    I assume the "retro skin" for Modern is just the Adventure skin. What the hell is retro skin for Classic? Rabbit?
     
  2. Probably uses the Saturn era model, would be cool if it has the 3D Blast/Jam animations.

  5. God, I hope it's either Jam, R or the Fighters lowpoly skin.

    I prefer the way Fighters’ model looks but I think the Jam model would map better over classic’s proportions in Generations

    This is what I'm hoping for but I wouldn't be surprised if it's just this

    Saturn would be fine, but this is the one I'm hoping for. Classic Dreamcast Sonic, from the early builds of SA1.

    Probably late to this realization but there is something i just noticed

    Sonic and Shadow positions in the Japanese key art are similar to the Adventure 2 logo itself

    furthermore, the divide in the background between blue/white and red are similar as well, cool reference

  10. I thought this was immediately obvious given the game centers on the character who debuted in Sonic Adventure 2.

    I can't verify since I'm a monolingual pissant, but the GamerWK interview says that collecting Chao will expand the standard Generations stages? Donny's not sure if the article's translation is off, but this Indonesian fan says it's accurate. If so, then wow, this may be more elaborate than we thought...or it might be like the Jade Ghost wisp again.

    I'm guessing the Chao rescue missions will be similar to the animal rescue missions they added to the Cyber Space stages in The Final Horizon. I actually did like those, so I'm interested, and the fact there's new routes does give me more incentive to actually touch the Generations side of the game again

    I predict it'll be more like the hidden platforms and routes for the extra missions in SA2

    I really hope they’re focusing on nailing every area where Colours Ultimate failed. Jade Ghost was pathetic.

    Black Doom animal powers? That immediately makes me think Shadow's gonna get his own werehog form or something.

    All in all, I think it seems like Colours Ultimate was something of a semi-failed, semi-successful experiment. Successful in the sense that that there's clearly an appetite for remastered releases of 3D Sonic games, but failed because the external developer contracted did a piss-poor job of it. Sonic Team has been able to expand recently and with the success of Frontiers, it makes more sense for the to develop the next remaster in-house. Fortunately Sonic Generations is already in the Hedgehog Engine so that side of porting is going to be relatively easy. And then the new content within Sonic Gens and the entirely new game Shadow Gens are better handled internally. I don't see SEGA knocking on Blind Squirrel's door any time soon.

    10,000 hours in Google translate later. All hail our AI overlords
    Apparently the Doom powers will be mainly for combat, so my werehog joke could be not a joke. More interesting though is that apparently you'll use them to find new areas in this White Space hub. So we might be able to use the creepy fallen angel wings to fly around etc?

    Shadow Gens takes place before and after Generations' story rather than during? Does this mean we won't get a boss fight against Sonic? Cause I want that.

    What are you talking about? We have Shadow boss fight in vanilla Generations already.
