Just to note, confirmed playable along with Wave were Dry Bones, Toad (possibly? He was seen in the Footie), Ludwig and Wendy. This could be a very big roster.

The biggest evidence against a redesign is the fact that she still doesn't have gloves. That would probably be the firs thing they could do to "de-boomify" (or rather, segafy) her. After all, that was one element that all the Archie characters got.

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

Also Wave confirmed, if anyone cares.

How is this design different? The image is too blurry for me to tell.

In the first image I posted I couldn't tell the belt was part of a holster. this one is clearer on that though. Shame, I think the belt works well with her.

This one makes another alteration more obvious though- she's got bike shorts under the skirt now!

(I'm just desperate for any sign showing they're not afraid to redesign her if needed)

All the female characters are wearing shorts, so it's not that surprising. But it's a relief, especially since Sticks doesn't wear underneath in the cartoon

She's wearing a sporty outfit in a Sports game. Just like all the other female characters. It's not really a new design is it? :?

The Japanese Nintendo Direct had a new trailer that wasn't shown in the US version for some reason.

Thank goodness, I don't want to buy statues to be able to play as everyone.

So are you happy about Espio?

Oooh, CG art for Nega. Neat!

Plus, this will be the first playable appearance for him, Zavok, and Zazz, which is also cool.

I think one of the most interesting parts about this lineup is how many more characters they could potentially add in the future; another installment if not DLC. All of Team Rose is here, except Big. All of Team Chaotix is here, except Charmy. All of the Babylon Rogues are here, except Storm. The Deadly Six is represented, yet Zomom, Zor, Master Zik, and Zeena are absent. The Koopalings are represented, but without Iggy, Morton, and Lemmy.

That's not to say a 40 character roster isn't impressive enough.

I love how Sonic and Mario are trying to make Soccer and Golf look epic. :(hearty laughter):

Also Yay Rouge seems to be Playable.

Honestly I felt the need to log in and tell you guys that even though the roster is very big, the characters are limited to like 2 events each except for Mario and Sonic. So if I want to play boxing with Tails, I can't because his two events are Swimming and Volleyball. So basically you can only use each character for only 2 events.

I felt I should mention this because everyone seems excited about the notion of having multiple characters and doing a boxing match or something with a specific character when in truth, it can't happen because of how they made the game.
