Maybe there will be more classic western sonic stuff put in aside from Chilli dogs. Maybe Robotnik will call Orbot and Cubot Dumbots.

This but unironically, and beating Spinball 2 unlocks the original Veg-O-Fortress for a complete remake of Spinball 1 in the Spinball 2 engine. Hit me up SEGA, I'm ready to print you the money.

The president from SA2, playable in Sonic Forces Speed Battle.

I have nothing else to say.

It could be the Boom initiative except done right.

I hated Sonic Boom and its lazy self-aware boring hipster sensibilities but I do think it came from Sega of America earnestly wanting to make the Sonic Brand great (and profitable) again. That work was sabotaged by Sega of Japan and their three game deal with Nintendo (who themselves clearly regret the deal seeing as how Lost World is on Steam unlike say Bayonetta 2). Not going to pretend SoA are a mirror of excellence but I am willing to give them another shot. The only thing SoJ will give us is another Sonic Forces anyway.

Bayonetta 2 contains lots of Nintendo properties and references and it was largely funded by Nintendo after SEGA dropped the project. Lost World is just a SEGA game that was designed for the Nintendo audience, but has no specific ties outside of two bits of product placement crossover DLC.

Those would just be cut out in a Steam release much like how the additional Nintendo references added to Bayonetta 1 are absent from the steam version. When asked on whether or not Bayonetta 2 would be ported to Steam, Kamiya simply responded to "ask Nintendo" which makes sense as Nintendo published the game. A similar situation to Devil's Third which was published by Nintendo but later got a modified PC port when Nintendo decided the game wasn't worth holding onto. Sonic Lost World simply wasn't worth it to Nintendo (who shared publishing duties in some regions).

So apparently the Sakura Wars team got folded into Sonic Team and now ST is developing Shin Sakura Taisen.

All of this (Live Movie included) really makes me wonder what may be the future of the Sonic franchise...
