The lights are on
Today, Sega unveiled a new Sonic Boom character: the jungle badger Sticks. Sticks is a new addition to the Sonic universe and will play a major part in Sonic Boom as one of the core ensemble members alongside Sonic, Tails, Amy, and Knuckles.
Before meeting her friends, Sticks spent most of her life alone in the wilderness and still has plenty to learn about how to interact with others. For more about the new addition to the cast, watch her announcement trailer.

NUUUUUUUUUUUUUU SEGA! Stop adding more characters to a series full of them!
Well, I am glad to see that the creators for this Sonic title stuck to the creative method of choosing names for their characters.
Seems like this thread can be summarized with this:
[Fan rage intensifies]
What have they done to my childhood?????
Sonic better be fast this time. I will say it once and I will say it again: Sonic sucks at platforming!
It's funny because some of the side characters are one issue a lot of people have taken umbrage at in the past.
Bigs the cat!
what a grating voice acting choice
Well, that's the first design I can actually say I like other then the apathy I've been feeling about the rest. Also nice to see another new Sonic character that doesn't come across as kind of stupid like Shadow the Edgehog or Silver.
