Also I haven't given up on other playable characters, I'm still waiting for the "Advance 5" return.
Nope, from my point of view, SEGA's just getting started on re-introducing other characters. I'm judging from Tails being in Sonic CD and Sonic 4 Episode II, and a teensy bit from the Sonic Adventure 2 re-release. It's a small thing considering that they aren't new main 3d games, but it might show the direction of where they are going. People are going to get tired of solo sonica as it's the same plain concept over and over again with normal Sonic and an alternate Sonic. I'm already tired of it, I haven't felt the need to even go out and buy Generations for the time it's been out.
Instead of an alternate Sonic, how about Knuckles? or Tails? or Amy? Anyone else? for once. The addition of Tails in Sonic CD was well welcomed, and that may be an understatement.
As for implementation, be it not forced like in Episode II. The player should be able to choose the character he wants to play as instead of being thrown in with both. Mandatory co-op was the "easy way", as the level design had to be not built around two different characters unique moves but their moves as a whole but that detracted from the overall experience. Let's hope they don't repeat the mistake for Knuckles in Episode III, the idea means nothing if it isn't implemented well at all.
On topic of how many characters. Personally I don't mind but I suppose it would be good to not overdo it so we don't end up with another 06, perhaps keep it to 3 or 4? Again, I don't really mind but it'd be nice to get out of this Solo Sonica burrow the series has been trapped in for so long.
I support Sonic CD DLC Desert Dazzle and Final Fever.
Nope I believe blaze and jet will get their chance one day
