Surprise! We're getting a new Sonic Central!
Well, someone did say in another thread that this would probably happen since they did this last time (announcing two days before).
I wonder what we'te getting BESIDES the Frontiers Wave 2 DLC.
Gonna take a punt and say the fifth playable Superstars character, maybe the sixth if it's Mighty and Ray! Also more stuff on Symphony World Tour, a trailer for Prime season 1 part 2 and probably a trailer for wave 3 of Frontiers DLC...and probably some schlock regarding Speed Simulator and Speed Battle to prey on parents' wallets.
My gut’s pretty close to yours. Here are My guesses:
- A release day trailer for origins plus
- Trailer for the 2nd round of frontiers free dlc (I don’t think the 3rd dlc will be teased)
- Trailer for next batch of Sonic Prime eps
- Ad for the IDW comics that particularly highlights the upcoming 900th adventure special (maybe they reveal the richard elson cover)
- Announcing events for mobile, roblox and minecraft games
- info on the symphony tour
- A quick comment that the knuckles series is on the way, without showing any type of preview
- An appearance from Ohshima leading into the reveal of the fifth character in superstars and a teaser for an animated superstars short
probably a mention of that minecraft texture pack that recently came into existence and some other tie in stuff, maybe a preview for an animated short for superstars. it'd be nice to hear about the knuckles show as well.
Wishlist? I know it's early, but fuck it
Trading card game bros! Let's celebrate!
You'll play the Sonic X one and like it.
Let's not get too hyped by that. #KnowingSmile means Ian was involved with something in the upcoming Sonic Central. It means nothing regarding the scope of the event or announcements therein.
I'm looking forward to the event all the same.
This all sounds about right tbh, though I think the short might be a bit much.
My hope is that they announce that Timothee Chalamet is voicing Shadow in Sonic 3 and Joey Diaz is replacing Jim Carrey as Eggman
Lego has (creepily) hinted that there will be some lego sonic announcements at the central https://twitter.com/lego_group/status/1671599741417693184?s=46&t=S0_YkQ8TRA2Bk54XvKgWfw
Tangle and Whisper for Frontiers let's go
In case it wasn't obvious enough, Kishomoto confirmed we're getting news about second wave of Sonic Frontiers DLC tomorrow on Sonic Central.
inb4 merch, mobile games crossovers... and more merch!!
I never thought they might reveal a 5th Superstars character tomorrow... but I WAS hoping to see another zone or a short interview with Ohshima about the game. Seems like a pre-release comic or short animation is all but confirmed.
I have a sneaking suspicion that we WON'T actually see Mario & Sonic at the Paris Olympics, purely because the Direct would've been a much better place to announce a new Mario-related spinoff game. Surely they're making one though.
Not expecting too much in the way of surprises or big announcements, it feels like SEGA likes to save their big announcements for events and trade shows that get a lot of visibility, and they know not as many people will be watching Central so they save that for all the smaller stuff.
Reminder of where we are at with Frontiers:
Yeah update 2's content is fairly vague, so it's gonna be mostly a surprise. The only thing we have for sure confirmed for it is the addition of the Spindash, but even then we don't really know how that'll work.
Anyways as for the show itself I'm curious as to what will be shown off. Obviously Frontiers will be there, and likely Superstars, but I hope we get more info on the next batch of Prime episodes, and hopefully maybe we'll get a glimpse at Knuckles' series for the first time. Beyond those things IDK what they'd talk about, probably just merch stuff as suggested before.
What do you mean, "vague"? It says right there... new Koco! Like Koco, but newer! And Sonic turned a year older. SEGA is so transparent
