Well that HUD certainly looks nice. Also the Death Egg saga seems to have happened at some point.

Infinite's theme song is out now (and sounds so much better than the main theme). Does this mean we'll be having character themes again?

I don't know about you guys but this trailer here showing bits of cutscenes with Infinite has actually made me genuinely hyped for this game instead of hoping it's just somewhat interesting thing to play.

I want to believe we're all supposed to look at this like an AMV from 2006 that used Linkin Park music. (RIP)

My opinions on this character -

    I'm guessing they fully intend this villain to be as edgy as possible. I mean, his song does sound like a song straight off the Shadow the Hedgehog Soundtrack, and his design is distinctly Sonic OC-based, same size as Sonic characters and same proportions.

    Embracing the goofiness would probably be the best direction since Sonic Mania exists for fans of the original Serie's style and charm. Fans of the goofy zany over-the-top edginess have a game to keep them occupied and make their own OCs.
    This game caters to the younger demographic, the other game caters to older, diehard retro Sonic fans.

I'm currently under the belief that Fist Bump is a song in past tense about the custom character and Infinite's relationship - the scene pictured above could potentially be the last time they met before Infinite betrayed them. For one, it would give the custom character a motivation to participate directly in the plot rather than being amongst the sidelines ala the military forces seen in the E3 gameplay trailer for Green Hill. Additionally, it makes the lyrics to the song a lot less awkward - beforehand, I assumed it was about the two Sonics, leaving the custom character as a third wheel. This also ties into Iizuka's statement waaaay back in about March, that the third character would be "very important to the overall theme and story of [the game]."

The lyrics of Infinite seem to tie into this as well, referencing a past confrontation - "And after all this time, you're back for more."

Other miscellaneous observations:

During the scene pictured above, the lyrics are - "I'll take what's mine, and start this war." - and immediately afterwards, a light is shown entering Infinite's chest. Remember Metal Sonic's plan in Heroes? I'm curious if this might be similar to that.

Shadow's eyes seem to suggest that he might be under some sort of mind control, explaining his being allied with Infinite. Additionally, both Metal Sonic and Chaos show signs of "flickering" and "glitching" in and out of reality at one point in the trailer - either they're holograms, or it's another symptom of being under Infinite's control.

After Sonic is kicked into the wall, the other villains seem to teleport, suggesting that the video was spliced together from two separate parts of the cutscene. Also, at that point, Zavok bends down and inspects the rubble as if he's looking for something.

Also, Shun Nakamura really has a thing for Sonic being thrown into walls.

Except if MatPat says that Freddy from fnafb is Ness, he wouldn't be wrong this time.

Nah, Sable's theory is sound.

Eggman seems surprisingly in control here.

Also, Infinite's voice is sexy.
