Shadow Revealed as Rival in Sonic Generations

This morning in their official blog, Sega revealed some new artwork from Sonic Generations. This one being the 2nd rival in the game, the always angst ridden Shadow the Hedgehog. Shadow joins Metal as a rival character in the game. Who else will be on that list? I’d expect someone whose name is also a color.

  1. The next reveal: Big the Cat.

    Looking forward to this rival battle, thanks to it taking place in SA2 (hopefully during the post-Final Rush race).

    I’m actually a bit of shadow fan, well only in SA2 that is.

    BOOOOOOOH!!!

    He looks pretty angry. He’s clearly sick of shit.

    Japanese Color Symbolism:

    Red – Passion; gets the blood flowing more intensely.
    Black – Gloom, sorrow and depresssion.
    White – Symbolizes death
    Yellow – Symbolizes courage

    So angry.

    I actually like Shadow, although his character seems to keep getting butchered with terrible stereotypical depressing lines, (which kept me from playing with him in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing till this day.. I don’t wanna hear that shit!) but for some reason despite how the gameplay failed me of both Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic 2006, I gotta say I do enjoy his neutral/chaotic neutral attitude. I am looking forward to his return to the newer games.

    I actually thought that story-wise, he actually seemed to keep the *slightest* bit of attitude in Sonic ’06, something nobody else in that game had any of.

    But yeah, his character unfortunately became a big joke after Sonic Adventure 2. He should have stayed dead. I don’t mind him returning for this, though, as a rival.

  8. Well the great thing is that this will be SA2 era Shadow, pre-death, so I’m sure to like this iteration of him. No “Am I a clone? Where is black doom? I work for GUN!” nonsense.

    The thing I’m interested in the most is how he’ll react to classic Sonic.

  10. CosmicCastaway says:

    While he isn’t one of my favorite characters in the series, I do love Shadow and I’m excited to see he will be in this game.

  11. Upsidedown Fuji says:

    I honestly don’t care as long as it’s only Sonic classic and modern playable only. I am not a fan of his character but I don’t outright hate him.

    I do. guys freaking obnoxious. He’s an overpowered fan character.
