[Rumor] Major Sonic reboot coming in 2014?
Personally I don't mind movie reboots...if they are good but rebooting one of my favourite franchises ever and completely starting over...that worries me.
Sega is planning to make a major overhaul of the Sonic Series, according to the source who spoke to TSSZ (Which is a Sonic fan site). An open-world reboot that introduces “a whole new universe for Sonic to do battle and new characters for him to befriend… in effect destroying most canon that precedes the re-launch and wiping the slate nearly clean.”
SEGA may also have plans to monetize the game via a toy collection mechanic that would work similarly to Activision’s Skylanders series. “The strategy could also be used to unlock extra levels.” Both SEGA and Sonic Team are experimenting with “new gameplay methods and gimmicks”.
Editor's Note: With a 2014 launch expectation, what do you g1's think?
