SEGA on the lack of "stylized characters" like Sonic, what they learned from working with Nintendo

The following comes from a Kotaku interview with Sega’s Shun Nakamura...

“Besides Nintendo, there really aren’t that many character-type games in Japan. As graphics got better, I think game companies have moved away from stylized characters to more realistic ones.

When we collaborated with Nintendo, we saw how carefully they managed their characters. Several years back, we drew up rules for how Sonic should be portrayed. These guidelines were created to strengthen the tone and identity of the character.”

I still feel like SEGA struggles a bit to understand what makes Sonic Sonic. I understand the desire to push forward and try new things, but when SEGA does that, they seem to lose some of the qualities that make Sonic enjoyable. Here's to hoping Forces can change that.

Doom is 720p whether docked or in handheld mode

Yesterday we got confirmation on Doom running at 30fps whether you played in docked mode or handheld mode. Today we find out it's the same situation for the game's resolution. You'll be playing in 720p irregardless of the game being docked or in handheld mode. Seems like Doom really is squeezing as much as it can out of the Switch.

I have to admit, I don't know all that much about this series. I do know that Inti Creates is involved, and that's enough to interest me. I love most of their games, so I need to give this one a shot as well!
