GN 1.0 / 2.0

The latest Nintendo Power has a bunch of info on the Sonic RPG from Bioware. Thanks to SonicKris for the heads up!

- water color/hand drawn graphical style
- 4 party members
- character specific abilities
- 11 party members total
- Characters known thus far: Sonic, Tails, Amy, Knuckles, Amy, Rouge, Shadow, Big the Cat
- Full stylus control
- split team at certain moments
- rings = money
- no random battles, enemies can be seen
- turn-based fighting. Make attack selections for all characters before the animations continue
- special attacks play out like Elite Beat Agents
- team attacks
- “Fatigue Points” instead of MP
- ability to choose which attributes you level up
- purchase/level special attacks
- Rough story breakdown: Sonic is on vacation from defeating Eggman 2 years ago. Gets a call from Tails that Knuckles has been kidnapped by a group called the Marauders, and that 6 chaos emeralds are missing. Eggman not the main villain. But Bioware wants to make him a creditable bad guy again. Something about a “twist” between Eggman and Sonic that goes back to the earlier games.
- 2 acts: Sonic-themed areas and darker worlds
- Remixed classic tunes
- “fully animated cut scenes”
- simple dialogue trees
- Side quests
