The new Sonic Lost World trailer out of Gamescom shows even more gameplay than we’ve seen so far, including 2 player support mode, as well as Miiverse item sharing that lets you pull in items directly from Miiverse. The gameplay and music are both looking and sounding stunning at this point.

Sonic Lost World releases on October 18th for Europe and October 22nd for North America, will you be picking it up?

    I think it’s shaping up quite nicely. Hopefully the end product will be awesome. If so I’ll definitely get it.

  • incoherent1

    Definitely their best looking trailer so far. That two player versus mode with one player on Gamepad and the other on the TV screen looks awesome!

    • Ducked

      To bad they did a poor job with the co-op :/

      • Zombie Boy

        In all fairness, I’ve never bought a Sonic game for the co-op, but I’ve been racing against friends since Sonic 2.

        • Ducked

          Yeah, but I’ve always been looking forward to Sega making a good Sonic co-op game. They never have πŸ™

          • Zombie Boy

            I’m still waiting for a new Toejam And Earl πŸ˜‰

          • Ducked

            That was an awesome game, what would also be nice would be a Streets of Rage 4

          • Zombie Boy

            Did you ever play the fan made Streets Of Rage freeware game on PC? It collected all of the levels from the Genesis series, all of the characters, and gave it a HD makeover. It was awesome!

            If not, google ‘Streets Of Rage Remake Zandronum’ and check it out πŸ™‚

          • Ducked

            No, haven’t really gamed much on my PC. Sounds awesome though! I think we need to write Sega a few emails…

          • Zombie Boy

            I’ve provided the Google search definition in my comment above if you’d like to check it out.

            And yes, sequels to / remakes of Road Rash, Castle Of Illusion and Wonder Boy In Monster Land would be welcome too πŸ™‚

          • Ducked


            Oh my God, don’t even get my started on Road Rash, that’s one of my favorite Sega games of all time! πŸ™‚

          • Zombie Boy

            I assume you’ve seen footage of Road Redemption, the kickstarter game coming for the Wii U?


          • Ducked

            Actually no I haven’t, but I’m very glad you showed me! I can’t believe I haven’t seen this sooner.

          • Zombie Boy

            It’s coming sometime in early 2014, I believe (maybe sooner).

          • Ducked

            Good to know!

          • Sonic
          • Zombie Boy

            Awesome, will get that on my PC (unless they make a Wii U announcement). Thanks πŸ™‚

          • Sonic

            Well Sonic Adventure 2 Battle is pretty good,but that’s not co-op.

          • Mario

            Oh come on! It can’t be that bad! Right?

      • why is it poor?

        • Ducked

          Player 2 has to play as a robot, c’mon..

          • *shrugs* it worked really well in Mario galaxy. Cept it was a star instead of a robot.

          • Mario

            Good point. It was fun playing as a Luma with my brother as Mario.

  • Ducked

    Clock world, and Casino world look awesome!

    But in 2-player co-op you just get to play as a robot? That’s lame πŸ™

    • $63955329

      I think playing the whole story could be better than 2 player co-op. they have cool stages including clock world and casino night, and of course silent forest. and this game is gonna be the best

  • Josh Samson

    amazing. making all the haters jealous and they ain’t shit they can tell us.

  • Wayne Beck

    Couldn’t care less about Co-op, it’s never been good in Sonic, but the Single player and versus modes look frickin awesome. Can’t wait.

  • Baum γ€Œγƒ„γƒͺー」

    Koop: Looks not too interesting at the Moment. I guess it’s again something like nabbit, a character, that’s suited for younger/less experienced Players.

    Versus Looks really cool πŸ˜€
    I love the idea of a competitive Sonic game (that’s not a racing/fighting/*insert other Spin-Off idea* game ^^

    The Thing, that interests me most after watching the Trailer is the “Miiverse Sharing”…it seems, that we’re able to help each other out with items. I think we’ll be able to send items we don’t Need atm to other Players oO

  • YogiGRB

    I’ll be waiting for you Sonic. My wallet is so hungry right now, empty stomach hahaha

  • sdmac200600

    Looking better and better. Also This game was confirmed at gamescom to be running at 60 FPS and it looks like it in 1080p also.

  • The Clockwork Being

    The only problem with this is no online mutliplayer. Besides that the game will be perfect and I will buy it anyways. My friends that are Sonic fans on other console are pissed for missing this game and might just buy and Wii U just for this.

    Edit:I would have liked the story to be 2 player mode with the second player being Tails or something.

    • Mark

      I would’ve liked an online co-op. But hey, Generation didn’t have multiplayer (at least for the console versions), nor did Colors, so it shouldn’t be that much of a problem.


  • Looks darn sweet, sounds darn great as well. This starts to look like a great Sonic game more and more, finally after so many years (after the last great Sonic game)

    On a side note I came across something else about Sonic: Lost World, well not exactly Sonic: Lost World but a cancelled project on the Sega 32X, maybe someone heard of it? If not check the link out for a remarkable and eerie resemblance… But I love it.

    Sonix Extreme.

    • Mark

      Sonic Extreme was a cancelled Sonic the Hedgehog game for the Sega Saturn (originally planned to be on the 32X). Although having a strong resemblance to Sonic: Lost World, Sonic Extreme was not an influence as the core development team was not familiar with the cancelled game.

  • The Clockwork Being

    At like 1:22.


  • on a less excited note, I’m curious about this “miiverse item sharing” notion…

  • BIG Franky

    i already have this pre-ordered….along with Rayman…. and Disney Infinity which i just picked up. sad thing is, everything is Christmas gifts for the kids, so unfortunately cant play anything until Dec 25th!

  • The Clockwork Being

    Still waiting for that 3rd Sonic game.

  • Mario

    I must, absolutely, 100%, definitely, get this game!

  • Lil J Moore

    Can’t wait for this game

  • SuperNardful

    For the racing, I think they should’ve just had the other characters like Tails, Knuckles, etc. instead of recolors of Sonic. Each character could have their own unique ability like in Sonic Adventure series. I could understand the Story Mode, for now, but the fact that they’re making recolors of Sonic over the other characters sort of makes me think that SEGA is sort of against making their other characters playable this time around. The CO-OP doesn’t look bad though.

  • Jake

    Cool thing for sega to use the gamepad for co-op, something ps4/xb1 can’t do. The use of the gamepad in single player mode wont be really used. Sure for colored powers but that can be replaced

  • majora :D

    What the hell happened to the Sonic music? We used to have guitars blasting solos and now we have dubstep… Anyway, the game looks kinda cool

  • Sora Morp

    ahh this is too much for me
