We’ll be kicking the first episode off with an overview of the recent Nintendo Switch (NX anyone?) trailer and the news that followed. Think of it as a recap of sorts. I will delve into my thoughts on why Nintendo is going in the direction it is and what it means for the future of the company.

This Sonic Fan Game is a mix of Classic and 3-D

A game for both classic and modern Sonic fans

Fan games are the result of hard work fueled by the sheer dedication a person or a team of people have toward a specific franchise. Of all the fan games I’ve seen, most never fail to impress. They embody exactly what the fans themselves would like to see, and sometimes with a twist from the creator.

The Sonic franchise has had many, many fan games in the past few years. But this new Sonic fan-game, made by Youtuber The Great Lange, does what few have attempted before. It mixes elements from modern and classic games, making a sort of classic-modern hybrid. Essentially, it’s Classic Sonic in 3-D. The Great Lange recently released the game, called Sonic Utopia, as well as a reveal trailer:

 

 

Sonic Utopia includes many different abilities present in past games such as the spin dash, the homing attack, and the fan-favorite super peel-out. From what it looks like, it’s very focused on momentum, being able to scale high walls by picking up speed. Plus, it seems to run as smooth as butter.

Who knows if SEGA will have it taken down or allow it to keep getting support, but one thing is clear – it’s a very high quality project that obviously had a lot of time and effort put into it.

On the subject of official Sonic titles, there are two on the way for next year, with trailers for those games as well. The classic continuation titled Sonic Mania is set to release Spring 2017 and the mysterious modern installment, dubbed Project Sonic 2017, is set for Holiday 2017.
