    Are the other games at this event only by appointment? They are acting like this is some epic unique game when what they’ve showed off ranges from awful to mid.

    I believe the appointment thing is normal for the games being showcased here. I might be wrong? Because otherwise I don't see any reason they'd do it

    Iizuka desperately trying to link Frontiers support to getting SA3, which is a game they've already made 4 times...

    Bit of a nothingburger, this interview.

    I THINK that might be the case after doing some research. I heard the recordings of other games aren't also allowed, so people uploading off-screen footage of SF6 are just breaking NDA I guess.

    Speaking of screenshots...

    Okay, you can't really see much here, but hey, there's some white texture that's probably a road, and a bush.

  8. Totally agree that there's quite the tonal shift between SA2 and Shadow, or Heroes to both SA2 and Shadow, but especially between SA and SA2.

    Looks a lot like sky sanctuary to me.

    Based off the straightish road and the railings could this be one of the cyberspace levels?

    Given the recently announced Knuckles prologue animation I wonder if Angel Island is trapped in cyberspace?

    Edit:
    What’s the source of that screenshot?

    Not where I want to be.
    Sonic (?): Coming summer of 2055...?
    That's a point...is the whole game in cyberspace? I wonder...

    Crappy off-camera background footage. Uploader thinks they see a spindash but I don't think it is. Is this video in 60fps? I can't tell just by looking right now, but if it is, I think the game is too.

    EDIT: more video. Sonic falls from a very high cliff in this one.

    this is supposedly one of the cyberspace levels...but it sure looks like a real place. Are they supposed to be tron-esque "we're in a computer" cyberspace or "realistic" VR simulations?

    I think they're supposed to be excuses to reuse content. It sure looks to me like they just repurposed some Windmill Village assets, and personally, I'm all for it! Better something like this than a generic computer aesthetic.

    You can see parts of the HUD here. It looks like there's a speedometer in the bottom right.

    Some sort of...cross pattern on the left? Something mapped to the d-pad, I suppose. Items? Is this a Sonic soulslike?

    Some people are saying it looks like Gens' Sky Sanctuary so if these levels are reheated Gens assets...woof. The drama and flame wars will be tremendous if that's the case.

    The taskbar just being visible like that is really funny to me for some reason.

    Looks like a very small, minimalist HUD. Bottom right is probably some sort of CyLoop / "powers" gauge. Upper left might be a health bar of some sort, I know some people are theorizing that Sonic can only take so much damage but refill health via rings like the Werehog. Beneath that is probably things like ring counts and collectibles.
