The announcement is that the game is proceeding smoothly, will be released by August 26th at the very latest, and that I made a kicking rad new trailer!
As you can see there is a 2P versus mode, Circus Park from Shadow the Hedgehog with a Carnival Night throwback for classic and an intense realistic shooter gameplay style and hud for modern (complete with red jelly), and the 3rd boss reveal if you don't blink.
The trailer also shows off a couple of friends that you will be forced to rescue. After you beat a boss or both acts of a stage, that boss/stage's friend will appear outside of it. You can talk to friends by pressing the up key. They will not help you whatsoever.
Do any of you guys have fan characters? I need more of them to include aside from Sonichu, Tweaker, Shitglove the Hedgehog, and a handful of characters from the Sonic Fan Character Wiki. (Yes, that's a Thing)
And just so you have something to do, here's some teasers for a few unannounced things. See if you can guess what they are:
New Stage - 10 letters long, was hard to find terrible music for.
New Rival - As it turns out, a lot of things can possibly go wrong.
New Friend - _A_E M_ _ _ _ _
New Feature - Unlock this track for each stage by collecting every red ring.
