now this is what i'd call sonic 4
that hot mess they called sonic 4 from near 6 years ago is now sonic 4 only in name

if this isn't a good sign that tax/stealth are destined to make sonic great again, then heaven knows what is

Something tells me they're getting more than a cameo this time. (https://mobile.twitter.com/CFWhitehead/status/791384002280108033)

i like how the revamped roller badniks actually have physics and use the CD/chaotix jump sound in contrast to sonic/tails/knux using the original jump sound

Recently, an alleged release date of Sonic Mania has been leaked.

Yep, that release date is official.

Also, Stardust Speedway confirmed. Looks like they've decided to go with the Past version of the stage in order to stay region-neutral in terms of the soundtrack.

how is this not an ascended fangame at this point?
as if we needed even further proof that ascended sonic sceners care about sonic more than sega and sonic team themselves

enough overwhelming success and it might just knock sega and sonic team back to the early 90s and finally begin to take shit seriously again

maybe act 2 and 3 are the present and one of the futures (bad future possibly because i bet sega's doing all they can to shoehorn a metal sonic boss battle in there somehow)
region-neutrality is moot at this point because sonic CD original isn't given a damn anymore unless "sonic boom", tidal tempest present, and the boss theme are involved, and sonic CD retro used the JPN soundtrack globally anyway
sonic 4 ep2 used stardust speedway BF JPN for the metal sonic fight
etc...

I meant "region neutral" in the sense that people wouldn't be able to complain about one soundtrack being chosen over the other, since the Past songs were always the same, regardless of the soundtrack. Then again, this is the Sonic fanbase we're talking about, here, so I guess you can never be too sure on that one.

Anyway, the Sonic 2 stage has been confirmed.

Now all that's left to be revealed (as far as reimagined Zones are concerned) is the Sonic 3 stage. I get the feeling that it's Ice Cap...that is, if they managed to work out any potential legal issues (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2OWC5Hosv8) surrounding it.

Post by: Yerix on Jun 09 2017, 11:49 PM
sonic 1, sonic 2, s&k and sonic CD have representation
next would either be chaotix, or a sonic 3 level without any jacko/buxer red tape on the music (angel island, hydrocity, and marble garden are probably the best guesses as their music wasn't replaced in sonic and knuckles collection, generations already did sky sanctuary, though it could be done again merely because mania did CPZ again)

or fuck everything and we get an 8-bit sonic level, my money would be on STT's sunset park since fans seem to gasm on that

Finally, a player who didn't suck against the Death Egg Robot.

That aside, I think that's a bit of an odd choice for a first boss, but I'm not complaining.

old-school articulated bosses jointed with multiple sprites are hardcore, and robotnik sure isn't going to drag out that stupid wrecking ball again

hopefully the other bosses are about treasure level

i like the sonic CD JPN inspired soundtrack as much as the next guy, but it wouldn't hurt if they added "genesis" versions of the soundtrack for that extra nostalgia kick, perhaps as DLC or some mess

stardust speedway present confirmed as act 2

metal sonic confirmed
in phase 1 he attaches to a machine that produces 8-bit mecha sonics (or "silver sonic" as most call it outside japan)
there's also a 32-bit styled 3D model of a robotnik tower in the background

hydrocity confirmed
sonic 2 8-bit bubbles confirmed

mirage saloon act 1 is a sky chase type zone

a reminder that it took sega 21 years since their last game and the help of ascended fanboys to use them again in a sonic game...even if they are just depicted as illusions here

this ascended fangame uses sounds from the genesis sonic trilogy, CD, spinball, chaotix, mean bean machine, and even chaos/triple trouble

but they forgot spinball's best sound effect : scorpius' "YNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENG" screech when it gets hit

No Sonic Spinball reference is complete without the SCREEEEEEEEEE and the 50 floppy drives play constipated Optimus Prime tesla coil soundtrack.

PC version got buttraped hard

sega snuck in denuvo DRM and made it require an internet connection to even play it

on the other hand, the PC version has a dedicated button for going super that'll eventually make it to the console versions

sonic hackers going at a game that at least one of their own was involved in?

so a fanartist's misinterpretation of robotnik's cockpit in the FBZ spider boss led to the creation of a fanchar that's making waves in the sonic fanbase
