Perhaps I should elaborate. I've been keeping up on some of the Sonic series' new as of know and earlier in the year. Here is what I know:
1. How would you react if I told you that a Sonic the Hedgehog movie, aimed for a PG-13 rating, possibly rumored to have a Wii U version of the movie planned to released in 2016, as some people claim?
2. This next one may be a little...unnerving. Also, this fact is not just for Sonic, but SEGA in general.
How would you react if I told you that, uh...well... SEGA of Japan's CEO coming forward, and saying, that they have betrayed their fans for the past TEN YEARS?? Here is translated paragraph : "I've been talking to the employees that we should start putting serious consideration, into quality from this point on. I believe that if we can't make a title with proper quality, it would be better not to release anything at all. I believe we can a title with proper quality, even in Europe and North America, where it has been more of a focus on schedules. We did our best to build a mutual trust with older fans of SEGA, but looking back, their have been some titles that have (partially) betrayed that trust in the past 10 years."
Getting this, he didn't single any title in question, even as they listened to their recent purchase: A gaming company known as Atlus. Futhermore,
"I bbelieve that we can make a title with proper quality, even in the West, for those who like to play Japanese games."
So, there's that.
3. This next fact is somewhat odd. How would you react if i told you that Sonic Runners has had 4,000,000 million downloads.
4. Lastly, are you aware about Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice? Well, how would you react to it being delayed to next year?
I can understand how you feel to the 2nd bit of news, and the fourth. But the first bit is in my opinion, very exciting. But still, I think it gives people confidence in SEGA, as well as this series. But, as much as I felt maybe that people were already aware of what's going on, and feeling the need to withhold it, I still felt that you needed to know. So, my apologies if any of this upset you.
1. This movie will the first of a planned film series. We will basically be seeing one movie per year, if they continue to roll forward with the plan.
2. This movie will be done as a collaboration between SEGA and Sony. It will be financed 50-50 between SEGA and Sony Pictures Entertainment. The animations will be done by Marza Animation Planet, as they are a part of the SEGA-Sammy division.
3.This will be a hybrid of CGI, and live action.
4.The Production team is aiming for a PG-13 Rating.
5.As of now, the only confirmed characters to be present in the movie aside from Sonic himself, is Dr. Eggman. However, more may be present as well.
6.A trailer has not been released yet.
7. This film will NOT be a continuation of Sonic Boom, but going back to the modern series. (Don't get me wrong, I think Sonic Boom good and all, but really can't say much because I haven't been consistent with the series. I do think the show quite good, though.)
8.The movie is rumored/expected to be released in 2016, as well as a Wii U tie-in. (Personally, I think this is a long shot, as games based off of movies don't have the best reputations.)
We’re reaching out to a few of our top communities, hoping to get you on board with the migration to the new infobox markup. And we have tools to help!
‘’’Why we’re doing this’’'
Simply put: Most current infobox structure translates very poorly to mobile experiences, and indeed any device that doesn’t use desktop-style displays. On desktops and laptops, they often look amazing. The problem is that Wikia’s traffic is trending mobile.
We partnered with the Wikia community to create this new markup to make sure that your hard work can be displayed on mobile devices (as well as any future technologies) easily and without any new coding conventions. It’ll take some effort up front, to be sure, but we’re here to help, and the work you put in now will pay for itself tenfold in the future.
‘’’Tools we’ve designed to ease the process’’’
We’ve enabled two new features on your community. One is a tool for migrating the “old” infobox code to the new markup. It identifies templates on your wikia that look like infobox templates and places a box on the right rail of the template page. When you click the “Generate draft markup” button in this box, it opens a new tab containing a draft of your infobox using the new markup.
The second is a new feature on Special:Insights that will highlight which infoboxes on your wikia have not been migrated to the new infobox markup. It’s fairly intuitive - you can click on the infobox title link itself to see the old markup, or simply click the “Convert!” button on the right, which performs the same action as the “Generate draft markup” button.
