If his legs didn't look so weird i'd think knuckles design would be pretty much perfect. The design i don't really like is amy's, the rest look ok.

So how about Sonic's blue arms?

Power type should mean he looks strong on his own, not requiring silly looking lanky legs and a goofy puffed out chest. Like, man, he even has FINGERS now, the Knuckles is gone :P

It's a cartoon, it's supposed to have a bit of goofy in there. :P
Can't expect everything to make sense.

COME ON, AND CUT LOOSE, MAN
DON'T BE SUCH A SQUARE

Why the shit does Tails have bandages on his shoes.

Yeah, the only thing that's weird about these designs is the abundance of bandages.

Like, yeah, they're walking around in desert/forest areas a lot from what we've seen, so it hints at a large amount of exploration.
But still, that's a lotta bandages.

I still adore the designs though

I will be the consistent biggest square. Knuckles with fingers just looks...odd to me, and it's probably just me being used to him just having spiked things that knock things apart. New Sonic and everyone else are fine, although I am curious, not angry, but curious, about Sonic's blue arms despite Amy's being skin colored. I guess that's just selectivity. Huh.

But are there truly grown men in this world?!

I mean there's not really any work-around for "your character has no fingers" other than "give him fingers". How does he even hold things with his mitt-hands? But I'm liking things so far...except Bangarang...I don't know who their target audience was there...

From what I see, this game actually looks like it'll be quite interesting.
My biggest and most obvious complaint is Hulk's Knuckle's body mass, holy shit.

I love how people are exaggerating Knuckle's new build. Way to sensationalize.

Knuckles has a substantially different body type than he normally does. Of course people are gonna react to it like that.

Fuck man, why can't we get a new Jet Set Radio instead of more Sonic...?
Because it's guaranteed to sell? C'mon.

I mean fuck I want a new JSR game as much as anyone (I need more Hideki Naganuma tracks, where did that guy run off to?), but this is Sega we're talking about. Outside of a re-release of Future I don't see much chance of it happening.

Why the shit does Tails have bandages on his shoes.
His shoes got an owwie.

He has a linebacker build at the very least not the roid-rage hulk people seem to filter their eyes out when they see him.

Or maybe because I stare at huge guys on almost a daily basis that I find Knuckles normal by comparison.

The only real problem I have with Knuckles' design here is that they bulked up the rest of his body but left his big giant "Sonic character" head the same size, so now his head looks oddly tiny in comparison.

Actually, yeah! Where the hell IS Naganuma?

And I feel like knuckles' new build is probably what he should have looked like from the beginning. IIRC knuckles is the oldest of the main characters, and since everybody is a little older it makes sense that he's bigger sorta? Iunno.
I just hope that they don't butcher what few "character traits" the main cast had...actually they can get rid of those too for the most part. (I like gullible knuckles tho)
also, holy fuck the cartoon is well written.

But they didn't. Only his arms and upper torso are huge, his hips and legs are the same size as everyone's else.

That design wouldn't look so weird is Knuckles had slightly bigger (or wider, whatever) core and legs.

Actually, yeah! Where the hell IS Naganuma?

He did some really rad tunes for Ollie King, two of which were JSRF Remixes. If you dig his music, he did a Gintama anime opening and some Beatmania stuff.
But yeah. I'd kill to see his work in a new JSR game.


I'm also really really diggin' these new designs, but they're doing with bandages what Kingdom Hearts did with zippers on clothing. They've decided to slap them on every character.

I was reading that the scarf and bandages and other character designs are western-themed because the game and show are both being developed in America this time around.

the bandages look stupid as shit. knuckles is a bit too big but he should be bigger than the rest. this at least is better than having all 4 characters with the same build

To me, it seems they're going the Valve route with the designs. Not bandages, mind you, but at a sillouted distance, you can tell them apart and what they'll do.

I think I've seen the complaints so far, IRL and online, and this is just my opinion:

Petty Complaints:
Sonic's legs are longer
Sonic's Arms are Blue
Tail's headphones are on the side of his head (Like a normal person) and not logically over his ears
Tail's Shoes are wrapped
Knuckle's... well.. knuckles, are wrapped up with bandages
Knukles now has more fingers (This really isn't that massive of a design choice)

Legit Complaints:
Departure of Cartoony/Cartoonish Design to appeal to a younger audience
Knuckles' redesign is far too drastic from his traditional
Sonic's body looked very ugly in that "Ready to fight" position (See DC's Mr Elestic)
The sports wraps or bandages all over the place is a bad design
Dubstep was used in the traaaiiiler (This is a petty complaint, but I find it legit since it reflects the entire soundtrack AND whether or not it's good music, it was poorly used in this case)

Trying to be effecient these days, aren't I?

To be frank, I'd say this is a departure from Micheal Jackson's design to something more... and you can hate me for this ...Disney. This game looks like a Disney cartoon that's getting a liscenced game, rather than the other way around. Seeing how dark the game is in that trailer gave me images of the newer Ninja Turtles that looks like they're in Cardboard Boxes.

Dubstep started being overused in trailers ever since it became famous. Lost Worlds trailer used them despite the soundtrack being mostly jazzy composed by Tomoya Ohtani. It had virtually no dubstep.

Also the look is still cartoonish. They just don't look as cute.
