happy Thursday the 20th
In the not too distant past (October 2013 to be exact), Sega announced a new Sonic the Hedgehog series, Sonic Boom, in which will set to air on Cartoon Network in the states and both CANAL J and GULLI in France. I’ve briefly talk about my thoughts on Sonic Boom a few months back where I give my thoughts on the teaser image and the upcoming series itself.
Well, its been four months and Sega has released a hand full of Sonic Boom announcements including an upcoming Wii U and 3DS game of the same name. Below are the designs of our four main characters below.
I know…. I know what you are thinking right now and its a safe bet that “SEGA, WHAT THE F***” is going through your head right now. But before we all get into table-flipping modes here are a few things you need to know about Sonic Boom.
1) This is not, and I repeat, NOT THE RUMORED REBOOT, in fact, according to the official SEGA Blog, it’s “a new branch of the Sonic universe.” Also it has been confirmed but the official Sonic the Hedgehog Facebook Page when asked about the character redesigns, it “does not replace modern Sonic” meaning its an different interpretation of the current Sonic canon. Think alternate universe like the Archie Comics version.
2) As far as the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS versions of the game, this would be (possibly) the only time the “Sonic Boom” Universe will be featured in a game, for this this the final game out of the exclusive Sonic and Nintendo deal. (First being Sonic Lost World, second, Mario and Sonic at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games plus Sonic’s return in Wii U/3DS Super Smash Bros. as an added bonus).
Now we got those out of the way, lets check out the trailers….

My Impressions on SONIC BOOM (at this point)
With the current side of the Sonic the Hedgehog fan base, it didn’t take long for die-hard fans to rage and s**** on both the game, series, and re-designs in typically fashion. As far as the re-design of the characters, though I am grateful its not permanent, they don’t look half bad though they’ll take a lot (for me as a long time fan) to adjust. If I were to nitpick, what’s up with all that athletic tape?! But other than that, the “alternative” look for Sonic and company is really not as bad as the negative side of the fan base exaggerated. Still, don’t take my word for it because I’m sure 95% of Sonic fans don’t agree with or care about what I say. Welcome to the internet, motherf***ers! HAHA!
For the video game, I personally like the trailer. From looks alone, it looks fantastic. From what I can tell that not only you can play with Sonic, but as Tails, Knuckles and Amy as well. According to Kotaku, [Sonic Boom: the Game] will see players alternate control between Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy, utilizing each of their abilities, including Sonic’s speed, Tails’ flight, Knuckles’ strength, and Amy’s hammer. The game will feature up to two players cooperatively and four players competitively. In addition, the game will also have a two-player co-op affair in the main campaign and will have modes that support four players. The only gripe I have this is the new “Enerbeam tether” mechanic, which is kinda like an electron bungee cord each character has. Not much detail on the subject so we’ll probably find out more in the later months. The game itself looks good so far and from what I can tell, like Sonic Generations, it has something or both older and younger fans of the game alike. That said I am interested.
As for the series preview itself, its decent. I like the animation and the presentation and it actually fells like watching a legit Sonic TV series. As much as I love Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic SatAM growing up, the main problem about about the two series to me that it doesn’t full stay faithful the games. (And before you asked, Sonic Underground, the OVA, and Sonic X are non-existent to me). Now the voicing is indifferent however. Of course Roger Craig Smith and Mike Pollack returns as Sonic and Dr. Eggman respectively. It has been rumored that rapper Busta Rhymes is providing the voice for Knuckles in Sonic Boom in both the game and TV series, but that has yet to be officially confirmed. (UPDATE: Rumors about rapper Busta Rhymes voicing in both the Sonic Boom video game and TV series are FALSE! Knuckles will be voiced by Travis Willingham, best known for his voice work in the Full Metal Alchemist series, One Piece, Naruto, and several Marvel animated adaptations).
As a long time fan of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, “Sonic Boom” is quite different in appearance. I’ll admit that I was skeptical about its initial announcement, but after today, it’s not as bad as I feared. In fact, the upcoming series and game look decent thus far. It is understandable why most of the Sonic fanbase hates the new designs because the Sonic they all know and love is from the Sega Genesis-era. Though I’m not a fan of change myself, it is inevitable. We can either roll with it or just say “f*** it” and move to the next best thing but we all gotta remember that change is sometime needed mainly to the younger generation of those fans. Being this is a “separate” canon in the Sonic universe, it won’t replace its current one. That said, the hardcore fanbase needs to realize (which would be pointless to say, again, the internet). Anywho, I’m looking forward to Sonic Boom (the game more than the TV series, that is) and I would like to see more in the coming months.
A day late, I know but whatever. Normally I would congratulate the winner of this year’s Super Bowl but why bother when the losing team are the talk on the internet. Like the game itself, it’s a waste of time…
It’s the return of my Sonic plushie and he is pissed!! Check out my latest ADTC Short: “Sonic’s Revenge” right now!
The wait is over! My surprised 75th video, "ADTC Shorts: Rude Awakening," is now up for your viewing pleasure. Originally used as a promo for the last 5 episodes of the second season of TRIBALCHILD TV, I fixed everything from the sound, made it widescreen, and to top it off, I have none other than TheDragonSuperman to voice Sonic the Hedgehog so you can forget about my fail attempt to voice the Blue Blur in the original version. Also, this is the first video that was made with Windows Live Movie Maker to remake and converted to HD thanks to my Sony Vegas software. That said, this is the first HD re-mastered video but it won’t be the last. Enjoy! `;P
