A new Sonic Lost World trailer has been revealed for Wii U and 3DS. This trailer shows off Sonic’s color-based powers in the game, which pulls from the earlier release Sonic Colors. The game is scheduled to be released on October 22nd in North America.

What do you think of this new trailer? Are you still interested in the game? Let us know in the comments below!

    Looks like it’s going to be a blast.

    • Zombie Boy

      I agree. I’ve been looking forward to this for so long. I haven’t enjoyed a Sonic game since the Genesis, but this looks like it could be a lot of fun πŸ™‚

      • Dez

        Read my thoughts exactly.

        The Sonic games post-Genesis seemed to have low budgets, been rather lackluster (still liked Shadow the Hedgehog) and frankly they just didn’t have the same vibe I remember playing on Genesis. So many Sonic games on Genesis, they were so fun, too. Though I do prefer the original Sonic, themes, and plot over the revamped one they’ve done recently except this one actually looks amazing.

        I’m definitely considering picking up this Sonic game.

  • Andrew

    Day one buy!

  • Baum γ€Œγƒ„γƒͺー」

    Guess they want to give us a mix of the best Sonic games/concepts, huh?
    I actually like how the game looks and I was never that much of a Sonic fan (wich means I never owned or played any Sonic game…)

    • Luffy

      as a long time sonic fan, i cant encourage you enough to give this one a try!
      it looks to capture the best of each games!

  • e_rocket

    Looks cool, and my niece is a sonic fan, so I think I’ll get it

  • Juan Benitez

    The Background and the animation is phenomenal. THis is an instant buy!

    • Yousif Alromaithi

      Picking this game up because this year Wii U will hit big.

  • John Andalora

    Not personally interested.
    I predict it’s going to suffer what so many others do: it’s going to be too fast, to the point where people can’t tell where enemies are going to be, and cause problems. I know other people like it and want that, and kudos to them, but I liked the Old Sonic for being somewhat slower, but not too slow, at least giving you a chance to see the enemies you face.

    • XroyD

      You have the option of running fast. You can walk normal or run

      • John Andalora

        Not with the powers. You can’t “walk or run” with most of those, especially music beat or digger.

    • ICHI

      I was actually interested in this one because one of the designers said for the first time in years they were allowed to slow it down and the movements of sonic are tweaked depending on the level design. Could be total bull but it’s got me hesitantly interested for now.

  • Lil J Moore

    Sonic games are always better on Nintendo consoles

    • Steves Job


      • Even Steve Jobs knows that’s not true.

    • Mario

      True. Sonic does feel at home on Nintendo. Even thought Sonic is not a Nintendo made character, it sometimes feels like if he is one.

  • ezquimacore

    I like this

  • discuss

    I bought Sonic Colours for the Wii to check it out. I’m not amused by it so I’ll probably skip this one to.

    • everyone

      I wouldn’t count this down like Colors. I liked that one but the sections of serious platforming where the camera zooms out were pretty awful.

  • Luffy

    This is my most anticipated game of the year!
    simply cannot wait!

    edit: oh! and ill get both (3DS & Wii U)

    • Yousif Alromaithi

      On Wii U my most anticipated is Wind Waker HD and Pikmin 3. 3DS is probably a link between worlds and awakening. Awakening came out and I am on my second play through.

      • Akatosh

        I have the same wish list except with PokΓ©mon X as opposed to awakening.

        • Yousif Alromaithi

          I love pokemon but no game can replace awakening.

      • Squid

        My most anticipated Wii U games this year are Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3, and Wind Waker.
        3DS Games are Pokemon X, Zelda link between worlds, and Mario and Luigi.

        • Yousif Alromaithi

          Amazing list I am picking those up for sure and no doubt will sell just like at donkey kong 3ds everybody bought the game even though it came on 2010.

    • everyone

      Hek yeah. I’m getting both too. Gameplay looks awesome for this and the 3DS one

  • $39063977

    hell yeah! I can’t believe the amount of creativity that went into this game. everything i’ve seen so far has totally amazed me – and i’m a very hard to please gamer. Good job SEGA! looks like you are bringing sonic back in the game. I like the colours, the graphics, the fact that you can slow down a bit, the possibilities and options, everything looks quite out there

    • Michael Jurado

      I love the parcour

      • Mario

        It’s spelled “parcour”.

        • Michael Jurado

          what the fuck ever it’s in this game lol

  • The Clockwork Being

    Sega playing the smart move.

    Sega:OH Look Wii U has alot of 1st party games coming at the end of the year but they still need that 3rd party push might as well support this to up the install base. Everyone knows you need software to the hardware. Since thats the point lets make an exclusive Sonic game that uses the gamepad in a smart way

    EA:LEts make lazy ass ports and sell them. SInce we think the Wii U install base is filled with idiots.

    • NkoSekirei

      well we all know EA is run by pansies

      • Gabrielsen

        And thats how they got the award as the worst company in 2012

        • Squid


        • Bob Charlie

          EA avatar!

    • ItzameyaToad

      Sega is also playing a smart move by going exclusive with a few of Sonics games. This as well as Ubisofts support in the beginning will bring in much more sales down the road for these company’s seeing as people are willing to support a early supporter of a console.

    • gamesplayswill

      EA: Let’s make games cost Β£70 in Europe (true story) and slag off the Wii U even though we are the dicks!

    • Cyrus

      Well, about EA true, they really are gready Btards and well deserved their “prize” of being the worst company (again!).

      But about SEGA… They are just a money driven company like any other. Which is not such a bad thing, everyone has to make money.

      I just want to say they don’t do that out of Nintendo love. If it were for Nintendo love, then why is Sonic racing transformed a multiplat? Because they want to sell more game and get money. Why are there Nintendo exclusives coming? Because Nintendo paid for them! It’s simple as that.

  • Christopher Acuna

    Well this game looks effin fantastic!

  • Your money

    hmm, 6 wisps vs the deadly 6? I think speculations are correct

  • I can’t decide whether these are silly or awesome :3

    • Andrew

      why not both? πŸ™‚

      • this guy.

      • Squid

        Lego City Undercover in a nutshell. I love that game.

        • Andrew


  • I_I

    I can’t wait for Sonic I’ll buy both for the Wii U and the 3DS. Who said Wii U has no games

  • thedeciderU

    i have a feeling this game will be hit or miss for many. i like the quirky yelled announcements of sonic’s color powers – it definitely has sega written all over it haha. btw, they need to make a new die hard arcade-style dynamite cop game. i’d buy it on the eshop in an instant.

    like someone else who posted earlier though, i haven’t truly enjoyed a sonic game since the genesis, so i will have to play this before i consider buying. there are lots of impressive games coming out this fall for all systems, so it’ll be tough to decide where i put my money.

  • I_I

    it’s Like a Mario Galaxy cross Sonic from the good old day’s in a Neo Geo Arcade environment

  • MississaugaMaverick

    this game looks really fun! gonna put it on my to get list for when i get a U

  • Ducked

    It’s not Sonic Adventure 3, but this does look pretty fun.

    This game still needs more exposure.

  • sdmac200600


  • Mitch Hall

    Cool, it looks like this will end up being a spiritual successor to Colors (which was a great game.)

    They could have polished the graphics a bit more (textures look rather muddy), but whatever. I’m sure it will still be fun to play.

    • bobbybangin

      Don’t forget to have to manually change the video quality to 720p on the trailer. I’m sure the graphics will look much better on the actual system than this youtube video.

  • Josiah Parsons

    Looks like Sonic Colors mixed with Super Mario Galaxy, aka my favorite Sonic game and my favorite Super Mario game.

  • Leo

    Looks fantastic! I will buy it for sure!

  • FlyingBoat

    but… but… I want to play pokemon y… its released only ten days earlier πŸ™

  • starwars360

    Cannot wait for this game. Sonic is back into classic form and biggest and better then ever. It gotta look like. πŸ˜€

  • FungalSpawn

    Looks good, gameplay looks horrible.

    • $41809923

      i think so to hear that it won’t have all the color powers in the wii u

      • Mario

        But it will have new color powers!

    • Patrick Francis

      I never played the any sonic game with the “colors” but it looks like a bunch of mini-games randomly put in the middle of sonic levels.

      • Michael Jurado

        Colors are the shit it makes sonic games actually enjoyable, see before you could basically hold right on the directional pad and beat a sonic game sure you had to jump but that was basically it. Colors give a variety of things to do, I myself can’t wait to see this game in my hands ^_^

  • Yoshi5081

    That means that Zelda will be available early in oct.

  • Wanderlei

    Feels like its gonna be a flood of games after the drought.

  • Mochlum

    October is gonna hurt my wallet almost as much as September. (shakes fist) Nintendooooo….

    • Luca Invernizzi


  • Yoshi5081

    That means that Wind Waker will be available early in Oct.

  • Linskarmo

    Looks pretty cool to me, but I can’t be sure about it with what little I know. It could end up totally awesome or a bit of a letdown for me. I’ll see soon enough.

  • Baconfat23

    I really wish they didn’t put colour powers in this game. As it is right now I feel like they were just thrown in for the heck of it, unless it really explains it throughout the game. If it was something more like Colours I would of been able to accept it easier.

    • Michael Jurado

      I think it’s awesome that Colours made it into the game now we get to do something besides run fast and jump πŸ˜€

  • commonsense boy




  • Michael Jurado

    I like this Sonic game because, you can actually see what you are doing.

    Yo they should let us mix powers in this game πŸ˜€

  • boynhisblobs

    Looks really good for a sonic game. Hoping this will be one of the best ones to date.

  • $39063977

    the one thing that concerns me are the extra powers added to the game. i would have preferred a more core Sonic experience. they could view the prospect of more variety in future installments. this should be the game that brings Sonic back in the game, like the very first on genesis. sonic rebirth so to speak

  • fireheartis1

    Can’t wait for this game to come out. Another game I’m going to pick up on day one. Better start saving up the money lol.

  • companyoflosers

    meh, who cares. sonic fans are a ficke bunch. promise them a good sonic game, they swear it looks amazing then complain its not good and didnt live up to their expectations when it comes out. theyll swear it didnt capture what they loved about sonic from their childhoods. well guess what? we were dumb kids, it didnt take much to make us think a game was good back then. maybe, just maybe the original sonic games werent actually that good! actually looking at the game mechanics, sonic was never anything groundbreaking or innovative, so why did we love it so much?

    • Patrick Francis

      I enjoyed all of the original Sonics (The first 3), and it has a completely different feel than any other Side-Scroller. Sonic IV: Episode 1 and 2 are my favorite Sonic Games to date, and they are very similar to the original.

      No other game has very high speed platforming and I always enjoy the boss battles.

  • I think I am gonna get this. It almost has a “galaxy” feel to it!

  • david jarman

    I soooooo want this game!!!!!!!
