LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (May 26th, 2010) SEGA ® Europe Ltd. & SEGA ® America, Inc. today announced Sonic ™ Colours, the new high-speed adventure of our famous hero Sonic the Hedgehog. Struggling with saving a colorful alien race fall into the clutches of Dr. Eggman, Sonic will face many obstacles along an inspired sci-fi themed amusement park. Sonic Colours will be available on Wii ™ and Nintendo DS ™ at the end of 2010.

    A unique playground has been seen orbiting the planet of Sonic the Hedgehog. Some rumors speak of an alien race called wisps, with a rare colored energy, which is now imprisoned here, by the evil Dr. Eggman. Sonic, once arrived on the planet’s entertainment, you can use immediately made aware of this rare power to help colored wisps in the escape! The Wii version of Sonic Colours combines both 2D and 3D gaming perspective, while the Nintendo DS version takes advantage of the characteristics of the double-screen console.

    “The lively alien universe of Sonic Colours allows players to race at breakneck speed along amazing planets, each with its peculiarities and unique visual style.” Comment on Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing SEGA. “In addition to classic Sonic gameplay, new power-wisps, they offer an innovative way to explore these new worlds and help Sonic to run faster than ever!”

    The new Sonic hedgehog Colours see our dear speeding, jumping off himself among enemies like never before in a Sonic game. The aliens WISPs are able to free their “Colour Power” that can be absorbed by Sonic drilling to create new roads, for example, the ground (via the Yellow Drill), or go through the whole internship at supersonic speed (thanks to Cyan Laser). Combining the different available energies can further increase the speed of Sonic and his abilities beyond imagination. Lots of power ups and exclusive versions will be available for Wii and Nintendo DS for a brand new super-fast gameplay of Sonic for fans around the world.

Sonic Colours will be available on Wii ™ and Nintendo DS ™ at the end of 2010.

Unless a good team like Sumo Digital or Dimps is handling it, this will undoubtly be absolute [parasitic bomb].

...now for some good news, the Sega Europe blog says this in the same post:

We look forward to your future visit and to providing you with more information on this exciting new development.

Yours Sincerely,

Dr. Ivo “Eggma  ArtsrangleUK… or whatever his name is.

The simple appearance of Eggman's western name in an official Sega website just makes my fan glands give a little sigh of happiness.

You know, if this was ANY other character besides Sonic (and maybe Spyro and Crash, they're [tornado fang]'d beyond all recognition), I'd really, really like this idea. "Colors" is actually a fun subtitle, and it has potencial for it to be a less serious Sonic title, with its own gameplay and mechanics which might actually be good. But knowing how Sonic games turn out, I'm scared.

No better than "Riders" or Mario's own "Super Mario 64" to say the least (A good reason too, because half of the game library has 64 freaking everywhere).

As long as there's no demon involved (aka. mr. seriousnesslol) I'm good, you know how many times THAT happened.

... and appear to be less annoying than Cream, Chip, and Marine combined.

So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

You seem to be putting Mario 64 in the same standard as Sonic Riders.

Generic names, ususally it happens to most games, those two are examples. They are two good games, but with generic subtitles (one's a number and the other states the obvious).

People still can't get over what happened in '06, it's too funny.  XD

I'll just say this:

if this game doesn't do anything related to the notion of claiming a "return to his roots" or any of that same language that we've heard for years on end, it's already got the benefit of being allowed to develop as its own thing, for good or ill.

Everything relating to the "Sonic Cycle", even including the various Sonic 4-related events ("announcement" and now "the delay"), has always been things that developed as a result of Sega promising a return to his roots, which then falls flat on its face because the game later proves its everything BUT a return to his roots.  8D

Far as I'm concerned, they can go ahead and make another friggin' SHADOW THE HEDGEHOG game if that's what they really want. As long as they are upfront with the notion of how this series will never go back to what it was up to 1994, I don't give a [parasitic bomb]! Maybe they'll go forth to actually create some new Sonic games that may end up being good some day, but they really need to abandon the notion of "returning to his roots". Sonic 4 proves that they don't know jack-[parasitic bomb] when it comes to that, and that ship has already sailed more than a decade ago.

Your attitude basically shows what many other Sonic Fans are: A bunch of whiners. Is it a necessity for you to whine when there are no screenshots of gameplay or gameplay DEMONSTRATIONS are in plain sight?

Question: Would you dance for a ZOE game, even if it's crappy?

I used to know a decent sonic fan before I met the more "lolwhiny" fans that outnumbered them.

One of those aliens is going to have the most annoying voice ever. Period.

Seems like an innovative idea. I just hope it doesn't end up as SEGA cranking out more mediocrity.

Sonic fans ARE whiny, but for God's sake, they're entitled to be. Their franchise has seen very few good games in nearly ten years. All they want are good games. And seeing the track record and elements of cute cuddly creatures of different colors, this doesn't seem like one. You can't blame them. The ones that are whining about getting good games and not about shitty things like green eyes and wanting voice actors back, that is.

So it's like saying that 3D Blast was actually bad? sure it felt clunky at times, but it still had gameplay. It's being able to play a SONIC game rather than moaning over pointless things like STORY and such.

Naughty, naughty PB, for bringing that up again.  :P

I actually love 3D Blast for some reason. Don't see what's so bad about it except for an escape from the original norm. No, I mean bad as in every single game from Sonic Heroes onward. I remember when Sonic Heroes was considered a BAD game. Now by Sonic standards, it's GOOD. What the hell happened?

(and yes, I know, Rush and Advance weren't that bad, and Secret Rings had a FEW good parts. Still no good.)

With all due respect, what has Sega done, on their part, to warrant any other kind of response from guys like? Their games from the last 15 years' worth of time have ranged from average to mediocre to outright terrible. It's not a problem that's emerged since the DC era of games, it's been one that's been prevalent since the days of Sonic 3D Blast and Sonic Labyrinth. And this modern day era, where they loved to have the tagline of "return to his roots", has done nothing to alleviate a long-standing issue that hasn't been adequately addressed since 1996.

As an old die-hard of Sega and Sonic alike, I WANT them to do well, and I would like to see quality releases. But I can't want any more than what they want for themselves. If Sega's happy with the notion that Sonic's basically a few points shy of being as relevant as the likes of Bubsy the Bobcat and Crash Bandicoot, then fine. I haven't bought a Sonic game since Sonic Rush (which I ended up hating beyond the OST), and that standpoint will not change any time soon, unless this issue is addressed.

Question: Would you dance for a ZOE game, even if it's crappy?

HELL NO. 8D

Perhaps you haven't been keeping up with some of my recent movements here, GAF or the like. But don't get it twisted: the basic thing to take away is that it doesn't matter if I had a long-standing love for a certain game series, if an entrant goes forth to not deliver on the promise of its predecessors, then it too, is liable for the same type of treatment from me.

Cases in point:

* DMC4 - Strongly dislike this game, because it does a lot to drop the ball compared to DMC3 and especially DMC1. For the love of all that's good, I hope that Ninja Theory + DMC5 rumor is false, or it will effectively do a lot to make the franchise dead to me for good.

* KOFXII - Dunno what the hell happened here with its busted game mechanics and bare-bones content; thankfully, KOFXIII seems to be more or less what SNK wanted to make in the first place. So, ideally, XIII stands to make up for XII and that HORRID Samurai Shodown Edge of Destiny, if all goes well!  owob

* Star Fox - This series is tragically teetering on the same edge Sonic was on a few years ago. And like Sonic, a number of the same ills apply: lack of decent games that do not honor what people want most ("moar SF64"). Command's touch screen control scheme was enough to make me pass that game up entirely. Frankly, I'm hoping that Nintendo will have the heart to keep Fox grounded ntil the day they're ready to let him fly again....(ideally, with EAD at the helm)


So no, it's not just Sonic; I've got "grievances" to go for days. And I think that's fair to have, considering that I DO care, and even more so, I have spent money on products that are marketed. If these were just "labors of love" that Sega, Nintendo and the rest of 'em were putting out on the goodness of their hearts, maybe I'd have a different opinion. 8D
