I think the issue here is more that Sonic and co. have to be meeting her for the first time in order for the plot to work. That in itself is a problem with the plot, since apparently none of these people have enough wit to come up with a coherent storyline featuring only the existing character base. Which is why we keep having Eggman be hijacked by the monster of the week every time, no one seems to be able to write a story in which Eggman actually creates some new threat instead of finding something in some ancient ruins or whatever.Frieza2000 wrote:That was probably their primary motivation, but they had existing choices that already have at least some fan love. Cream, Rouge, Blaze - heck, it already looks like a Marine redesign. Maybe it started that way? Maybe they wanted to minimize the number of characters they updated for fear of the backlash? That, or Pontac really thinks they can play off of this personality type and decided it would be too awkward to force any of the available pegs into that hole.
Wow I still care about Sonic huh
