Sonic Lost World

IGN just released the trailer for the newly announced Sonic Lost World. This trailer reveals that the six silhouetted figures from the picture SEGA teased are going to be the villains of this new game, while Sonic appears to be saving various critters that look highly reminiscent of the critters from the old Sonic games. In fact, a lot of the game so far seems to be taking inspiration from the old Genesis titles. The environments have a Green Hill Zone look to them, Sonic has that classic running animation that was in Sonic Generations and a couple of old sound effects, like enemies poofing upon being hit, are present.

That’s not to say that this is just going to be Sonic retreading his glory days. The trailer boasts that Sonic has some new moves, such as a wall-climbing/wall-running ability as well as a mid-air kick of some kind. The levels also take some inspiration from Super Mario Galaxy, though not quite to the same extent that Sonic Colors did.

More information about Sonic Lost World, like other features of the game and its release date, will likely be revealed at this year’s E3.  This game will be available on the Wii U and the 3DS sometime later this year. Until then, you can watch the trailer below.

    I am more than a little excited by this. It looks absolutely stunning and adds some nice new game mechanics to mix it up and deepen the experience. So long as the combat doesn’t slow down the regular gameplay (See: Sonic and the Black Knight), then call me satisfied. Also, Super Peelout/ Figure Eight going on? I am hype.

      Technically the world of Sonic Xtreme was lost, no? *wink wink, nudge nudge*

      Sonic Retro already made that parallel this morning.

    Can’t wait for this :D!

  • Have to say…this actually looks really cool. Looks like it has the retro style of the Genesis era, while mixing some cool Mario Galaxyesque design, maintaining the fun 3D speed that Sonic Adventure had in the Sonic levels. Looks like a blast. Hope it is.

    Did anyone catch the song they were playing? It’s a Benny Benasi tune. Not my favorite, but definitely a step up from the cheesy rock that they used to use in the Adventure games (Sonic Adventure 2, I’m looking at you).

    After Sonic adventure 2 this might be my next sonic game, looks really good

  • NinTemple

    Looks great!! Sega + Nintendo = bliss.

  • Monica

    Stop comparing it to Mario Galaxy! People are missing the point that the level design is a reference to the cancelled title Sonic Xtreme (look it up), not Mario Galaxy.

  • They had me at the biplane.

  • Looks pretty good. I can’t wait to see how it turns out.

  • WiiU and 3DS?!?!?! HELLS YES! *pumps fist* 😀
