Now then, let's get my Sonic fan stuff out of the way. There's some good news and some possibly-not-so-good news. The good news is, Metal Sonic is going to be playable in both episodes of Sonic 4 and the release dates for episode 2 have been set in stone for the US as "May 15th for PSN, May 16th for LIVE, later May for PC, June for Android and July for Windows Mobile."
Also in the Sonic department, there's a rumor going around of the possibility of a series reboot in the somewhat-near future. While it would keep some of the franchise's core concepts, the new games could apparently consist of open-world zones akin to the 3D Mario games instead of the more linear ones the series is known for. Another possibility is the implementation of toys or some other kind of physical merchandise relating to the games, similar to the new Spyro game, Skylanders.
In other news, both Theatrhythm Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts 3D have finally been given released dates for North America. KH3D will be in stores on July 3 while KH3D will be released on July 31. This gives me a lot of time to get hyped up about how amazing KH3D looks and how silly Theatrhythm looks.
And to wrap things up, anyone remember that Circle Pad Pro Nintendo announced for the 3DS a while back? It was supposed to come out in the US exclusively at Gamestop last month, and I guess a few people got a hold of it then, but now their site shows a release date of July 2 for the bulky peripheral, which stinks because I was looking forward to using it with the new Kid Icarus game. Anyway, hopefully Nintendo will re-release it a little earlier in some other manner, but it looks unlikely at this point.
And that's about all I have to report. Questions, concerns or anything else to say? Let me know in the comments section. Content Hedgehog, out.
