Ever since it got revealed at the end of the Sonic Central broadcast, the mysterious 3D Sonic title has made a lot of people curious. And now a rumor involving a user’s account of the game is also getting people excited.
Before we get to that, let me provide a little context. It has been discovered by dataminers that the mysterious 3D Sonic title is apparently called Sonic Rangers, or at least its code name is called that, and that Marza animated the teaser trailer.
Not long after that, it had been discovered that a person had posted an account of a demo they played of the game. Now, at first glance, this may come across as your average untrustworthy rumor. But you may be surprised to learn that they mentioned the Sonic Rangers name in January, and they even managed to accurately describe things that had been teased in the trailer, including the “spincycle” ability and “cyberspace” hints.
This same post mentions that the game is an open-world title that is “populated with small enemies, puzzles and platforming challenges”. Dealing with those obstacles “rewards EXP which can be redeemed in a skill tree”. The skill tree unlocks abilities, such as the “spincycle” one previously mentioned.
The main goal is to defeat bosses spread throughout the open world. You get orbs for defeating them, and enough orbs enable you to enter “cyberspace” to play Generations-style levels that, when completed, gets you a Chaos Emerald. Collecting all the emeralds will be necessary if you want to complete the game’s story.
Obviously, this is a rumor, so take these with a grain of salt. But the post and reveal trailer have been surprisingly in-sync so far, despite the former appearing in January. Time ill tell if the rumor is true, but if it is, then this is quite a Sonic game that could be on the way.
