Jul 23rd, 2013

This week we have more footage from Sonic Lost World, taking a look at the Frozen Factory stage of the game. Last week we showed you screenshots of some of the other stages, including a casino and desert setting. Overall it looks like the new parkour elements of the game are incorporated well and should flow smoothly with traditional Sonic gameplay. The game is releasing on October 22nd.

What do you think of the trailer?

      ME TOO

      • Zombie Boy

        But seriously, I’m a huge Sonic fan, and I’m glad I can continue playing his games on the Wii U. And to think that Nintendo and Sega used to be rivals!

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Yeah, but he had some really awkward stuff in the nineties.

          • Zombie Boy

            Okay, I’ll reiterate: I liked his games on the Sega consoles and I like Sonic Racing (both the Wii and Wii U versions). Admittedly there has been a gap, with a few notable entries to the series – Generations was good – but his games have been getting better and better lately, and now it looks like they’re back on form. So glad it’s on the Wii U and I’m not missing out πŸ™‚

          • Luffy

            except Sonic 2006 and Dark Knights, I really liked every Sonic games. πŸ™‚

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Yeah, I thought more about these things…

          • Zombie Boy

            I’d like to pretend that never happened.

          • Lusunup

            Those are the best types of cartoons what are you talking about akward ;it was better than the stuff they show now.(besides ed, edd, and eddy)

          • fireheartis1

            Oh come on the Sonic cartoons are awesome!!!

          • Will (ishigum)


        • 00EpicGamer00

          That picture just made me think of something……almost every Nintendo and Sega character, wears gloves.

          • Baum γ€Œγƒ„γƒͺー」

            DK and the other Kongs are the only ones without any, right?

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Kirby, Falco, Pit, Bowser, Yoshi, Mr. Game and Watch, Lucas, Ness, Rob, aaaaand……I guess if this counts, Toon Link.

          • Sidney Majurie

            Kinda like Disney…

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Well…did you know that Nintendo was inspired by Disney? In fact, Believe it or not but Link was actually inspired by Peter Pan. Look at the similarities and you’ll see what I mean.

            Edit: Who dissliked this? Miymoto said himself that Links design and whatnot was inspired by Peter Pan.

          • Sidney Majurie

            Yeah I knew that. As far as the downvote… Haters man.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            I find that pretty cool though πŸ™‚
            …How can someone hate a fact!?

          • Zombie Boy

            There’s a lot that do, but a lot that don’t too. Off the top of my head, the Kirby characters, the Donkey Kong characters, the Zelda characters, the Shenmue characters, the Skies of Arcadia characters, the Jet Set Radio characters, the Crazy Taxi characters, the Golden Axe characters, the Streets of Rage characters, The House Of The Dead characters… and Alex Kidd.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Actually Link and Zelda wear gloves. Zelda doesn’t ALL THE TIME wear gloves, but her usual design is with gloves.

          • Zombie Boy

            I guess it depends which game. I always use Ocarina Of Time as my Legend Of Zelda reference point. Not sure about Zelda, but link doesn’t wear them in that.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Actually Link DOES wear gloves in ocarina of time. Adult Link wears the gloves.

          • Zombie Boy

            But child Link doesn’t… I guess he’s just trying to please everybody lol!

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Oh, okay. Sorry, I wasn’t sure which you were talking about xD

        • I_I

          This picture gave me an Idea a story script for Mario and Sonic cross over game if anyone can make it reach Nintendo that’s the problem

          • Zombie Boy

            Just go to Nintendo’s official site, there should be a way to submit ideas. Someone on here did it for a plug-in idea (to play 3DS games on the Wii U) and got a response.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Just go to their website (that’s how I submitted my idea.) Just click support at the top of the page, then scroll all the way down, and under the support heading, click “contact us”.
            But, please note that Nintendo won’t respond in a few minutes, it takes them a few days (it took them about 3 days to respond to me.)

        • Truthteller

          Soon, we will be playing Mario on the PS4 and X1!

          • Zombie Boy

            You really are a sad little man, aren’t you?

          • Mario

            Please! He wouldn’t even set a single foot on those consoles!

        • Mario

          I know! Right!?

        • Mario

          These two will always be my most favorite video game characters out of all.

          • Zombie Boy

            I have to admit, Sonic will always be my number one, as I spent my early teenage years playing Sega’s consoles and that’s when I REALLY got into gaming (shhh, don’t tell anyone though).

  • Bob Charlie

    Mo’ money, mo’ problems.
    Deciding which Wii U game to play the rest of this year is something I’m going to lose sleep over. Β¦)

    • Marcus Navarro

      ALL OF THEM!!!(hopefully)

  • Lil J Moore


  • Luna Moonfang

    Oh damn, i almost forgot about this game >.>
    For Selemene’s sake, i’m going to live under bridges this year.

    • Marcus Navarro

      You’re gonna troll?

  • Baum γ€Œγƒ„γƒͺー」

    Can’t wait to dash as fast as possible through that kind of levels πŸ˜€
    Lost World really got me into the Sonic franchise, dunno why xD

    • Michael Jurado

      I want to use Eagle!!

  • Marcus Navarro

    Sonic is back in full force, son! I’ve always preferred Sonic over Mario(mostly), but after Sonic Adventure 2…ugh. I don’t think it got worse than Sonic ’06. Since then, Sonic’s improved(although to be fair, you can’t get lower than rock bottom).

    Sonic and the Secret Rings was bland, but more playable than Sonic ’06(not saying much).
    Sonic Unleashed wasn’t very good, but much more playable than The Secret Rings. Some parts were actually fun. Don’t judge me!

    Sonic Colors was surprisingly good. People slept on it because Sonic was sucking major dogwater at the time.
    Sonic Generations was AWESOME! No other word can describe it! Not perfect, but no game ever was.

    Now given Sega’s track record lately, Lost World should be an improvement over Generations. I can’t wait for Lost World!!!

    • Mark

      Sega does what Nintendon’t. Such a classic phrase, but I love Mario too.

    • Michael Jurado

      omg sonic ’06 why did you even bring it up, it was so bad. after that game I didn’t pick up sonic until Sonic Colors personally I think Lost world is going to be the Sonic game that makes him top dog again

  • Mark Thom

    its looks next gen and DAMN!!!!!! Good!

  • Lil J Moore

    Please release a playable demo.

  • Mochlum

    Sonic: Lost World, Wind Waker HD, Pokemon X and Y, LEGO Marvel, god, give me a break this October, game industry!

  • uPadWatcher

    This level looks amazing, fast, and beautiful. Sonic Lost World is most DEFINITELY one of the many games to purchase on the Wii U.

    • dxcvs

      Im getting it on 3ds

  • bigwigglystyyle

    This game looks spectacular!

  • sdmac200600

    It’s about time I get to actually play a game faster than Mario (even though I can play the original SMB as opposed to the original StH. Hope SOMEBODY gets what I’m saying)

    • Michael Jurado

      wasn’t sonic’s speed somewhat of an illusion while mario was actually faster frame wise or something like that?

      • sdmac200600

        I think it was something like that. Here’s the video that explains it in like great detail


        • Michael Jurado

          the problem with his theory is that he thinks sonic is like centimeters tall yet we’ve seen him next to actual humans and comes far above the waist not counting the spikes lol so it’s like ehh that’s all it is a game theory πŸ˜›

          • Doctors Tardis

            He states sonic is 3 foot 7 inches tall, in fact, he came to that from sonic… wait for it….. standing next to a human.

  • Pedro Natera


  • ican1992

    this game looks kinda boring i dont think ill pick it up.

    • Zombie Boy

      So what kind of games do you enjoy?

      • Hugh Quinn

        im thinking cod?

        • Zombie Boy

          FIFA? Madden? Lol. Give the guy a chance though, not everyone likes the same types of game. But this looks awesome to me, I’ve always loved Sonic.

          • ican1992

            I remember playing one sonic game i enjoyed on the gamecube but after that i couldnt find any other sonic games that appealed to me, i guess its just not for me.

          • Zombie Boy

            There were a few for the Gamecube, most notably Sonic Adventure and Sonic Heroes. They were okay, but not the best of the series, in my opinion.

          • ican1992

            Yeah it was sonic heroes the one I played

        • ican1992

          No I’m tired of cod that’s why I have a Wii U. I meant no offense when I said it looks boring what I should have said is it looks boring in my opinion. I’m currently playing MH3U

          • Michael Jurado

            I just reached 1K hours in MH3U

    • everyone

      Plenty of games comin out anyway. I personally like how it looks but Sonic isn’t everyones cup of tea.

      • ican1992

        I’m patiently waiting for wind waker HD, Mario kart and super smash bros u.

    • discuss

      Yeah people lets downvote someone because he likes other games then you do.

      • ican1992

        It’s ok they are just showing their opinions like I did.

  • meekmeek93

    Check this fake ad for the Wii U by DaKidWiiTrailers:


    • Baum γ€Œγƒ„γƒͺー」

      It’s not even supposed to be an ad…

  • Yousif Alromaithi

    Oh the god days when Sega used to be a powerhouse innovative company how those days past during the golden age of video games. Sega and Nintendo were enemies in the past and now ironic they put aside their differences in order to work together as friends. I will never forget Sega Saturn and Dreamcast.

    • Luffy

      Sega still remains my favorite company somehow. I just love there games sooo much!

      • Yousif Alromaithi

        They are the best. The first rpg I finished was on dream cast. Skies of Arcadia and Grandia 2. Although first game I ever played on my life was Chrono Trigger at 1995 and did not finish it until 2003. But my favorite rpg game ever is Chrono Trigger from the snes version. I remember Sonic Adventure and Power Stone. Those games were really good especially Crazy Taxi.

        • Luffy

          If you like Sega, RPG and skies of Arcadia, you have to play Phantasy Star IV!

          It’s my personal favorite and it was produce by the same girl that did Skies of Arcadia (Rieko Kodama)

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            I played it on rom. I played also Phantasy Star online gamecube. One of my all time favorite rpg really difficult but rewarding and remind of Monster Hunter. Have you ever played Shining Force I played it on Virtual Console Wii. Never played Sega Saturn game is really hard. Never interested on it before.

          • Luffy

            yes, i love shining force! i hope they release shining force episode 2&3 in english one day!

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            I hope they do because I missed a lot. If only they released Shining Force 3 on Virtual Console.

          • Luffy

            a shining force 3 complete, hd version for wii u!

  • Mitch Hall

    Visuals are gorgeous, and it looks like the game is locked at 60fps. I was skeptical about Lost World at first, but it’s looking better and better the more I see of it.

  • Luffy

    This is my most anticipated game of 2013 (alongside Dark Souls 2…. damn I want that game on Wii U. The gamepad would be perfect for it!)

  • JeanPaul

    I was not interested in this game until this video. It actually looks really good. lol Maybe the there videos I’ve seen just had bad quality or something.

    • everyone

      I watched plenty of vids and this one looks the best so far.

  • everyone

    October. Soon.

  • Steven_Segal

    I’ve never been a fan of Sonic until now!

  • Ducked

    I love snow levels!

  • Vialtoclef

    Is it me, or does the guy playing sound really nerdy?

  • Thomas Fitzgibbon

    As much as I would love this game to be great, I am starting to feel a little concerned that Lost World seems to be suffering from some sort of identity crisis, anyone else feel the same? Not to say it won’t turn out great but we may be asking ourselves “What is it trying to be?”

  • Zackary Bruley

    This is going to be awesome!

  • starwars360

    Yes!!!! Look so icing Sonic!!!! Cannot wait for this to be my one of library Wii U games to look forward.

    Oh god new Mario, Sonic, Donkey Kong and Ratchet & Clank platformer games release between October and Decemeber 2013 respectly for those biggest game heroes and their own biggest platformer games is coming so sooner. πŸ™‚

    So exciting aren’t we? πŸ˜›

  • Metal_Man_v2

    Really on the fence about this game. I want to like it, but the level design just seems like a major step down from games like Sonic Generations or Sonic Adventure 1-2. This particular level looks like the gameplay is very choppy. Run down a straight way, go to pinball, then run down another straight. The lack of actual platforming is kind of a put off.

    • Patrick Francis

      It looks like they took the gameplay from Sonic and the secret rings, then made it slower-paced and added gimmicks.

  • Mark

    I really dont see the point in multiplayer for such a game; I always liked playing story mode the best. This game is going to be a blast, just like every other Sonic game released!

    P.S: I’m writing this comment on the Wii U’s internet browser. It’s as fast as can be!

    • Shota

      can you see the trailer on wiiu? because my wiiu doesnt show anything

  • FlyingBoat

    when I saw the bell I seriously thought for a moment that sonic was about to turn into cat sonic

    • Luffy

      that would have been so funny! πŸ˜›

    • Michael Jurado

      for some reason I thought about kick the can

    • Johny

      me too lol

  • Maxid765

    This game is one of the reasons I will be buying a wii u

  • TheGamerGeek128

    Looks fun!

  • Jack5221

    Looks cool! I really hope they have a Chao Garden similar to that of Sonic Adventure 2 battle.

  • Ryan

    looks very very nice. looking forward to playing a demo of this.

  • Derek D’Arcy

    sonic on megadrive first game i ever played , still love em

  • Aaron

    This is going to put Sonic back in the game. Now after this, hopefully Sonic Adventure 3:)

  • Game Wizard

    cant view this on the gamepad

  • Game Wizard

    cant watch video on gamepad

  • Merrfn

    This game looks like I will pick it up rather swiftly. Looks fun. Though the textures can sometimes look rather muddy I don’t really care. That is not enough for me not to buy it probably won’t even look muddy once it is in my Wii U. The gameplay looks smooth and I like the way you can choose between speeds, because Sonic, though fun can be too much of a challenge with ultra fast speeds. Almost a blind guessing game. Hopefully I am not over selling the game to myself, and it is going to fulfil my wishes. Looks like I will be the child gamer everyone thinks I am. Playing “Kiddie games” while my friends play CoD. See the irony there? Sometimes being 16 can get to me. Nintendo doesn’t make kiddie games. It makes games suitable for all ages. E for everyone.

  • shaun

    it looks great but I hope I can still play with the wii-mot! I still love motion controls

  • Michael Jurado

    finally a good sonic game

  • Διονύς84

    i wanna c footage from a boss fight

  • John Raybell

    why didn’t the enemies attack him, was this some strange demo build, or is the AI really that bad.

    Im not a troll, im just curious as i want to get it, but something about this gameplay video bothers me.

    • Patrick Francis

      In sonic, most enemies are just decorated spikes. They do damage if you run into them, but they are just there to be an obstacle .

  • Rioto

    Dear sonic.

    I remember having a great time playing you as a kid. Hell, most of my childhood i was busy guiding you through dangerous hazards. Things got bad after a while.. you decided to take on a whole different approach and i was forced to let you go..you were not the sonic i used to know.. i felt betrayed. But after seeing this footage i am glad you are returning home..welcome back bro!

  • zajac1661

    I think This game looks alot better, than the last couple of titles.

  • gamesplayswill

    Wow… Remember when I bashed this game?
    *Pre-orders it*

  • Jason

    Gameplay looks shallow and uninspired.

    • Elem187

      I’m failing to see why this game is getting praise.. Its starting to look like a renter…. I’m looking more forward to Sonic/Mario Sochi over Lost World.

  • Patrick Francis

    Anyone else wondering why the white coins stack up behind you and completely block the screen?
