At first, I held off on judging the redesigns of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy because, as a Sonic fan, I was used to new ideas being tried with the franchise. However, after seeing actual gameplay of the game at E3 2014, I knew that not only was the game in trouble, but Sega would be as well since they were developing a new TV show and merchandising based on this idea.

Not only that, but Nintendo has the deepest vault of cherished characters and established franchises to draw from.
Sega has released a pair of trailers for the upcoming Sonic Boom games for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
Of course this is a joke, but seriously look at Sonic Boom’s characters. Doesn’t Sonic look like Nathan Drake and Tails look like Sully? You can’t say you don’t see it!
