice but it would certainly help if the layout wasn’t just a straight line.

    I dunno, maybe make the other characters playable again? Like, even if it’s boost gameplay, the fans don’t care about accuracy as long as it’s fun!

  4. I’m as hopeful as always with this series in all honesty. Got a bit burnt out with the way Forces went but I genuinely believe Sonic Team are capable of making another well executed project. It’s been a year I guess and they’ve had some time to think about their next step so assuming they’ve just started production, I’m willing to give this a chance.
