Honestly the only issues I’ve had with the canon reshuffle so far are the idea that Sonic 1 is now the first conflict and Sonic may not be from Christmas Island anymore, but these things honestly don’t even matter beyond flavour text. Sonic being from Christmas Island has never ever been referenced in the games or basically any mainstream material to my knowledge (maybe it was in the manga or something I don’t know), but maybe it’s better we don’t know. That has merit as being congruent with Sonic’s trickster god vibes. Meanwhile, Sonic 1 being the being Sonic and Eggman’s first meeting is probably done as a simplification more than anything else. I don’t really think that was necessary but it doesn’t really hurt anything either. Like Christmas Island, nothing has ever been done with this concept. I think it’s natural to feel an urge to push back on this due to a perception of these original details being sacred, but they’ve never actually served the games in any way and I’d argue it’s more arbitrary to preserve them for no real benefit. Oh, I also don’t like the Sonic 1 16/8-bit split but I can’t really rationalise that.
