Hahaha okay so I just learned that there is no plans to bring this to Japan as of yet according to NintendoEverything so that means they truly are focusing all their might into focusing on the Western gamers. Once again I'm optimistic for the game and won't judge it until I play the game, gameplay looks very appealing...but we'll see. As for Knuckles....when he's in motion it doesn't bother me as much, when I saw him climbing and punching it seemed good.

Kind of pissed this isn't taking over the main series. I guess it's a good thing, but just from the video of the TV show and tebgame its looking better than lost world.

WAT!

I have to say, I enjoy the new character models. They look great in my eye, and I think the game can really drive Wii U sales if the Cartoon Network show is a success.
However, the fact of this being a licensed game gives me a bit of fear. I don't want to see Sonic Boom Wii U and 3DS turn out to be like Pac Man and the Ghostly Adventures.

The crappy licensed games are usually made in less than a year, so the fact that this game has been in development for two years is a good sign.

I'm not a fan of the art style, but it'll probably grow on me. Hopefully the gameplay is good because that's all that really matters to me.

I was honestly a bit disappointed in the end with Lost World. Sure it had a pretty good story, interesting new gameplay mechanics and all. I guess in the end, it left me feeling cheated. Once you completed the story and got all the Chaos Emeralds, you've done most the game has to offer.

Sonic Boom on the other hand, seems like it will be more in-depth; with multiple playable characters and a (seemingly) 4 player co-op mode. I really love the new character designs and the tone that both the game and TV show are giving off.

Here's hoping it will be a definitive Wii U Sonic game!

@Austroid I actually enjoyed Sonic Lost World a bit, but yeah I agree with the fact that it was a little to short for my liking. I finished it in a few short sittings. But dang it the music was fantastic and I'll defend that with my dying breath, probably some of the best music from a Sonic game I've heard in a while. Dat last boss music:

@64supermario Yeah I agree, the music was pretty phenomenal! (Loved Tropical Coast Act 3 the most.)

It seems like ever since Colors, that Sonic games have gotten truly memorable tunes again. I couldn't get enough of all the Aquarium Park and Planet Wisp melodies!

I'm really excited about it. I'm patiently waiting to decide which console I want to buy, Wii U, PS4, XB1, and the Wii U actually has more games that interest me more than the other consoles to be honest.
I got a 3DS, but I want to play Sonic Boom on the big screen, so this has defiantly persuaded me onto the Wii U side.

The designs for the characters are pretty bad IMO. Not looking forward to it.

I'll just wait and see how it turns out.

Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors

Wait. The TV show is a comedy? Why is the game being marketed as serious in that trailer?
And I swear, Sonic has done that exact pose in the trailer where they're surrounded by enemies before and didn't look that stupid. How longer did they make his legs!?

@RetroJosh I'll be honest I've really wanted to pick up a PS4 just for the beauty of the system itself....but there is really nothing on it for me yet, nothing interesting at least. The best game I can find is Resogun, and that's not enough for me to buy a system for, Octodad should be cool too. Dead Rising 3 on Xbox One looks great....but I'm not going to Microsoft ever again after all the trouble they gave me on both my 360s (personally vendetta). Wii U I have like over 30 games now, most are small digital titles, but it still counts with my 17 disc games. I have high hopes for the Wii U in the coming future when it comes to game quality and Sonic Boom is a promising exclusive that just keeps sweetening the deal. Hopefully by the end of 2014 there'll be some games that interest me on the PS4. I can buy Watch Dogs on the Wii U, so that won't turn me.

We didn't really see much gameplay, so it's hard to make a proper judgment on this. I don't think the style fits Sonic, though, it's too edgy and realistic. You can tell this was made by Naughty Dog devs.

From the trailer it looks like this will be a different style of Sonic game, which is nice. As much as I like the traditional formula, it feels to me that most of the last eight or so Sonic releases have been largely the same with a different gimmick tossed in. Whether or not Sonic Boom ends up being a good game or not, I can only hope that they're trying to do something different to the norm with the Sonic franchise, like with Dark Chronicles.

They didn't say "a higher level" so i'm fine with that statement.

@64supermario I'm exactly the same. Primal Carnage & Battlefront are the only games I'm interested in for PS4, and I'm the same like you with Microsoft. I got a 360 for my birthday a while back & it became faulty within 3 months, plus they don't offer any good deals, while Sony is giving away free games every month via ps plus.
Wii U has a ton of games I'm interested in, plus I'm a student so I'm quite busy, and can't be fully playing these full story driven games for hours on end. Plus I'm not interested in these zombie games and games that look like a movie more than a game.... cough Ryse cough.. But yeah I definitely have the same view as you on this one.

I assume they don't have high expectations for this one. otherwise it would be planned for a release in japan too.

@GuSilverFlame The tv series won't be airing in Japan, so why would they release the game to a country that doesn't even air the show its based off of?

They probably want to wait and see first. The game could be much better than Lost World but being saddled on the Wii U isn't a n ideal situation especially if the cartoon series and toys take off.

Plus Japan as a Market doesn't matter when the cartoon series isn't Planned for Japan until next year. The fact that the cartoon is getting a tie in game when Sonic X didn't days they have some faith in it.

As far as looks I'm down with them. Sonic being so tall is the only one that weirds me out.

@RetroJosh oh so the series won't air the series there either. well now it makes sense(I mean not airing it in japan, even if it ends being good it has an extremely high chance of not being accepted in japan) because the game is tied to the tv series.


@Shingi_70 this also makes sense... Sonic X was great(when I first watched it, I was about 13, maybe) and it didn't get a game so if this series will get a game it might as well be something great

Well Sonic as a character is far more popular in the west than he is in Japan, even to the point of mwrchasdings. Dudes had a long running comic series since the 90s and is currently holding two ongoings.

Sonic is like Zelda (or most series in the industry) where the Western sales matter much more than the Japanese sales these days.
