I doubt that Bioware is the one behind making the names.Both are hilariously bad names, but I'd expect Bioware to have more sense than to name a character 'Shade', while I already know that Sonic Team went off the deep end a long time ago.
And there we have Dattebayo's usual "make one post and run like hell" tactic.What has BioWare done to my favorite Hedgehog?! RPGs doesn't suit Sonic at all. The only good games Sonic makes are the 3D Sonic games.
THat suspiciously looks like Nights.(Can't write it properly)Got me some more images.
The rest I found was the whole Nintendo Power article on it.
Oddly, she reminds me a bit of Midna from Twilight Princess.
But yeah... another new Sonic character. Didn't see this one coming.
