Hm, I wonder if, had Archie held the licence of Sonic long and kept the Mega Man comics going, they woulda tied the Ancient Gears of Mega Drive with the Double Gear system of Mega Man 11...

Anyway, aside from getting sidetracked, I wonder what an animated series would be about. Would they go the Youtube route again like with Mania Adventures, or try mainstream media? Would they use the Classics or the Modern variants? Questions, questions...


I can't imagine we'll hear anything about it this year. If they proposed more animation directly after SMA finished, I can't imagine they've even left the preproduction stages yet. Either way, I guess we won't hear much from Tyson on here for a while :v:.

Whatever it is, I hope there's enough budget for some fight choreography. It's the only thing I felt SMA was lacking.

Slower Sonic. Could program her hammer to replace the insta-shield, maybe with modified properties. She's a hedgehog so rolling would be the same.

For her super form, she'd turn into a full 'woman' with lipstick and dressy clothing. And she'll get the Super Tails flickies but instead of attacking enemies they'll fly close to sonic's ear and whisper things Amy has said about him in private.

That last bit is the best idea of the bunch and clearly the most likely to be adopted.

Hell no! Just No.

Her hammer being an insta-shield is probably where they'll go. I'd add her spring boost (insta-shield into a spring) and a wall jump that sends her diagonal (insta-shield into a wall) allowing her to scale areas Sonic and Tails can't reach ala ninja gaiden. I don't think they'll do anything special with her Super form (assuming Iizuka lets her have one).

I was just having silly fun with the idea. But yeah that'd be my guess as well.

I'm confused what you mean by "hell no" though. All the characters have the same fundamental gameplay as Sonic but with a twist that makes their gameplay unique. Amy's hammer being a sort of launching spring or an insta-shield esque thing wouldn't change that. She'd still most likely roll and run like Sonic does, just not as fast.

From a technical standpoint, that would make her play and feel just like Sonic did in Sonic 4. Hills and slopes are designed in a way to facilitate the speed and momentum gain thus allowing a character to get through the level. If this is off, then you have to place speed boosters or (in the case of Sonic Advance) floating platforms to bypass the lack of speed. I understand wanting the "slower Amy" aspect from a canon perspective but Sonic Team themselves threw that out the window with Advance 2 & Heroes. The only compromise would be to give Amy Roller skates or something like that to supplement her lack of athleticism.


Slower acceleration + Speed cap = Sonic 4
