Umm, yes? Amy Rose is a given, although I'm not sure about her car. It's pretty much the same car she had in the last game.

Man if Ulala doesn't get in this game I'm gonna be cheesed. She's a precious staple to these games, a fun character that really lends a lot of Dreamcast flavor.

Ulala's fine. Sega tends to favor the Dreamcast era with these games, plus she's one of the only female characters.

I'd say people like Big, The Chuchus, and (sadly) the Bonanza Bros are much more likely to be on the chopping block.

Maybe Big won't be playable, but instead hidden as an easter egg on each track.

Bonanza Bros. better stay in the game, drat it! Bonanza Bros. best bros.

Though I guess as long as Opa Opa stays, I have no complaints. Maybe we can get a Space Harrier themed stage somewhere.

I really hope we don't lose the Chuchus. I rarely played as them but their mere presence made me happy.

I wonder how big this PZ track is, there seem to be a lot of segments to it. It's been said that there's less tracks in this game than there were in the previous but they're all very large and unique. I'm all for quality over quantity.

Personally, I enjoy it as someone who watches Top Gear largely for ridiculous supercars and stupid tomfoolery. It definitely borrows from modern supercars in a way that really works.

Also, like the guy a few posts above, quite liking Shadow's car. I think it might actually be based on one of the G.U.N. robots from Sonic Adventure 2, I'll have to cross-reference.

EDIT: Yeah, its body is close enough in design that I think it's based on what Sonic Retro tells me is the 'Rhino' series of G.U.N. robots.

Apparently the stages get thematically darker as they progress in difficulty. The Golden Axe stage is closer to the end, and has some particularly nasty bits involving a volcano spewing meteors and racing on lava.

I wonder if that means there'll be stages borrowed from more mature titles like MadWorld... or Condemned.

Can't wait to see the new House of the Dead stage.

So some major announcement is apparently happening tomorrow involving this game and a celebrity of some sort.

Some say that it'll be the official reveal of the Wii U version, but considering that the Wii U version is the worst-kept secret in the world I don't think that'll be it.

Sonic's not just about attitude, he's also about style. And what's more stylish than driving a blue Koenigsegg?



gently caress go-karts, Sonic prefers the aptitude of superior European engineering with personal stylization.

Now that's way past cool.
