Sonic Adventure DX & Sonic Pinball Party screens - rocketdarkness 1/17/03
|From Planet Gamecube:|
Sonic Adventure DX
Sonic Adventure was Sonic the Hedgehog's first 3D game on Dreamcast, a pretty major event. Combining speedy platform gaming with exploration with characater-interaction, Sonic Adventure allowed you to play as Sonic and his many friends in a game that was simply huge. As of yet, there are no details on if/how much the game will be updated for the GameCube.
Sonic Pinball Party
Do you like Sonic? Do you like pinball? Well Sonic Pinball Party is set to offer up a host of different pinball levels based on Sonic characters, and NiGHTS is making a special guest appearance.

Upcoming Sonic anime series - AstroboyX 1/15/03
Okay, here's the deal. I go to art school and we get some cartoon industry magazines. In one, I found this promo for the Sonic Anime TV show coming this fall. The NATPE is a bunch of TV execs who get together to have what is kind of like E3 for cartoons. This is a poster for the execs (4kids entertainment, Warner Brothers, etc) to sell the show to an American distributor. It's animated by Tokyo Movie Shinsa who did everything frrm Ducktales and Muppet Babies to Batman the Animated Series and Bionic Six. Apparently Shadow's back and we see Cream and Cheese as characters. I blurred out the contact numbers so that they don't get overwhelmed with phone calls from everybody, but a nice guy at their U.S. offices said that the show is still in development and they don't have any production sketches or footage yet. If you're in the US and can find a copy of Animation Magazine's February issue, turn to page 19. You can check out animationmagazine.net if you want to get a February issue.
Note: Do not confuse this with the possible Sonic movie as they are two entirely different things.

New Dreamcast Bundle Released in Europe - True Red 1/13/03
Sega of Europe has issued a new Dreamcast bundle. Up until recently, the package included a Dreamcast console, one controller, one VMU, Virtua Fighter 3tb, Metropolis Street Racer, and Jet Set Radio. MSR and JSR (not JGR- Sega of Europe stayed with the Japanese title) have been dropped and replaced with Confidential Mission and Phantasy Star Online along with the Dreamkey 3.0 which is still available for free from SoE.
Both bundles are still available. The older one is GBP 105 (about $150) and the newer one is GBP 100 (about $142). Considering how difficult it is to come by new Dreamcasts these days, this is a fantastic deal. You can pick them up from most online European stores however, some, will not ship outside of the EU. Be sure to ask before ordering.
A possibility of fans being involved in the Sonic movie - Project Blue Gale 1/10/03
|From Ken Penders:|
How Would You Like To Be In The Sonic Movie?
This one is being batted around, but if all goes according to plan, we could end up with a contest where some lucky guy and girl will each win a small part in the Sonic film.
Not only that, but we may also do a runner-up contest where a character designed by a fan may end up in one of the Robotropolis segments. Needless to say, any drawings submitted would become the property of the production, waivers would have to be signed, especially if we wanted to include them on the eventual DVD release.
At this moment, do not submit anything at this time. I will post all the information once all the details are ironed out. This is more or less to let you guys know the fans are being listened to, and we do want to involve you guys where we can.
Oh, yeah, one other thing: Amy Rose, Rotor and Antoine do appear in the script. They're just not major characters this time out.

|The long-rumored Sonic Adventure 1 remake for GameCube is finally happening, according to *Nintendophiles*.
News: Sega Confirms Sonic Adventure DX For 2003
Sega has once again updated their schedule today. Sonic Adventure DX, originally on the Dreamcast, is being confirmed for the GameCube in 2003. This remake should have the same type of changes that we saw for Sonic Adventure 2 Battle. While it is being called a port by Sega, it should include many additions and changes. Sonic Pinball Party for Game Boy Advance is now being named for 2003 as well. With both games being scheduled for the summer of 2003 in Japan, it is safe to assume they will also arrive this year in the U.S.
That makes the grand total of new Sonic games for 2003: 4! The games announced so far are: Sonic Advance 2, Sonic Pinball Party for Gameboy Advance, and Sonic Adventure DX, and an unknown Sonic title(To be announced in May by Sonic Team)for the Gamecube(Possibly other systems, as well). Looks to be a very grand year, indeed!

Sonic Foundation is back - Sonic Boom 1/1/03
New Sonic at E3 - Lothar Hex 12/27/02
Sonic Team are in for a choc-a-block year ahead, according to the team's gaming genius, Yuji Naka, in the latest issue of Dorimaga.
With speculation running out of control these last few months, the head of Sonic Team has finally let the hedgehog out of the bag promising an all new Sonic game for the E3 show, to run between the 13th and 15th of May .
In addition to this, the team will also be making their presence felt on the PS2 at last, with a new game to be announced for the machine. What form this game will take, though, is a mystery, with even Naka unclear. Expressing his desire to work on another format, having worked on the GBA, GameCube and Xbox last year, Naka himself spoke of the possiblilty of the award winning Phantasy Star Online coming to PS2 (following on from the Dreamcast, PC, GameCube and Xbox versions), although didn't rule out a new development.
One thing it definately won't be, however, is a sequel to Saturn classic and hardcore favourite, NiGHTS. The team have told Nintendo Dream magazine that there are still no plans for a follow up to the game.
