In case you’ve performed the newest Sonic the Hedgehog video games, you may be questioning how life can get any worse for the blue blur. Sonic Growth: Rise of Lyric was universally panned by the press, and former efforts similar to Misplaced World and Unleashed did not fare a lot better. How might his popularity be dragged any decrease? Nicely, maybe with a movie. Not simply any movie although — a worrying “reside-motion and animation hybrid.” The undertaking, which is presently nonetheless within the planning levels, was revealed by Sega president and CEO Hajime Satomi in an interview with The Worldfolio.

“Sega Sammy Group is at present planning with Sony Footage to create a reside-motion and animation hybrid ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ film scheduled for launch in 2018. Like with this CG animation manufacturing, we want to broaden our enterprise into different leisure areas past what we’re presently concerned.”

Now, a Sonic the Hedgehog film could possibly be achieved tastefully. In 1996, a two episode animated OVA was dubbed and launched within the West as Sonic the Hedgehog: The Film. The voice appearing was horrible, however the animation itself was positive. Extra just lately, the Sonic Growth TV present has been fairly profitable (regardless of its horrible online game counterpart) and picked up for a second season. However it’s the “reside-motion and animation hybrid” half that has the alarm bells ringing. Keep in mind that kiss scene from the 2006 recreation merely titled Sonic the Hedgehog? Yeah, we need not see that once more.
