You can check out a new trailer from PAX Prime 2014 showing gameplay and features in Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal.
I will admit that I was pleasantly surprised; at least the new handheld Sonic title looks a bit more like the classic games, and might not focus so much on the new, weird-looking character designs. Continue reading
Sega revealed this week that Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (developed by Sanzaru Games) will launch for Nintendo 3DS on November 11.
The Wii U version of Sonic Boom – Rise of the Lyric – will be released a week later.
The new downloads available this week on the Nintendo eShop should be exciting to fans of classic SEGA games – several of the newest titles include Master System/Genesis hits.
For $5.99, you can download the 3D-enhanced versions of Hang On! and Space Harrier. Along with the stereoscopic effects, Hang On! features tilt-based controls, and Space Harrier adds touch-based controls with an auto-fire option for newcomers.
Additionally, this week’s Virtual Console download – Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom can be purchased for $4.99.
There are some interesting sales on the eShop as well; Shin Megami Tensei IV (Nov. 28-Dec. 2) is just $30 – a steal, considering it is one of my personal-favorite 3DS games of 2013. Several Mario-related games are also marked down (Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, and Mario & Donkey Kong: Minis On The Move) until December 5.
You can see over half an hour of off-screen footage (complete with direct-feed audio) from Sonic: Lost World for the Nintendo 3DS after the break – Sega’s latest is definitely looking good, you won’t want to miss this video. Continue reading
Just a quick release date blurb; yesterday SEGA confirmed the launch date for Sonic: Lost World on both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. You can look forward to picking it up on October 13.
(For those keeping track, that’s the day after Pokemon X & Y come out. Sega could have done some nicer things with the timing on this one.)
Exclusive to Nintendo platforms, Sonic: Lost World will feature unique level design on both the 3DS and Wii U versions – even unique among themselves, with the 3DS version being tailored more specifically for the handheld. The game actually look like it plays like Sonic’s version of Super Mario Galaxy, and that’s a very great thing.
A Sega product page for Sonic: Lost World recently spilled the beans on some of the details regarding the upcoming Sonic title, but it appears Sega has now dedicated a bit more effort into sharing information about the game, with a recent preview posted on IGN. A full list of Wii U & 3DS features as well as commentary from Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka after the break. Continue reading
Quick video post; IGN has uploaded a trailer of Sonic: Lost World for the Nintendo 3DS, showing off gameplay from the Windy Hill stage of the game. I would assume it is a very early stage, as it seems to have the Green Hill Zone style and simple platforming challenges. Check out the footage after the break. Continue reading

I’m not normally in the business of posting a bunch of screenshots, but I decided to change things up a little bit. Sega recently revealed Sonic: Lost World for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, including a launch trailer based on the Wii U version. Until now, we haven’t had a look at the handheld port. Sega released some screenshots yesterday, and you can have a look at them after the break. Continue reading
Sega has revealed the latest Sonic title, called Sonic: Lost World, exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. It appears that Sonic will be headed in a very different direction, with Lost World looking quite a bit like the Sonic equivalent of Super Mario Galaxy.
