    Calling it now, 3/21 teaser, 4/1 will be the official reveal (in spite of the date). Similar to Generations' teaser being uploaded on April 7th, and then the game was officially revealed April 18th. Both have the same waiting gap period.

    That said, I'm totally all in favor of Ruby pulling an April Fools prank first and either announcing a Sonic 2006 sequel or Big's Bass Fishing 3000. :ruby:

    Echoing the above three posters in that the numbers probably convert to dates. I think Ruby's post earlier on this thread was most definitely a date indicating that the other numbers refer to a March date. So as everyone else said teaser in March and reveal in April with the game following the same marketing pattern as Generations?

    As for Big the Cat being used in the image I think it's pretty obvious what that means: Big's Extreme Fishing Fighter II Turbo: Hook, Line and Sinker.

    Remember how wonderful the Generations reveal trailer was?

    Hopefully the next game matches it's epicness.

    If it wasn't for Big being in the picture, this could actually make so much sense that it feels kinda scary!

    Makes plenty of sense. Instead of Sonic and Tails co-op we'll have Sonic and Big Co-op.

    Dark Sonic, I can barely see my phone's screen right now from belly laughing at that pun!

    I get the feeling the guessing game's going to last a few months before everybody runs out of ideas, and then the real thing turns out to be something we couldn't have guessed in a million years. :v: I'm used to this from the SRB2 forums' old April Fools events.

    Edit for clarification.

    The 4, 1, and 16 are in Comic Sans, so that's a date: April 1st.
    The 3 and 21 are in a different font, so maybe March 21st they'll have an announcement about something??

    The different font is Papyrus.

    Ruby likes Undertale.

    So while confirming a new Sonic Universe issue in May, someone left a little random sequence of numbers in the last tag on tumblr.
    http://sonicthehedgehog.tumblr.com/post/137312870363/yup-its-real-get-your-sonic-universe-knuckles

    Probably just there as a joke to throw people off, but maybe someone can figure something out otherwise?

    EDIT: Ah. The 4 is missing from the first set, and the 1 is missing from the second set. :ruby: 4/1/16
     
  11. Absolutely wonderful. :ruby:
