Some people played a litlte bit of Sonic, some people didn't really know what i was about we just wanted to compare if there is a cultural difference. You let us know how different it is in your country. I think Sonic is pretty much.... not much..... known anymore. Yeah. Segaaaaaa.... unfortunately but they still include him in all the Olympic games so that's a good one. And uhm. Obviously Super Smash Brothers. Cause I play Super Smash Brothers. I can't really see any other new releases of Sonic but you might know more. There is gonna be a real life adaptation of the Sonic Movie which has been like... people have been debating about the graphics and stuff. But none of the people I spoke to here in Japan actually knew that there was a real life adaptation No one gave him that much thought. Which I found a bit of a shame but hey... Let's see maybe things will change once that movie is out properly. We'll find out. Do you know something about Sonic or not> Are there any game characters in your opinion, that are very undervalued?
