In accordance with my geeky journalistic duties, I was more than ready to tear this 20th Anniversary legacy trailer a new asshole had Sega dared to not included a particular Sonic game. But damn! Today’s Hedgehog lovefest is a remarkably thorough zip through Sonic’s (mostly) proud history. They even went so far as to acknowledge the atrocious 2006 reboot, the dumbass Werehog game, and that first Wii title no one remembers.
Sure, I would’ve liked to have seen a nod to Sonic R, however, that would open up a ridiculous fanboy disussion and I really would prefer not to have to acknowledge whether or not that one game with the sword is part of the "Main" series. And there’s no time to debate that now, as Sega’s also sent over your first look at a new classic level and TAILS!
Above: One of these Tails is blatantly better than the other. Can you guess which one?!
If that weren’t enough to send folks into a fangasm fit (or a needless argument over pupil color, your choice) Sega’s also unveiled the first look at Chemical Plant Zone, which I personally associate with having one of the finest musical themes this little medium of ours has ever produced.
I implore you to head here to see more shots of the famous factory in both 2 and 3D. And I'd expect more Sonic fan service to be announced at Comic-Con, which we head out to tomorrow. Come say "Hi!"
