For those who are unaware, I’ve been a Sonic fan for quite some time. Unlike many, however, I tend to think about other possibilities for the series, other than platforming. In my opinion, a Sonic fighting game would be great. You’ve already got a wide variety of characters to choose from, plenty of stage options, and of course, there’s a big audience to play the game. Not to mention potential for an epic story.
Seriously, think about it. There are rushdown options, traps, pokers, zoners, and every other character archetype you can think of. I think something great can be made here. Sonic’s only had two shots at this genre. The first one was too much of a joke to be taken seriously and the second was cool, though not perfect.
So, what are your thoughts? How would you do a Sonic fighting game? Would it be traditional? Party? 2D or 3D? Or would it be something else entirely?
If you dislike this idea, please be civil about it. Thank you.
