First Look at Shadow The Hedgehog In Sonic Movie Sequel Art Style

We now know what Shadow The Hedgehog will look like in the Sonic The Hedgehog movie sequel, thanks to a character artist’s amazing work.

Last week, character artist Eman Pelletier took to Twitter to share a take on Shadow The Hedgehog in the 2020 movie style. “I wanted to try my hand at what Shadow might look like in the Sonic Movie Style,” the artist wrote. Feast your eyes on the full piece below:

The piece aims to connect itself with the established movie art style, even using a riff on the first movie’s logo for the “Shadow The Hedgehog” font. Shadow looks edgier than ever, ready to take on or team up with Sonic in a movie sequel.

We previously wrote about why we don’t think Shadow will be in the Sonic Movie sequel, but seeing Pelletier’s art has us thinking twice. The dark Hedgehog fits perfectly in the realistic art style of the movie and would be a great foil for Ben Schwartz’s happy go lucky Sonic.

 

Do yourself a favour and follow Eman Pelletier on Twitter to hopefully see more Sonic concept art get posted!

What do you think? Will Shadow be in the Sonic The Movie 2?

Retro Review: Sonic Adventure

Oh Sonic, how the mighty have fallen.

Once the Sega superstar with attitude, able to go toe-to-toe with Super Mario, and now, well, have you seen Sonic Boom?

These games are remembered fondly, and with each new 3D iteration of Sonic, many cry out for the series to return to its roots with a new Adventure game. But are these games really worthy of such praise, or is our nostalgia playing with our memories? After returning to these games recently through the magic of PSN, I can now say it’s the second. Definitely the second.

5 of the Most Absurd Video Game Ads Ever Made

Let’s face it. With the advent of video reviews and live streaming gameplay online, it’s been years since any publisher has truly relied on a TV advertisement campaign to sell their game. Still, that doesn’t change the fact that for decades there was no better way to sell your game to kids than with a totally rad 30 second TV commercial or magazine ad. Fortunately for punks like us who get a kick out of critiquing things that were never meant to be taken seriously, a handful of those game ads are so mind blowingly strange that we had no choice but to compile a list to laugh and scoff at until we all feel a wee bit better about ourselves.
