“Place Your Bets” with a new Sonic & the Black Knight Trailer

KniiiiiiIIIIIiiiiIIIIIiiiiight of the Wind.

In this new SatBK trailer, we get to feast our eyes on some gorgeous CG cutscenes and some intense gameplay footage.  I mean, if you’re going to do something dumb and give Sonic a sword, this is how you do it.  The cutscene clips give a glimpse as to why Sonic is in King Arthur’s court:  purple-haired Zelda Merlina, some wizard in peril, shoots a beam into the sky and calls upon…Sonic, of all people.   Then, Sonic gets a talking sword kills and anything that moves, while Crush 40 rocks out.

Now that you’ve watched the trailer, it’s time to play “Place Your Bets.”  Bet on what will happen in this game (odds are in parenthesis).

I had been talking to Jun about a month ago, and although he told me to keep it all very hush hush, he said there would be a little surprise for those in attendance; that being a live performance of the new title track for the upcoming Wii title Sonic and the Black Knight, “Knight of the Wind”.

Johnny and Jun crash onto stage with an extra long opening version of “I am…All of Me”, before burning rubber into their version of “His World” (which we all know rocks the hardest, sorry Zebrahead). Other performed tracks include the “Sonic Heroes Theme”, “What I’m Made of” and of course, the obligatory “Live and Learn” theme from SA2. Continue reading Crush 40 Rock Tokyo Game Show
