After watching this trailer, I feel excited about Sonic The Hedgehog in a very long time. The recent games were shit (Sonic Unleashed onwards, except for Sonic Generations and I never played the Nintendo Wii and Wii U games and some may say that was a good thing) but this may look like it might be the revival the franchise so desperately needs. By going back to the beginning and doing it in genuine Mega Drive 16 bit graphics rather than doing it in psuedo-2D graphics or in a 2.5D perspective makes it all the more exciting for me and also shows that they remained respectful to the era.
A YouTube commenter said this is what Sonic 4 should have looked like and he was right. Hopefully, this could be beginning of a whole new chapter and I’m hoping that Knuckles has been reverted back to his original and is no longer a big dumb brainless beefcake. Still though I guess some things won’t change, like Dr. Robotnik reverted back to his original design and his name changed back to Robotnik, Eggman sounds dumb.
And just for laughs, here is a video of me playing Sonic 2 on the Sega Mega Drive.
