    Okay, the name is extremely lame, IMO. So, brace yourselves! The new name for Sonic Wild Fire is..............









































    SONIC AND THE SECRET RINGS

    Source:*CLICK HERE*

    Sonic and the Secret Rings is due out in early 2007.
    What are your thoughts on the name change? I obviously, like Wild Fire a lot better. :\

    ... sonic and the secret rings... wow. the old name was much better. It appealed to old and young. This one appeals to people that like secret rings. *BLING*BLING FOOLS*8)

    Oh, Thats probably the lamest name ever. But it doesn't bother me that much, I'm not much of a Sonic-fan anyway. =)

    man, I like it... it will be same as the wii, we used to say "Revolution, Revo, Nintendo Revolution, Nintendo Revo, Nintendo Rvo... and then just wii, people didnt get it at the beggining, but then they will get it, I think that will happen too to Sonic and the secret rings (which I think that site is lying)

    I'm just the opposite, I was about to say it's not the same as the Rev and the Wii. Although it seems like a good analogy for this, it's not the same at all, Sonic Wild Fire is a hell of alot better and makes more since than..."The Secret Rings". It's very dumb and has no meaning behind it like the Wii does, any of the sonic games could have been "the secret rings".

    If They Don't Change It I'm Gonna Get Really Pissed!!! RARRRGGHHH!!!

    *EDIT*I think it's lying too, I don't believe anything unless it's on IGN or Nintendo.com

    I dont mind too, and I think its a fake, cause it has not been anounced on IGN or Nintendo so its just a fake... ah and anyway I wouldnt buy that game either!

    Song...and the secret...rings? As far as I'm away they normally just kinda float in the air, they're telling me noones ever stood and thought "I wonder what they are" this is perhaps THE lamest name change in the history of ever. How old do they think the majority of us are? 3? I happened to love the old name...now this one...well all I can say is it's affected my decision on whether or not to buy it.

    I agree a name is a name who gives a stuffed pig. It's the game that matters people! Would you buy a game on say a DS if the games called Wii Release Date Revealed and then you buy the game and its just a tetris game?

    I don't feel like pulling a direct quote from above, but maybe the name makes sense. You haven't played the game yet so you can't really say it doesn't make sense.

    What I can see as a reason is this: wild fire was the name of some new power they had invented for this game, they also had good ideas for a few other powers. Rather than throw those powers out they invented a way to get all those powers (ie. Secret Rings) and changed the name to reflect the broader picture the game now has.
