Thanks for expressing your concerns so succinctly ICEknight, it provides us with well thought out perspective. The example you posted is truly atrocious in my eyes - that someone would want a "furry" Sonic in an S2HD remake doesn't make me happy in the least. Rest assured we're committed to the original vision that Sega had in mind back then. Going above and beyond is just that - extras. Attention to properly interpreting the original details will always take priority. This doesn't mean other ideas will be excluded, as Vincent posted (as we're looking for ways to enhance the experience in addition to nostalgic value), but it does mean there is a decided base we are working from. As for the 3D, I don't see that happening any time soon outside of the special stages. Should someone with the talent step up and attempt remasters in 3D, I'd be glad to take a look at them, but they quality they would need to have to fit with the rest of the 2D art would be staggering. In short, I don't see that realistically happening. Matching the proper toon lighting and shading would be tedious to say the least, and inefficient from a time standpoint compared to a good 2D remaster of the same object.
