Sonic Adventure deserves a REMAKE
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
Hear us out, Sega. With over 25 years of Sonic, it's never better the time to relive the dream, the adventure!
As one of the main driving force of Sega's swan song console, Sonic Adventure marked our beloved hedgehog's big jump to all-new 3D. Fans who enjoyed the Genesis/Mega Drive titles saw Sonic and co. in a whole new light, brimmed with personality and excitement. It was a great time to embrace a cool, edgy pincushion with a passion for an all-new *ahem*... adventure.
"Long time no see!"
Packed with stages from loop-de-loop highways to lush locales heavily inspired by the Americas, Sonic Team stepped up their game in packing the game up full. With up to six playable characters and an interconnecting storyline to boot, each character offers new ideas for every Action Stage. Whether it's full-on speed as Sonic or fishing as Big, the game's got it all! Certainly, who could forget the soundtrack? From the title screen alone, the game has been hinting an adventure like never before from the very start.
"Ha ha ha ha! If it isn't Sonic!"
Sonic Adventure was once a hallmark of technical achievement demonstrating the capability of rendering vast environments at a speedy pace as well as the water effects possible on the Dreamcast. The game's homage in Sonic Generations further shows that there is an untapped potential of reimagining the game on modern hardware, possibly reaching closer to the goal that the original team has once envisioned.
"Hope you know what you're doing!"
18 years have passed since then. Sonic has amassed a... reasonable amount of friends with almost each new instalment. Together with a continuity less well-groomed than the doctor's moustache, things are bound to be confusing for newcomers. It would be fantastic for both new and old fans alike to re-experience a time when the Sonic series started taking off with full-on 3D. Aside from redefining the looks for the new generation, this would be an opportunity for tidying up the plot as well, perhaps even making it better!
"I must save Froggy!"
To conclude, we hope for a remake of Sonic Adventure for modern platforms, comprising of:
- stepping up the visuals and cinematic production
- retaining (or even reimagining) the soundtrack, preferably have Crush 40 make a return!
- streamlining each character's story arc to further improve cohesiveness
- optimising the existing (Adventure) controls
- keeping gameplay segments as close to the original, while having fresh elements to enkindle memories of all Sonic fans
- voice actors... we don't have a say in this, do we?
We would be more than happy if you can fulfil our wish, Sega. Please don't let us down!
