    Because I can laugh my lungs out with whatever ideas you'll come up with.
    A Bubble Bobble with Sonic as orbs... LOL
    Wait, wait... Bubble Bobble or Puzzle Bobble?

    The vs. play option only had a picture of two Sonics. Obviously SegaSonic Arcade had 3 players, but who knows. Still a sonic clone of Mario Bros would be hilarious, especially considering Sonic Jam 6.

    Top tip: to fail a location test it generally suggests it was a bad idea, I.e. the game will probably suck.

    Sonic Xtreme sucks too, but we still get excited for it.

    Doesn't matter if the game sucks or not, the point is that its otherwise unreleased and datamining this thing will be glorious. beautiful new assets!

    Hoping for some cool music and nice eye candy, whatever it is. Just the fact it's unreleased and unheard of, there's really no way it can disappoint for me.

    Hardcore Gaming 101 apparently knows about this game:

    So the gameplay might be a bit similar to this:

    Then again, Popils was 1991 so this being turned into that doesn't make much sense. Maybe he meant it the other way around?

    Wait. Fukio worked on Popils, but it came out in 1991. SegaSonic Bros. is '92 which means it was either developed alongside or a port. This couldn't have been translated into Popils. I'm thinking it was the other way around with SSB being the port/remake. The pieces are fitting into place now I think.

    This was kinda used actually. The song would eventually be used for the SegaNet exclusive port of Teddy Boy Blues that was included in Game Can Vol 2 for the Sega CD.

    From VGMDB:

    Here's the song in question. Here's a faster version of the same song. It's similar to the one in the album, but it's not exactly the same.

    That's great,

    but I'm responding to the "I hope this is like Mario Bros., I hope this is like Bubble Bobble" posts. I.e. "I hope this is like a good game".
     
  15. I don't think anyone is really hoping for anything other than the game to get dumped. It's just speculating on what we've got so far for fun. Even if it sucks, it's still interesting to think that, in 2016, there's still new things popping up.

    Sure, I get that. Obviously if this were "like a good game". They would have sold it. Heck nowadays SEGA sells things are nothing like a good game.

    Waitaminute, really? I love thay game! When I was a kid I played this game a lot. Specially the editor.
    However, this got a little confusing with the Popils 1991 <-> SegaSonic Brothers 1992 inception thing there.

    Also, head-on (2p vs) mode on Popils? I'm thinking on how would it even work.

    @TimmiT, @Tanks, you're both awesome.

    Who knows, maybe red Sonic can continuously double jump if you keep pausing the game. :-P

    Posting here because of new page. But that song's lyrics:

    Afaik the lyrics themselves have nothing to do with Teddy Boy Blues and sound more like something for Sonic.
