Kess Entertainment Teases Sonic Speed Battle, a New Modern Sonic Tabletop Game



Quote
To clear up any confusion, Sonic Speed Battle is indeed an original arrangement of words distinct from "Sonic Battle," "Sonic Battle: The Search for the Chaos Emeralds," "Sonic Adventure 2: Battle," "Sonic Battle Racers," "Sonic Speed Simulator," "Sonic Speed Cards," and "Sonic Forces: Speed Battle," all of which are real game titles that I did not make up.
Despite the teaser not providing any details, the Sonic Adventure 2-esque logo and the use of Sonic and Shadow art does heavily imply that the game will focus on those two characters.
Earlier this year, Kess launched "Sonic Roll," a stylish classic-Sonic themed push your luck co-op dice game. Although ...

Yeah, this one was made by the creators of SRB2Kart and SRB2 Top Down.
Ah, so an original Sonic racing game separate from SRB2?
They are cute indeed.
The Tiktok video animation series were made to sell these toys.
Kinda like He-Man and G.I. Joe back then.
The cartoon was made to sell the toys.
Kind of like what Sonic Boom was made for, but Sonic & Friends taking a minimalistic approach.

I'm not one for Tabletop games (unless they can be found here) but always interesting to learn how you can take a character who promotes high-speed gameplay into something as still as tabletop board games.

I mean, I achieved something of the like, but I've yet to finish and submit it to the mentioned workshop.

Yes.

Very minimaslistic indeed since it's only targeted for Japanese fans. Also no games and comic/manga version of it.

But this one is physical, right? Not software?

Google Play’s official Twitter gives us a totally accurate history refresher on Sonic the Hedgehog



Quote
It all began with the above post claiming to show us Sonic as he got “older and older”.
As you can see, this tweet was labeled with a community note telling us that the entire thread is inaccurate and does not, in fact, show Sonic getting older and older, while giving helpful links to Wikipedia for context. We’re off to a great start right here.
Take a seat and say goodbye to a couple of brain cells as we journey through Sonic’s aging process through the eyes of Google Play. Read the article once you’ve steeled yourself.

Super Sonic joins Sonic's Lego collection when the three new sets are released on August 1, 2024!









Quote
The third Sonic set coming to the Lego store on August 1 is Tails' Adventure Boat.
No, Tails hasn't been forgotten in this latest Lego drop, and the set he'll get this summer is an elaborate one. Made up of almost 400 pieces, alongside the boat you'll need to build is a parasailing Sonic and a Green Hill-style platform to dock next to that includes a Lego recreation of a shield item box featured in the original 2D Sonic games.
All three sets will be available to buy through ...

I've seen some of the TIkTok animations. All I would ask from it is if they released widescreen versions of the videos for YouTube than just keep them on TikTok. I don't see how hard that would be.
But this one is physical, right? Not software?
Sonic Speed Battle? I presume it's a physical product.

Unless you're on about my Sonic RPBG then no, I don't see the point in wasting cardboard on a physical copy only I can play. I'm making it for Tabletop Sim.

It wouldn't be hard but now that Youtube has youtube shorts / reels that has smartphone format it'd be faster to just put it as it is.

I see. I once had Sonic monopoly. Was that counted a tabletop game or not?
