Okay has everyone calmed down after that surprise? No... take a few more deep breaths...
Now that I've had a bit of time to think about custom characters in Sonic it makes sense, for years SEGA has watched as fans create their own custom characters based on the franchise no matter how stupid or overpowered or convoluted they turn out, I am including my own idiotic creations in this (I was young).
So now SEGA have decided to capitalise on this by saying okay you like making fan characters? Here's a game that you can actually have your charecter play alongside Sonic. It's pretty much as close as people are going to get to being in the game with Sonic... and let's be fair there will be some that prefer that to real life. Now all SEGA has to deal with is complaints of why certain species 'x' hasn't been included, I do not envy them, they included hedgehogs but no foxes? THIS IS A TRAVISTY!... and so on.
On the flipside, gameplay trailer looks pretty fun combining the best of what we have seen out of the last few games and what sounds like a kick ass soundtrack, I'm looking forward to seeing more.
