    It looks like the Saturn game they should've made.

    And I mean even from a technical standpoint, it does things the Saturn could do, and looks like how the Saturn would do them. The entire title screen looks like it was optimized for the Saturn background chip, it looks awesome. That part where the foreground overlaps the sprites and shows only their shadow, that's about the only iffy part in that regard.

    This is something the Saturn could do easily (widescreen aside), why not Saturn? In all seriousness though, the 360 isn't even manufactured anymore and I imagine Microsoft isn't even giving out licenses for it anymore, it'd be stupid to bother.

    The Saturn can clip the viewport when rendering 3D, right? Just clip the viewport and render sprites using a different palette in that area. Not really hard.

    Sonic Colours is a decent game, as is Generations. Teenage sonic is still an awful character.

    I understood the point of classic sonic in Generations, I don't get it here. Why are there two Sonics again? Is that going to be a thing from now on?

    Shadow would have been a much better fit for that trailer really. I guess we should just be happy to get Mania and leave the rest of the series to the Chris Chan crowd.

    Sega knows they divided their fanbase, this is their way of further cementing that there are two different Sonics in hopes of pleasing both camps.

    Which raises the question..

    Why did Edgy Sonic star in Sonic 4?

    OMG this looks so amazing. I am glad they went the classic route.

    Really like how colorful Studiopolis is. Hopefully the "re-imagined" levels don't just feel like a ROM hack.

    More pixels for that tan belly of his.

    You probably mean polygons, cause it looks like Sonic 4 is all 3D (except for some low res background flowers).

    But yeah those polygons add up.

    heh, it wouldn't surprise me if Sega redesigned Sonic for DreamCast just so they'd have to render less polygons.

    This is the first time I've been excited at the thought of a Sonic game since I was a kid. I hope whoever is making this knows a thing or two about level design, ie, not a bunch of speed boosts/hold right and jump once in a while. I like being able to choose if I want to speed through a level or explore. The colors in that Studiopolis Zone look like something out of Chaotix.

    Does anyone know if GHZ and other old levels are actually going to be a part of the game, or is it just some POC for the beta/trailer?

    No, it's unbiased analysis. The only fanboyism is people who claim that Hyperstone Heist and Bloodlines are actually as good as their SNES counterparts.

    I'm actually excited for this. I want to buy it, play it, possibly enshrine it.

    ...But I probably won't. Because to play this awesome 90's-style game, I'll still have to go through 2016 technology. Which means one of two things.
    1) Buy the PC version, which will probably not be on physical media and may require the use of "Steam", which I am familiar with only as something that comes out of a teapot.
    2) Buy a modern console which I have absolutely no interest in, can't really afford, and probably can't even hook up to my ancient TV.

    Still...really good news.

    Re-imagined, as the trailer states. You can find gameplay videos of both stages shown in the trailer, and there turns out to be a whole new upper area in GHZ, hence the Emerald Hill Zone twisting road segment shown in the trailer.
