When Paramount released its first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog earlier this year, fans of the game franchise were not thrilled with the protagonist’s character design.
In fact, they were downright horrified by a monstrosity with human teeth and eyes, long legs, and little resemblance to the hero they knew.
Now, a redesigned version has appeared in a new trailer, and he’s looking a lot better.
Opening with a shot of the Green Hill Zone made famous in the game series, the latest Sonic the Hedgehog trailer immediately shows off Sonic’s new appearance, with a zoomed in shot of his eyes.
Though there is still a slightly bit of fur separating his eyes, they almost form into the one giant oval fans recognize, and the irises have a taller shape that is more cartoony.
His mouth has been colored a darker shade that better fits his blue fur, as well, and the human teeth have also been removed.
