    Sega held a party for Sonic’s 25th anniversary at one of their Joypolis parks in Japan earlier today, . There they showed new gameplay of Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice and announced that the next main Sonic game will be released in 2017.

    But the coolest thing that was shown was the original concept art of various Sonic characters. While a bunch of it has been shown before, we also get to see never before seen design sketches of characters like Shadow the Hedgehog, E-102 Gamma and Big the Cat for the first time. You can see all of the concept art that was shown above.

    February 25th, 2016 by

    The partnership between Sega’s “Sonic the Hedgehog” and Archie Comics is one of the longest-running and most fruitful licensed deals in comics history, resulting in hundreds of issues based on the high-speed video game mascot since 1993’s “Sonic the Hedgehog” #1. In July, Archie returns to those 16-bit days with the “Sonic: Mega Drive” one-shot — “Mega Drive” being the Japanese name for the Sega Genesis, the first system a “Sonic” game appeared on — as a celebration of the character’s 25th anniversary, and CBR has the exclusive first details.

    “Sonic: Mega Drive” will be written by Ian Flynn and illustrated by Tyson Hesse (creator of BOOM! Studios’ “Diesel”), a reunion of the creative team behind Archie’s 2015 Sonic and Mega Man crossover “Worlds Unite.” The story is set in the era of the original Sonic games, and will feature Tails, Knuckles and Amy Rose, all characters from the first few Sonic titles.

    “Long time ‘Sonic’ comics writer Ian Flynn is at the helm of this commemorative story, which he is currently writing up and crafting in the same vein as an actual Genesis-era ‘Sonic’ game,” “Sonic: Mega Drive” editor Vincent Lovallo said in a statement to CBR. “It’s been a while since we’ve delved into the Classic Era of Sonic, so we figured the 25th anniversary was as good a time as any to revisit this iconic art style.”

    February 5th, 2016 by

    We’ve just changed our webserver from Apache to nginx. That basically means we switched the main piece of software that runs the site. (We’re still hosted at Digital Ocean and we still love them.) This means that, hopefully, our recent outages and slowdowns should finally cease. Let us know if anything weird happens.

    I have noticed the fanfic section of the site is missing, but it turns out it was already missing even before the switch. I don’t know what’s up with that and I’ll try to fix it soon.

    Looks like Sonic X ain’t as dead as people thought.  Diskotek Media announced that they have achieved the rights to the Sonic X Anime.  Expect to see DVDs soon.

    Now it appears that only a English Dub is planned for release.  The 4Kids dub.  However Diskotek Media does do it’s own translation so there is a chance for a new dub and possibly a sub depending on how well the dub sells.

    Keep your eyes open and hope for the best.
