StH: Scrapnik Island #1

Wed Oct 19, 2022 12 d

It was a dark and stormy night. Harsh rain from an unnatural storm fell upon Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles “Tails” Prower as they flew above the sea in the Tornado. Lightning strikes, causing the plane to spiral downward into a crash landing on an uncharted island. What Sonic and Tails will soon learn is that the island is no island at all, but the floating remains of the Death Egg. Scrapped, rusted, and malfunctioning Badniks call this place home. Can the friends survive isolation on an island of robots programmed to destroy them?

It’s alive! It’s rusted… It’s shaped like Sonic… It’s Mecha Sonic! He’s no longer Eggman’s prized invention but just a docile bot living among other washed-up Badniks.

    “Harmony” newsletters found and being scanned!

    Shining a light on this mysterious piece of Sega history.

    Harmony was a periodic newsletter released internally at Sega’s Japanese branch, potentially dating back to the 1960s. Sonic fans will recognize the cover illustrations, many of which appeared in the famous Sonic screensaver from the mid-90s. Aside from that, however, extremely little was known about Harmony, having evaded the eyes of fans for decades.

    Well, that’s about to change. Fifteen unique issues have recently been purchased from an auction site to be scanned. Issues 129 and 130 are currently available, with more on the way. These give a rare insight into the going-ons at Sega during their heyday in the 90s. Inside you’ll find info on events the company attended, their amusement centers, newly released games, employee interviews, and so on. Eventually we’ll be also seeing those famous photos of Michael Jackson’s visit to Sega headquarters.

    Hey, check out this Sonic merch on display at the 1994 Tokyo Toy Show. (Including a box of Honey Nut Cheerios.)

    And here’s the “SegaSonic & Tails” merch shop at a Joypolis amusement center.

    For further updates, follow @suddendesu on Twitter. Consider chipping in a bit to their Ko-fi if you’d like to help recoup the cost of purchase (these weren’t cheap!). Maybe follow this Sonic Retro megathread discussing findings. You can also check out the Sudden Desu website with some interesting data digs into various arcade games.
