When Paramount first released the trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, it was met with immediate backlash over the design of the character. This was because the character looked nothing like what fans of the video game franchise knew and loved, which led to the movie being delayed while they reworked the design.
Movies that are based on video games tend to get a bad rep. However, it seems that with the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, it looks like Paramount might have a hit on their hands because according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, the movie just broke a record for video game movies where it managed to rake in $68 million over four days.
Earlier this year, the official trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie was released and it featured a very weird looking Sonic. This was met with massive backlash from the internet, which prompted the studio to delay the release of the movie while they went back to the drawing board to fix the character’s design.
When the Sonic the Hedgehog movie’s poster was first revealed, many expressed disappointment with how the character looked, especially since it looked nothing like what many gamers were familiar with. This was made worse when the trailer was released, confirming that the look was indeed real.
As many of you have probably heard or seen by now, there will be a movie released later this year based on SEGA’s Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. Based on the promo images and the recently released trailer, many seemed to have negative reactions to the way Sonic look where he seemed a little strange.
It has been a while since a main Sonic game was released. Fans of the iconic character can rejoice because it has now been confirmed that a new Sonic game has entered development. The confirmation came from Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka at the SXSW Sonic panel this weekend. He said that the studio has “begun production” on the next major Sonic the Hedgehog title.
Last year it was confirmed that in 2019, a live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie would be released. For those wondering what the movie could look like, a series of leaked images might have clued us in. This is according to a post on Hamagami / Carroll, Inc.’s website where the alleged promo images might have leaked online.
Earlier this year SEGA unveiled Team Sonic Racing, which is essentially the company’s take on games like Mario Kart where it features a bunch of characters from different SEGA franchises racing against each other. SEGA did not mention when the game would be released, save for a loose winter 2018 timeframe, but now it seems that it might only come in 2019.
It would appear that SEGA is working on a new Sonic racing game, at least according to a leak by Walmart which revealed the game earlier than expected. For those who are wondering about it, wonder no more because SEGA has since officially announced the game via the release of a teaser trailer.
If you’re looking forward to playing more racing games on your Nintendo Switch, it appears that someone at Walmart might have gotten ahead of themselves and posted a listing for Team Sonic Racing, an upcoming racing game from SEGA featuring none other than Sonic. The game isn’t exactly a secret as we have been hearing about it for a while, but we reckon SEGA would have preferred to announce it […]
SEGA’s Sonic franchise features some of the most popular and recognizable characters in video game history, and while gamers these days might be more focused on current titles, it seems that gamers are proving to be a nostalgic bunch because according to SEGA, Sonic Mania has managed to sell 1 million copies to date.
SEGA has released several classic games years ago and many of them are still relatively popular and fondly remembered even today. The good news is that if you’re looking to play some of them again, you might be interested to learn that SEGA has officially announced that they will be bringing several classics onto the Nintendo Switch.
