Wow. You've sure come a long way. I can't think of anyone else who's more or less successfully assimilated after a start like that.

The Japanese version of the trailer sports new moonrunes in the beginning, wonder what does it all mean (among others there says "blackhole", "legend", "action", "speed", etc.).

New pics, including new looks for bike-type gear, the return of Shadow, and Blaze(!).

The new gears look delightfully queer, especially Blaze's Jet Ski contraption. It's, like, the extreme equivalent of a fanny pack.

Ha, "fanny pack". Mind you, "bum bag" isn't much better.

I was going to tell you to have sex with yourself, since I think jetskis are badass and plan to buy one, but that really does look like something a Disney character would make in his garage when the plot called for a motorized watercraft of some kind but the setting took place before they were invented.

And what's the deal here? Is that shit she's holding part of the level, or is that part of her gear? And is that a smoke detector strapped to her ass?

All in all, these screens don't thrill me, but I do need to remind myself that the original Riders was fun and I only stopped playing altogether because I was wrecking my controllers playing it. So I got Wavebirds and kicked the habit. So I'd like to buy the game again in a more controller-friendly medium, yes, but I'd like to get levels that were inspired by something other than the other side of used toilet paper.

Coincidence?

It looks like what Blaze is holding is the same ludicrously bizarre Gear that Rouge is using.

Which begs the question, what the hell is it?! It looks like someone tried (and subsequently failed) to crossbreed an airboard and a hang glider, for pete's sake!

The plot must revolve around ghost vampires. None of the characters have shadows or reflections.

No Ulala. : (

I wonder if this means Billy Hatcher 2 is in the works for the Wii, since Samba and NiGHTS are featured?

Best Eggman render in a long time.

Liked having Ulala in the first one just for the sake of seeing her exist again, but being a good four heads taller than everyone else kind of felt off.

Why are they not kind enough to put Metal Sonic in these games? Instead they give us Silver and Billy hatcher; I see this as further proof SEGA hates its fans, or they are utterly incompetent fools.

Those robots do look pretty cool though.

lol two cents:

SILVER: Interesting that they didn't give him any headgear like the other hedgehogs had.

BLAZE: Her jumpsuit reminds me of her uniform from AUX JEUX OLYMPIQUE...

NiGHTS: Using the JoD model, I see.

SHADOW: Wow, that's...actually a very nifty pose, imo.

AMY: What, they got rid of her old uniform?

EGGMAN: Nice render, but no pilot scarf = ;_;

ROUGE: Still using the same "sk8tr grrl prostitute" getup, I see.

CREAM: No changes here, but where's her pet kamikaze Chao?

BILLY: O__O Wow. Didn't see THAT coming.

AMIGO: No doubt this relates to the upcoming Samba Wii-make, the model looks similiar to the promo art that's been shown.

ROBOTS: More than likely the replacements for the two "generic badniks" from the previous game. They give off a vibe similiar to the badniks from SONIC 2006...but what's "Meteor Tech"? (No Metal Sonic = more sadness)

That is because he is his own headgear.

Don't look on Billy's wrist Dack.

IGN Insider videos They are somewhere out on the Youtubes as well.

Youtube Videos: (Probably better quality versions somewhere out there)
Sonic in Snowy Kingdom 1
Sonic in Snowy Kingdom 2
Sonic in Snowy Kingdom 3
Wave in Snowy Kingdom (Possible Story Mode Spoilers

I kinda doubt that there is a Billy 2 in the works. Mostly because there isn't a Space Channel 5 Part 3.

I can't quite understand why there are two generic robots in the game. Again.

To use as a multitude of generic enemies in story mode segments, again. How original.

The character line-up isn't that surprising although I do wonder what the long term plans are for Silver. After Sonic 06 ended up being a flop I didn't think we'd see anything of Silver again but he still seems to be making regular appearances. Those robots slightly worry me. It's bad enough they've put in 2 generic robots AGAIN but I hope the more menacing look of these robots isn't a sign that the story is going to be some kind of more serious angst-fest this time around. I'm glad to see there's still Sega characters but I would have rather they kept Ulala rather than add Billy Hatcher.
