Sonic RPG screens

Sonic RPG screens

This isn't strictly Wii-related, but since we've got so many Sonic fans here (at least 2), here are some screens from DS title Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.

It's an RPG game, complete with turn-based battles, developed by the infamous BioWare. The story sees Sonic chasing seven chaos emeralds which have been stolen. Knuckles also gets mysteriously kidnapped somewhere along the way.


Sunny times.


Slugs and flies may break my bones.


I'm here on my own.


And don't come out until you invent something.


I can't let you in with those shoes.

This game is expected to release this winter.

Interesting, looks like they are turning away from the normal "run-at-fast-speeds" format to a more "explore-around" one. Looks like playable characters so far are Sonic, Amy, Tails, Rouge, Knuckles and Big. Also from looking at the battle screen, it would seem Sonic, Tails and Knuckles can only battle with their hands (and maybe feet) and Amy has her hammer as always. But I wonder what "FP" stands for?

FP stands for fatigue points Aeth. Also, this game looks interesting, and before people start to say it, Sonic is NOT ripping off SMRPG, any popular franchise can make an RPG, not just Mario.

"And don't come out until you invent something" ha! I heard about this game many moons ago. It's either going to be a big flop, or a huge success. This game doesn't seem to be a Sonic game, an RPG? Not Sonic.

Most ds games you post WW are all Sonic games.

I like the second last caption. Tails is the best, he should be a character in brawl.

Looks like an extremely interesting game, there's supposed to be a new character, he looks pretty cool. I'm totally getting this. I noticed they have FP, did they get that from the mario rpg's? Oh and for those who don't like Big, Nintendo Power specifically said they would give a few extra IQ points. Not that I hate him.

Looks interesting, if it can compete with Mario & Luigi Partners in Time then I'll be impressed.

This doesn't look interesting. Super Mario RPG was fun, so they must be copying.

Hmmm. 7 gems have been stolen and need to be won back. Original plot.

Wii Rox & Super Star Kirby are right, I looked through the internet and found out it is "Fatigue Points". You use these "Fatigue Points" by "rhythmically tapping and dragging on indicated locations on the touch screen" during battles in order to perform special attacks. Rings are going to be used as currency (now who didn't see that coming?), you can use team attacks, you use the stylus to move like in Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, and the world is split into two acts: "standard" Sonic area and a "Darker world". The plot seems simple, Sonic is on vacation when Tails call him and tells him Knuckles were kidnapped by a group called "the Marauders", and the Chaos Emeralds are missing (AGAIN!). Eggman won't be the main villain, but he will still be a bad guy. Also there is a female character called Shade who's role is unknown at this point. Sounds like a typical Sonic game to me, nonetheless still interesting.

Infamous? Bioware? You're being sarcastic, right?

Actually, only 6 of the emeralds have been reported missing.

I agree with Wii rox it's about time we got an rpg for sonic (although we really need a sequel for mario rpg too).

It looks a little too similar to mario rpg.

Rpg battles are too time consuming. The last thing you want in your life is to go up and touch an enemy. Then you start building a stage and start filling it with an audience and you start taking turns punching each other until someone falls down. Then you hop off the stage and go touch another enemy and spend 3 hours taking turns beating each other up when you can just boot them out of the way.
