Today during the Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata confirmed that Sonic Lost World will be coming to North America on October 22nd. The Direct also showed off a bit more gameplay, including more of the parkour elements featured in the game.

No new zones were showed off during the trailer, but 3DS integration was shown off. Those who have the 3DS version of the game can make special RC robots in Tail’s Workshop on the 3DS that can then be imported to be used on the Wii U version of the game.

    Cool. I’ll be getting a lot of games this winter!

  • Gameplay looked a lot smoother and brighter than it has previously. Was it just me, or did anyone else notice this? Sega’s been working hard it seems!

      Well the stream kinda sucked for me, but even in 480p it looked kinda…better. Dunno why though ^^

        I hate Ustream.

        With a passion.

        • Baum 「ツリー」

          The funniest (well, maybe the saddest) thing is, that it loaded it as HD, but only displayed 480p the whole time…it looked good in that small window, but Fullscreen was almost unwatchable

    OOOOOuchh!!! My wallet is taking a beating these last months! Pikmin, Windwaker, Link Between Worlds, Wonderful 101, Sonic Lost World, Mario 3D World, Wii Party U, Rayman Legends, Mario and Luigi Dream Team, Professor Layton…

  • Mitch Hall

    Anyone have a link to the trailer?

  • Malik Gilbert

    Why do I feel like this direct is a waste of time and I didn’t even watch it yet

    • Baum 「ツリー」

      There were some new announcements in the european Direct. And at least the Animal Crossing Lobby was new for all regions.

      The new games for Europe were mostly Indie games though…and some 3DS localisations (Layton x Ace Attorney, a SMT game and some other RPG wich seems to be quite popular, but wich Name I forgot….)

      It should have been expected, they announced the direct would cover already announced games for Wii U/3DS that are releasing this year. There were a few nice surprises, though (Art Academy comes out Friday, AC Plaza released today, etc.)
