Big Red Button lead talks Sonic Boom gameplay

Sega made waves yesterday with their announcement of Sonic Boom -- which is a television series, a toy line, and a set of two games for the Wii U and 3DS. While Sanzaru Games at large wasn't on hand to discuss the 3...

The Mario and company Sonic Boom redesign was great, but it was one of many wondrous fan compositions inspired by the redesign.

Please post more in the comments. Please.

Mario and friends get a Sonic Boom redesign too

Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy and Dr. Eggman all just got a major redesign for the new Sonic Boom game. It sure is ... something. Artist Andrew Dickman imagines what Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Peach would look like if they got the same redesign treatment too. There's been some hilarious reactions to what Sega has done with the Sonic franchise all over the net. Post your favorites in the comments below.

Sega reveals new Sonic Boom sub-franchise and game

At the "Year of Sonic" event, Sega has revealed Sonic Boom -- a new sub-franchise in the Sonic world. The new brand will not only sport the previously announced TV show, but two new games on the Wii U and 3DS. This is part of the exclusive deal with Nintendo.

The Wii U game will be headed up by developer Big Red Button (led by a former Naughty Dog art director), and the 3DS version will be handled by Sanzaru Games (the studio that developed the new Sly Cooper). The games will serve as a prequel to the CG TV show.

We didn't get a hands on session, but based on the footage we've seen of the Wii U version, the worlds look massive (although it is confirmed that it is not one open world), and projectile combat seems to be in. In other words, Sonic Boom is looking a lot like Ratchet & Clank right now. It's also important to note that the CryEngine 3 will be used on the Wii U, and that this version is confirmed to support co-op play.

Sega of America president and COO John Chen stressed that "Sonic Boom will not be replacing the original franchise."

Holy flying Shenmue reference: Sonic Racing Ryo DLC on PC

I've never been more happy about being trolled than when I saw Shenmue protagonist Ryo Hazuki as DLC for the mobile version of Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed last year. The trolling continues with the PC release of th...

Sega's All-Stars Racing on iOS is fun, but has horrid IAP

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a bona fide hit in my mind. I've had more fun with it this past year than any recent Mario Kart, and there's so much content to find, it's insane. Sumo Digital really did a gre...

YOSHI!

Sonic Lost World got some Yoshi's Island downloadable content this week and Sega is promoting the new content in such a '90s way. I love it.

Nintendo surprised us all with a special announcement for Sonic Lost World -- the Wii U edition of the game will be getting two new Nintendo-centric DLC stages.

While the pricing model hasn't been revealed on the second add-on (which is strongly hinted as a Zelda stage), the first pack, the Yoshi's Island Zone, is completely free.

Sonic Lost World gets a Wii U patch to make it easier

I never thought there was anything particularly difficult about Sonic Lost World on the Wii U, but apparently some people out there don't agree. As a result, SEGA has rolled out a fan-centric patch that allows you to ear...
