Title: Sonic Colors Ultimate, Sonic Origins & ???
Post by: TrinitroRoy on May 31, 2021, 04:07:00 PM
Surprised nobody has started talking about it yet, soooooooo...let me do the honors.


Sonic Colors Ultimate is a remaster of Sonic Colors (originally released for the Wii). It'll be released for Series X, XBONE, PS4, Nintendo Switch and EGS (sorry, no Steam version) and will contain various customization options. You can change Sonic's gloves and shoes and even his boost effect (includes a boost effect based on the Sonic movie).

Sonic Origins is a compilation of Sonic's Genesis era games, complete with widescreen support and other features/improvements. The compilation includes Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic CD (probably the Taxman versions for those), and for the first time ever in widescreen, Sonic 3 & Knuckles!


And then there's a teaser for a brand new Sonic game as well. We know nothing about it aside from the release year (2022) and that it has a weird logo...that's unless we dig into the teaser trailer's metadata!

So...what are your thoughts, guys?

Gotta correct you about something: watch the "Sonic Origins" properly, S3&K is NOT Wide-Screen. In fact, it looks badly blurred, I bet it'll be an emulator.

I hate to say this, but Sonic Colors looks awfully worse! Seriously, what's up with companies making remastered games by just making graphics just bright as hell, heck even Halo did it. Its like putting some lens flare into a woodchipper and slappin it on a piece of paper and slamming the paper into an already beautiful game and just calling it a day. I know that Sonic Colors was one of my favorite sonic games back then, it did introduced some cool mechanisms like the wisps, although not far from fancy, it kinda holds up pretty well.

BUT THIS?!

This is an official statement from Sonic's PR management.
Sonic 3 & Knuckles WILL have wide-screen. It just wasn't shown in the trailer.

I don't have much to comment on the first two.  Didn't play Colors.  Haven't felt like touching the Wii since....2010 or something.  Am slightly curious about this supposed best Sonic game of the decade contender, will likely get it.  The retro collection is the same that I've gotten, what, 5 times already before across consoles?  It's fine and expected for the ever-continuing stream of new players, but nothing special to me.

The last one give HUGE Sonic 06 vibes.  The trailer's actual direction reminds me of 06's reveal to an immense degree, albeit lacking robots chasing Sonic to show off the then shiny new graphics, 06 being the series' 15th anniversary celebration and this being that squared leaves me accepting it being tied in some way to be more plausible, and the trailer's art direction of the forest also attempting being more realistic.

Of course, that's all just assumptions.  Could be entirely unrelated.  But I would not put it past Sonic Team to want to retcon and "fix" 06 after all the years and dust have settled.

Some of the things about the new Sonic game worries me a bit. I feel some Sonic 2006 vibes aswell and that's no good.

I dunno why ya'll worry about it feeling like '06. If you'll ask me, I think that this rectification you talking about should come much, MUCH earlier, if that's going to be one, to begin with. I mean, '06 is not as bad of a game as people keep declaring it to be, and if it could rectify its mistakes and come out as a better game, I think it would be the game to truly love.

Edit: let's just hope it won't be '06 in MISTAKE regards. To forgive rectified mistakes is one thing, but to watch Sega keep repeating them - absolutely different one.

Good news: we finally know what that weird Tails life icon is about in Sonic Colors Ultimate
Bad news:

I dunno, I thought it was obvious that Tails would be nothing more than a function In this game. No need to put his icon like that and show still Sonic as a playable character if he is going to be playable. Besides, let's not forget that Sega since '06 doesn't do big Sonic games where you play NOT as Sonic (or some OC like in "Forces", which is, basically, the same Sonic, but with the weapon and some mini-skill). I think at this point even thinking this fact will change is plain useless.

Don't honestly know why people thought Tails would be playable this time around in the remaster. Hell, we were LUCKY enough to even have him as a support character this time.

Sonic 1, 2, and CD look to be the Christian Whitehead versions of the games, though I could be wrong
