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.
