SEGA Reveals Sonic 4 Episode 2 Concept Art, Proving They Can Have Original Ideas

Well this is a surprise! SEGA Blog has revealed concept art from Sonic 4 Episode 2, and this time it’s not a palm tree! From the sound of it, each Friday two pieces of concept art will be revealed. One on the SEGA Blog and one on SEGA’s Sonic Facebook page. I have to say, I’m impressed! Sure they’re not jaw dropping, but they’re original. A blue tube thingy and a cute hermit crab badnik. What a nice way to end each Friday, keep ’em comin’ SEGA!

Edit: Now that I look at it, I realize that the blue tube thing is probably that spinning gimmick from Marble Garden. Original? Maybe not, but I loved the sound they made when you bounced on them.

    The badnik isn’t very original either, while the design is a bit different a very similar badnik appeared in Sonic CD:

    • Yeah, I do see the resemblance. Little shell creature, spikes on top. But I do give them credit for making it more different than the past Sonic 4 badniks. I hope we see the end of Bubbles.

    He shall be known as “Pokeball face”.

  6. Well, considering Pokemon debuted in 1996, and Sonic 4 takes place after Sonic 3 which released in 1994, that places Sonic 4 at around 1995, pre-dating Pokemon. So really, a pokeball should be called a hermit crab head.
