Over the past few months we’ve had a wealth of information released about the upcoming Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric that’s currently in development by Big Red Button. While the initial character reveal only showcased playable characters like Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy, we’ve seen some additional concept art for characters that the player will encounter within the world. They’re all based on animals like the original cast and have some pretty unique designs.
According to developer Big Red Button, there are still two fan favorite characters left to be showcased that haven’t made an appearance yet. No hints were given as to who the characters might be, leaving it up to fans to speculate.
“We looked at the rich universe and history of Sonic and began to gravitate towards characters that best fit into our objective to make an epic adventure game. Dr Eggman was a very fun character to explore and created a really fun dynamic to Lyric’s straight man super villain vibe. Also there are two fan favourite characters that we’re excited to add.”
Which characters have yet to be showcased that you think could be added to the game? Sonic Boom is scheduled to release in November, so perhaps we’ll see more info on this reveal before then.
