    Goddamn kid. Be courteous.

    We had a couple people like that at the SiIvaGunner MAGFest panel too. It made me die inside a little bit.

    They incorporated the R logo for Sonic R for the racing game tease. "Not a direct sequel to any other game in the past" though.

    I think that might've broken the record for the most nondescript Sonic teaser released by Sega yet. That was barely a thing.

    Working on my art!
    Nah, remember project needlemouse :v:

    Using the Sonic R 'R' though, I love it.
     
  12. The fact it's paid DLC really gives me hope it is a meaty update. I can't wait and I will buy the upgrades and several physicals.

    And did Iizuka really confirm a two tier system of development for the Classic and Modern properties? That'd be fucking amazing

    So is this "not a sequel" racing game just Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing?

    Nah, I think he was just re-affirming that multiple teams work on the Sonic games more than anything, which has been true for decades now. I doubt he'd make a statement that big at SXSW.

    Most exciting thing for me was that they're recognising Mania's success and green-lighting more Mania at light speed and in record time. I'm going to buy that Sonic Mania Plus physical version so hard. That was a really slick tease of the new "Sonic R" racing game too and an awesome throwback to the Saturn game. Even if the game's unrelated and not a direct sequel.

    Quite the awesome presentation I thought. Sonic Team made good on their promise of more Mania if the game was successful. An eventual sequel must be a certainty at this point.
     
  16. So you're saying SEGA is giving you a..... physical release?

    While this is great. Very great. Love any mania content....

    Work on spin-offs/dlc means less work on sequels. sad emoji

    Holy shit. Hahahaha. Literally made me laugh out loud.

    EDIT: Regarding the "Sonic R" logo thing that makes me infinitely more interested in the game what with fond memories of Sonic R on the Saturn. Sega clearly knows their hardcore Sonic fanbase very well. It's not a direct sequel so wonder what the connection is? Just surface level fan service or something more meaningful?

    Sega/Sonic Team almost re-used the "Sonic R" branding once already.

    https://www.sonicstadium.org/2005/04/sonic-r-extreme-update/

    In April 2005 a multi-platform game titled "Sonic R EXTREME" was listed on a video game retailer's upcoming release list. Sega, naturally, shot it down and said no such game existed.

    Then in September 2005 "Sonic Riders" was announced, a multi-platform game where Sonic characters raced on "Extreme Gear", and the game's logo had a prominent red "R" (the "iders" was a white font).

    This upcoming game looks to be doing a similar thing with the logo, using a stylised red "R" for the word "Racing". Only this time it's the original 1997 "R".
