Last time, I put forth the argument that Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 deserves remakes. A special guest that you all may know, Bryan from Nerdword Entertainment, discussed with me what those remakes would look like.
Thanks again to Bryan for being our guest!
Last time, I also asked for your thoughts on the matter. Here are some highlights from the comment section.
1) How would you want to see the Chao Garden be expanded upon?
Mix the 6 chao gardens from SA and SA2 in the same game, make a quick way to give your chao your collected animals/chaos drives, full online functionality, the possibility of entering the chao garden with any character including the ones from multiplayer. -RAW
2) What could be done to Big the Cat’s stages to make him less boring? Should he get cut?
Platforming involving his fishing rod. Using it offensively, a grappling hook, and using it to swing around poles. In fact, I’m pretty sure I envisioned one big fishing rod platforming stage that leads to one small pond with only Froggy inside to basically just end the stage for every stage. -RAREFOIL
3) What developer/team would you hire to create these remakes?
Clearly Retro Studio, they have a golden hand for resurrecting the olds Nintendo franchise (Metroid, Donkey kong), Modern Sonic needs to be re-established on a good stable basis and I think Retro Studio is probably the most able to do it with a real chance of success. –NOVAREK
Retro Studios would be a cool pick. Unfortunately it’s very unlikely, as they are a division of Nintendo.
Thanks for your response! Hope to see you again in the next Assessment.
