Yeah.... I'm no sure what to think of this. Yeah, Nintendo generally makes decent games but at the same time they don't seem to know much about Sonic. I mean look at his move set in Brawl. They stated it was all homing attack-like moves because, as near as they could tell, that's all Sonic did... Yet there was a game released WAAYYY before that, on the GBA no less, that if they would have glanced at they could easily changed that: Sonic Battle. I mean, it's like the answer was right there. What other moves does Sonic have? Well let me see, oh, in this game he could do this, and this, and this.
I mean, if they don't know what Sonic truly capable of what can we expect of their knowledge of the rest of the cast? From what I can tell they know little about the franchise after the Dreamcast Era. 'Course I guess that makes since. After all why would they need to keep up on it? SEGA was no longer a competitor. Also I guess the whole Brawl thing wasn't all Nintendo anyway. I'm pretty sure they were just the producers of that game so really it was the dev teams that were clueless. But still, you can see where I'm coming from right?
The one bright side I do see to this: there is now actually a chance now, though very slim, of my one of my dream game to created... Sonic VS Mario. Please Nintendo, make this happen.
