Sonic fans hate the unveiled movie poster!

It was announced some time ago that a live action feature film of Sonic The Hedgehog was being made. Just this week, a motion poster was unveiled and some notes from the production team. Even though we only get a silhouette, stylistic changes to Sonic’s design are apparent, which has been met with negative reactions from fans due to many factors such as the changes to his shoes, the much more humanoid body and the lack of gloves.

A few other lowres images have been circulating the internet but have yet to be confirmed as final/official designs. However we do get a much better picture of Sonic’s face and how they handled his colouring in the poster below which is rumoured to be the pre-production pitch artwork.

These three posters have spawned a lot of art, memes and discussion over the last few days. Fan reactions have not been good, so it will be interesting to see what future marketing has in store and if a “realistic Sonic” can ever win them over.

Aside from Episode Ardyn, Final Fantasy 15 DLC cancelled!

On the 2 year anniversary stream for Final Fantasy XV, it was announced that future DLC packs for Aranea, Lunafreya and Noctis have been cancelled. Episode Ardyn which is in the middle of development, will still be released in 2019.

So why did this happen? Unfortunately there has been some staff changes within Square Enix, plus the sales of XV did not meet projected targets, which has resulted in the remaining DLC chapters being discarded.

However, let’s end a good note! In addition to Episodes Ardyn still being on its way, if you also love Final Fantasy XIV there will be a collaboration event. Final Fantasy XV characters will meet a Miqote girl who asks them to help her defeat Garuda!
