Today on Twitter SEGA revealed that they will be bringing back a character that is rather popular in the Sonic fanbase. They will be bringing Metal Sonic in as a rival character in Sonic Generations. You can see his new character design to the right, which I’m sure fans will either love or hate depending on their preferences.
SEGA had little else to say about what role Metal Sonic will play in Sonic Generations besides that he will be “one of the rivals” in the game. Which means that hopefully we’ll see some more popular villains coming back to make an appearance in Sonic Generations as other rivals when the game is released.
