In light of this news, it goes without saying that a lot more fans are likely to be excited for this game. This is the first time since Sonic 3 that Super Sonic has been a fully playable character in normal levels, excluding outings such as Sonic R. Will this start a positive new trend of blasting through levels at breakneck speeds with the ring counter ticking down menacingly? Only time will tell. One thing we can say is this, though–shit just got real.
Holy shit, I think today just got better.
E.G.G. Station Zone? In episode 1? Wow, maybe they’re adding more levels.
E.G.G. Station Zone is probably going to be a single-act level that takes place after the other four zones. I take that idea from the lack of an “Act 1” or “Act 2” mentioned in the achievement. Either that or it’s the game’s equivalant of Sonic 1’s Final Zone or Sonic 2’s Death Egg Zone, but somehow I have a gut feeling that it’s more like a Wing Fortress Zone.
well that made my day 😉
Shit got real? Oh, please. The game still looks like shit. No amount of tacked on nostalgia can save a broken, half-assed game.
I agree with you, actually. I was just referring to the impending shitstorm fan reaction. ;P
Hahaha, yeah. Fully agreed upon. Shit got real? More like SEGA’s tainting the past still.
Tainting the past, with this? Naw, I don’t see that. If anything, they’re getting at least one detail right. How can anybody complain about Super Sonic finally being playable after collecting all of the Chaos Emeralds, like he was in Sonic 2, Sonic 3, and Sonic & Knuckles? As a side note, the Achievements look fairly solid, although the only potentially challenging ones I’m seeing would be Untouchable, Super Sonic Genesis, and Ring Collector… unless beating the game’s first Act in under a minute is actually challenging this time.
I think Sonic 4 just got better for everyone 😀 YESS!!! Finally!!! After 16 years of, “Sonic collected all Chaos Emeralds. Now Sonic can be Super Sonic….But only in the final battle……In space….”
Sonic battled Chaos in space? hmm, could’ve sworn it was in a flooded city.tricky things to tell the difference between they are
Space is the most common place. SA2, the Advance series, the Rush series…
Even Sonic 3k had an Epic space final battle.
Well, even thoug I haven’t been good enouh (that or i haven’t tried hard enough) to get all the chaos emeralds, I have a bad feeling it will be easy to get them =( the games now a days make even the hardest things really easy, like the old sonic vs the new sonic
Thanks for the spoilers. -.- I have been trying to keep away from the sonic 4 thread and any spoilers about the game and to come here to get to the forums i get slapped in face with this topic.
Outside of that..cool stuff..
well I’m sure that most of the stuff is going to be the same old stuff, it’ll just be looking different XD
Man, is this true? at last, the fun can begin anew
Finally, a leak nobody can possibly bitch about.
i know right?
Son, I’ve been waiting for this news since 2000! (when I first played Sonic Adventure)
BRING IT ON! 😀
I must say, I was really angry when they revealed Sonic 4 (wanting 2D visuals, a classic Sonic, and all that) but things seem to have gotten progressively better. I’m now at the point where I’m actually looking forward to this. Once I got over the disappointment that this wouldn’t be the dream game I had envisioned, and just realized that it might still very well be the best side-scrolling Sonic for well over a decade, I’ve been feeling better about it. Heck, even Dimps being in command was good news, because they’ve been the real Sonic Team over the years since Sonic Advance…producing games of much higher quality than what Sega calls Sonic Team. Playable Super Sonic is definitely one thing that the developers got right! I’m getting excited!

Although the game has been confirmed to have super sonic as playable character (which is pretty freckin awesome in my opinion) I still believe the game needs to fix the gay jump but I think this could turn out to be a descent game like “Unleashed”.
Yeah, after seeing the jump in the leaked vid, I was kinda mad about it. The spinning animation looked slow and unfinished. But considering it was an alpha build I hope Sega notices and fixes it.
All we know is that there’s an achievement named after Super Sonic that you get for collecting all of the emeralds, that doesn’t tell us anything about Super Sonic being a playable feature in the game. To assume so would be foolish.
One of them says “finish all acts as super sonic” so yea that says he’s a playable char
