As promised, today Nintendo and SEGA have unveiled more details about Sonic Lost World, including the Wii U box art for the game, as well as more information about the villains. The silhouette image unveiled last Friday was revealed in the trailer released yesterday, with the villains in the game called the Deadly Six. Dr. Eggman has recruited each of the characters in order to harrass Sonic, but they turned against Dr. Eggman and now Sonic must work with him to defeat them.


Sonic can use new moves in order to jump from platforms without losing speed, as well as using his Color powers to defeat the Deadly Six. For the Wii U, the Color powers will be controlled on the GamePad by tilting, touching and aiming in different directions. The game can also be played on entirely on the GamePad screen. What do you think of these details and the box art? Let us know in the comments below!

      Uh… thanks, but I was expecting a ‘SEXY!’

      • Qwerty Uiopasd

        Wait, what are the six villains called again? The Sexy Six?

  • Christopher Johnson

    oh god no

        Thanks man.

  • Sskenshin

    That is one ugly box art …..

    • Yousif Alromaithi

      I really liked it.

      • Nintedward

        I don’t mind it. It’s ‘good’ 🙂 .

        It’s a minimalist style that fits with what the game is going with. Think of the original Sonic games art morphed into 3D!

        Exciting shit. Day 1 , even if it sucks balls. It’s Sonic FFS!

        • MTGSWE

          I’m also going to buy it day one 😀 Looks amazing!

        • Sonic the Hedgehog

          Thanks for that Nintedward! Even though I’d like to know what FFS means…

          • Nintedward

            it means For F&cks Sake! 😛

        • Yousif Alromaithi

          Who cares about box art. Final Fantasy 13 had a good box art but the game was not that good. Also black knight shared the same thing too. We only care if the game had quality and I believe yes this game would be awesome. If Nintendo worked with sega then the game would be perfect. Sonics black knight was done by sega although it was not big project but this game would be.

    • MTGSWE

      What do you mean? Whats ugly about it?

      • jay

        It’s not hardcore enough. It needs to be grey, brown and black.

        • Guest

          Maybe we should make sonic have blood dripping from his eyes and make the art black and white 😀 That might be hardcore enough for him 😛

          • MTGSWE

            Maybe we should make sonic have blood dripping from his eyes and make the art black and white 😀 That might be hardcore enough for him 😛

            Sorry for double post but one post became Guest

        • Mario

          Whoa man! These kinds of games are for everyone! Not just for teenagers and adults! Let me remind you that Sonic is not the kind of guy that spills blood everywhere! It’s just not his style.

          • Qwerty Uiopasd

            Yeah. I am Shadow, the Ultimate Lifeform, created for destruction by Ivo Robotnik’s grandfather, Professor Gerald. I’m more badass than Sonic because I can use vehicles and guns. I’m talking to you, faker!

          • Mario

            Shadow, on the hand, is the kind of guy who spills blood everywhere.

    • Sskenshin

      I just feel the colors on the words don’t fit but that’s just my opinion. Either way I’m definitely going to get this game! Always loved sonic! He’s part of the reason i started buying multiple consoles back then!

      • Mario

        Me too! Well actually, it’s because of him and Mario that I started playing videogames.

  • It looks good, come on guys. Just a bit of space jam-ness without the Bill Murray cameo….unless….

    • CapnCrumbles436

      Space Jam?! Lol! Yes, totally.


    Love it. Looks great 🙂

  • JWHO

    I dont think its that bad, what makes in ugly?

    • MTGSWE

      Don’t know. I for one love it 😀

    • Cameron

      It looks like a Genesis Sonic box art and Modern Sonic box art had a baby. It’s actually pretty swell if I do say so myself.

    • Revolution5268

      “too colorful”~some dumbass

    • jay

      Who said it was ugly???

      • MTGSWE

        Taco Bell or whatever his name is said it. Seems he’s been dealt with as his comments are gone.

    • Ben Kapferer

      To me, it looks a little too much like some user pasted stock images onto a box-art template. Who knows what others think of it, though…

      EDIT: Now that I look at it again, I’m starting to warm up to the box art (though I think the bad guys should be spread out a little more).

      • Frank

        Yeah, they look like some six headed monster that came from a potion that was just laying out in the open.

    • No Waluigi, that makes the game ugly

      • Lusunup

        you could actually fit well in this game o.0

  • Clel

    Such a silly box-art for such an intriguing title.

  • Jim Wanstall

    this can only be good for Nintendo ,Sonic has a huge world wide fan base , this game I believe is exclusive to wii u , bringing yet more custom to Nintendo .

    • It’s also for 3DS. Still, console versions are almost always better.

    • Denvy

      Only if the game is good. For some reason I’ve got it in my head the 3D Sonics haven’t been that great, but you know, I’ve never actually played or researched any.

  • Nintendofreak

    the dont look so deadly but well ricky didnt look deadly n he killed giant mosters

  • slade6alpha

    Another amazing Wii U box art. Seriously, 101, Pikmin 3, Luigi U… all amazing! Wonder what Wind Waker U will look like… never played it, so I’m hoping some special gold anniversary box art.

    • Cameron

      I would love limited box art! I’m curious what Wind Waker U will be like, as Wind Waker graphically unique at the time with its high intensity cel-shading.

  • Alex Damman

    well, at least we know dr. eggman’s involved, that’s good in my book. and i kind of like the idea of him and sonic being forced to work together, even if it’s been done before.

    the villains still look stupid, but their backstory is intriguing, and i’m warming up to the idea of using the wisps to defeat them. you can tell by their colors that each has a specific weakness. also, at first i thought the sort of goth look they have was kind of wierd, but now i wonder if sega’s trying to pay homage to nintendo wit htheir design, since bowser and the koopalings kind of have those same goth spike bracelets. i didn’t have very high hopes for the story of this game at first, but sega’s starting to prove me wrong!

  • Sonic the Hedgehog

    CHEESE!! Hope that’s a nice pose!

  • Sidney Majurie

    Wonder what the 3DS version will be like. Is it the same game? Can’t wait for this.

  • EvoChamp2015

    Time to make “fanart” of the green girl.

    • Cameron

      People already beat you too it. From what I’ve heard, a lot of them too.

  • Jon

    This game actually looks promising….actually more than that, I may end up buying it.

  • The red one looks good…the best new character for me.

  • wober2

    I love the matte CGI texture on the characters… kind of looks like clay.

  • Sam

    For that title they could’ve made a more epic box art

  • $41809923

    can you play on the wii u pro control ?

    • Cameron

      I hope so!

  • wober2

    i cant believe that i am actually excited for a sonic game! this actually looks like a proper platformer.

    • Sonic the Hedgehog

      Thanks for letting me know!

      • wober2

        sorry but you burned me before…

        • Sonic the Hedgehog


          • Luffy

            By running to fast and to close to him. 😛

      • crocodileman94

        If this game ends up being good, I’ll give you a chilidog.

        • Sonic the Hedgehog


  • ZakAttack7

    Happy with that.

  • Mark Thom
    • jay


      AT LEAST The Wii U had a fu**in graphics jump!!

  • uPadWatcher

    I truly love the official artwork.

  • Wow…exciting news…didn’t expect to unveil so many details about this video game!

  • Kenshin0011

    Hehe, I like that blue emo looking bad guy. lol

    • Isaac Serious

      He is kind of sly looking. I’m thinking he will fight sneaky. The girl looks like a demonic queen bee plant with some witch thrown in. Pikmin comes to mind because it’s a plant insect in their case ants. I think she might use medium range attacks along with the flying bat mage. The feral looking one will be quick and ferocious attacking wildly and the yellow guy looks like he will be a roller! Very much like a Goron. Last you have Big Red who seems like he will just run at you tank style, he will surely take the most damage and might even have a powered-up form.

  • miiandmario

    I thinks it looks awesome and I cant wait to play it

  • UltimateKai453

    THIS IS GREAT!!!! VOTE ME UP/REPLY TO ME IF YOU AGREE! (P.S. i got excitedly more hyped than the generations trailer, i wasn’t that hyped but excited. i am really hyped for this game; me want now!)

  • UltimateKai453


  • Mr. Berzerk

    Ok, comming from as a Guy who has EVERY sonic game, every Sonic Comic (archie published), watched every episode of The Adventures of STH, and SonicSatAM, and been a crazy Sonic fanatic all his life. Even wrote him letters. This game DOES NOT look good. Will I buy and play it? Yes. The issue is it looks like Nickelodeon movie. The Sonic franchise has gone WAY to cheesy since they went with Eggman as a name instead of Dr. Julian Ivo Robotnic. (Yes I know eggman has always been the name to the Japanese. Dr. Julian Ivo Eggman?) Robotnic was dark, hatefull, mean, spitefull, and the antithesis of Sonic. Eggman comes off as more off a Jolly Fat man (Santa), with silly tendancies to want to conquer the world, but a heart of gold. They have really turned the franchise into Mario (Eggman=Bowser more and more). Until they start making the enemies less ‘good at heart’ and more scary, then the games will continue to bomb.

    Robotnic:”Snively, what color is my heart?”

    (creepy noise as he shows his open mouth to Snively)

    Snively:”gulb…I…I…don’t see one Sir.”

    Robotnic: “Exactly…”

    And that is the kind of villain that gets people to play games.

    That is why Gannondorf ressonnates.

    That is why Kefka is the best most hated villain (Well sometimes

    A good game doesn’t come without a good antagonist.

    • MTGSWE

      I have also played most of the sonic games. I’m tired of Sonic trying to be all mature and dark! Personally I like this new approach.

      • Mr. Berzerk

        That is just it. They got it backwards. They made Sonic dark, and didn’t make Eggman dark. He came off as a klutz from a mental asylum that ‘thinks’ he is a genius. Robotnic WAS a genius. An evil Genius. Dr. Willy and Eggman could be swapped and no one would notice. A game can be colourfull without having a childish villain. (Original Sonic Trilogy)

        • MTGSWE

          Yes. That’s true and sometimes I also wish Eggman could try something more sinister.
          I mean his plans and how he execute them. I would though not want a god monster showing up from nowhere and take the spotlight from eggman.
          Eggman can be a bit more evil, but not to the point where it becomes silly.

          • Mr. Berzerk

            When Robotnic made the Ultimate Annihilator in the Sonic comics, THAT story would have translated into a great game, but sadly comic ‘canon’ tried to mimic the game ‘canon’ and they are both going down hill. I do see hope for the comic, with some of the old writers back, but I don’t think we will ever see the ‘revolution’ of the Sonic games. Cross my fingers and hope I’m wrong. Maybe we will get a ‘Skyward Sword’ for Sonic.

    • Guest No. 3

      You can’t make a cartoon character serious! And I love goofy Eggman! He reminds me of Team Rocket!

  • Mr. Berzerk

    Just had to link this

    • Sonic the Hedgehog

      That’s just sick, dude.

  • gigantor21

    NOT ON PC!? D:

    Seriously, though, this looks absolutely amazing. After playing Generations (great game BTW) I’m so jealous of the Wii U owners right now.

  • José Abraham Cervantes Posadas

    I really like the trailer 🙂

  • Guest No. 3

    Looks absolutely fantastic! I love Eggman so much, he’s my favorite Sonic character. I look forward to seeing him in what looks like a truly amazing game.

  • Sami Rautio

    The game looks great even tho it’s just a trailer and it is supposed to make good impression & box art look nice 😀 Here is my thoughts don’t care for my bad enkrish 🙂

  • invible

    I just love the game for what it is but having nice box art is great too. I for one don’t like the colours or font of the text the used to write lost worlds but other than that it is beautiful box art and jus cant wait for this game.

  • Sora Morp

    Awesome though I don’t like the enemy designs. They’re too similar to skylanders characters

  • Denvy

    Looks pretty smooth to me. I like it.

  • Madmagican

    Hmm, I kinda like it

  • Kirbyomega

    Prediction of boss fights:
    1st is the dumb looking yellow guy
    2nd is the crazy looking purple dude
    3rd is the sensei-like mustache light blue dude
    4th is the emo looking indigo guy
    5th is the green chick
    6th (obviously) the big bad looking beefy muscle red man

  • Leo

    I can’t wait! This is a must buy!

  • Jeffrey Debris

    Can’t wait to get my hands on this title. It looks very promising! 🙂
