Sonic Lost World

New Enemies And New Moves Shown In First Trailer

Sonic has had a rocky past with some less-than-awesome titles making appearances in the last few years. Could the newly announced Sonic Lost World turn the franchise around? Take a look at the new gameplay revealed in this trailer and judge for yourself.

Sega announced that Sonic Lost World will be coming to Nintendo Wii U and 3DS later this year along with a trailer and screenshots, available below.

Sonic is pitted against six new villains recruited by the nefarious Dr. Eggman. However, the plot thickens when The Deadly Six revolt against Eggman, forcing him and Sonic into an unlikely partnership to stop them. The Color Powers from Sonic Colors make a return, along with new parkour abilities like wall-running. Both the 3DS and Wii U versions feature competitive multiplayer, though details haven't been revealed yet. Wii U owners can use the Gamepad's touchscreen and tilt functions to use Sonic's Color Powers. 3DS players can look forward to 3D visuals and exclusive stages for the handheld.

Are you considering giving Sonic Lost World a try? Or are you burned out on the franchise? Chime in and tell us why or why not in the comments.

Comments
  • It's still a Sega game, so I'll refrain my final judgment until it comes out, but the footage sure looked stellar. I loved how they're mashing up the formula with a ton of Super Mario Galaxy in it. If I don't get too dizzy from all those mind-bending courses, I know what I'm playing on Wii U this holiday season.

  • This looks great. I wonder how the new gameplay is going to work

  • The graphics are terrible considering this is a console with still a lot of power, even if its weak by PS4 and Xbox One standards. Hopefully Nintendo steps up the graphics of its next games.
  • i don't know davey...

  • It looks pretty good. Seems a bit slower that Generations or Colors, but the greater focus on platforming may make it really cool none the less. I'll wait to see more on it, but I'm hopeful.

  • Why haven't we had a Sonic game with Parkour before? The addition makes a lot of sense when you think about it; and it's obvious with games like Assassins Creed that it's easy enough to implement stuff like that in a Video Game.

  • Burned out should not be a word coming from your fingers. No more than say mario rehashing the same old stages with simple new suits or call of duty.....thats just a giant hash. But the game looks ok. The story and animations seem geared toward a younger crowd granted one could have seen this coming seeing as its only on wiiu and 3ds. Also stop spouting the nonsense its copying from galaxy people. Its a re imaging of sonic xtreme from back in the saturn days and way before galaxy's was even brought about.
  • Cool beans, actual gameplay looks promising, don't want to be disapointed though.
  • Super Sonic Galaxy? That's what it looks like to me, not a bad thing though.
  • I'm really excited for this game. More footage at E3 I hope.

    I just hope gameinformer is fair with this review unlike Colors and Generations.
  • Im mad its not for the PS4
  • Looks promising enough for me, if not the same Sonic we've been seeing for 20+ years. Here's to mixing things up a bit this time around maybe...

  • Super Sonic Galaxy. But I'm not complaining.

  • After Sonic Colors, Sonic 4 Ep 2 and Sonic Generations, Sega has my utmost confidence in continuing with the Sonic franchise.
  • Sonic Colors sequel looks pretty good :)
  • No iam actually really looking foward to this..It looks...good to me.

  • Geez, took long enough for this to get shown here. The game looks pretty sharp so far--maybe with Nintendo helping out, Sonic will finally return to his glory days.
  • I'm not going to even bother keeping track of this. We're all hoping for a change/mix u, but I know it's not gonna happen. Another Sonic game with the same gameplay, same world setting, and six really kooky looking bad guys. I already know the ending.
