Fan Made Video: 1994′s Sonic & Knuckles Recreated in 3D
BlobVanDam from youtube must be a HUGE Sonic the Hedgehog enthusiast. So much so, he decided to construct the video above, which is a 3D recreation of the Mushroom Hill Zone stage from 1994′s Sonic & Knuckles, for the Genesis.
Only one word can describe his video: gorgeous. From the detail of the forest, to the sun shining through the trees, it is a shame Sega can’t reproduce this for Sonic’s next adventure. Hell, I’d be happy if they just remade a Sonic title and had it look this attractive.
There is a catch however — this is NOT actually playable. Sadly, it’s just a video and not someone physically playing it in real time. BlobVanDam just animated over the actual game, using 3DS Max and Adobe After Effects. Although, it was time consuming because according to him, it took 2-3 weeks to complete the 47 second clip.
Hopefully Sega take a long look at this video, and maybe one day they’ll develop something that resembles it. But I’m not holding my breath.
