Dragon God for the win.

Mitsuda's seemingly dropped off the face of the industry, is he still composing?

Nomura had stated previously that what he started with KH1 and continued in KH:CoM, he would finish in KH2. Then again, he also said that as long as the KH series continues, Sora will always be the main protaganist.

Surely, some kind of compromise must be reached.

I think they're going to gloss over the "intricancies" of Shadow from now on. No point in drudging up that mess again.

Hm, sounds like <i>Vagrant Story</i> all over again. Doesn't help that Dragon Quarter is considered a dungeon-crawl.

That wasn't Tseng in the movie, that was one of the new Turks from Before Crisis. Dude, it's Tseng. It is <b>so</b> Tseng it's not even funny. The new members do not exist past the point of Last Order, the title alone suggests hunting down Zack was their final mission. Never mind that none of them ...

At least Bleu was good enough to actually join your party in BoF2. And you can see Karn and Bo keeping house on an obscure island.

Always knew those two would get together.

Basically, 3 hours for the tutorial portion of the game (before the title screen is displayed) and a possible 8 hours per world according to an interview with Nomura. The running joke right now is that at least half of those hours will be spent watching in-game cinemas unfold.

Hm, s'allrite.

Is this the same guy who played to a small crowd at E3 earlier this year? I remember a video where the audience would name a game series or franchise and the guy would cut loose almost immediately, no prep time or anything. He played a few Sonic songs if I recall.

The gummi ship sequences are still in the game, providing the bulk of the travel between worlds. From what trailers have shown, it appears to have been sped up significantly.

Yuda: I'm not actually involved with the 15th Anniversary title. I'm involved in something quite big, so I can't really say what. And what, pray tell, could be bigger for the Sonic Team than a next-gen Sonic title that promises to bring the much-maligned character back from the brink of mediocrity?...

I would've prefered her to simply have a non-gun projectile attack, simple because they've never done that in a 2-D sonic game before. Plus the pyrokinesis does - you know, lend itself to tossing fireballs around. Yeah, shame they didn't include something like that for Blaze at some point in the ga...

I can see that happening.

They might even consider giving the first GBA Fire...
