5:24 - Since Sonic Origins seems to be the new official first games of the timeline, what about Tails Adventure and some spin-offs like Dynamite Dux and Flicky? More specifically, the Japanese story for Tails Adventure seems to indicate that it would take place before Sonic 1 since the Chaos Emeralds had been on Cocoa Island since time immemorial and is where this game takes place but specifically states it's before the West Side Island incident. Meanwhile, the English story instead states that Sonic and Tails had parted ways for a little vacation time and that the island in this game is instead called Tails Island and is Tails' favorite holiday spot. Which is the canon version? As for Dynamite Dux, are Bin and Pin young in that game? If so, wouldn't it have to be a generation earlier since one of them is Bean's father? - For Tails Adventure, things are being adjusted. A spin-off Game Gear title is not as beholden to the canon as the main series. So expect some retconning I guess, in some regards here and there. (...) Don't worry about it too much because it's never really mattered, but there is thinking behind it. That's all I can really say right now. Dynamite Dux I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for that to be canonized into Sonic lore. I know, there's the link with Bin, but it's a different franchise and I think that's more kind of a bit joke trivia. Don't try to hang your hat on it. Same with Flicky, I don't that really counts as a Sonic title. Flicky is present in the Sonic series, but I think that's more of a nod to where the company used to be and where they've come from, rather than 'these are shared assets and therefore everything is canon'.
