Sonic Boom: Fire & IceNo rest for the wicked the saying goes as proven by Sega announcing Sonic’s upcoming Nintendo 3DS Title Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice. Unlike their previous outing, Fire & Ice is a 2D sidescroller, but you still play as Sonic or one of his four friends. The Fire & Ice part comes into play as a kind of traversal power-up that lets Sonic and company get through the level. Here’s a nice handy video that will explain that better.

In Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, Sonic and friends are trying to stop Dr. Robotnik Eggman and a new vilain D-Fekt from trying to… do something. Sega hasn’t quite revealed the full details on the story yet. Rest assured though that the game will feature characters, events, and backstory from the Sonic Boom universe.

A new mode called Bot Racing will be included. In it, players race unlockable, themed bots with other players.

Yes, this is the same Sonic Boom that was responsible for Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, a game that we didn’t really care for.  But that’s because it, and like so many -although not all– other failed Sonic games, was in 3D. Whenever Sonic goes 2D, the game tends to be a little better than their 3D counterparts. So maybe Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, just maybe, this one will be at least decent.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice has a holiday 2015 release window.

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?

    you do know it’s a sequel to Shattered Crystal, not Rise of Lyric, right? Because that would be incredibly stupid and poor showing for both the writer and editer.
