    New look for Sonic and his friends.

    Sonic Boom gives Sega's series a new look. Developed by two American studios (Big Red Button and Sanzaru).

    Sega has announced that the next Sonic the Hedgehog game, Sonic Boom for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, will be developed by a pair of Western studios. It will deliver a "fresh approach that will be at once both familiar and new" for Sonic and his friends, Tails, Amy and Knuckles.

    Sonic Boom will also encompass a TV series, and a toy line. It's launching this year:

    Take a look at a trailer for the game, below!


    And here is trailer for the TV series, enjoy!

      So this is the third exclusive?

      What is a EA/Crytek engine doing in a Wii U exclusive game?

      The gameplay looks like the old typical Sonic.

      Sonic boom? Thought of Kiss right away there.. ;)

      Sonic.... boooom.. Yes, i was on the Sonic Boom tour. ;)

      Bah. Never liked Kiss myself.

      That said, my first thought was the theme song of Sonic CD. :p

      1) yes it is, with a 50 episode tv series and a bunch of toys to help cover the costs.

      2) ea is crytek's publishing partner (hence crysis 3 got canned on wii u) but cryengine 3 is nothing to do with ea.

      Anyone else notice that Sonic is now a lean and fit character with nice thin long legs.

      He must be on his non-gaming days stepping up to theme song on the new Wii U Fit, or playing some Wii U Sports!

      I guess Nintendo asked for the changes to fit in with their new 'Healthy Life' plan for the Wii U and 3DS platforms.

      So my question when is Mario going to be force to hit the gym and work off some of mama's pizza and pasta...... :)

      Thinking about it, this adds (some) credibility to the rumour the other day since Sonic Team aren't working on this so they could be busy doing something else (yes I know Sega denied it).

      Knuckles on the other hand looks like he took steroids.

      Can't say I noticed either because I'm too busy looking at Amy. She's grown up to be a hot little hedgehog. I'd do her!

      It seems to me that the video from Sonic CD makes you want to play this game because Sonic kicks ass, watching this new game video I just don't get that "Sonic is a bad ass!!!" kind of vibe.

      Except for the god-awful music, this facelift seems like it could be alright.

      ...wonder if I can post that Sonic/Amy Rose/Rainbow Sparkle threesome video here....

      Yeah. I still think SonicCD is probably the best Sonic game ever. So much so that it's the kind of game that makes me set my Genesis & SegaCD up for because emulation doesn't do it justice. Had some really kick ass level music too. Shame how they did the audio where only some of each levels tracks were CDDA, and others were FM Synth, because it was always the best tracks that were the FM Synth one. I have many memories of starting the game, leaving sonic standing there just listening to the music till the timer ran out. Rinse. Repeat.

      The EU version was good too. Actually, some of the music and sfx differences of the EU version were even better!

      You're really trying to make me dig my Genesis out again, aren't you! :)

      if its nsfw then post just a link and note the case, if not then post away, google ads have been sacked anyway as they still insist we are a porn site even after attempting to clean even very old threads.


      why bother? it runs just fine off sd card on the wii or wi u vwii.

      I haven't tried it since I don't own a Sega CD myself but I do own a few games for it... recently I picked up Snatcher :) (Ssoooooo happy about that one.)

      But if it works as good as this seems to indicate I will try it out soon (also picking up a 32GB card for my Wii the old 8GB is just too full to be putting ISO's on.)

      http://timewarpgamer.com/features/emulation_sega_cd_on_wii.html

      I had heard that the EU version had better or different music, I haven't heard it myself but really the US version isn't bad at all from the limited time I have had to play around with it. My Sonic experience is 1-3 on the Genesis (Megadrive for the EU) and the Sonic games on the Dreamcast and Wii. I have only had a chance to play the CD version on emulation on a PC and what I got to play was pretty good.

      Oh, it's NSFW. :) (BTW, it was Rainbow Dash, not Rainbow Sparkle. Sorry I don't know My Little Pony names too well!)

      Really, just go to Bing Images and Bing Video, make sure safe search is turned off, and search for "Amy Rose Sex". Most of it is Sonic's Amy Rose. :)

      Nintendo fixed that ages ago..Waluigi. ;)

      Waluigi and Ice Climbers is my only favourite Nintendo characters.

      Looks like Ice Climbers will be in Smash Bros, and Waluigi not. :(

      I've always found CD overrated, good but not 'the best' sonic game (although one of the few reasons to own a mega cd).

      The reason why the 'past' tracks were not CDDA but ADPCM was due to the lack of space IIRC, which also lead to it not being replaced in the US version (probably because it would require programming).

      BTW, if you're interested there is a cheat code which allows you to access the sound test or the PC version has the 'past' tracks as CDDA.

      Our version had the JP soundtrack, which overall I prefer (for example, I prefer Sonic Boom over "Sonic you can do Anything" (aka "Toot Toot Sonic Warrior"), it was actually a shock when I got the EU version and it wasn't that since that was how I heard about the game through Sonic Mega Collection).

      Looks like a sex shop costume..hehe

      My wife would love to get a Giana Sisters doll or something.

      Her favourite game ever is Giana Sisters (Amiga). She claims any Mario game is crap compared to the 27 year old Giana Sisters. She don't like the new Giana Sisters..

      At Argos (at one point at least) you can get a 'sexy Beatlejuice' costume for females.

      I wouldn't be surprised if the 'sexy vagina' featured on "The Daily Show" is real by now.
