Good day everyone, Shadow here with another update.

First of all, I'd like to take this time to announce that both the Fleetway Sonic the Hedgehog comics and the Sonic Manga will be coming back to Scanf! I can't promise an exact date that it will return as we have to make some adjustments to the site first, but I'm sure this comes as good news for most people.

On to the next topic. Sonic Scanf had been publishing the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comics illegally and we have decided to stop uploading them. Most of our traffic were partly thanks to the Archie comics however, so we unfortunately will have to see many people go. But that's where you come in!

We would like to broaden our horizons a bit, and you as the audience can have a hand in what we will do. What new additions would you like to see on Scanf? What do you first think of when you go to a Sonic fansite? We are looking for additions both inside and preferably outside of the forums, so keep the ideas coming and who knows, maybe your idea will be part of Scanf's future!

We as the Sonic Scanf staff will take every suggestion into consideration and will take a serious look at them. Please be considerate and realistic in what you suggest. Examples like official playable Sonic games (not talking about rom hacks/fangames here) on an emulator are an instant no-go. And while we would love to bring every single one of your suggestions to life, we are still humans with fairly average skills in web development.

That's all for now. Be sure to leave your suggestions down below or at the appropiate forum topic!

Good day everyone. We at Sonic SCANF would like to inform you on an important matter that will affect the entirety of our site.

As many of you know, we have been uploading the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man comics on our website for fans to enjoy for free. Unsurprisingly, this is considered on almost any front illegal, as Archie Comic Publications Inc. is not making any profit from us. While we have been considering alternate methods to assist Archie, ultimately we came to a final decision. Out of respect for Ian Flynn and his team, we have decided to stop publishing the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comics on our website. It would be unreasonable for us to continue uploading them without permission while they are suffering.

What does this mean for Sonic SCANF? We will continue to be around for now, as the News, Forums and Gallery will still be available to everyone. However, we will suffer a massive dent in the traffic as many people only visited our site for the comics. None of us know what the future will hold for Sonic SCANF, but whenever we know something, we’ll be the first to let you know.

Therefore, we would ask you to please accept the statement and not request us to continue uploading the comics. It would be disrespectful to both Archie Comics and us, and our decision won’t change.

We hope to see you stick around. If not, thank you for your time and supporting our website.

The Sonic SCANF team.

Lost Hedgehog Tales

For those who have been reading since before the reboot lawsuit by Ken Penders, will remember the older storyline and how it had no closure to its storylines. Lost Hedgehog Tales is a recent release by Ian Flynn which continues the storylines left off from Sonic the Hedgehog #252 and Sonic Universe #50.

So far only one chapter out of confirmed 5 have been released and can be read here at Bumbleking.

For fans who were disappointed because of what happened after the reboot, or just want some closure, reading these might be a good and fullfilling alternative. Be sure to share your opinions with us!

As we are getting closer to E3, a gaming event in America, more games are getting announced as we speak. Sonic is also part of the crew, with the latest game in the Sonic Boom franchise, Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, speeding towards the 3ds this winter.

Unfortunately nothing else has been announced so far, but we're expecting to receive more news at E3. We will keep you informed about all the latest news and rumors regarding Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice.

The rumoured game Sonic Runners has been officially announced by Takashi Iizuka. The game is being developped by Sonic Team and is set for a release somewhere 2015. And yes, the rumours were true. Sonic Runners will be, yet again, a Smartphone game. It is yet unknown if it will be available on both Android and Apple systems.

Nothing else is known so far, but it's expected Sonic Team will release more information in January. Whenever more information is available, we'll update the news, so stay tuned!

 

(First of all, my apologies for not having been active with updating the news in a while. I just haven't kept up with Sonic news in the past half year due to other interests overswallowing it. Anyways, I'm back now and I'll try to update the news as frequently as possible!)

Soon after the release of Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric in the US a few developers independently published a large number of concept arts showing the different stages of the game creation. Of particular interest are experiments with characters design and level sketches. Sonic and Eggman could suffer much more serious redesign, and Lyric (the main villain of the game) was originally owl. In addition, Chao were considered, whose appearance differs greatly compared to the other games. Andrea Ritsu from Sonic Stadium has collected all these arts in one folder, and just in case we also reuploaded them to the gallery.

The last day of Tokyo Game Show 2014 SEGA held a live stream of Sonic Boom (known as Sonic Toon in Japan). They showed a few new cutscenes and Wii U/3DS gameplay video with the commentary of Takashi Iizuka. You can view the recoding below.

Also you can see the separate videos of Wii U and 3DS versions' gameplay in the full story.

Several of SEGA's games for the Android are being sold as a Humble Bundle. The games include Android versions of Sonic 4 Episodes I and II, plus Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, along with some other SEGA games such as ChuChu Rocket!, Virtua Tennis Challenge, and Crazy Taxi. As is traditional with Humble Bundles, more games are coming (usually after the first week). The bundle is pay-what-you-want for Sonic 4 Episode I, ChuChu Rocket!, and Virtua Tennis Challenge, but if you beat the average purchase, you will get the other games, including the extras that will be added later. All of the games are DRM-free, and every purchase supports the Child's Play, WaterAid, and UNICEF charities (you get to decide how to split the money between Humble Bundle, the developers, and the three charities). The bundle will end on September 3rd at 11:00 AM PST.

Last week, IGN had exclusive access to a new reveal regarding Sonic Boom. Many news regarding this trademark has been going around already, including a Cartoon and two games. These media will be joined by comics, made by our buddies Archie Comics!

The series will be written by Ian Flynn, and the art will be done by Even Stanley. Sonic Boom will be a completely original spin-off series, similar to Sonic Universe. As far as known, these comics will not influence the main storyline from the Archie Comics. Flynn had also promised us that they will reveal more info at the San Diego Comic Con, which will happen next week.
