What you said is all that matters to me.
That's what most Sonic games lacked. They often had Sonic's friends sidelined. Sonic Boom is clearly better, in that regard. Now, they won't be useless!
And if Sonic Boom gets a great amount of success (which we know it will), I'm sure we may see the old characters return. And in a strange way, if they could, I should hope that they can get maybe one or two of the most hated characters and redesign them.
