Footage of cancelled SEGA game set in the Sonic universe recently appeared online

Gameplay footage of a cancelled SEGA sport that was presupposed to be set in the identical universe as Sonic the Hedgehog has floor on-line – right here’s a clip of Astropede.

Segabits lately printed a report on the sport, in addition to a complementary video on YouTube, which you’ll be able to take a look at under. The very first thing I observed is that the eponymous Astropede seems a lot angrier than the blue hedgehog that grew to become so globally ubiquitous in his place. He should have know Sonic was all the time gonna go sooner than him.

“I need to proceed to proceed rapidly,” I think about Astropede saying rather than Sonic’s extra informal and way more beloved “Gotta go quick.”

Astropede wasn’t all the time offended although. In a number of the idea artwork unveiled alongside the brand new footage, he really seems completely happy. That was earlier than that hedgehog prick got here alongside and stole his thunder – stole his future. Simply look how cheeky his grin is within the image under.

“After the unique pitch to the executives at SEGA America, they gave us the go forward to make a playable model,” mentioned former SEGA artist Craig Stitt on the Sega Retro Players Fb web page. “Myself and Ken Rose went to work.You would possibly acknowledge the artwork as being from Sonic 2’s misplaced ‘Hidden Palace Zone.’ I figured because it didn’t get utilized in Sonic 2 I would as nicely use it right here and save a variety of time.”

“I additionally reworked the essential lattice within the artwork to create the artwork for the background within the first Astropede video I posted right here. In that case, I reworked the artwork signiicantly, however should you look you possibly can see the underlying nature of the sample is similar. I additionally used the artwork from Hidden Palace Zone because the foundational artwork for Sonic Spinball’s Poisonous Swimming pools stage. (clearly I actually appreciated that little piece of art work).”

In associated information, the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 theatrical launch has been scheduled for 2022. Actually, Sonic is operating rings across the silver display screen now whereas poor previous Astropede is simply frowning his manner by an unfinished construct of his game-that-never-was on a derelict Mega Drive. Unhappy.
