SEGA Announces Sonic Boom: New Game, TV Show and Toys

SEGA has announced Sonic Boom, a fresh branch of the Sonic universe that includes a video game, toys and a new CG animated television series.

Sonic Boom will introduce redesigned versions of the popular hedgehog and his companions. To get your first glimpse at their new looks, check out the debut trailer for the Sonic Boom video game below, coming exclusively to Wii U and 3DS.

Starring Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy Rose, the Sonic Boom game will serve as a prequel to the TV series and will focus on collaborative gameplay. The third title in the exclusive Nintendo-Sega partnership following Sonic: Lost World and Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, it'll feature all the speed you'd expect from a Sonic game, alongside elements of exploration, combat and "a new Enerbeam tether mechanic".

The TV series will debut on Cartoon Network during the 2014/2015 season and will be made up of 52 episodes, each 11 minutes long. As you'd expect, a range of accompanying toys and merchandise will be produced featuring the new-look characters.

And to compare, I've used the same PS3 controller ever since I bought my PS3. But the PS4 controller.....it worries me.


I don't have any such problem. :?

EA are really trying their hardest to secure the worst company award again:

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/xbox-o ... 0-6417555/

Xbox One, PS4, and PC not getting FIFA World Cup game, devs explain why [UPDATE]
2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil launches April 15. No Xbox One, PS4 or PC versions in development, but next-gen consoles will get a "range of World Cup content and tournaments" within Ultimate Team.

EA Sports will release the official game of the 2014 FIFA World Cup for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on April 15. There are no PC, Xbox One, or PlayStation 4 versions of the game in development.

When questioned about the lack of Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions, producer Matthew Prior told GameSpot that due to the international appeal of the game, they expect the vast majority of fans to be playing on current-gen systems. Emerging markets, such as host nation Brazil, had prohibitively low next-gen adoption rates.


According to statistics the PS2 is the most popular console in Brazil to this day. Weak reasoning.

I think the last Sonic game that I played and enjoyed was... Sonic Adventure on the Dreamcast. That one had some weird moments like when you were running around a city of humans doing quests but when it got fast it was awesome.

Actually, Sonic Adventure might be the only Sonic game I've enjoyed. The first two were kind of fun but were mostly a chore to play. :lol:

I heard the 2D Sonic games on the GBA and DS were fun. I've played Sonic Adventure 1 and 2; the latter being better than the former. One thing it thankfully didn't have were the fishing stages. :smt090

Sonic Generations is really good. It's the only Sonic game I've liked since the 16-bit era.

Anyone excited about this Evolve game? I'm personally super stoked.

I wonder though how often you'll run into a noob monster.
My indie comic is finally released, you can check it out here.

That was a really novel idea from Sega but it never really took off. The battery in mine died real early on and I never bothered to replace it so I didn't get to play that game much :lol:

It's pretty much a total ripoff of Tempest 2000 on the Atari Jaguar, too!



Well, okay, I kid. It's made by the same people, so technically it's not a ripoff. :P
