Will 2017 Be The Year Of Sonic?

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 31, 2016, 7:20 PM

So this is the first ever Sonic The Hedgehog journal I've made in the 5 years I have been a member of deviantART. And I feel the time is now to finally share my thoughts about Sega's iconic mascot. 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of everyone's favorite blue blur, Sonic The Hedgehog. 25 years going strong full of ups and downs, some great games, and some not so great ones. With many comic book issues, a 5 cartoon TV series, a 1999 OVA, and a live-action CGI hybrid movie slated to release in 2018. But the upcoming year is what has peaked the interest of all Sonic fans alike (myself included). With two big games coming out the first one is Sonic Mania which is confirmed as a multiplatform sometime in the Spring 2017 release, going back to Sonic's 2D platforming roots in the Sega Genesis with Tails and Knuckles being playable characters; and being developed by Christian Whitehead who brought forth very awesome mobile phone and PS3/X360 ports of the Genesis classics and Sonic CD. Which is bringing a mix of stages we know, with new ones as well; along with new gameplay mechanics. And the next being an unnamed title at this time Sonic Project 2017 that's coming out for the Holiday season next year, this one being made by the same people who were behind Sonic Colors and Generations. Both games featuring the classic Genesis Sonic and looking phenomenal. The other interesting thing is Project 2017 has been confirmed that it's not a Sonic Adventure 3 or even a Generations 2, but something completely new. But I'm guessing by the tagline "Join the resistance." is indicating this game could possibly have ties to the popular Archie Sonic comic book series; so the "resistance" could refer to the Freedom Fighters from those comics. And by the looks of it you gotta wonder; has Dr.Eggman actually won and taken over this time? It does look pretty dark to say the least. There's much speculation of course for the Project 2017 game since very little was teased at the Comic Con anniversary party in July; but I personally hope there's multiple playable characters like Sonic Heroes and '06 (I would love to play as the Chaotix and Shadow again), Jun Senoue works on the soundtrack and Crush 40 comes back to do a main theme song again, either we get Ryan Drummond or Jason Griffith as the voice of modern Sonic back, and most importantly Sega and Sonic Team takes their time, and doesn't repeat the mistakes with Sonic '06 by rushing it. I honestly cannot explain my excitement level right now, as I'm going through all the games in my library, including the soon coming Sonic Boom Fire & Ice to hold me over for now. And after the recent plummeting of Sonic's reputation Boom Rise Of Lyric, and Shattered Crystal; should Sega live up to their recent apologies of those bad games, I really can't wait for what could be the year that Sonic The Hedgehog is officially back.

United States
Hey everyone! This is Emanuel here to tell you some things about myself! I was born and raised in Detroit A.K.A. HockeyTown. I have been a hockey player for a few years. I used to play on the Detroit Dragons midget bantam team. Played baseball when I was little. Reason why I'm here is to make friends, be a deviant, and spread the love! I am also proud to be a Christian, and an anime fan. Anime that interests me are Naruto, Fate series, Devil May Cry, Area 88, Yukikaze, Bleach, Durarara, and Gurren Lagann, among many others. I also watch Ninja Turtles and flash animated internet shows like Egoraptor's Awesome Series. My most favorite type of music is rock and rap. I'm a big time gamer and anime fan as well. My favorite games are Metal Gear, Ace Combat series, Devil May Cry, Halo, Sonic, Final Fantasy, sports games, shooting, and fighting games. Favorite game characters are Solid Snake, Big Boss, Eva, Liquid, Ocelot, Otacon, Meryl, Gray Fox, Raiden (MGS), Sonic, Shadow, Knuckles, Master Cheif, Cortana, Sgt. Johnson (Halo), Dante, Vergil, Trish, Lady, Nero (DMC), Cloud, Tifa, Yuffie, Zack, Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII), and Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden). I'm interested in cosplay which I think is a very fun activity. And I watch video game comedy stuff like Mega64, Game Grumps, and AVGN too. I even like nature and sight-seeing. Fun fact: When I was little, I took karate. I happen to be a science buff too. My deviantART content will feature photos of me as well as other things including wallpapers and journals. That's all guys!
