Turns out that the Sonic Boom
games being terrible didn’t completely ruin the series. Turner Broadcasting sent out a press release today
that says the Sonic Boom
TV show will be a returning series in Cartoon Network’s 2015-2016 series. Seeing how only a quarter of the show’s first season has aired though, this likely means that they’ll just keep on airing the rest of the episodes rather than a new season being produced.
Other notable non-Sonic related stuff coming up is a Powerpuff Girls reboot (seemingly in the same style as last year’s CGI special) and a direct-to-TV Regular Show movie.
Forum member Jollyroger has managed to get the leaked POV version of Sonic X-treme to run on a SEGA Saturn. While he hasn’t been able to record footage of it yet as he doesn’t have a video capture device, he did take a photo of the tech demo running on his Cartdev/Mirage.
According to Jollyroger, this shows that while the version is nowhere near playable in its current state, it shows that Point of View would have been capable of making a reasonable version of the game for the Saturn if they had enough time.
Be sure to keep an eye on the Sonic Xtreme thread on our forums for more findings about this prototype.
SEGA gives us our first glimpse at what Sonic Runners
actually looks like with this new gameplay trailer showcasing Sonic, Knuckles and Tails running through worlds from Sonic Lost World
It also teases that a bunch of other characters will be in the game, including Shadow, Amy and Vector. Aside from that, there appears to be some sort of story mode that includes boss battles with Eggman, and Chao return as support characters that seemingly affect the way you’ll play the game.
Finally, it looks like Sonic’s been made slightly shorter in this game and his quills aren’t quite as long as they used to, making him resemble his classic design a bit more while still looking modern. Sonic Runners is coming to iOS and Android in Japan this Spring. SEGA also updated the game’s official website to include more new info and screenshots.
