We haven’t heard much about the Sonic movie as of late. However, Hollywood Reporter has a new scoop about the project. The site says that Paramount will be producing the film after Sony Entertainment put it into turnaround.

Moritz, executive producer Tim Miller (the director of Deadpool), and director Jeff Fowler. Toby Ascher will also be executive producing while Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons will serve as co-producers.
As for the original goal of the movie, it remains a mix of live action and CGI. No further details have been announced.

It seems the SNES Classic has a couple more secrets to unveil. GameXplain has uploaded a video showing off multiplayer features of a couple of games that aren’t as well-known or easily accessed. As the video demonstrates, the SNES Classic’s main menu explicitly indicates which games are 2-player compatible and can even be grouped together as such.
However, through inputting a cheat code, players can unlock a 2-player mode in Yoshi’s Island. EarthBound also has a secret 2-player mode that can be unlocked simply by connecting a second controller.
While not as fully-fleshed out as a standard multiplayer game, these are still fun features to include. Watch gameplay of these two modes below:
