As we imagine you've seen by now, it would appear that Sonic's full appearance for his upcoming movie has been leaked online. Fan reaction has been pretty negative, to say the least, and even Sonic creator Yuji Naka has taken to Twitter to share his confusion at the design.
Rough translations: "Is this a sonic movie?"
"I feel that it is important to look at the whole body visual of Sonic and head body and stomach. Did you not get a little more balance?"
We have to say, something about our favourite blue hedgehog is definitely off. There are a few things we could point out, such as his white fur hands (no gloves!) and plain Nike shoes, but we've since realised that it's the eyes that cause the biggest problem.
IGN Deputy Reviews Editor, Tom Marks, has 'fixed' this very issue in this image shared on Twitter. Gone are the strangely small, separate eyes, replaced with Sonic's classic mega eye that spans across his whole face. You'd think the one eye approach would be the weirder of the two, but it really is how Sonic is supposed to look, isn't it?
We doubt any changes will or even can be made to Sonic's design in the movie at this stage, but we'd definitely prefer to see this design grace our screens than the current one.
