No homing attack?

 

God I hope not.

 

Looks good, Whitehead knows his beans.

Choo-choo (rocket)

 

Thought it was interesting this one isn't getting an NX version but the other one is, Purely timing? Looks like what Sonic 4 should have been. Too early to ask for a Dreamcast port? ;)

 

Anyway found some gameplay vids..

And so the Sonic Cycle begins anew. 

 

Nah. Whitehead engine means proper physics.

 

They've almost treated this as an indie project. Can't imagine it will have a big budget or be high risk. This will be good. For real, this time.

Whitehead chap's versions of Sonic 2 and CD aren't ports, but built from the ground up, aren't they? If so, I'm cautiously optimistic as a whole. Mind, the original bonus boss in Sonic 2 was rather shite.

The first building that Sonic runs past is from Streets of Rage . The truck that teleports you has Hornet High-Class from Daytona. This is going to be a proper love letter to old Sega gamers isn't it? And how good is the animation on Sonic? Genuine excitement for a Sonic game.

Music is going to be by Tee Lopes:

 

 

This game is ultimately a game by fans for fans. Looking and sounding ace.

 

Also: That SegaSonic Popcorn shop was a real thing:

If they fuck this up, there is truly no hope.

 

Hopefully they can keep the quality up, and the later levels don't descend into mediocrity like in the original games.

That was a really good trailer and the game looks gorgeous. Whitehead is involved too, and his remakes were fantastic. All it needs is decent level design, and it's sure to be the best Sonic game since 1994.

Why has it taken them this long to make a decent, original, HD, 2D sequel?

 

The franchise has become a laughing stop with Mario staying strong and Rayman's resurgence.

 

I loved the 2.5D levels from Generations and Racing Transformed but the rest has been tripe. 

 

Day one for me.

The most excited I've been for an upcoming Sonic game since Sonic CD. Read into that what you will.

The absolutely amazing music from the trailer can be found here:
