this is a nice looking anniversary toy but my god, is this a hybrid of modern and classic? If so, is it a hint as to what we're to expect by the end of this game? Some kind of universes merging deal where we're left with the best of both worlds?
Classic Tails has recently been shown alongside of a modern model. Since we now have classic Sonic and classic Tails, will we bee seeing classic representations of other characters?
Aaron – For the most part, classic Sonic and classic Tails are the only one’s you’re gonna see. There’s not much I can go into after that but stay tuned. Classic Sonic and Classic Tails fans should be pleased

What was so appealing about the classic designs of the three main characters (tails, knuckles, sonic) was the specific shape language. That is to say,
sonic - circle
tails - square
Knuckles - triangle

They were reflective of their personalities to a point and looked beautifully recognizable in any silhouette.
The modern knuckles design we have now has done away with that triangle motif entirely. His snout has been shortened, his body elongated, his skull rounded to the point where he hardly retains any of what made him so radically different from sonic in the first place. They also have decided to bluntly blow up the size of his fists. The Sonic Adventure design isn't quite as bad, but what we have now is completely trash.
