Sonic Boom officially announced as a new game

Quote:
SEGA has announced Sonic Boom, a fresh branch of the Sonic universe that includes a video game, toys and a new CG animated television series.

Sonic Boom will introduce redesigned versions of the popular hedgehog and his companions. To get your first glimpse at their new looks, check out the debut trailer for the Sonic Boom video game below, coming exclusively to Wii U and 3DS.

Starring Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy Rose, the Sonic Boom game will serve as a prequel to the TV series and will focus on collaborative gameplay. The third title in the exclusive Nintendo-Sega partnership following Sonic: Lost World and Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, it'll feature all the speed you'd expect from a Sonic game, alongside elements of exploration, combat and "a new Enerbeam tether mechanic".

The TV series will debut on Cartoon Network during the 2014/2015 series and will be made up of 52 episodes, each 11 minutes long. As you'd expect, a range of accompanying toys and merchandise will be produced featuring the new-look characters.

Hiroyuki Miyazaki, SEGA chief content officer for Sonic, said "SEGA is constantly looking to feed the appetite of Sonic fans, new and existing alike. The various pieces of the Sonic Boom project, such as its unique look, mix of comedy, and action and its focus on the whole ensemble with Sonic as the star, offer another exciting part of that universe for people to explore and enjoy. It will be at once familiar but also new."

Not to keen on Knuckles' new design, which will probably bug me the most since he's my favorite character, but otherwise I like the new look for the others

Weird that they'd reinvent the Sonic character designs at this point, especially considering that Sonic is starting to get good again. But it looks cool, and they're obviously going to a lot of effort to let people know that this game is different. Let's hope it's for the better.

SlenderSonic.

I still can't take Sonic's voice seriously, knowing who the actor is.

All the new designs are good except Knuckles, it just looks like they pasted his head on a buffer body. The game looks pretty cool too.

I've never played a Sonic game, but I may give it a try. I'll probably wait until I hear what you guys have to say about it. =P

I like the new designs, barring Knuckles, but I'm not at all a fan of Sonic's voice.
It's so... No.

I saw this on Facebook and just scrolled past but then went back up noticing Knuckles. It just looks bad really.
May check it out myself though.

I am already in love with this and the television series.

A fact should be pointed out about Big Red Button Games: they are made up of ex-Naughty Dog developers. Couple that with the redeemed Sonic Team and I'm absolutely tickled by the idea of Sonic Boom the Game.

The television sounds a lot more slapstick. One episode sees Tails get fired from Sonic's sidekick post and Eggman tries to get hired. The shenanigans seem more commonplace for comedy series over the monster-of-the-week type of kid's shows like TMNT, but hell....I may just tune in.

Looks cool except for Knuckles' redesign he looks like he's on roids now. And Sonic's legs are too long.
