Iron Rotor
Iron Rotor profile

Iron Rotor is a transformation that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is battle armor made by nanites that Rotor Walrus used during the Second Robotnik War during the creation of Team Freedom. After suffering from a devastating back injury during the Destruction of Knothole, Rotor was left defenseless until he and Nicole created the battle armor, allowing him to go out in the battlefield once more.

With Summer nearing its end, Sonic News Network finally gets its long overdue Featured User Interview update. And the subject of said interview is none other than frequent wiki-goer (and Featured User), Ultrasonic9000. Ultrasonic didn't give a quote for this month's interview, so we'll be getting right along to the interview itself.

# 1. Q) Now that we've gotten some more information, what are your thoughts on Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice?

A) I would say I am cautiously positive. The developers have been learning from their mistakes and are attempting to give it a more Sonic feel, and from what I have been able to gleam at, I would say they have achieved that. I just hope it will be appealing enough for the fans.

# 2. Q) Given it's been the newest craze since release, what are your opinions regarding the mobile app Pokemon Go?

A) I would say it is a really big step towards bringing Pokémon into the real world. With such new and groundbreaking mechanics, the game is really challenging both the aspects of gameplay and the interaction in the real world. This has given rise to both perks and controversies which are never seen before, which is what I believe is the reason why it gets so much attention.

# 3. Q) Are you excited to hear news about a new main series Sonic game relatively soon?

A) I really am. With all the hype surrounding it and what they are building up to, I suspect it is going to be a big, even by normal standards (perhaps Sonic Adventure 3?) However, then I remember the recent games and remind myself that I should not set my expectations too high. The era of complex plots in the Sonic games appears to be over.

# 4. Q) How do you think the Summer has shaped up for Sonic so far?

A) Well, from what I can tell, there has been a fair amount of awareness surrounding Sonic's anniversary and it has been a build-up to the big party in the summer. I especially liked the Sonic-Eggman Q&A on twitter. It has not been as intense as the 20th anniversary, but then again, there has not been a game to rely on for that.

# 5. Q) When the new games come out, do you think that will see a rise in activity for SNN?

A) It will definitely cause some rise in activity. How much depends on how many editors that are still willing to engage in SNN at this point, as I suspect many of them have other things to take care of by now. And new editors today need a lot of molding. Then again, it might be our own fault for being so informal.

# 6. Q) What other ways do you think could get more community involvement and participation on Sonic News Network?

A) That is hard for me to say, as I am really not that big of a people-person and have trouble figuring out what others think and feel. I suppose it would take some appealing to their immersion in the Sonic universe, creativity and desire to voice their view on the various aspects that they believe vital.

# 7. Q) Besides SNN, what are your preferred Sonic fansites to visit?

A) Sonic Stadium, Sonic Retro and TSSZ.

# 8. Q) What do you think we'll see from the new main series Sonic game?

A) The way the series has been going since Sonic Colors, I would say a simple story with Sonic as the main playable character, some minor, yet recurring, gameplay tweaks derived from the classical elements, Eggman as the main villain, and an comprehensible ending with a slight plot twist at the end. However, I also expect high game quality, as that is what Sega has decided to focus on in the recent year.

# 9. Q) If you had to pick one gimmick from past Sonic games to make a return, which would it be?

A) The Bungee Rope. I don't know why, I just like it.

# 10. Q) What do you think of SEGA's philosophy of releasing the new game during the year of Sonic's anniversary, rather than try and aim for close to the date itself?

A) I think it is a flexible decision. Sure, it might be a little unorthodox, but they are giving themselves more time that way, and I believe that the Sonic games need some serious time to get polished for the release date.
