Some fans think Sonic 06 is a reboot for some damn reason. So I'm going to explain why it isn't. Here are my reasons:
It's about Sonic saving some princess from Robotnik and another villain named Iblis. Like Sonic Adventure, nothing in the story implies it was a reboot to the franchise. Sonic and friends haven't been reintroduced like a reboot should. Shadow(who I heavily dislike) is referred to as the "Ultimate Life Form", a title given to him in PREVIOUS GAMES. Sonic Generations included a level from Sonic 06 meaning that (sadly) it is part of the same timeline with the games from the Classic and Dreamcast era.
Just because humans look realistic all of a sudden doesn't make it a reboot. Sonic and Robotnik both look different as well. The new art style only heavily affected the humans, that's it. In Sonic Unleashed, the humans looked cartoony, and that game was definitely not a reboot either.
The game doesn't have it's own title like other games do havin
