Welcome to all fellow Sonic fans and visitors of our site!
Summer 2014 will mark one of the most important events in the history of Sonic fandom surrounding Russia and several other countries, which will unite all fans from our main communities!
We're going to hold a true fan convention called SuperSonicCon with everything that is usually part of such events. During the entire day under the roof, we will hold ceremonials, different contests, video game tournaments and the most important thing of all - Sonic fans from all over the world will be able to meet in a friendly atmosphere, communicate and have a really nice time!
Underneath are some of the planned features for the convention:
- It will be held in a large space enviroment, well-equipped and prepared for the realization of an event like this.
- Relatively low entry price/costs for participation in this event.
- We will be giving enough attention to cosplayers and fan art activists, make contents and organize stands, appearances and master classes.
- A solemn ceremony of awarding fandom participants in several unique nominations.
- Special Stage: We will be going on an afterparty nature trip outside of the official program. The nature trip can be seen as a trip outside of the city, where we will have barbeque and several other stuff.
The field of action is rather vast and if you wish to contribute to this event, you are able in any way. If you have any ideas that can help us with things such about the event itself or the type or format of the parts, then you can share them with us and we'll see what we can do with the ideas so you can take part of this events' organization!
We will regularly publish new information about preparations for this event. Follow the news at supersoniccon.ru and here in the news section of Sonic SCANF!
For all the owners of Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed on Steam, here is something very suprising. As hinted before, we were aware that there would be new DLC added to the game, but it was yet unknown who or what it was. Well, here it is guys, Simon Lane from Yogcast! Yogcast is the most populair UK youtube channel, and in co-operation with Sega and several other game developers, they are now live avaible with a livestream for Charity Special Effect. Even more good news is up though, which is more interesting for people who do not own the game yet or consider buying it:
- The game is playable for FREE until the 10th of December on Steam, so you can try it out. Aside from that, the game got a ridiculous 75% sale now! C'mon, you can't get it any cheaper than that!
- It is most likely that the game will also be avaiable through Humble Bundle. I consider checking that out first, as you might get the game for even less and even more games!
The DLC currently costs 4 euros on Steam, which is a bit off. But aw, c'mon, it's for charity right?
Sonic the Hedgehog has been released again, even though we lost count of how many times the game has been rereleased. However, there is a neat little addition to this version. The game is now released on the 3DS console, where the game actually has some 3D parts, including the backgrounds. For example, Sonic standing behind trees. It doesn't do anything but it is something new instead of just porting the exact same game. You also get the option to use the spin dash, but is definitely not neccesary. You can also play the international or Japanese version and adjust the screen to make it look like the old genesis days. I have to say, this is by far the best remake of the first ever Sonic the Hedgehog game we have seen so far. You can pick the game up at the Nintendo Eshop for $5.99/€4.99/£4.49!!
First of all, Happy thanksgiving guys! Several of us might have nothing to do with this event or never heard of it, but you can look it up Here.
For some years now, the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade has gained a new addition. First participating in 1991 but due to some disaster not seen again until 2011, a Sonic the Hedgehog Balloon joins the parade! The blue blur, along with a lot of other balloons, goes throught several important and big streets with many people participating on the event.
Following a small spoiler picture that has been released yesterday by Sega, it is now official. Sonic Dash has now made it's way to the the Android Systems. The spoiler itself didn't contain much, it was just Seaside Hill with an Android formed Sonic behind it. So it was expected that the game would be released sooner or later.
OCRemix's latest remix album, Sonic CD: Temporal Duality, is now out! From it's official description:
Temporal Duality is the 45th album published by OverClocked ReMix and arranges music from Sonic CD, released in 1993 for the Sega CD. It features 38 tracks arranged by 39 artists that cover both the JP/EU and US soundtracks, originally composed by Masafumi Ogata, Naofumi Hataya, Spencer Nilsen, David Young, and Sterling Crew. Sonic CD was unique from other Sonic games of the era due to its time travel system that allowed players to experience 4 variations of each stage. The game featured different soundtracks for the JP/EU and the US releases, which were both ahead of its time for video games, being among the first to have Red Book CD Audio. Spanning 3 discs and numerous genres, Temporal Duality is the fourth OverClocked ReMix album to pay tribute to the 16-bit era of the Sonic The Hedgehog series!
Among many others, OCRemix has also published remix albums for all previous games in the main Sonic series: Sonic the Hedgehog: The Sound of Speed, Sonic the Hedgehog 2: Hedgehog Heaven, and Sonic 3 & Knuckles: Project Chaos.
Sonic Lost World got mixed opinions by both reviewers and fans, so it's natural that you're not completely sure if this game might be the one for you. Well, fear not, because the demo of both versions have been released on their respentative consoles, so everyone can check them out and give their own opinions, eventually leading into buying the game or staying away from it.
To download the Demo, go the the respentative market (for example Nintendo 3ds shop) on your console, and you'll find the game under the tab Demo's. Have fun!
Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed, the racing game with Sonic and the crew, have been granted two awards! The game has been nominated four times in the Annual TIGA games industry Awards. This game has been nominated for awards including Game of the Year. However, it wasn't able to get the achievement, but there were definitely two other awards, called the Arcade game of the Year and Outstanding Leadership awards. Congratulations SEGA and Sumo!!
Another interesting point, is that people have been able to discover evidence of a new downloadable content. In the Steam Listing, there has been an ID found under the name of SteamDB Unknown App 264600, listed underneath the Metal Sonic and Outrun Stage DLC. It could be very likely that we will indeed get new DLC for the game. What it will be is yet to be comfirmed, and it is also unknown if it will be Steam exclusive or multiplatform, considering there have been several steam exclusive characters. However, those were released with patches, with the exception of Metal Sonic. So who knows what the DLC will bring us? Keep in touch and we will reveal it when we know it!
While many people might still have their hands on Sonic Lost World or are planning to get it, the next game has also been released for Europe. The Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games spin-off franchise has been running since 2008 and today, the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter games made it's debut. Alongside a nice Launch trailer by Nintendo, some new mechanics have been shown. Well, what are you waiting for? Mario and Sonic at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games 2014 is out now for the Wii U and 3DS!
On another note, please remember that North America will get this game on the 15th of November, while Japan has to wait till the 5th of December.
Yes, I'm not kidding. Zazz from the newly released game Sonic Lost World makes his return on that giant... Ball with a face thing to provide Sonic Dash players with a new challenge. The gameplay remains the same, except that you have Zazz to take on now while you're dashing and avoiding any hazards.
