Sonic returns for Super Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U ⊟
Watch him make his entrance here. Also headed for the game’s roster (we forgot to post about it): Toon Link! The game releases in 2014, which, as you can tell from the second row of GIFs above, is not the Year of Luigi.
Here is the Sonic Lost World trailer
Not gonna let myself get sucked into the Sonic cycle — just gonna leave this here and let you guys talk about how it maybe looks fun or it reminds you of Sonic X-treme or blah blah shitty friends or good god why is there already so much fanart porn for the green lady.
Here is an image that maybe shows what the portable version of this 3DS/Wii U-exclusive looks like, or maybe it’s not real. Maybe none of this is real, this news, this blog, you or me. Maybe we’re just badly drawn fanart porn on Tumblr, a scroll away from someone seeing us and our shame.
[Update: False alarm, here are some 3DS screenshots]
3D Sonic the Hedgehog coming to eShop
Sega’s 3DS series of remakes for its classic games will bring an enhanced edition of the original Sonic the Hedgehog to Japan next week!
This release includes nice extras like the spin dashing that you can turn on or off, button remapping, normal and CRT modes, and the ability to switch between the Japanese and Western versions of the game to experience their differences. You can even set the audio to emulate the original Sega Genesis or the Sega Genesis model 2, and adjust the stereoscopic 3D to emphasize either depth or pop-out effects similar to Super Mario 3D Land.
I’ve no idea why Sega hasn’t brought its 3D series to the U.S. yet…

Two-button Street Fighter does not sound fun (from what I remember, Mortal Kombat for Game Boy was straight-up basura), but these old sprites overlaid into real-world environments would be a dream to see on handhelds.
The artists behind the strips you see here include:
- Brandon B.
- Geneva Hodgson
- Sam “Hidalgo” Logan
- Tyson Hesse
- KC Green
- Nico Colaleo
- Ashley Davis
- Anthony Nedroid Clark
- Marlo Meekins
I hope this renaissance of game series-specific zines (e.g. Zelda Zine, Ghost Pokezine) never ends. I love this.
Stop lying, Sonic.
It’s way cruel to fill your younger self’s derp-ish head with false hopes and dreams that will never come.

24 copies of Sonic & Knuckles in MEGA LOCK-ON, by @waffleman. It works! I will always remember where I was when I saw this. We are all different people than we were before this.
Hello Kitty the Hedgehog, the result of a collaboration between Sega and Sanrio, which promises more items of this cute nature. Sega will make this plushy available at its amusement centers in Japan later this month — the companies intend to bring their mash-up products to other countries some time next year.

I would have been fine ignoring Sonic & All Stars Racing: Transformed, the new 3DS/Vita/360/PS3/PC racer releasing late this year, but then TSSZ dropped some (likely untrue) gossip that the game will feature Ristar and Vectorman as playable dudes. O_O
Other new characters: Vyse (Skies of Arcadia) and Gilius Thunderhead (Golden Axe). Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing didn’t do much for me, but I’m keeping an eye on this.

Sonic the Hedgehog being a total creeper behind Hatsune Miku at a recent event. Quit being a creeper, Sonic.
Ten GIFs of Sonic the Hedgehog running like an idiot, sparked off by an animation from Zac Gorman and a call by Nedroid’s Anthony Clark (click for larger images).

- Tiffany Liau (my favorite one!)
- Rafaella Ryon
- Mike Holmes
- Pasquale D’Silva
- Ashley Davis
- William Gibbons
- Emmy Cicierega
- Caroline Ramsey
- Anthony Clark
- Zac Gorman
There are like 20 billion more of these, and I unfortunately can’t share them all, but I like these the most.

New Sonic shirts by Cospa. Sure, that Sonic Generations shirt looks like an especially expensive custom airbrush job from the mall, or like one of those polyester button-ups with an all-over Goku, but I kind of like it! Do I like it ¥6,300 ($82) worth? Heeeeeelll no.
The other shirt, with the clever text design, is much more stylish — and also cheaper at ¥3,045 ($40). Keep in mind if you get one of these, though, that everybody’s going to know you like Sonic.
