You can hear it more clearly in the no-vocal version all over the place, but in this one at about the 2:18 mark it's pretty clear. At least, the thing that I hear in it is pretty clear.
I hear something similar, but the Angel Island theme is still the clearest to me.

It's less a question of what we're hearing, and more a question of why (if indeed it's one of the two tunes we narrowed it down to). I find it interesting how SEGA keeps making these minor references to the classic games when the most recent games show that they've got no intention of ever returning to that portrayal of Sonic. I mean, we get classic toys, classic plushies, and Sonic whistling classic songs in trailers... all before getting a new game that has him saving princesses and becoming a werewolf. What's the deal?

I hate to breakup this current conversation, but I didn't think Sonic was considered "popular" enough to be used for anything not Sega related: http://youtube.com/watch?v=DdZu4CbouN8


And I joke not when I say this, the tune Sonic is whistling sounds like the purple coin levels from Mario Galaxy. Of course that is not what it is, but it sounds like it to me.

It does make it more extreme, though.

I dunno. It looks like they just recorded gameplay and then added speech bubbles.

I think everyone was afraid of openly stating that.

But thank you. Thank you for bringing it into the open, and into our imaginations. I'm going to go cry now.

Something about the way that came out made me lol.

What I don't get is why they're producing art right now, when we're not even 100% sure what his design's like. Kind of like when I tried drawing Shadow before I figured out what his design was, only to give him peach arms and a leather jacket with gold stripes at the edges.

Oh my, this really does look fantastic.
But I won't get my hopes up because they'd only be crushed by questionable gameplay decisions anyway. :(

This reminds me of those concept art sketches of Journey of Dreams.
Good stuff, but I still doubt there'll be good gameplay to go with them.

The game's doomed. He said in the interview they'll be bringing Sonic back to his roots for the 1000th time. really if they haven't managed it yet how many more chances do they need?

I'm curious about Sonic Team's infatuation with regal coastal cities.

And is this Yoshihisa Hashimoto guy the new Yuji Naka? Or Iizuka? Or one of them?
