    During ArchAngelUK's radio show, he made an announcement about "Sonic Colours news Monday and franchise changing news Thursday."

    Now, what could this news be? I mean, something considerably "franchise-changing" has to be something <I>incredibly</I> big. Either the news will be really good or something not-so-good; but either way this must mean something big. Just thought it would be a good heads-up to know and anticipate this, and possibly discuss this since noone else has bothered to.

    Also, for further notice, it has nothing to do with the game series.

    Isn't franchise-changing something that could be used to describe, well...<b>anything</b> officially done with the property?
     
  3. Who knows.
    It could mean Yuji Naka returning to PROGRAM for Sonic games, instead of watching at a distance.
    It could be Yuji Naka forming a new "Retro Studios" Knock-off to finish Sonic 4 (maybe continue with Sonic 5).

    Those I would consider franchise changing, because its HUGE news for the fans and would likely change the course of Sonic games for a long time.

    At least we have Colours info to pacify us untill Thursday.

    Talk of such massive news has me wondering. It could be even mean the announcment of the 20th Anniversay game, but thats not franchise changing (unless....NAH)
    Possibilities are never ending.

    The world of Trophies
    Sonic In Mushroom Kingdom
    20th anniversary game, calling it now.

    Too bad I don't expect much since SEGA tends to hype everything related to Sonic lately (still remember the Shellcracker concept art).



    Still more proof that Sonic 4 was never meant to be important.
     
  6. Maybe Sega is done with Sonic forever?

    That would be franchise changing alright.

    I don't know what this is, but I get the feeling that it's going to be stupid. Sega has a history of stupid.

    If this really doesn't have anything to do with the games, it might be less stupid.

    Thursday is usually when S4 stuff hits.



    I will always have hope for a classic Sonic return, I think that would be considered franchise changing.
     
  9. Hmmm .... maybe they're changing Sonic's color. That'd be franchise changing.

    EDIT: and yes, Rika Chou, that would be great! But sadly I don't think Sega would do that... erm.. well there's always hope.

    "We have sold Sonic the Hedgehog and all related characters and properties to Nintendo. Sonic 4 and Sonic Colors have been turned over to Nintendo EAD for completion. Good day."

    I can dream, right?

    That's not changing.

    Whatever it is I doubt it'll be as big as what ever you kids hype it to be.

  14. It could be a full-length CGI movie made by VE...
    Doubt it, but if it doesn't have much to do with a game then.....

    They also said it doesn't have anything to do with the current games either..

    It could possibly be something among the lines of relation to a change in aesthetics, comic stuff (considering the issues of Penders vs Flynn here), or possibly a movie / show of sorts. Who knows really..

    Anything to do with Archie is not "franchise changing". It will be games related whatever it is =P

    We actually joked about that on #retro when I said that.
    Knowing SEGA, it's not going to be anything good. And Yuji Naka doesn't want to touch Sonic games any more, so you'll have to make do with Dimps making the games the wrong way.

    Hoping here that SEGA is done with Sonic forever.

    ...which means that it is <I>not</I> going to happen. Sonic is what have been holding SEGA's bars for so long, no way they are ending with it.
