Project Needlemouse[edit]

I added the latest revealed Sonic game, Project Needlemouse, to the template. I have placed it under main series, however I can't confirm whether it matches the criteria mentioned in the documentation. It has not been recognized as a successful main series game (due to lack of information), not a handheld game and most likely a console game since it will be 2D HD gameplay, Sonic features as main character.

Semi-protected edit request on 17 October 2016[edit]

Re-add Lego Dimensions under Related -> Video Games. It was removed from the entry for being "one of a large number of characters", but that's no different than his appearances in Smash Bros. or Segagaga, which are also listed. Given the amount of Sonic content being added next month, it's a notable appearance.

Also, should Sega Hard Girls be added to the template as well, since Sonic and Eggman make appearances in multiple episodes? (6, 7, 13, and the upcoming DVD-only 14th, to be specific) (talk) 17:47, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

I fully supported the Lego Dimensions inclusion, and do not opposed that addition. The SHG connection is pretty weak though, I don't believe that warrants a spot on the template. Let's see if there's any more input on it. Sergecross73 msg me 17:54, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
If it helps illustrate the argument any, the SHG appearance is more substantial than that of Wreck-It Ralph (which was also on the template until removed by whoever pulled Dimensions). Quick rundown: Eggman shows up in the last 2 minutes of episode 6 to cause trouble; Sonic appearing is the "To be continued" moment. Episode 7 is wholly focused on Sonic and the main cast fighting Eggman (including footage of StH1 and SA1). Episode 13 ends with Sonic leading all the other Sega characters in saying goodbye to the cast. And trailers for 14 show Sonic and Eggman involved, though not in what capacity. Aside from that, there's Sonic statues and memorabilia scattered throughout the show in every episode.
I can take or leave its inclusion, but at the very least, it's a fairly meaty appearance in a Sega-produced product (compared to, say Green Hill's cameo as an arena in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax or a sketch on Robot Chicken), so it's probably worth at least a discussion IMO. -- (talk) 18:11, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
