As I was saying I wonder if spite will force Capcom's hand into trying to make a new competitor Megaman...then again I wonder if they'd see trying to compete with a game that needs a kickstarter as a show of weakness.

As I was saying in the other thread, it makes sense as a fan to still be jaded after a few cancellations, but if you've convinced yourself that MegaMan in Smash Bros, the Comic series and even the Worlds Collide crossover are dismissable as "Not Capcom" then you've officially lost sight of the entire franchise. These things are not done behind their back, hoping they won't notice. Capcom is involving themselves in all of these projects pretty heavily and that deserves recognition.

Don't let your disappointment turn into misinformed nerdrage.

Brett corrected people who accidentally reported him saying such a vague statement as "We're working on a Mega Man game" last year http://www.rockman-corner.com/2013/03/new-mega-man-game-in-development.html

They ain't got shit in the works man and shitting out another 8-bit game at this point would just make them look laughable. Especially in a world where we've got 8 bit fan games and doujin clones coming out of every orifice these days.
>> No. 215788

You never announce a game before its at least 70% content complete. Legends 3 was the exception. They're no doubt working on something, but won't make a formal announcement until the danger of cancellation is extremely minimal.

Theres way too many of you here who think that Video Games and Comics are run by highschool drama standards. Do you have any idea how many late nights of back and forth work it takes from both a publisher and a developer just to get to the GDD stage of preproduction? You honestly believe that a studio would purposely destroy their strongest brand and lose hundreds of thousands of dollars out of something as trivial as spite? Let alone at all?

Guys. You're fans and you're upset. That makes sense. But don't pretend that Professional Game Development works the same way as a 9th Grade breakup. The real world doesn't work that way.

Can we talk about comics now?
>> No. 215790
Oh sure, Capcom of the US can make things that make COJ money all day every day The comic was a COA project at its core. With the restructuring, we're going to have to see if it survives the next licensing period

as for Smash Bros, Sakuai and Namco are doing all the work.

Capcom would never kill Street Fighter.

But such a vague statement "Hey we're working on A Mega Man game" really isn't an official game announcement and he categorically denied even something as vague as that and even forced reporters to correct it. They've got nothing man.

Square Enix is willing to let Dragon Quest die in America despite every well-advertised game in the series in the last decade selling over 1M copies. Their former CEO also made business decisions based on fortune telling.

>Theres way too many of you here who think that Video Games and Comics are run by highschool drama standards.

Have you not seen all the shit Marvel and DC have pulled the past couple years, and how writers and artists have responded to those things (hint: It's usually really catty)? Or habout all the drama that apparently happens with Penders? Or how much BS Capcom has pulled the past five-ten years? Like, it may not be High School level drama, but it's pretty damn close.

Also, as someone else pointed out, Street Fighter is their strongest series right now and they still treat people, like Yoshinori Ono, like shit. They forced the dude to continue working through a damn heart attack. They treat the people for them very badly, hence why Inafune left, and Shinji Mikami before them.

I know the Legends 3 thing was supposed to be an experiment in openly showing the gaming world at large what the process is like to get a game made, and that most games don't make it past the stage it was cancelled at, and so that's left a lot of fans really upset. I get that, so i'm not so pissed, but after Inafune left they cancelled any project that was remotely Megaman (Like Megaman Universe) and don't really have concrete plans to continue the series on their own, aside from licencing the character around.

So, maybe they haven't completely killed the franchise, but they're not going to go out of their way to do anything with it at this point.

Though Inafune is making a spiritual successor that's being Kickstarted right now (Mighty No. 9), which seems to be going well since it started yesterday and has achieved $675K of their $900K goal, and still have another thirty days. They'll also probably get most, if not all, their stretch goals.
>> No. 215803

Well, Japanese companies anyway.

But yeah there's a long history of Japanese game companies thinking only of glorious Nippon, to the obvious detriment of the overall profit. I doubt CoJ remembers that CoA exists as more than a skeleton crew on most days.
>> No. 215804

I think all the people that are saying "HOLY SHIT LOOK AT ALL THE MONEY IT'S MADE IN THE FIRST DAY" haven't watched a Kickstarter before. The first day is never indicative of what it's going to do for most of those 31 days. It'll definitely get funded but most of those stretch goals are a long ways off.

Video games are a multi-billion dollar, worldwide industry, bigger than movies, and yet most companies live or die on a single game with only a few dozen bucking this trend, either because they've bought the rest, their games print money, or they're Valve.

Hell, Fish or whatever, the creator of Fez, cancelled Fez II because he got in a pissing match with video game "journalists" on Twitter and apparently lost.

The publisher this thread is about recently went through a guy actually filing suit for ORIGINAL CHARACTERS DO NOT STEAL and may have come out on top, plus their co-Presidents just sued each other.

Yeah. I think there's a light of high school drama in both industries, mainly at the top.
>> No. 215812
>Well, Japanese companies anyway.

But it's really not. EA pulls this shit a lot, so does Activision, and like every week there's seems to be some new controversy of someone big in the game industry doing/saying something completely stupid.


Granted, that's true, but I feel like established names/companies tend to do better overall, and I wouldn't be surprised if this one meets it's first stretch goal by the end of the week with the fanbase Megaman has.

>Hell, Fish or whatever, the creator of Fez, cancelled Fez II because he got in a pissing match with video game "journalists" on Twitter and apparently lost.
That guy was not the head of a multi-million dollar business, though. Indies being volatile isn't as ridiculous as CEOs being volatile.

Honestly, though, I think the statements of these decisions being made for petty reasons are based on guesses from uninformed fans rather than any actually documented cases. Publicly traded companies seriously cannot get away with that sort of childishness because their stock holders can sue them for it.
>> No. 215817
Almost funded.

Honestly with Capcom it just feels like they dick people around. Bad Box Art Megaman would have been hilarious if they hadn't just cancelled all their projects.

Hell they propped up a fan game as their anniversary thing.

The comic has been great but the most Capcom does is hand them the license.

I'm thinking of doing an informative series to get people into the Sonic comics. I know it seems silly, what with the new 252 and all, but it might be interesting to explain to people the whole "two robotniks" thing.

Before I continue, I just want to say that yes I am Mavrickindigo. I wanted to come to you guys about this project of mine because you give it to me straight and I really appreciate that.

Anyway this is a little "test run" I did. I'm planning on doing a little series just introducing the oddities of the Archie canon to people who are outside the main fanbase of it. I was thinking of making it audio only, but please tell me what you think about what I have so far. This is a rough read, and as such isn't as fine tuned or as clean as a finished product. I made this as a sort of test to show to people to see if I'm on the right track


>> No. 215951
what I like
you seem to do your research, Eggman's original designs, and even name change from Japan to Eggman
mentioning different incarnations such as games, cartoons, and comics
mentioning other dimensions and the such
you may want to hit on alternate universes in more detail in other episodes, as they are important in some issues
metioning the robo-robotnik as well as the change from robotnik to eggman in the comics

What I dislike
there are no visuals, you don't have to picture yourself but you can use pictures in a youtube video or even video rips to show your explanation
this is not necessary but issue reference may be helpful for people wanting to read

You do have a good voice on you and this will work out for you when making the series, you may want to try and get a charisma going, though this is a trial run and you are still working on it. Overall you explain nicely and this can be a good introduction to the History of Sonic Comics by Archie to the general audience.
You may want to point out silly parts, such as the Bem in general. I mean it was only created for an excuse to turn Eggman human and later to be a non existent threat to Mobius

I don't understand your logic there. Nintendo still uses Ness and Lucas, and there probably won't be any new Mother games ever, unless you count spiritual successors like Undertale.

Merchandise is a free pass to basically print money since Capcom has to do little to no work making it, using that as a justification for them seeing the series as anything more is flimsy at best.

He left Capcom because it sucks working for Capcom. Unless that's changed, and it hasn't, then he's not coming back. That they're continuing to license Mega Man doesn't mean they're making games for him, and it doesn't mean Inafune is coming back.
>> No. 215993
If it ran on logic (which sadly, it doesn't) merchandise would only come out timed around a thing to go with it, like a game or a movie or so on.

Sakurai doesn't go to other companies to get their characters in Smash. It takes a lot from the other side to make it work, and theres a considerable amount of co-operation and asset sharing/approval to make it work. That's how games work, that's how comics work, that's how movies work.

In the case of Mega Man he did actually because of how much he was requested back when Brawl was still in production, it came up in the early interviews for Smash 4.

Snake and Sonic were pushed by their respective companies though so you're 2/3's right.
>> No. 216026
I thought Sonic was a huge "Scratch your back" thing between Nintendo and SEGA. My understanding is that the fan interest in having Sonic added to the game was so completely overwhelming that someone at Nintendo/HAL talked to someone at SegaSammy and it eventually worked its way up that SEGA would let Nintendo use Sonic in Brawl IF Nintendo would license their characters to Sega (which they did, leading to Sonic & Mario at the Olympics.)
>> No. 216038
It was sort of a complicated thing by the end, as far as I recall both companies were pushing for it but they also wanted to negotiate special terms.

You didn't hear it from me, but my dad works for Sega and he says the Master Emerald's going to be destroyed and Knuckles will be reworked as Sonic's grouchy butler. It'll be the first time we get to see Sonic's new home, so we expect readers to be very interested.
>> No. 216078
depends if this new continuity has jackasses lusting after its power.

Concerning the game continuity, I have no idea why eggman doesn't always obtain the master emerald at the start of all his schemes, its probably the one thing in the whole series which can neutralize the power of the chaos emeralds. It could be his answer to super sonic.
>> No. 216082
Didn't he pretty much try to do exactly that in Sonic Adventure 2, only for Knuckles to break the thing so he couldn't get it?

It's okay to blow up now because it is no longer keeping an ancient evil sealed inside it.

I'd imagine his thinking goes something like:

1) Found a big ass emerald on the island I just crash landed on. Tried to tap its unfathomable power. Lost my Death Egg and crashed in the ocean.

2) Shattered the thing to release Chaos. Tried to tap its unfathomable power. Lost my Egg Carrier II and crashed in the ocean.

3) Tried to steal it a third time to keep the fuzzies from ruing my plans. It got shattered, wasting my time, and plans were still ruined. (Also, prototype of unfathomable power nearly crashed us into the ocean)

Final analysis: screw it.

Not canon answer
>> No. 216099
I'd also think it's better for Eggman's health to have Knuckles only kind of mad at him for trying to take over the world than instead of flung into full blown 'zerker rage over his precious emerald being taken again.

Mega Man #29 Get I suppose

Rock wakes up in a tube filled with liquid in a wrecked Light Labs. It's revealed that it has been two weeks since the worldwide blackout and it took Doctor Light and Doctor Pedro Astil that long to develop the coating that now protects Rock from the EM wave. Unfortunately, Roll is too damaged to use the coating on her so she's stuck in a eventually fatal coma. Mega Man asks what and where he needs to go to fix this. Doctor Pedro offers the only lead they have: the powerful EM field discovered around the Lanfront Ruins. Pedro had been part of an expedition to investigate the ruins that arose from the Amazon Rainforest four years ago. It ended in tragedy when the EM field knocked out their helicopters. The unnaturally large field and "malevolent" vibe from it makes it a prime suspect for the blackout.

To support Mega Man, they revive Rush, Cut Man, Bomb Man, and Guts Man. Light reveals that before Break Man left, he gave Light the data that helped him develop the coating. The team leaves in Light's old project plane and the doctors and Plant Man stay to expand the coating to try to revive more Robot Masters.

Meanwhile, Break Man is finally able to get back to the Lanfront Ruins but is immediately attacked by Ra Moon. Before it can escalate though, a ragged Wily leads Break Man away to a safe location inside the pyramid. He explains Ra Moon's betrayal and that it hasn't made any effort to actively kill him for unknown reasons. Wily tells Break Man to stay as his bodyguard while he finishes his Ultimate Robot Master: Ra Thor. Mega Man's team arrives at the forest but their plane is quickly shot down by one of Ra Moon's patrols consisting of Flash Man, Bubble Man, Metal Man, and Heat Man. The battle is going badly against the more weapon-based Robot Masters so Mega Man concocts a plan that involves assigning the others specific targets.

Okay, so can someone explain to me why Shadow get the title of "Ultimate Lifeform"?

From what I've observed abilities wise he's got
- Doesn't age
- Immune to sickness, like the common cold or hedgehog AIDS
- Good at Chaos Control (with gem)

He's not even super fast he uses rocket boots.

What do you need explained? Gerald's point was to make something immune to the basic "flaws" of life. Shadow's body, on its own, will never wear out or succumb to degrading. He won't grow old and wither, he won't get sick and die. Gerald was hoping that once he had that going, it would help him figure out how to apply such abilities to other people (like how in X-men, Wolvering being infected by a virus killing others forced the creation of a vaccine because his healing ability eventually forced the antibodies needed to be created).

Life eventually degrades and falls apart. Gerald made a being that doesn't follow that rule. So how is that not an "ultimate lifeform?"

Interesting. I wonder if Break Man decided to help Light out of guilt over what happened to Roll.

Flatworms can do that, they aren't ultimate lifeforms.

And considering that NIDs/an infinitely large amount of horrible diseases still exist I guess Gerald Robotnik was wrong anyway... though that may be as much to do with Shadow deciding to play superhero instead of helping the world through medical advances like he was supposed to.

For a moment I misread the number and thought you were replying to Ian's post about Shadow distorting space-time and throwing lightning.

I guess it comes down to which super powers you personally value the most that constitutes the ultimate lifeform.
Some people might think eternal youth is the best, other people might think psychic abilities are the best, other people might think being the fastest thing alive makes you the ultimate lifeform. There really is no right answer.

Why the fuck can't we just have nice things. Can't SEGA just take the royalty check and increased exposure of Sonic and be hands off unless it becomes tortoise porn or something? Hopefully Ian will be able to make the SU#50 Metal the "real" Metal... but probably not because Metal Sonic can't have personality. :/

Or are they afraid of the comic becoming far superior to the games in terms of plot? Because that happened a long time ago.

In fact, SEGA should let Ian write a Sonic game.

Metal Sonic wasn't stopped from becoming a highly interesting character though? SU50 is what redeemed him, and that was after dealing with Sega.

It's pretty pedantic on Sega's part in my opinion. Not only has their own games recycled Metal Sonics like trash cans, but Shard's main name wasn't even Metal Sonic, it was Shard, so there really couldn't be any brand confusion if that's what they're worried about.

I'm not sure I would say highly interesting character. More like he became a real threat again.

I'd reserve interesting for when then finally use him for a plot deeper than "hunt down X today".

While his name wasn't Metal Sonic he was called A Metal Sonic in his first appearance. That might have been enough to turn a few heads at SEGA I guess, pretty sure every subsequent time he was called a Mecha Sonic.
>> No. 216479
They haven't recycled Metal Sonic like a trash can in the games, and they're fine with Shard as long as he's Mecha Sonic instead of Metal. They don't want Shard to be Metal Sonic. That's not so unreasonable.
>> No. 216480
I don't think the point is that Shard isn't "Metal Sonic" but that they don't want it implied that there are multiple "Metal Sonics." It doesn't have anything to do with Shard's personality.
>> No. 216482
No, it really is a silly thing for SEGA to get in a fuss over. When common-sense ends getting called reasonable ends too. But whatever, if they're satisfied with Mecha then their silly mandates boil down to three letters, nothing the readers have to care about.
>> No. 216486
It sounds like SEGA is trying to make everyone in the comic that is based on a game character to be as true to their game self as possible. If that's so, Metal Sonic can't have any personality. Also, I thought part of SU#50 was that Metal Sonic could still blow up, but it's consciousness would be transferred to the next one in line instead of a cold boot. Unless SEGA allows it to be blown up now and then, that is out, too.

Even if that were true, so what? That line of thinking is frankly ridiculous. "They did it wrong until now, they can't start doing it right!"

But it isn't true. There's ONE game where they altered Metal Sonic's persona- Heroes. Every single other appearance gives us a mute lethal robot that we're told is a big deal, even if he has a tendency to be destroyed by walls.

Metal Sonic is possibly the most coherent character of the games.

Man, I don't know.

We need to think about the franchise we're talking about here.
This is the franchise where there's been mass robot confusion for decades. "This guy is Metal Sonic, this other guy is also a Metal Sonic, but he's called Mecha Sonic. Wasn't that guy in the comics who is just robotized Sonic Mecha Sonic? No, the S3K robot is Mecha Sonic. Wait, Silver Sonic is actually Mecha Sonic in Japan!"
This is the franchise where nobody can figure out if Knuckles is supposed to be Jamaican, Australian, or who cares.
This is the franchise where there are fans who will swear by a 20 year old cartoon being the best version of the franchise ever.
This is the franchise where people hate the antagonist's "new" design that's been around for over a decade.
This is the franchise where people refuse to call the antagonist "Eggman" to this very day.

While the comic is a limited pool, it's still possible to affect the community through it. If Shard remains relevant for years to come, it could be problematic calling him "a" Metal Sonic.

Metal is probably one of the most iconic characters Sega has in the franchise. He's understood despite not saying very many words. He's a robot that exists entirely to best Sonic and he holds a nasty grudge. Even his themes spell it out for you (VS, What I'm Made of, Never Let It Go). It doesn't preclude him from being able to be part of a comedic scene or to do things that aren't sinister, but he's defined in a very solid way. They portrayed him as speaking in one game, but ever since they've flipped him back to silence and only talking in text to try and preserve his "feel" as a character.

He's the definitive robot Sonic, the one and only that comes back again and again, not a new model or a freshened up paint job. In fact, the only time we've seen another iteration of him that wasn't a crazy transformation like a rocketship or a metal dragon monster was when a robot that was built in the future and very blatantly pushed as being another robot based upon him fought him in a spin off game.
He's one of the few robots in the series marked as just being himself. He's not a series and he doesn't have a ton of copies, Metal is just Metal. This is absolutely essential to Sega marketing him, which they've been very eager to do over the last few years. He becomes more valuable by being the one and only, THE Sonic Doppelganger, THE perpetual menace. If he becomes an easily replaced line of robots you can't sell him as well. What's the point of selling someone Metal Sonic DLC, for example? If there's just as many Metal Sonics as Eggman can make you may as well just sell customers Egg Pawn DLC.

Sega won't mind you using Metal Sonic parts to create a new character, or have the core of an old Sonic doppelganger robot inside a new Sonic robot. Those are as valid as time clones and ghosts in comic books. They're separate enough to not be a big deal. The problem comes from calling them "a" Metal Sonic when that is a definitive name for a definitive character. Sonic has enough semantic problems as it is (muh mobius) and Sega has a hard enough job telling people that Metal Sonic is just one robot. They don't need more issues down the road.
>> No. 216495
B u l l s h i t.

Metal Sonic constantly doesn't speak because Metal Sonic has practically exclusively appeared as an actual CHARACTER in games where NOBODY speaks.

This "definitive" personality you guys are talking about is based of the classic series (and Sonic 4), where he flip flops between being cheeky/sonic-like (through body language) or having as much personality as any other generic sub-boss.

In the modern games Metal Sonic was an bloody alternate costume for Sonic Adventures 1 & 2, didn't even get to be part of story mode in Rivals 1 and just didn't show up in most of the other games.

So from the modern series we can only draw Metal Sonic's personalty from three games. Sonic Heroes, Sonic Rivals 2 and, ugh, Sonic Free Riders.

In Heroes he's well.... you know how he is.
In Rivals 2 he can talk in typical robot speech, is obedient to Eggman and lacks a personality until the ending when he rips a Chaos emerald out of his chest destroying himself so Shadow can warp them out of Chaotic Inferno Zone.
In Free Riders Metal can't talk at all, and was undermining Eggman the whole time.

So much for him being a consistent character.

>He's not a series and he doesn't have a ton of copies,

Metal Sonic 3.0 wasn't Eggman's. There's only one Metal Sonic. Hell, why do you think in Sonic 4 they go out of their way to have Eggman revive the robot instead of just building another one? Because they want to build him up as the legitimate rival and enforcer, instead of a mass line of robots. He's in Free Riders, Generations, Sonic 4... they've been pushing him hard lately, so it's only natural they'd be more interested in how he's portrayed in the comics. And they're pretty much right in how that portrayal should be.

Sega's still making other games, they're just focusing on Sonic more than the others because of financial troubles. He's one of the core franchises, and the one who reliably makes the biggest bank. They're not going to stop making Sonic games.
>> No. 216514
Oh, it was made by Nega Eggman, BIG difference!!

Haha, except it was still called Metal Sonic 3.0 and still made by an Eggman. Do you think the average fan even understands the difference?

In any possible way 3.0 proves this mandate dumb, not that the audience even would care if there were other Metal Sonics around (this whole conversation reminds me of Yoshi), Shard is a small time rule breaker in comparison.
>> No. 216516
>Metal Sonic has practically exclusively appeared as an actual CHARACTER in games where NOBODY speaks.
>Various spin offs
>Adventure 2 multiplayer

Heroes was his first big breakout moment in a 3D Sonic. He had a voice there. He has never vocalized since. That's not a coincidence.

>This "definitive" personality you guys are talking about is based of the classic series (and Sonic 4), where he flip flops between being cheeky/sonic-like (through body language) or having as much personality as any other generic sub-boss.
And this continues in all games and merchandising sans Heroes.
See a pattern yet?

>In Rivals 2 he can talk in typical robot speech
The dialogue early on actually indicates everything that isn't spoken by Eggman is displayed as text. It doesn't explain how, so we could assume it's a hologram or something, but that's not the point. Notice again that he never vocalizes.

>So much for him being a consistent character.
You mean about him being the cold, ruthless quiet guy who will do anything to defeat Sonic? Because the only actual contradiction there is, once again, Heroes, where he talks a lot. He's willing to betray his master if it means defeating Sonic, but aside from that he's loyal and sterile. It's pretty consistent. More consistent than Shadow, Amy, or Knuckles, anyway.

>Metal Sonic 3.0 cannot be written out of history
Did you skip
>the only time we've seen another iteration of him that wasn't a crazy transformation like a rocketship or a metal dragon monster was when a robot that was built in the future and very blatantly pushed as being another robot based upon him fought him in a spin off game
or were you just unable to understand the reference? 3.0 is explicitly NOT Metal in any way, he's a new model based on him from the far future and was only featured in one game before being dumped.

>It didn't hurt Shadows popularity any when there were questions raised about if he was the real one or just one of thousands of androids Eggman created.
It was a very unpopular development and led to one of the most hated games in the franchise. You're also confusing intentionally introducing a "AM I REAL" plot point where there are a bunch of fake versions of a character with creating multiple versions of the same character that are actually legitimate.
>> No. 216517
I'd love to see more of SEGA's properties brought back into the fold, even if it's just some sort of SEGA version of ShiftyLook for the time being.

As for Metal Sonic, you guys are leaving out the Mario & Sonic games. Yeah, you can argue whether or not they're canon, but that's not really the point; it's about how he's portrayed there as a part of the "message" he conveys as an IP in the franchise.

This is just my interpretation, but Metal Sonic there seemed singular. He seemed like Eggman's pet project, rather than a drone, at least to me.
>> No. 216522
If they can tell the difference between Nega and Eggman, they can tell the difference between 3.0 and Metal Sonic. 3.0 is just Nega's version of a Metal Sonic, but he's not one of a mass produced line of Eggman-brand Metals.

I always thought SEGA's IPs would work really well together. A lot of them can potentially take place in the same city (Streets of Rage, Jet Set Radio, Comix Zone - at least where Sketch lives, Crazy Taxi, OutRun, Afterburner and G.U.N. can mesh the same military entity), Sonic's Islands can be off coast near where Ecco's pod originates, Skies of Arcadia, Panzer Dragoon and Golden Axe can be the whole "Another Time/Another Place" deals. Vectorman is off in the future, no reason that can't fit. Space Harrier, Fantasy Zone, ToJam and Earl can all be different planets within the same galaxy (Special Stages in Sonic can be portals to the Fantasy Zone).

"Concerning the solicits: these fell under the rare occurrence where things weren't 100% nailed down before the solicits were sent in. Diamond Distributors wants the solicits way in advance. So somewhere along the way, I guess some signals got crossed.

So just a few clarifying points:
- no Aquatic Ruin Zone (the rest is on target)
- "Shadow the Hedgehog" has happened. A lot has already happened.
- The Last Story is the single most solidly canon aspect of the game, and that's what I'm working off of. I would very much like to go back and tell the comic's version of the game. There's a lot I want to get back to.
- No Black Doom
- Yes, Black Arms
- Yes, it's a Black Comet

As for the rest, I leave it to your wild speculation."

>Yes, Black Arms

So revenge is the name of the game? I suppose nothing says they couldn't make another Black Comet.
>> No. 216589
Well, it has to be A black comet, since the original one is dust.

Yes, that's what I meant. And yes, it is quite petty.

Hey guys did you know Sonic Unleashed's Japanese name was Sonic World Adventure?

Why am I bringing that up? Well here's Sonic 256's variant cover.

>Sonic Colors Happened
>the game that came out before it hasn't

Well there goes the easy way of assessing what happened and what hadn't happened.
>> No. 216642
Or maybe this is just another game-sequel, like Shadow Fall.
>> No. 216652
So this is going to be a thing?
Sonic and Tails fought the Tails doll before
now they're going to remember Sonic Unleashed as well?
>> No. 216654

Probably will keep being a thing until the new world is more straightened out.
>> No. 216657
We. Don't. Know. There are lots of possibilities. Calm your tits.
>> No. 216659
