Hmm... Imagine this scenario. Sonic Frontiers will replace all the rings for blue coins. Iizuka will give an interview saying "Rings were always only a game mechanic. There is no lore in them. By replacing them for coins, we hope to please both the old fans and the new ones". Twitter gets crazy about it. Tons of videos are uploaded on Youtube stating how people miss the old Sonic when everything was so much better. The game comes out and backslash happens. Two years pass. Ian Flynn tells us in his podcast we should not worry about the blue coins anymore. In 2025, Sonic Team releases the next game, Sonic New Lands. Rings are back, with a major importance. Iizuka says in another interview that Sonic Team learned from previous mistakes. The game is good. People begin to miss the boost formula. Sonic Team decides to bring back the boost formula for the new title, Sonic Frenzy. And Green Hill. And Zavok.
