Is it possible that although they'd already contracted the developers to create this game, after the goodwill of Mania and the underperformance of Forces, they're just trying to get this game out there without damaging said goodwill too much? Thus, a lack of proper marketing? Or is this just business as usual for SEGA, who have no idea what to do with their flagship brand?


Could be but I'd hazard a guess it's just Sega being Sega. Mania was a blip on the radar in that it had good marketing whilst most other Sonic releases have been mishandled stupendously in recent years. Honestly I think the last time their marketing was on-point outside of Mania which was probably driven by passion was Generations? I mean they had the audacity to heavily infer Team Sonic Racing was connected to Sonic R in the most vacuous promise they've made in recent memory instigating false hope amongst the fans just to ignite interest a little more.

So I'm putting this down to "Sega gonna Sega". That and this game is having development troubles which could be hindering them also.

Not sure if this has been shared yet but Crunchii has uploaded an extended version of Market Street's music:

It's for the best, it looked like it could use a bit more polish

They're not doing too well with their release dates lately, uh? Fire and Ice, Mania and now this.
I'll still take this any day over something like Sonic 06, of course.

Damn, I could see a like month or two delay, but an effective five month delay? That's a huge amount of time in this case.

Why was it so hard for them to admit this? It's like the Archie evidence all over again... :colbert:

This game has no hype right now. Seven months won't completely rework the game, but it will polish it, and hopefully make a better marketing strategy. Arin Hanson apparently went to Sega of Japan for it. Maybe he's part of an oncoming hype train?

He should be one of the last people to promote a Sonic game...

Despite all the shit he gives the main line series, he seems to love the racing games.

I don't get it either, I mean, Jim Sterling was public enemy #1 for a fair stretch of time thanks to his opinion on Colours as far as I remember - why does there seem to be this attachment of Egoraptor to Sonic (social media, Grumps plays, etc) when the dude spent several episodes unfairly nitpicking at Sonic 3 & Knuckles? I mean, don't get me wrong, it's not like I give a shit either way, but the dude very clearly just doesn't like Sonic.

Honestly, I like this new SEGA policy of delaying games instead of rushing them out. As long as they use the extra time to polish up the game, make it the best it can possibly be, then fair do's.

I am so happy it got delayed. My hype has gone from, "yeah, I'll totally end up getting it," to "this might actually be worth getting right at release."

Conversely, if the game does suck, it will hit them even harder. Double edged sword.

Fanboy rage will rage. That's all that is.

If I'm gonna be as cynical as possible, we are getting Team Classic Sonic with a Mania stage. Mania is still hot so gotta chase those trends.
