"NFTs and Ken Penders"
I don't like how those two things are used in a sentence.

The fact he had the name SONIC in all capitals just tells me he knows full well he regards them as characters and concepts he took for himself, not characters and concepts he claims he has creative rights over which makes him even more of a smarmy git.

The fact "Evil Sonic" and "Anti-Knuckles" is on the list is revolting because that would be the equivilent of me claiming rights to "Evil Mario". Evil Sonic and Anti-Knuckles are just cliché evil-double characters.

Ironically, I was looking forward to Scourge's upcoming comic and was dissapointed it was cancelled due to Anti-Penders backlash. Which means if RUSH! won't make a quality comic for Scourge then Penders will. And knowing how much of a pitiful rat-hearted discharge of a weasel he is he'll probably depict Evil Sonic as his oppinions with Sega.

RUSH!'s only fault was asking Ken Pender's permission..
Penders doesn't have anything worthy enough to do with Scourge's development in comic anyway.

Legal action is costly for individuals, that's why it's usually only used against a very big corporate, in hoping to get maximum gains that could cover the legal battle cost before. Tantrum is the safe way~

I guess, Penders is somewhat of a risk-taker though, but I guess he wouldn't get much out of RUSH!.

Fans united to press Sega to put Portuguese on Sonic Frontiers



Quote
Brazilian Sonic The Hedgehog fans are joining forces on social media to deliver a message to Sega’s ears.
The message is clear and very simple: they want the next game in the series, Sonic Frontiers, to have at least PT-BR subtitles. If so, this will be the first blue hedgehog game to have Portuguese subtitles.
Many fans and influencers are turning to the hashtag #SonicFrontiersPTBR to join the discussion on Twitter and the movement, which started this week, is already gaining a lot of traction.

Most Brazilian people's first console was Master System
and Sonic was one of the best game on the system.
So I'm sure SEGA knew they loved him or at least had a nostalgia with him.
Kinda weird really that they hadn't put Portuguese language before..

But thankfully SEGA listened to them this time ....

Full List of Language Supported for Sonic Frontiers is Confirmed
Including Brazilian Portuguese Subtitles

"Good news!

Talk about ahead of the curve. Though given these calenders will probably use 2020-2021 art I dunno why.

To make their work simple, just use what already existed.

Play Sonic on TikTok With This Collaboration Effect



Quote
TikTok is collaborating with Sega and Dreams Come True on a Sonic the Hedgehog game effect.
If you use the effect, you can use your face to control Sonic as he runs across the screen.
In the background, Dreams Come True’s “Tsugi wa Se~no de! On The Green Hill – Masado & Miwasco Version” plays.
This is a version of “Green Hill Zone” with lyrics.
Here is an example from the official Sega TikTok account:
