Sonic Chaos 16 Bit Remake

Sonic Chaos is Back!

Not long ago Sonic HQ reported that Sonic Triple Trouble was getting a 16 bit remake. Now A+Start has announced a fan remake of the classic 8-bit SEGA Game Gear Sonic game, Sonic Chaos. Based on the current style of 2D classic Sonic games inspired by Sonic Mania, Sonic Chaos updates the 8 bit visuals of the original and adapts a play style more closely resembling the classic 16-bit games.

According to the team, the game has been in development for almost an entire year, of which 7 months was spent building a brand new engine from scratch. Yeap, you read that right; Sonic Chaos uses a brand new engine, called Crimson Engine, and with it the team has strived for classic Sonic gameplay accuracy.

Footage of unreleased SegaSonic Bros. surfaces

A lost Sonic arcade game was recently found by a collector who goes by the name ShouTime. After a couple years of teasing with off-screen photos, SegaSonic Bros. has been brought to the California Extreme arcade expo for play. This puzzle game was initially planned for release in 1992, but never quite made it out the door.

The mechanics seem fairly complicated. Blocks of four, comprised of three colors -- red, blue, and yellow -- fall from the top of the screen. The goal is to surround blocks with a like color, like a lasso, which clears said cluster of blocks. The bigger the color loop, the more blocks cleared, which means bigger points (and more electricity zapped into Eggman).

Sonic stars alongside two original characters other Sonics. It's unknown who Red Sonic and Yellow Sonic really were, or if they even had names. You could infer that they're Sonic's brothers based on the title, but, who knows. It's not like they had many characters to work with in 1992.

The game was designed by Fukio Mitsuji, designer of the iconic Bubble Bobble. It received a location test in Japan, but ultimately failed to catch on and was shelved.

It was previously hypothesized that SegaSonic Bros. was an early version of the isometric arcade platformer SegaSonic the Hedgehog (red and yellow do match the color schemes of Mighty and Ray). But, over the last few years, we've seen that was far from accurate.

Other Sonic arcade rarities have recently been found and dumped. Simple "games" such as Waku Waku Sonic Patrol Car, SegaSonic Cosmo Fighter, and even the SegaSonic Popcorn Shop have been released and are now playable in MAME. Hopefully this one gets the same treatment eventually.

Sonic Mania: Encore DLC Review

Nearly a year after Sonic Mania launched (our review of which is over here), a new DLC package has just dropped. The "Encore DLC" brings new characters, new modes, and remixed levels. Combined, they form Sonic Mania Plus, an enhanced version of the highly-regarded game that has a healthy blend of old and new.
