Sonic Boom | Heroes

Despite a press conference and trailer release, we know very little about Sonic Boom. Well, we’ve now got a little more information, gleaned from a recent interview. You can watch it here.

Sonic Boom | Sonic and Amy

While there’s very little we don’t already know (there’s still a glaring omission of any 3DS details), there were a few details to be gleaned.

  • The Wii U GamePad will be used to display a map and upgrades, as well as another function which is yet to be unveiled
  • The game follows an adventure style with currency and upgrades for the characters
  • The game is more “organically” challenging, in that difficulty arises from skill in combat and finding hidden secrets as opposed to enemies just becoming tougher
  • All the levels in the game are connected by the story and its locations
  • You will mainly use two characters at a time during gameplay, but all four will show up in hubs and boss fights
  • There will be points in the game where you are required to use a certain character to proceed
  • The game will be very character-driven, with a lot of focus put onto each individual character and their unique abilities
  • We will “definitely” be seeing other characters from the Sonic series making an appearance – these will be revealed over the coming months
  • Inspiration is being taken from Sonic 2, Sonic Adventure, and Sonic Generations

About Guy Rainey

I’m Guy Rainey. I’m a hardcore Nintendo fan, a PC enthusiast, and a Sony sympathizer. Also an amateur/aspiring game creator. I love any game that puts story as the main focus of the game, so that means JRPGs are my favorite genre almost by default.

    They are being inspired by good games, I have faith that this game will be good.

    If this gets good reviews it might just be my first Sonic game, the series never really interested me before
