If they make an Episode III it better come sooner than this one did, waiting over a year for 4 more zones is pretty shitty.

Hmm, so the description on SEGA's page says this game has 18 total stages, is it possible that the secret final zone has multiple acts? 4 zones with 4 acts (Including boss acts) is 16, then the final one would be 17 if it's a single act, maybe there are two acts this time, or a Super Sonic final battle? That'd be a nice change of pace from Episode I's terrible boss.

Considering you can beat bosses as Super Sonic this time, I'm almost inclined to believe they scrapped boss acts. If that's the case and each level has 3 acts, then we're at 12 stages if there are 4 zones, leaving another 6. That's 2 more levels right there.

Hmmm, confusion.

Yeah, that doesn't really make much sense. I mean, I'd be game for two secret zones, but it isn't like Sonic Team/SEGA than to advertise "4 Zones!" when in reality there's 5 or 6. Maybe there will be a few mini-zones ala Sky Chase? I mean, the last level is an air-craft level, I wouldn't be too surprised. I guess we'll have to see.

What if they go the Sonic CD route for boss stages? In most of those, I'm pretty sure someone can get at least 50 rings.

Hmm, that's true. Maybe the boss stages as a whole with just be bigger? The boss concept art made the first boss look pretty huge, I guess we'll see. This is the most likely route they're going.

What they've essentially done this time is make us wait 2 years for a game we don't want. I think it's best if Sonic 4 comes to an end after this.

Are you telling me that the whole "Press Y to advance to the next Act/Zone" bullshit is back?! God, I friggin hated that in Episode I!

It's probably more like, "get all the emeralds in one stright runthrough without going back and retrying."

I'd be alright with that if Sega goes that route. Then again, Generations 3DS kicked you back to the map screen after every act, so I'm guessing that's sticking around for Episode II. :(

I didn't mind, nor care about the whole pressing Y to advance to the next stage. Yeah, it's kinda dumb and it should function the exact opposite way (Press Y to go back the the map screen), but in the long run like, who cares? You press the button, then go to the next stage, I don't have a problem with it. A much better option to always being forced back to the map screen no matter what, ala Donkey Kong Country Returns and Sonic Colors.

You know, it may function the opposite way this time. Not saying that it's for sure, but neither is the E1 method.

Also, I love red rings too. They are my favorite of the 'New Classic' ideals that Generations introduced, and I'm glad they're back again for Sonic 4.

What do you mean? They were in Colors first.

Actually, they were in Secret Rings first. :v:

I wonder if we'll get to go on the rollercoaster that's in the background? - Sonic 4: Episode II's "Mine Cart"-type stage, version 2? :p *is shot*

I just noticed the Sonic side of the signpost looks a lot better this time.
