    Great idea, imagine how great games would be if they got longer develpment time, unfortunately in today's day and age people want new games instantly and don't want to give developers time.

    Good Sonic games can be made as illustrated with Colours and Generations but the issue with Sega is the obsession of putting out Sonic games regardless of quality which hurts the rep of the IP. Hopefully we'll get some decent Sonic shit other from the Taxman.

    So essentially they are saying that their games where shit. Well...who am i to disagree.

    Still, i still don't think that giving developers more time would magically make Sonic games better,
    they will just have less bugs and that's it. Its who and what is being done and not how slow or fast.
    Idea matters not time.

    Well this is great news but I’ve learned to keep my expectations low so I’m thinking whatever they come up with is just going to be a rehash of the same ole modern Sonic gameplay we got tired of since Generations.

    I wish they’d:
    1. Not build levels around the boost mechanic and create bigger explorable levels (Sonic Adventure 2 style, I know I know)
    2. Bring back Sonics friends (Tails, Knuckles, +Insert female) with different gameplay styles (no Classic Sonic, leave Classic Sonic to the people that did Sonic Mania)
    3. The modern 3D games lack charm so somehow add charm to the levels/story
    4. No more Wisps or Deadly Six

    Like I said, I’m not getting my hopes up. Something tells me that Sonic Team/Sega aren’t passionate about the series and they only show up for the pay ‍♂️

    A majority of that time was towards Hedgehog Engine 2, the dev time they probably had was closer to a year and a half

    When I saw the Sega documentary Sonic was supposed to be the "Mario killer" unfortunately Sega dropped the ball and was cooperative I heard Sega Japan and Sega America wasn't working well together.

    Sonic isn't really going to appeal to anyone nowadays I heard of Sonic Forces and Sonic Mania but I never played them. Sonic Generations was pretty good on PS3. At this point they need to retire Sonic

    The remake will need to run on PC, Switch, PS4 and whatever Xbox thing Microsoft has at the time of release.

    Is way more complicated to make a gane work well on so many things than when they just had to worry about it running on the Dreamcast.

    while they take time to code and make assets they have the worst part of the game already done, they have the story, the characters, the level layouts and everything, most of the hard works is already done, so no it isnt as hard as to make a brand new game from scrach because you have the bases for everything, just need to make better mechanics and make it preety, this is why activision remade 3 spyro games in like 1 years and half.

    TBH Sonic needs to die and another running sega franchise needs to be sega's mascot. Probably persona or bayonetta
    Or at least, get a new devteam for Sonic games. Sonic Team is just way too inexperienced and incompetent
    While they're at it fire iizuka too. Every game made with his supervision since generations has been a nostalgiafest with shoehorned wisp gimmicks in and green hill for the 90th time.

    uhh odyssey's 8bit sections?
    Mario Maker 2?
    The Mario and Sonic Olypmpic game?
    That's all i can think of. plus 2 out of those 3 had a reason to exist (odyssey for more moons, Mario Maker 2 because it was a style in the original and sequel)
    meanwhile green hill
    Sonic Mania
    Sonic Forces
    Sonic Lost World (windy hill is literally just a callback to green hill)
    Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed
    the Sonic Dash mobile game
    Sonic Generations, 3ds and 360/ps3
    only 2 of these had a good reason to be there, and even then Mania's excuse is because of, you guessed it, iizuka holding the team back because nOsTALgIA

    mario 3d world/land had mario 1 sprites in some of the skyboxes and backdrops, your scope isn't wide enough. pretty sure mario sunshine did as well

    +insert female? you mean cream, amy and rouge?
