Yeah but Goku is always obtaining some new level of power, like how much can he go to? They just keep adding more because that's what the audience wants.

That's the difference between manga and comic book characters.
Manga characters always getting stronger wiyh each volume.
Although sometimes comic book characters did that (Iron Man became Supreme Wizard, Kingdom Come Superman is immune to kryptonite) but that's usually far in the future that hasn't happened yet in the current run.

I wouldn't know because I never played Knuckle,s you're strong, isn't it a bit overkill to get a mech involved?

"I just want to look cool!"

Compared to past McDonalds Sonic toys, these are a bit underwhelming. Especially compared to the LCD collection.

May be because it's a regional thing so the budget wasn't big. I couldn't find these in my country and there are none too in US.

I think Spider-girl and Fly the Vampire were predecessor-prototypes to Rouge and Shadow.

My guess she would had been called "Spin the Spider".

That is possible. That means they're not just changing the characters but swapped the genders too.

New fan games?

Yes

Angry Hedgehogs on the Way? Rovio and SEGA Tease Upcoming Crossovers and Games at RovioCon 2023



Quote
"We're still dating."
That is the metaphor Shuji Utsumi (SEGA President of Consumer Games) and Ben Mattes (Rovio brand SVP) jokingly went with at RovioCon 2023 to tease the possibility (though not immediacy) of upcoming Rovio collaborations and games following their recent acquisition by SEGA, as reported by Mobidictum.
mobilegamer.biz reports a slightly more gung-ho take on Utsumi and Mattes' dating joke, suggesting that Rovio may have a Sonic crossover coming soon, and is working with SEGA on new games. Utsumi cites other SEGA IP that could see benefit from this mobile push, such as Yakuza or Persona. This would be part of Rovio and SEGA's larger transmedia strategy with...

‘Sonic Dream Team’ Interview – Sonic Dream Team will have post-launch content.
Studio Creative Director Dan Rossati on the Game’s Vision, Cream and Rouge Being Playable, Platform Choices, Working With Apple, and More








Quote
TA: What led to Sonic Dream Team being an Apple Arcade exclusive rather than on all consoles PC?
DR: When Apple Arcade launched, we were delighted it brought about the conversation of getting a true 3D Sonic platformer into the lineup. Having worked with Apple and the Apple Arcade platform previously for Sonic Dash+ and Sonic Racing, we knew that Sonic Dream Team would be a great fit for our next game on iOS. We can’t wait to see fans, both new and old, hop into Dream Team and the franchise as a whole.

TA: Are there plans for post launch content updates like other Apple Arcade games?
DR: Yes definitely, we’re shaping said plans right now.

TA: What should players expect in terms of replay value or the post game in Sonic Dream Team?
DR: Packed around the main story and beyond, there are a lot of missions and some very cool collectibles to unlock via challenges. The levels were made for exploration, so players will only find some things in the first few passes. As you unlock the characters in the flow of the story, you’ll be able to get to new areas and find different routes, too. The game’s structure is designed with replay value in mind, so it should feel ...

True, I guess it's difficult to keep characters interesting and relevant if they're old enough to have long-spanning continuity. Which is why the occasionally Flashpoint to wipe the slate clean and start afresh.
"I just want to look cool!"
Where you even get a giant mech like you?
May be because it's a regional thing so the budget wasn't big. I couldn't find these in my country and there are none too in US.
I'll look out for them if they ever come here... but there's no McD's where I live but my best mate form my old hometown will let me know.
That is possible. That means they're not just changing the characters but swapped the genders too.
I didn't think much about gender, given I regard the spider former-Rouge and Fly former-Shadow.

For Fly, it looks like they had a gritty grimdark idea in mind for him... kinda reminds me of Disney's Gargoyles. But they probably toned down the grimdark when they settled for Shadow.

As for the spider-girl, sex-appeal was obviously in mind. In HD versions of her posters, you can see she had bigger tits than Rouge.

I imagine Rouge came along afte rthe spider with the sex appeal more toned down.
Yes
Nice!

Just like Archie Sonic comics back then ...

Eggman. He built a lot of them.

Still prefer Rouge's design eventough she's toned down.

Nice!Is it actually made of metal?

I think it's not considering the price isn't more expensive than the usual.

Yeah. And now Scourge is Surge... or something like that so that's one way to keep them fresh.
Eggman. He built a lot of them.
He builds stuff to kill them with. I can't imagine him giving a lender, especially to Knuckles.
Still prefer Rouge's design eventough she's toned down.
Even by SA2 when Rouge had a more sultry body, she was more modest than the rack this spider-girl has in this poster. But yeah, I prefer Rouge the Bat over spider-girl.
I think it's not considering the price isn't more expensive than the usual.
Would had been interesting I guess, a metal rubber ducky.

Good for them. With all that clout from The Game Awards it's still good Frontiers is getting recognition.

So watching the videos, given I can't play the game. It's truly something. On one hand I don't like the "acts within an act" layout and I find the designs more bright and gaudy. Makes Colours and Lost World look more toned down.
