    Unless you heard it from an official source, then I would never believe such a thing.

    Just so you know, flying two tailed foxes (like Tails) don't actually get tired. They can fly, though.

    Well, when you think about it, it kinda makes sense. The repetitiveness in colour scheme, and Mighty is really just a recoloured Sonic with a shell instead of quills to boot. Personally, I liked Mighty, but even as a little kid when I first played Chaotix I noticed he looked like an edited/recoloured Sonic. Unless they re-did Mighty's look a mighty good bit, people nowadays would point and say "OMG! Sonic in recoloured Armadillo form!". Can't really remember WHERE I heard the bit of info to be honest, since it's been a while, but I'll look it up later.

    What do you think Shadow is? :PPP

    Again, unless this came from the mouth of Sega/SONICTEAM (or someone else "official"), then I'm not buying it. I like to avoid rumors/theory, thanks.

    That's not a full sentance, it's incorrect to use a period. (j/k)

    IIRC (lot's of IIRC on this thread, huh?), Sega owns the rights to all characters, music, etc. Used in their games. Not specific people, not even specific teams. Sega has used Sonic for many things without the creator's consent. This is also why Sega can keep rehashing Sonic 3 even if it (theoretically) uses MJ's music.

    Not using Mighty or Ray would just be decisions of developers.

    edit: I mispelled "huh."

    That wouldn't make much sense, if you think about it: Shadow was probably designed around the year 2000. Last time we had (and have) heard of Mighty was in 1996, which had been four years ago back then. That's too much of a gap, it doesn't provide an explanation to why Mighty didn't appear in games like Sonic the Fighters and Sonic R. A much better explanation would be that the character design was just not appealing enough, as he looked just too much like Sonic. Now, before you start giving me "OMGBUTSAHDOWISTEHRECOLROEDSONCIWTF", remember: this is 1996. Back when the Sonic games weren't directed at 4 year-olds who just want more Sonic look-alikes, it was directed at a much broader age span. T'was the time when they actually cared about the fans. Besides, his previous (and debutting, for that matter) game had come out in 1992*, four years ago, it's not like he was THAT popular of a character. Ray's case was even worst, he didn't go past his debut.

    *As for the release date of Segasonic the Hedgehog, I was under the impression that the prototype was released in the States in 1992, and that the finished version only came out in June 1993 in Japan. I'm just speculating, however.

    Welp, this.
    By that same token of logic, why didn't we see Vector or Charmy in either of those games? I'd guess it's more valid to say that when Heroes was being developed, it came down to Mighty vs. Vector, in terms of power characters, and a crocodile versus what looks like the lovechild of Sonic and Knuckles...well.

    This is also how I've understood it—in fact, all the release dates I can find are pretty much across the board in saying that SSA came out in 1993.
     
  8. I believe it was developed in 1992, but actually released in 1993. Then again, why would the © say 1992?

    I'm not stupid.

    I was just trying to point out, we are not stupid. We all already know that they do exist. Who doesn't?
     
  10. Christ, do you think we're all retarded or something? We know flying squirrels exist, and we know they actually just glide. We're talking about a video game, dumbass. Rika Chou's point was exactly that, not that we thought flying squirrels were as realistic as Tails.

    As for the whole deal with Mighty, who knows? None of the Chaotix came back until Heroes, we could have been talking about all of them up until then, not just Mighty. And we still haven't seen Heavy and Bomb again, don't forget. The reason Mighty wasn't in Team Chaotix, I assume, is simply because Vector is bigger, and having a character called "Mighty" in anything other than strength position would be stupid.

    For all we know, SEGA's planning another strange hat-trick like they did with Vector, Charmy and Espio for a future game with Mighty, Heavy and Bomb. And about mighty looking too much like Sonic, he actually looks nothing like him except in Chaotix when he's built off Sonic's sprites. Especially after he gets a SA-style redesign, nobody will look at him and go "edited Sonic lol."

  14. Amen to that.

    I was actually referring to the fact he doent fly in the game so why is he different from any other squirrel?

    Also still cant find where I read that, when was the REV A of the game made anyone know?

    Also (again) wasn't mighty made before sonic or have I got that wrong as well?

    OFF TOPIC! anyone know how to get futher than the ice level without it crashing?

    Mighty versus Vector? Why would it be by that logic? In Knuckles Chaotix, Mighty was the fastest character in the game, so wouldn't it come down to Mighty and Espio?
