Just wondering. SEGA seems to be de-westernizing the continuities, removing terms such as "Mobius". Does that mean "Robotnik" no longer flies? I haven't seen Eggman introduced as "Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik" in a while.

Classic Eggman was occasionally called Robotnik in Generations.

Robotnik is still kept as his surname.

Judging from the thread it's in and which cartoon features characters from the comic, I think I can tell which one :| As for if it'll happen or not, that's all up in the air at this point.

Well, just wanted to be sure... And after some digging, I found this.

There doesn't really seem to be anything in this new mobius that's interesting.

Just got 255

Oh look, another game location, how nice...

To you. You keep forgetting to point out that it's not interesting to you.

Some people are glad they have Game locations now after years of avoiding them because...because.

This is true. I, for one, am very happy to see more and more game locations in the comics.

I'd be more interested in new locations if Archie were doing things with them. We saw Westside Island, it looks just like the Kingdom of Acorn. We saw Avalon, it's a renamed Mercia. We saw the Mystic Ruins, it looks like Cat Country.

We already had all these locations, they've just been renamed so the Sega-only fanbase can go "Hey, look at that!"

*Note: Haven't read 255 yet, this post is not meant to judge any game locations introduced in the issue. My wait for SU58 continues...

The Mystic Ruins already existed in the previous continuity. And the Mystic Ruins looks just like it's game counterpart.

The reason Westside Island may look like the Kingdom of Acorn to you is because we've seen Mobotropolis.

I'm just saying that Archie hasn't done anything different with the game locations other than name dropping Sega terms. It's cute that Knothole's in the Wood Zone, but that's just an easter egg. As far as we know, it's still Knothole. Sonic and Tails make reference to it not being the Knothole we know, but since I haven't seen it yet, that's meaningless to me.
