    So, if this is real (and yes I'm going to keep saying "if" until this is dumped), how the hell did this fly under our radar for the last 20 years?! I've been in this community for a good while now and never in my times with Sonic CulT or anywhere else have I heard of a Multi-Colored Sonic Arcade game even in rumor.

    Did we just brush it off because they were just talks in magazines? if so, what else are we brushing off? what else is now out there? should we go back into magazine history now and double check all mentions of unknown Sonic games?!

    Rather funny that we could very well be getting a lost Sonic arcade game before even getting Cosmo Fighter, still hope that gets found and dumped soon..
    Looking forward to what this game has to offer, as another has already stated, really hoping for a 2D game, and not just end up being Sonic 1 with multiplayer.

    That's G.Silver who posted that scan, who also posted it on the GHZ thread I referenced in my first post. It's gone full circle!

    :v:

    Very much looking forward to this; it's been a good while now since we had anything prototype-related, and unreleased like this especially so. That said, as others have put, let's leave him to get this done in their own time. Pushing them at all could just end up pushing them away.

    I just went from mildly interested to extremely interested.

    Changed the thread title cause now it's pretty clear that it wasn't a prototype of SegaSonic the Hedgehog, but rather a cancelled game.

    Welp, that's too fucking good.
    I'm going to call them that from now on even if we ever were to find out that they had official names.

    I have to wonder that even if this is an entirely separate game, the colored Sonic trio idea did eventually morph into the released SegaSonic characters. The fact that Mighty is SO similar to Sonic and the fact that the colors match up... it makes you wonder.

    This is interesting. I'm wondering now if this is some kind of puzzle game?

    I would be surprised if elements of this game didn't end up in SEGASonic Arcade. I can't wait to see more of this. Thinkin' that 2016 is going to be an exciting time to be a Sonic fan!
     
  14. I hope it's not! Would be gutted if it's just a simple puzzler.

    IT'S CANON NOW, NO TAKE-BACKSIES.

    Sounds like a puzzle game. Echoing others, I hope it's more.

    Hopefully it is something else, or at least has some relevance other than a copy of Puyo or anything else. Though, 3 colors, and 2 player mode? Confusing.
     
  17. I love it.

    Calling it now, it's Puzzle Bobble/Bust-a-Move, with Sonics spinning instead of orbs.

    What if it's literally just a clone of the original arcade Mario Bros, but with Sonic instead? (though I'm not sure why you'd have 3 characters instead of two...) That would also explain why Sega nope'd out of it.

    That said, it's pointless speculating when we'll be able to see soon enough =P

    The can of worms is open and bad speculation's gonna flood in. Let's remember we've got NOTHING to go on right now guys.

    That said, Fukio didn't work on too much. Looks like Bubble Bobble and scrolling shooters. Maybe he was trying to branch out? But then why would Sega hit him up to design a Sonic platformer if he never worked on platformer? Watch this be a puzzle game. :(

    My dream is for this to be a Bubble Bobble/Rainbow Islands style game starring Sonic, but I might be setting myself up for disappointment. Either way this is pretty exciting.
