Sonic Superstars: canon timeline location revealed

When it comes to canon, for SEGA lore is their stuff: here’s how Sonic Superstars fits into the timeline of the saga in blue

Now that a few days have passed since day one, it is natural to ask “when” the events of Sonic Superstars: to reply to us on time line is none other than the leader of Sonic Team, Takashi Iizuka in person. Not surprisingly, the title is chronologically placed after Mania (to which we dedicated a brief re-review in the Advent Calendar last year) and before Adventure. The game brings back Fang the Hunter (formerly “Fang the Sniper”), who made his debut in Triple Trouble for the Game Gear, as part of Eggman’s team alongside the debuting Trip. The latter marked the return to the scene of Naoto Ohshima as character designer, after an absence since Knuckles’ Chaotix.

No glaring errors in the timeline: here’s the “when” of Sonic Superstars

What makes Iizuka’s statements interesting are the apparent attentions towards the lore of the series, of which we did not suspect in the slightest. “The classic series began with Sonic 1 in 1991, and Sonic Adventure marked the transition to the modern series in 1998. So, in terms of timeline, Superstars is after Mania and before Adventure. When we develop a new game, we always make sure that the story fits well with the lore.” In recent months, SEGA’s job offer for a “lore expert” intent on monitoring what happens during the games caused a sensation. A peculiar occupation in the development of a game, we agree, but which undoubtedly contributes to the choral mosaic of the title.
