In an attempt to reroute the conversation from this stream of embarrassment, I'm curious how this game will be packaged. Will there be a launcher that allows you to select which game you're playing (since they're very, very likely separate engines) or will there be a Bowser's Fury-style in-game menu? I do hope they'll skip over the faffing about on whether or not Shadow is the real Shadow or not. What a pointless thread that was. Two entire games of "BUT IS HE REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEALLY SHADOW???" and then the big reveal is in some mode that about 0.5% of the unfortunate souls who purchased Shadow the Hedgehog ever actually saw. Obviously he's the real Shadow. They're not going to kill off Vegeta for some mild intrigue. I'm not sure if there's any truth to the "Shadow really was going to stay dead at one point" thing, but I wonder if they ever really considered Shadow being a copy of the original or if it was always nonsense. That'd be a fairly interesting characterization path. Shadow's morals are built on memories that might not even be his, and he's torn between his compulsion to follow them and the disgust (or hopelessness) of being only a copy of that person. That'd give him a reason to be a brooding edgelord. Of course you end it with, "It doesn't matter who you are, you're my friend!" and everyone eats cake and opens presents, the end.
