Newer video from the HDK on Ricardo's channel, there's a download link at the video's description.

Of course It'll get all the views if it looks remotely flashy. Since when did videos get popular for the gameplay?

Damn, that OP video gets over half a million views for that? I'm going about my videos all wrong! It's not even gameplay, it's just Sonic jumping around with pretty graphics.

Yeah, you never really stop noticing that. What's really fun is reading some of the comments. I saw one on Reddit that was like, "This is the best Sonic game in 20 years!" Near the top of the thread, too.

It's as though SGDK and HDK don't exist!

For those wondering why Sonic's mouth is like that, it's because you can't pose Brawl Sonic's mouth. He has a bunch of separate face models that just go invisible for certain animations. (I'm sure there's some technical term for it, but I don't know.) It's like this for most of the characters.


The reason is the Wii can't handle morph targeting, and itd be much cheaper to hard swap between face models than accurately move facial points around with bones, which is what SEGA does for their games. This gives a similar effect and saves a lot of time, and its also what Smash 3DS does.

I don't know if this is just Megaman, but a similar system exists in Smash WiiU, even though characters like Ike visibly move their features instead of hard cutting between expressions. Perhapse its still used as an optomization when fighting, becauee seriously when are you going to be paying attention to Ike's face when you're kicking ass?

As for chosing that face, either the person found a model rigged with that expression already, or wanted to make somic edgy teh hedgy.
