I'll repeat what I said before. The lack of actual gameplay footage is stupid, though I expected it. And I'm being stupid and letting my hopes get up again for new physics and graphics engine.

Just to squash any false hopes... Taxman already told us that the Retro Engine WON'T be used, correct?

Yes.

And stop asking about the Taxman engine. It's annoying.

Kirby works. Also, here is the Trailer without the interview since Gamespot's video player is lame:


This has nothing to do with views, I swear!

I laughed when I watched the teaser trailer because, well, it was EXACTLY what I expected the trailer to be.

And also, no Wii version = more content?

At 0:17... possible team-based attacks? It does say "With All New Surprises" right before. Maybe they're taking a Sonic Advance 3 influence, which I wouldn't be opposed to.

Well, can't say I expected anything more out of this teaser, but it's still disappointing no gameplay was shown. I'm really interested in the new physics though. I enjoyed Episode 1, but as long as they don't butcher the physics even more, a new physics engine has me interested.

And the lack of a Wii version makes me glad I got my PS3 last year. Hopefully this will be a longer game due to it.

I thought they confirmed that each episode would include 4 Zones, 3 Acts, and a Boss act for each Zone.

Tails, new physics engine, new graphics engine along with the new music soundfront(?) as well? This will be interresting, oh yes. I'll be waiting impatiently for footage. Please don't keep us hanging for 4 months now, you hear, Ken?

If they're willing to overhaul physics and graphics, I'd like to believe they'd be willing to alter the game length as well. From what we've heard from Iizuka and just from this announcement it sounds like the plan has changed a bit. If they kept it the same, can't say I wouldn't expect it, though, however disappointing as it may be.

Ah man, a new graphics engine?

I hope that doesn't damage any hopes for a 'linking' of the eps, sonic 3&k style. Lookin' good.

also I lol'd at the beard, I wonder what crazy looks he got at work with that.

I won't be giving Sega any credit until I see this thing in motion. Episode 1 was a horrible game imo, and they promised a much better product. Will save my judgement for now.

Oh joy. I wonder how the game will explain the absence of Tails in episode 1. >_> I really hope this will be a lot better than the last episodic game. Tails, new graphics and physics engine, and Sonic Generations gives me hope.

More PR crap, until a decent trailler, the game doesn't exist.

Still the lack of wii it's good news, can mean that they aren't limited to it.
