This is kind of a pointless subject to talk about, but I feel like it needs to be addressed. Over the pass few months I noticed something strange….I notice that the Boom Universe has kind of been overtaking the regular Sonic Universe. Now before anyone starts or says anything, let me explain. Since Boom’s release…we haven’t really gotten anything “main Sonic” related released or announced really. Yeah we get Sonic Runners but…look around. The Boom Universe has mainly taken over. Just, what I think was, a month ago Sonic Boom Fire and Ice was revealed…then as me and a lot of other fans were waiting, we expected something main Sonic related to be leaked next…well no. Then Sonic Dash 2 Boom was announced…then the return of the Tv was leaked out (thank god!!)…not to mention they’re in the main Sonic comics too, well is sticks anyway…. not to mention she’s in the Rio Olympic games also… What do modern fans have? Well…Sonic Runners was released…the Rio Olympic games were announced (though i don’t really count that)..and the Anniversary leak was-oh wait.. no the 25th Anniversary logo was leaked. Not really much for the main sonic franchise..
In all honesty, I feel like Sega’s not really balancing the two franchises. Last Time I checked, they made the Boom franchise for another audience to get more fans into Sonic. Now I get that they need to advertise to do so; however they can’t just leave Main Sonic out of that too. Where’s the new Sonic toys? Where’s all this new things for main sonic that boom Sonic’s been getting? There’s still a huge huge crowd of people who love and adore main Sonic… so what’s left for main Sonic and the many fans who love this Universe?! There’s all these releases for the Boom Universe and…practically nothing for the main Sonic Universe. This makes no since. Ever since Sonic Boom’s games were a failure, Sega’s been keeping quiet on the main Sonic games. First of all, why is that?! I mean, it wasn’t main Sonic that bombed last year, that was Both the Sonic Boom games Rise of Lyric and Shattered Crystal. I understand if they’re keeping silent for the anniversary game, but I feel like, and I’m sure a lot of another fans part of the main sonic franchise, feel left out in all this Sonic things happening. Sonic Boom stuff is everywhere and there’s little to almost nothing for main Sonic…. Now I have no problem with Sonic boom. It’s a fantastic Universe and i love it so much…but it’s the fact that Sega’s kinda focusing more on the sister universe over the main universe that’s been leading the franchise for a long time now and that’s where most of the fans are…Where’s the main sonic leaks and other sonic stuff Sega!? You have two different audiences here. You can’t just please one side and do nothing to the other. I mean Main Sonic is where you get most of your business from anyway! Yes, please the Boom side BUT you need to please the other side that you know is feeling like Sonic is hopeless…Sega you gotta give us something. You’re kind of leaving your main audience in the dust…..(i guess the 25th anniversary logo is a big sign of hope)
This is just how I’ve been feeling and what I see is going on..but don’t take my word for it. We just have to wait and see what happens….
