A Sonic and Mario fighting game seems like a good prospect, but I can't see Nintendo doing another fighting game when they've already got Super Smash Bros. The most I can see is more Sonic characters being included, though the fact that they chose not to add anyone in Wii U/3DS makes it seem unlikely. Not gonna lie, I wouldn't object to a new chapter of Sonic the Fighters with an expanded roster...

Sticks is an interesting addition-it makes it a little sad for poor Marine though.

I'll take Sticks over Zazz any day. Hopefully this frees her up for use in the comic one day if Boom ever fizzes out. Have to say this game is getting my attention more and more, haven't been interested in the Olympic games since the first one on Wii.

If we got a fighting game, even in the Sonic-only setting, it wouldn't be a sequel to any of the ones before, I can guarantee you that.

I can also guarantee that Mario and Sonic would never do that. Not only would having the actual Mario and Sonic casts fight against each other break the spirit that the agreement with the IOC is pinned by (yes, the IOC is largely why this series of games exists), it's entirely redundant in the face of the Smash Bros Series, as was said before.

I can't help but think that with 2 new Mario characters and 2 old Sonic bosses being playable, they needed suitable replacements and Zazz and Sticks fit the role while still being relevant.

If you use the Sonic Amiibo, you can play as him in the game!

It makes me wonder if they plan on making amiibos of other Sonic characters.

I mean if they can do Skylanders stuff, then Sonic shouldn't be outside the realm of possibility.

Skylanders is technically their characters in another game, and I think that's being handled by Activision's production process. For this, Nintendo would have to handle it directly, and I doubt they'd want to make so many character Amiibos for a third party franchise (especially when first party franchises like Star Fox won't get an Amiibo line for their latest game).

Big bump just to mention something I noticed in the latest trailer

Sticks seems to have a new design! Got me curious.

Also Wave confirmed, if anyone cares.

Wait so Sticks is getting mixed to the " regular " SegaSonic characters ?

She got her own Sonic Channel intro and wallpaper too. Sonic Team likes her, as they designed her in the first place. My fear was that they wouldn't "de-Boom-ify" her design though to fit with Modern Sonic better, but this might indicate that they WILL, which I'm happy for.

The bow has the same design as the belt, so I think it could be just a detail for that event, though I don't think that happened before for archery? Are there other differences with Sticks' design?

It's hard to tell. It probably IS just an Olympics-specific design like Amy's or Peach's, but I just like that they went through that trouble at all. Thinking on it better, it's probably just to have the holster for the arrows
