Sega unveils Sonic Boom
Sonic's back again, and this time he's got a new look, and a CG TV series...
A new wave of Sonic is coming, and it's on the way to a number of platforms, including a new TV CG cartoon. Sonic Boom is being developed by California studio, Big Red button Entertainment, and is the last game in Nintendo's exclusivity deal.
The game features a newly redesigned Sonic and Co., with Knuckles looking particularly different, as if he's been hitting the steroids hard by the looks of it. Sega claims that Sonic Boom will be a totally different experience to previous outings, and it'll make full use of both the Wii U and 3DS hardware, including 3D support.
Big Red Button is working on the Wii U version of the game, and Sanzaru Games, also based in California, is creating the 3DS incarnation.
The CG cartoon will follow (the games are a prequel to the series), and will be comprised of 52 11-minute episodes. It's being produced by Sega and French studio, OuiDO! Productions, and is planned to air on Cartoon Network during the 2014/15 season.
Have a look at the debut trailer below and see what you think. Can Sonic ever regain his status, or should the Sega mascot call it quits?
