    So after Sonic 4 we literally have a Genesis game for the 21st century. Looks fine to me, considering the apparent mix of new stages and remixing familiar ones. Should be a totally comfortable fit for nostalgic fans.

    The presence of Christian Whitehead, who made the superb Steam port (NOT Emulation, port) of Sonic CD, really ups the hype for me.

    So we're getting a Mega Man 9 equivalent for Sonic's 25th anniversary :sweat:?

    Well, the graphics look pretty good and it's nice having my favorite power trio together and playable in a proper Sonic game again :).

    Wow, the live-stream is a mess. Also, way too much focus on nachos, lol.

    I was expecting more than one big announcement, so I guess I'm a bit disappointing, but ah well.

    They may save an announcement for the very end. And yes, everyone was talking about the live-stream problems, especially the "buzzing" audio noises. And we all have heard enough about Totino's food. If they wanted to do something spectacular that was food related, Sega should have announced a Sonic Drive-In marketing tie-in IMO.

    It was fun seeing the voice actors, even with some microphone troubles.

    Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice trailer.

    Lego Dimensions has the Tornado and...that flying car from Adventure? And Sonic's animations look great ;).

    And of course Super Sonic would be in it :D.

    Generations 2? OK, THAT is more like it. Thank goodness, helped save the night for me.

    Here's the Youtube trailer, although it does not name it with a formal title, only "Project Sonic 2017":

    For a brief second I thought we were getting an 06 remake with that flaming city :sweat:.

    But Generations 2 is definitely something I can get excited for, and makes a lot of success on SEGA's part after the original's success :).

    Looking forward to seeing more from the game, and if the format will still be Modern and Classic going through versions of classic levels, though the story so far looks a little more serious :ack:.

    I wonder if it's too much to hope that the rest of the Sonic cast will get more screentime in this game :rolleyes2:?

    Well, technically it's a new game, but at the end of the day, it does seem like a spiritual sequel to Generations and CD. Either way, this is wicked stuff! As a Sonic fan, I couldn't stop smiling at the Project 2017 trailer. Plus we have Sonic Mania, new Sonic Dash content, Lego Dimensions, Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice soon on the way, and Sonic Boom season 2! :D:D:D:D:D

    Some pretty good announcements. Sonic Mania looks like the Sonic CD successor I've been waiting 14 years for and I'm glad that they're going back to the most successful 3-D engine.

    Sonic Mania is what Sonic 4 wishes it would be, the 3 original Sonics + CD were always the best Sonic games and seeing a real spiritual successor rather than a bland rehash put an instant smile on my face.

    I'm also looking forward to the other game but even after we get more info on it I'll more or less likely still be looking forward mostly to Mania. I need to get an Xbox One, man.

    Remember the Mega Man 9 nostalgic bad box art and NES cartridge? Sonic Mania is getting something very similar, a collectors edition, without bad box art, but instead very nostalgic Sonic 1 style box art, from this tweet on the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account. It also features a Sonic statue standing on a Model 1 version of the Sega Genesis.

    This is pretty awesome! I'm really glad a collector's edition is available, even without a physical copy of the game or a soundtrack! The items seem more than worthy for a celebration of Sonic the Hedgehog!

    Sonic Mania is coming out in Summer 2017 instead of Spring 2017 to make sure the game is great. They revealed Flying Battery Zone will return!



    Also, Project Sonic 2017 is called Sonic Forces! Sonic and friends will be the force of good and Eggman and his robots will be the force of evil as Eggman's taken over!
