May 23rd, 2013


Since last week’s Nintendo Direct where Sonic Lost World was unveiled, we’ve been eager for more information about the game and the multiple characters. Sega has released a teaser image of six characters that will appear in the new game on their Facebook page, teasing that they could be “friend or foe”. The characters are scheduled to be revealed in more detail on May 29th, which will probably feature heavily in the upcoming Nintendo Direct. Here’s the quote taken from their Facebook page:

“Six will rise from the Lost World. Are they friends or foes? Find out on May 29th.”

Are you looking forward to the reveal? Let us know in the comments below!

      what’s this got to with sonic’s lost world

      • Arthur Jarret

        It’s where mario found his lost levels.

        • Sora Morp


    • Sonic the Hedgehog

      Oh hey, you’re here!

      • Mario

        We’ve worked out our differences, eh?

        • Now don’t get all fuzzy with Sonic he might just Backstab you… ๐Ÿ˜›

        • Sonic the Hedgehog


      • Saleh Sbeiti

        Do chaos control ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Now don’t get all fuzzy with Mario he might just Backstab you… ๐Ÿ˜›

  • guest

    cant wait to see what sega is up to on this one.

  • CEObrainz

    Hopefully Shadow is in the game, would be cool to play as him again.

    • Christopher Coonan

      I miss the characters from Sonic Adventure 1/DX.

      E-102y’s theme was amazing, and his story full of feels. An innocent droid learning right from wrong, and sacrifice.

      • Too bad he sacrificed himself to free the bird inside of him. He was a really cool and powerful robot and a hero. Oh well! At least we have Omega, who looks a lot like Gamma when you think about it.

    • You could play as me ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Sonic

        How about no >:D

        • Shadow is better than you

    • Trevin

      If he is playable, he better not be a clone of sonic again.

  • Robknoxious1

    Very nice. My interest level just doubled.

  • Can’t wait. I hope it’s a good 3D sonic game. I miss those…

  • Steven

    Hopefully it’s nothing like The Black Knight or Secret Rings lol. I hope it’s more like Sonic Adventure 2 ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Ever

    The only thing I want to know is if there is going to be a Chaos Garden.

  • Sonic the Hedgehog

    6 more guys?! Hope they ain’t like Knuckles.

    • Qwerty Uiopasd

      Hey, has anyone noticed these guys look like crazy, messed-up Skylanders characters?

  • derty

    Never been a big sonic fan but I’m always excited for others since there is such a big following for him ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wayne Beck

    It’s so Nice to be excited for a Sonic Game again. =)

  • Antar Rodrรญguez

    i wish sonic games could be like sonic adventure again, i didnt really like the last sonic games

    • Magiphart

      I agree completely. No boost button, a variation of characters, and more than just running.

  • Super Buu

    Looking a lot like Sonic Colors which isn’t a bad thing at all!

  • jay

    “Who’s That Pokemon!”

    • Javy G

      It’s Electrabuzz!

    • Michael Ngo

      1st gen again? I don’t think so.

      • Lusunup

        The first gen was the best dont lie :p

        • Michael Ngo

          nah man. 4th is by far the best WITH legitimate reasons.

          • Cubester_64

            Curious. Explain your reasoning Mr. Michael Ngo

          • before we do this, people should not say stupid stuff like “oh its 1st so it’s best no matter what!!!” or “it’s only the 1st season give them a break!!!” because I seriously hate those people -.-

            1) battles in 4th gen used actual moves instead of auto attacking like in 1st; they also had great and diverse moves instead of just using tackle

            2) story was actually meaningful and epic in 4th. It involved not just taking over the world, but a person destroying the whole freakin UNIVERSE and making a new one with his own rules because he hates this current universe.

            3) more diverse species that included other regions’ pokemon

            4) it’s the most violent and dramatic series
            a) a person and her team of 100+ people got KILLED by 2 legendary Pokemon
            b) a person committed SUICIDE
            c) the bad guy actually attempted to kill Ash instead of just getting rid of him
            d) his new rival abuses his weak pokemon

            5) 1st gen was beyond inconsistent; electric types can hit some ground types, a Dragonite knew like 7 moves

            there’s just so much more reasons but I’m not gonna turn this into some essay

          • Cubester_64

            Woah. The way you put it, I agree!

          • Are you being sarcastic? 0_o

          • Cubester_64

            No. Wait, what about Gen 5? Sorry, never played a mainstream Pokรฉmon game before.

          • 5 isn’t so good to be honest. Other than the awkward Pokemon designs, there’s TOO MUCH gimmicky/overpowered items, moves, abilities. The balance is so off now. Some of these overpowered moves are shell smash +2 atk, sp atk, speed, -1 def, sp def. Quiver dance +1 sp atk, sp def, speed. Ability: Prankster – priority +1 for any non damage moves (like thunder wave, agility). Moody – +2 random stat and -1 random stat every turn. Simple – each stat boost is 2x (bulk up now does +2 atk & def) There’s plenty of more reasons

  • david jarman

    My wii u is ready!

  • They all look heavily demon based. Possibly enemies

  • RonnieMexico

    S3ga and nint3ndo are a bunch ov whin3y cry baby quitt3rs

    • Louie

      Is the E button on your keyboard broken or something?
      Or are you just stupid?

      • RonnieMexico

        uz juz a hat3r and racist

        • Louie

          I am not the hater here, I dont frequent this website just say
          “Nintendo sucks, the Wii U is for kids”
          I come here for news on good games like Pikmin 3, X, RE: Revelations, Bayonetta 2, Mario kart etc
          I am also not biased for Nintendo, I own a 360 now and will probably get a PS4 in the future instead of the glorified TV Microsoft have just announced.
          I am not a racist either, why would you even think that.. Oh yeah your a troll…
          by the way you still haven’t told me if the E button works on your keyboard

        • gimpcell

          One that is proud of his race is more than likely racist. I am a Mexican in America. I am racist.

  • Sora Morp

    I hope it’s like unleashed and adventure style (possibly some mario galaxy in there) No 06 crap please

  • JamesJose

    I think they are half friends and half foes, those girls look friendly, and also the big guy in the right

  • Superstick98



    This could be awesome! I want to know more about it now!!

  • shoeses47

    They look like rejected Disney characters…

  • Nintendo4life


  • Sonic

    Lets hope they aren’t as stupid as Silver.

    • Mario

      No offense, but I kinda like Silver.

  • jkalyj

    *Spiked braclets and rounded claws..those horns..dat pony tail…*
    Uh…Did Bowser have 3 more Sons o.O?

  • DragonSilths

    I want it to feel like a combination of Sonic And The Secret Rings or Seven Rings? Forgot the name, and Mario Galaxy…

  • FlyingBoat

    i would prefer these to be villians, or just random enemies, because sonic has enough friends.

  • Phoenix Maybe

    May 29? I can’t take it anymore!!!

  • mojack411

    The octagon panels make me think this is like a board game or strategy game of some sort which would be quite strange for a sonic game.

  • PS4/WiiU

    Awesome, Go SEGA Go

  • Logan Wayman

    One of them looks like a dragon. Hope they reveal them one by one as the time passes.

  • Leo

    I love this Nintendo/Sega love affair. Who would ever thought.

    • DemonRoach

      LOL. Just shows what level Nintendo is at the right now.

  • Dodge Pribyl


  • Michael Jurado

    Oh my god?! NEW SONIC CHARACTERS!! …. I must, DRAW PORN OF IT!!!!!!

    • Mario


  • Honestly, I think these guys will be enemies due to their monstrous forms.

  • Personally, I think these guys will be enemies due to their monstrous appearances.

  • Johny

    cool ๐Ÿ˜€ i cant wait for a new sonic game…. Sonic colors was just SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good.. its among my favourite games on wii ^^

  • BluButton

    Not sure if anyone’s written about this. But this now looks a bit like the rumoured ‘Sonic Dimensions’ game a year ago. There’s an article on TSSZ talking about a game where Sonic splits into 5 different extra playable multiple coloured personalities: Red, orange, purple, green and yellow.

    You can read the article here:

    From what I read, the orange one is meant to be big and slow like* sigh* Big the Cat. The purple one can float a bit like Silver, and the red one can cause explosions or something. If you look at the slight colour on the character silhouettes the colours match.

    I’m not saying those characters are definitely different versions of sonic, but they may have stemmed from that idea.

    And the 6th character in the bottom right corner? I read somewhere else (I forget where) that there’s meant to be an evil version of Sonic too. That’s could be it.

    Then again, they could all just be bosses. That’s speculation for you.

  • Trevin

    I would honestly prefer them as enemies because of how cartoony they look.

  • Martin Kearney

    This looks NOTHING like Sonic Characters. They look like something to come out of Rayman Legends…

  • TaintedXGamer

    i like the one of the far left looks femimine XD
