China might well not be getting a release beyond the PC. God knows about Korea.
Wouldn't it be more work to not include all the translations in all the ports? Are there really that many platform-specific things that need to be translated? Or is it some filesize thing?
The voiced stuff has been a thing since Generations, but the other stuff is new, so that's nice.
I can imagine that being the case for the Switch anyway but the PS4/5? Strange.
Parity between consoles and whatnot.
Does the Xbox not count as a console anymore?
Is it possible that Microsoft are bankrolling those languages? Good localisation is expensive, and "Xbox and PC" is a shared category they're very fond of pushing.
So....Japanese Sonic account shared their available languages for the japanese release, and it's actually different
They are like that:
The thing is....some options like koreans and chinese are actually available for all consoles in japanese release, but not in the original tweet from English official sonic twitter
What i am trying to say is that...it's not really a case of some weird exclusivity. but simply how PC and Xbox actually have international digital versions, while other consoles still have different versions depending on the region, so they can have different language options
Here's the Tweet from the Japanese account. It seems there will be two different SKUs for Switch and PS4/5, one for the "International" market which contains one set of languages and a SEA version which contains another. Xbox and PC have all languages regardless.
The SEA SKU will have voice tracks for English and Japanese only, will have game text for Japanese, English, Korean and Chinese Simplified and Traditional.
The official Sonic Frontiers Japanese website has also been updated to reflect these languages for the SEA version (scroll all the way to the bottom): https://sonic.sega.jp/SonicFrontiers/
I'm doing a little research for the Sonic movie Wikipedia article, and I discovered there are emails in the 2014 Sony Pictures email leak about how Sony secured the rights from Sega before the project moved to Paramount. Should these be transcribed on the Wiki? I don't have a Wiki account so I posted here to let you guys know; they're not on there currently.
"A new entry presenting Sonic Project 22 "Frontiers"has been published on the Sonic Channel website the site says the access is forbidden but according to google it will be open in two days"
Got pretty far in the survey but then I accidentally answered "yes" when they asked if I have kids and I couldn't go back ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Sorry but you have kids now, blame Colours
It's pretty cool from Sega to do these polls lately. They did one for Forces and Mania too I think?
Somewhat unrelated but Capcom did a poll post RE7 and what I answered as my ideal RE game pretty much became RE Village lol. I'm sure it's a coincidence as the game was probably already being worked on, but I wonder how seriously gaming companies are looking at these polls.
For some reason, people were wondering if Sonic Origins was cancelled, so Katie had to confirm it wasn't.
Things were very quiet indeed.
You can see most of the contents of that specific link a little early via Google web cache.
Not much out of the ordinary here, though we do have more of that JP Twitter header image visible, with the Sonic render switched out and moved over a bit.
That "Project Sonic 22" logo almost reminds me of a modernized version of the ancient "Project Sonic" logo from the Saturn era.
I think it's intentional, it's silhouetted in nearly the same manner right down to the white outline, and he's even doing the same "presenting" pose with his hand, albeit the opposite one.
Man I love the Saturn era artwork so much.
Even the font they used for Project is kind of similar anyway, but it's been modernized (the old font was very 90s) . And very much agreed that Saturn art was fantastic. Figures one of the worst eras for Sonic had some of the best art lol
The 90s "project Sonic" eventually became Adventure right? They def seem to be treating this as Sonic's next step rather than yet another game.
Did the movie's positive response make them care again or something? They're asking for feedback, patching games, delaying them for quality assurance, playtesting. This response is a far cry from what we got with Forces and Team Sonic Racing (Mania got good support but that was a given considering how much good will they gained from it)
Separate names with a comma.
