Yesterday Sega posted on their official blog an update about Sonic Boom, introducing a new character to the game. Sticks is a jungle badger who has spent most of her life living alone in the wilderness. She’ll be joining the core franchise characters Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy on their adventures. Her character design is reminiscent of Tarzan, which makes sense given her backstory. According to the blog post, Sticks is the most primal character in the Sonic universe, using her animal instincts and sharp survival skills to her benefit. Her wildness means that her social skills need plenty of work and she’s not the most trusting individual. Full of outrageous suspicions, Sticks’ instincts often prove to be accurate. While the concepts of sharing, compassion and friendship are foreign to her, Sticks has a good heart and a genuine desire to get closer to her new friends, particularly Amy, who helps Sticks adapt to civilization. Sticks and Amy quickly become best friends, with Sticks willing to go to extremes to protect her new pal, a quality that will play out through new Sonic Boom content. Her eccentric character adds an endless amount of humor and surprise to the Sonic team. What do you think of the new character design? Are you excited for Sonic Boom? We expect to see more of the game at this year’s E3. local_offer Nintendo SEGA Sonic Boom wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo shares up 20% since Switch launch What's your dumbest death in Breath of the Wild?

Mario Aww! 🙁 Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog but I sure she will be in Wii U PS4Rocks @overlordror:disqus Thought this would fit for Mario cart 8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AkgJZGspCM ZeldaFan83 Wii U Daily always seems to be lat on their news posting. I read this a few days ago on other gaming sites. Shane Michaels Anyone for Mario Boom? http://cdn.destructoid.com//ul/270139-header.jpg Blue Hernandez Maybe if Peach’s bewbs were bigger. J_Joestar But Amy’s Boom design isn’t exactly stacked. Maybe if they end up having a SB Rouge then the artist can add a Daisy based off her. URFTBOUND4LIFE . SHE’S 12! What 12 year old has big boobs anyway. What is wrong with you people? Checking for Sonic characters is creepy and wrong. Shane Michaels She’s, 13, now. And if Sonic’s age can be considered 21, then Amy is also about 18, 19 now. So you see, never mind. This is a stupid conversation. Also, you don’t know that many 12 year olds, do you? URFTBOUND4LIFE . Being as a grown man I try not to look at under age girls like that because I think that’s creepy I have 3 nieces in those age groups and younger and I wouldn’t want some 20 something+ perv looking at them like that. Also it’s a kids show/game.People need to leave your fetishes at the door. They’re plenty of other games that have big breasted women in them. This whole topic is juvenile so I just see myself out Shane Michaels Just to, clear things up, I am not a grown man. Still, though, I also try not to look at girls like that. And yeah, why they decide to go for the humanoid animal creature, rather than actual humans, is beyond me. Shane Michaels Well… Her name is Peach… Add an S, and… https://i.chzbgr.com/maxW500/2008670464/h837119E0/ Matthew Stapleton That….actually looks really cool! Shane Michaels Right? Everything is better with scarves. http://d2tq98mqfjyz2l.cloudfront.net/image_cache/1310597344544162.jpg fireheartis1 Haha and Tom Baker’s Doctor did it first. Plus I’m down for a good Doctor Who videogame that comes State side this time. Shane Michaels Eternity Clock was decent, and the Adventure Games would be nice for free. HorizonChaser There was that Evacuation Earth thing for DS & Wii. Wish they crossed the Pond. 😉 Shane Michaels Trust me, that one was a very bad game. Jackassassin It was said that some guys who worked on Uncharted are working on Sonic Boom. Sounds like they’ve got a thing for scarves. majora :D Luigi totally looks like Smooth McGroove That guy who hates Spike Why is toad so angry? Shane Michaels In the artwork this is based on, tails looks angry, because of personality. So, angry Toad. The exact irritation from Toads perspective is. Unknown. That guy who hates Spike …This is angry? http://wiiudaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Sonic-Boom-Concept-art.jpg?af4e70 Shane Michaels Yeah, actually. It’s subtle, because they have no eyebrows, only creases on their face. Toad looks angrier, but that’s the artist. ETMew2348 great MORE new sonic characters anyone remember when it was just sonic? Mario Mario: Remember when it was just me, Donkey Kong and Pauline? ETMew2348 meh that was for the best imagine Mario Kart with just 3 racers.sadly every new sonic character just keeps getting worst. Guest Yep. Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog Link: Remember when it was just me, Ganon and Zelda? Sdudyoy I already hate this character. C4 It’s okay. A cute chipmunk, or whatever. I don’t get the hate at all oO What I really want is those Chao creatures though http://i443.photobucket.com/albums/qq158/Chiva290791/SONIC/SONICCONCHAO.jpg Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog Totally agree with you J_Joestar It is like http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080321050301/skiesofarcadia/images/7/77/Aika.jpg and http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100706072743/sonic/images/0/0a/RushAdventure_Marine_pose.png fused together. Mario Funny thing, she does ressemble a bit to Marine the Raccoon. Shota yes joseph. anyways how is jotaro doing? Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog Who’s that lady? and I don’t mean Sticks and Marine J_Joestar Aika from Skies of Arcadia. Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog Never Heard of it. When was her Last Game? J_Joestar SoA came out for the Dreamcast at around 2000 and it was ported to the Gamecube in 02 i think. Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog Okay. gtosheex This didn’t make me want this game anymore than i did before… JeanPaul sounds like it’s going to have a deep storyline. watchin that voice… is just fucking awful discuss Indeed! What the hell where they thinking selecting that crappy voice!? watchin you gotta have a crappy voice with a crappy game/series Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog just wait until the Game is Finished Okay. I have the Same Problem with Roger as Sonic until Colors was out. J.r. Storms why are they adding new characters when they have older ones that they ditched to make more room for sonic? C4 I don’t see an issue. I suppose Sticks is a character native to the world – or at least a part of it that’s playable (the uh sticks? 😛 ) – in Sonic Boom. Vorpal Blade I am looking forward to this game.
