You can expect descriptions of enemies, level layouts, tricks and glitches, and guides for finding all the collectibles. There are a total of 256 pages.

SEGA and Paramount Pictures have made the new Sonic the Hedgehog movie official. The film will debut in the United States on November 15, 2019, with other territories to follow.

Neal H. Moritz (Fast and Furious series) from Original Film Inc. will be producing. Jeff Fowler will be directing. Also on board is executive producer Tim Miller (director of Deadpool and owner of animation and CG production company Blur Studio).

Once you’ve pre-loaded a game from the eShop, you’re locked in to the purchase. There’s no way to cancel the pre-order prior to release. Because of this, Nintendo is now facing heat from the Norwegian Consumer Council.

PressFire obtained a letter sent to Nintendo in which the Council asks for clarification on how to cancel digital pre-orders or create a way to do so as soon as possible. As Polygon notes, Nintendo’s current policy goes against the 2011 Consumer Rights Directive that grants “a higher level of protection for consumers … in their own country or elsewhere in the EU.”

When we last heard about the Sonic the Hedgehog movie’s tentative release date, the film was planned for 2018. However, since then, the movie rights have shifted from Sony to Paramount, and now it appears the release window has been moved back. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Sonic the Hedgehog will be opening November 15, 2019.
