The new Sonic movie design sure has gobbled up a lot of column inches over the past few days. After the launch of the initial trailer, fan reaction was so hostile that the movie was delayed and retooled – with help from Sonic Mania's Tyson Hesse – and we now have a much more agreeable look.

TV's Conan O'Brien has taken a rather amusing swipe at the whole episode by running a skit on his show which 'introduces' a new-look design with a rather large new feature – which isn't addressed at any point during the piece.

However, fun is had by pointing out that, despite all of the injustice in the world, people actually took the time to complain about the look of a make-believe animal character from a '90s video game. It's a pretty funny piece, and well worth a watch.
