SEGA has finally released the official trailer for Sonic Lost Worlds for the Wii U. The game will see exclusive release on Wii U and 3DS and is part of Nintendo and SEGA’s exclusive partnership that will span three different games. Let us know what you think about the trailer below and remember, those character portraits are being unveiled tomorrow!

  • Nintedward

    ”The game will see exclusive release on Wii U and 3DS and will span three different games.”

    Ash can you please expand upon that ? Are you refering to Games such as Mario and Sonic at the olympics or other Sonic (lost worlds) games ?

    • We know the current partnership between Sega and Nintendo is good for three games. Those are probably Sonic Lost Worlds related, since the Olympics game is kind of a given. We’ll see. No confirmation on any of this, so I’ve updated my wording.

      • Nintedward

        Right. I thought it was STUPID when people were saying that MARIO and Sonic would be included in a 3 game exclusivity deal……

        If we’re getting THREE Exclusive sonic games , that’s HUGE. It could span 4-5 years or the entire Wiiu’s life :S

        • Robknoxious1

          I’ll agree it would be very unnecessary for M&S at the Olympics to be listed as one of the exclusives. Can’t say I’d put it past marketing people though. Fingers crossed.

        • AceRuby

          Mario & Sonic is apart of the deal actually its been reported on other sites and Iwata himself said it actually in the Nintendo Direct. Sonic Lost World , Mario & Sonic and a 3rd Unknown game are the trinity of the deal.

          • Guest No. 3

            I watched the direct and I heard nothing of the Olympics being part of the deal…

          • Nintedward

            Yeah…. but why the heck would they include a game that has Mario in it ? It wouldn’t need to be in the deal. it’s a given that it would be exclusive.

  • Thomas Fitzgibbon

    Super Sonic Galaxy?

    • Devilus

      Google Sonic Xtreme, if its anything like Galaxy then the big N ripped off Sega a long time ago.

      • Alex

        Nintendo always makes great games, so I don’t think this is a ripped off, plus Sonic Extreme and Sonic Advanture 2 are similar Advanture game that became great Sonic game.

      • Elem187

        I looked it up, Sonic extreme looks like it was ripped from Mario 64… I see no gravity shifting in it…. Looks like a static map, like Mario 64.

    • LinksCafe

      You. Beat. Me. To. It. One of my very first thoughts was “this reminds me of Galaxy a bit.” Lol I was gonna type “Super Sonic Galaxy”.

      I definitely like the feel of this game.

      • Josiah Parsons


      • Elem187

        You say it like its a bad thing 😉
        Galaxy was just brilliant on so many levels, i’ll gladly take another companies vision of the same gravity changing game.

        • LinksCafe

          Oh no, trust me, it’s a GREAT thing! I absolutely adore the Galaxy series and find it awesome that the Sonic team is taking a page from it. I’m really looking forward to seeing how it unfolds.

      • WarioForever

        Same, lol!

    • CapnCrumbles436

      Sonic, meets Mario Galaxy, meets Mega Man lol. I can dig it.

    • Wayne Beck

      Call it what you will, that looks wicked good. Semi-Open with old-school Throwbacks.

      They got me excited.

    • Madmagican

      And I thought I had an original idea for once…
      you beat me to it
      regardless, this game looks to be pretty good

    • Sam

      That’s exactly what it is. SMG was one of the most popular games in history, so maybe they’re trying to re-create that.

    • Johny

      DAMN YOU xD … i comented that in youtube video and wanted to do it here to… you beat me to it !

    • Rob

      I would totally happily play super sonic galaxy!

    • Alex Damman

      ermahgherd you beat me to it!
      the villains look… kind of stupid. i’m sorry, but they just don’t look like they belong in a sonic game. the gameplay, on the other hand… whoowhee! to me it looks like the gameplay is going to be either a massive success or a catastrophe of apocalyptic proportions. i’ll only be able to tell once i get my hands on it.

      • Alex Damman

        one thing i kind of hope for, though, is another. game like colors/unleashed day stages/generations modern stages. i know people probably feel like it’s been done to death already, but i feel like they never really perfected and purified it. in sonic unleashed it was broken up by the night stages, which were tedious. it was much better in colors, but the wisp powerups were distracting, the level design was kind of wierd, there was more 2d than 3d, which i hated, and how they executed quickstepping and drifting was immensely stupid. they finally perfected it in generations, but it was again broken up by the classic stages, and i’m not a big fan of sonic 2d platforming, other than the occaisional 2&1/2d portions in unleashed. i hope that they make just one more no gimmicks, pure 3d (and OCCAISIONAL 2&1/2d), no night stages, no classic stages, pure sonic game in this style. just ONE before they put the gameplay to rest, another after that would be kind of stale, but still, JUST ONE MORE SEGA, PLEASE!

        • Ty J Sides

          I understand where you are coming from but 2d sonic is where it all started and they with never get rid of that! it would be like nintendo never making another mario brothers game, they would be getting rid of the thing that made them popular in the first place.

      • Mario

        Those guys are probably aliens that are invading Sonic’s world. We’ll see how they’ll work out when the game is release.

    • GuardiansFan

      for those who wanted mario galaxy on the wii u we basically have it there….

    • Xavier Lopez Chabelo

      Nope, its more like Sonic Xtreme.

    • Yeah, looks like Super Waluigi Galaxy

    • Sonic the Hedgehog

      The good thing is those weirdoes ain’t my friends…. and now I can run up walls! I’m awesome!

  • Mr. Berzerk

    Ya, doesn’t look all that ‘fresh’. I’ll probably still buy and play it though.

    • Devilus

      Well its basicly Sonic Xtreme(the canceled sonic game that was nearly finished and made as an anwser to mario 64) with updated graphics.

  • CEObrainz

    Watching this trailer made me think what was Sega was trying to pull off with this. Hopefully there will be more to the game-play than what as shown. But it still looks plenty interesting.

    • wober2

      The gameplay intrigued me the platforming actually looks like it comes from sonic’s roots on the sega genesis.

  • Devilus

    Sonic Xtreme comes back to life!!!

    • Cubester_64

      (Sorry for immaturity, but this is the best idea ever! Well, 2nd best. Waffle Toaster is 1st place)

  • wober2

    This looks great I like how they took the old 3d tube levels from sonic 2 and meshed it with parts of 2d level design like mario galaxy. It actually looks challenging though, so i hope at least. I am surprised how good this looks, i was nervous about a new sonic game.

  • Christopher Johnson

    looks like shit

    • Nintendo4life


    • gamesplayswill

      I wouldn’t call it “shit” but it does look like another dark knight all over again…

    • Shaise Mughal

      You havent even played it yet, you cant just judge games via a trailer you know! And this was just a trailer before the release too!

  • PS4/WiiU

    I really like this trailer, although I was excpecting waaaay better. I am actually a bit dissapointed but I will still buy it and probably love it

  • Ony

    Get off the Dreamworks characters and it would be hype hype hyper.

    And it’s me or the trees looks like trees from Mario games ? *google* oh em, seems to be a nope. But it has the feeling of a Mario game okay ? ಠ_ಠ

    I really hope the third Sonic game Nintendo will get with they partnership will be a Sonic Adventure-like, with CHAOS GARDEN.

    • Shaise Mughal

      I cant wait when they announce the 3rd game! Maybe they’ll announce it at E3?! It would be sweet if this partnership with Nintendo & Sega lasts forever! ( that rhymes )

      • Ony

        Perfect world: Nintendo buy SEGA and get back RARE.
        (+ Metroid by Retro Studio, Banjo Threeie, Donkey Kong 64 Wii U and tons and tons of drooling the sh*t out of me :B)

    • jay

      I swear some of the sound effects sounded ripped from Mario’s universe.

    • AceRuby

      Honestly I want that legendary crossover game already with Mario & Sonic seriously it can be done especially if they get both Tokyo EAD and Sonic Team to help on it.

  • Leo

    It looks amazing!!! I need a WiiU now!!!

  • Super Buu

    Looks great. But why dubstep? Why not Crush 40? I like Crush 40…

    • Shadriczo

      Crush 40 hasn’t been confirmed yet. So we’ll just wait and see. *gives you candy for not lying* 🙂

    • Wtf?

      Since when was that dubstep? Do you even know anything about electronic music?

      • Super Buu

        I honestly can’t tell the difference.

    • Chris Heskin

      CRUSH 40 RULES!

  • Nintendo4life

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

  • Looks like Sonic meets Super Mario Galaxy. Looks cool though.

  • Nicolas Dorion

    glad to see they’re done with the ‘realist’ sonic games (we all remember sonic 06 right?)

    • Frank

      NEVER MENTION THAT GAME !!!! 06 IS A DISASTER THAT NEVER SHOULD’VE HAPPENED !!!! How that game is still being talked about is BEYOND me.

      • D.M.T

        Lol calm down. Just be happy that the game was never released on Nintendo systems because it was so bad

        • Shaise Mughal

          Maybe Sega knew that!, and deliberately released a bad game on those systems! Sega: Take that for throwing me out of the console market which was rightfully mine! Now I’m gonna miss competing Nintendo!

          • Frank

            It’s just painful to remember that game. Sonic deserved better, WE deserved better. Plus the romance with Sonic and that red-haired-after thought-princess was completely ridiculous.

        • Cubester_64

          I think it also had to do with the Wii not being out yet, or the Wii not being “powerful enough”. I bet the PSX could run Sonic ’06!

  • Leo

    It would be great if they renamed the game for “Super Sonic Galaxy”. It could be a twistted brother of “Super Mario Galaxy”. It would be brilliant as a marketing strategy!

  • Joey

    This is gonna be awesome, i love most Sonic games cannot wait

    for this one for the Wii U

  • Nintendofreak

    people bitching about the graphics n cartoony characters in 5 4 3 2 1 ….GO!!

    • jay

      Wind Waker Baby GAEM!

    • Nikko Ybanez

      sonic is gay, the characters are gay too because it’s for babies first its on a nintendo console and cartoonier than daffy duck on meth!!!!……just kidding don’t hurt me

      • Nintendofreak

        too late ….look out your window…..muwahaha

  • slade6alpha

    Wii U will be fine, hope Nintendo inks more of these exclusive partnerships. The graphics look great to me, not sure why people are complaining.

    • Shaise Mughal

      Yeah, these platforming games are SUPPOSED to be cartoonish, so they dont need graphical efforts, its the gameplay thats fun!

    • Elem187

      Shenmue 3 next, Nintendo.

  • CapnCrumbles436

    Pretty cool. I’m sure there is more variety here. We are just being given a little taste.

  • Ony


    • AceRuby

      Well Jun is the sound director at Sonic Team now so I would imagine he will have input on the game.

  • Phoenix Maybe

    1) This game has a very Mario galaxy-ish feel to it.
    2) Is sega trying to implement parkour into this game? I hope it doesn’t break up the action because so far all the parkour-ish moves seem to chop up the experience sort of ruining the flow of the game(except for that wall-running move that one seemed to fit right in)

    • Ony

      I really liked the way you could move around almost everywhere in Sonic Adventures. Just rush and rush without taking time to look at the beautiful environment was a shame… so it would be great if the camera can turn 360°.

      And Parkour is like the martial art of France. That’s cool, but I hope Sonic will not earn a mustache, stripped shirt and running around at le speed of sound with a baguette under his arm ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  • D.M.T

    I will buy this day 1. I’m a big Sonic fan and this game looks fun

  • uPadWatcher

    I’m buying it for the U.

  • ancientgamer

    i would like to see a mario n sonic game thats not sports, maybe something along the lines of the mario n luigi games from sp n ds.

    • ancientgamer

      they have been buttin heads since i was a kid would be nice to see them team up for once, thats something you would never of thought possible 20 years ago

    • Shaise Mughal

      Oh yeah, mario and sonic in a platforming adventure!

  • Take my money! Looks like a very fun game from this trailer so yeah, take my money.

  • peeer

    Wow! This Sonic game almost feels like Sonic Adventure 1 on Dreamcast!!!

    That was like the best Sonic game of all time!

  • gamesplayswill

    Just stop Sega, sonic doesn’t work well when it’s gravity based or “gimmicky” I guess.
    I really am longing for sonic adventure 3 with no auto level playing shit or annoying characters that get in the way of the fun.

    • jay

      Gameplay is NEVER “gimmicky” dude.

      Watching The Price Is Right on a gaming console is.

      • gamesplayswill

        Never once mentioned Gameplay.
        But your on to something with the price is right thing – U 0
        Well I just don’t think it’ll be any good jay, what do you think?

        • Cameron

          And that is your opinion. This game looks pretty awesome to a lot of people, myself included, and weather or not you love or hate it, it’s still going to sell a ton of Wii Us.

      • gamesplayswill

        But seriously though I really hate the auto playing in most missions.
        Like when you don’t have to press a button at a certain bit because you just let the speed things on the floor (cannot remember the name for them)
        do the job for ya.

  • Squid

    I have a few comments on this. First of all, tails does not have any significance in this trailer. Second. The gameplay looks like its been downgraded from generations (not that I care though). Third, I’m not sure how Mario galaxy gameplay can fit with Sonic’s Speed (big fan of his modern controls) . And finally, voice acting seems absent in this based on the villains.

    • Chris Heskin

      well sonic has always “borrowed” from the plumber imo and it’s worked out well in the past.

    • Personally, I don’t think Sonic or Mario games need voice acting.

  • Luke Wilson

    This actually looks good when compared to Sonic06 lol

    • AceRuby

      Were have you been lol? Go play Sonic Colors and feel refreshed again 😉


    Love it. Looks great and gameplay seems awesome.

  • David Rampa

    heres proof that nintendo makes games better. good time to own a wii u

  • Antar Rodríguez

    it looks great but apparently my hopes for a game like sonic adventure have been crushed

  • andré

    it looks like Sonic Xtreme, the game to sega saturn that were canceled.. YEAH!!!!

  • Ryebread

    Game looks great! I just hope there is a Chao Garden.

    • gamesplayswill

      I don’t think there will be with this style of game play.

  • Malik Gilbert

    I honestly am a high sonic fan but idk if I like this ….. I’m all forthr 3D gameplay

  • David Rampa

    if anyone wonders – cinema – benny benassi, gary go is the song. =P

    • jay

      Sounded a little familiar.

    • Cameron

      Thank you, was wondering.

  • link2nintendo

    …didn’t they just unveil the characters??…

    • They did, but we know nothing about them. That’s coming tomorrow.

  • ZakAttack7

    Me gusta 😀

    • Guest No. 3

      Me gusta el videojuego de Sonic porque es divertido. 😀

      • ZakAttack7

        Yeah about that… I don’t actually speak Spanish 😉

        • Guest No. 3

          Tengo una clase de Espanol.

          • ZakAttack7

            Wait… wait… I got this… Take a class in Spanish! Riiiiight? Riiiiiiiight?

          • Guest No. 3

            That’s, “I have a Spanish Class.” You were close.

          • ZakAttack7

            Eh, close enough 😛

  • Chris Heskin


  • Shadriczo

    Hope no one compares this to the new pacman game coming out soon.

  • Infamizmikep

    Disappointed! I was hoping for a Sonic Adventure type platform! I don’t know if developers are getting lazy but these type of games which looks as if their constructed to play only one way and not open world is getting horrible! Give the fans what they want! Please!

  • Sonic and Tails~Mario and Luigi(What about me,as assistant?)

  • LarryGobbles

    If I were the monsters I def would have attacked him when he knelt in front of the animals staring at the ground

  • MasterPpv

    Speedruns of this are going to be fun… =D

  • Draud

    No Mario Galaxy 3. Sonic has got it covered.

  • Manuel Mendoza

    This game definitely has Sonic Adventure series elements…
    apart from previous recent sonic titles, Im totally confident in this game! CANT WAIT!

  • Nice Ness

    Pause and stare at top left at 0:50 and pause at 1:03 for a Sonic Colors suprise! 😉

  • Mario

    First, I like the new gameplay! Second, the stages do look a bit Super Mario galaxy. And third, I AM GETTING THIS FREAKING AWESOME GAME!!!!!

  • ItzameyaToad

    Am trying to get in to the Sonic games anyone reccomend the best starting point? I have played a level or two of the original Sonic at a friends house along time ago but haven’t got in to Sonic but really want to.

    • Lurk Kent

      Sonic adventure 1 & 2 are a good place to start in my opinion. both are available on psn and (i think)xbox live

      • ItzameyaToad

        Alright thanks!

      • Joel

        Sonic Generations is awesome. Start there. (If you can’t play it, then Sonic Colors is also quite good.)

    • Arthur Jarret

      Best place to start is the Sonic Mega Collection (for PS2 or Gamecube if you have one) to get most Retro games.

      Why this game? Because I suggest starting with the Sonic 3, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Sonic & Knuckles games.

      • Gabe Hoffman

        Sonic CD I think is a good choice too

        • Arthur Jarret

          Right, he should pick up the gems collection too then CD alone is worth it, and you get most gamegear games. Try not to play Sonic R and Sonic the fighters though – people have died playing these games.

    • Guest No. 3

      Sonic Colors/Generations are the best most up-to-date options. Avoid 06 at ALL COSTS.

    • Gabe Hoffman

      If you want up to date get Colors or Generations. If want to experience the Genesis games get Sonic Mega Collection for Gamecube or PS2

  • Gabe Hoffman

    Sonic meets Mario Galaxy= Epic!

  • Freez0

    This looks so damn sick!

  • Def inspired by he cancelled saturn title (I think). Im optimistic..

  • devmiles

    looks interesting and certainly idea’s from the never released 32 bit sega saturn sonic and a mixture of dreamcast sonic stuff, i can dig this too..

  • Cameron

    I like Sonic games, but its most recent instalments (except generations, that one is excellent) are somewhat disappointing. This, however, does not look bad. I think sonic team finally remembered how to make good Sonic games. I’m actually pretty excited!

    • Cameron

      And Colors, I forgot Colors was really good too.

      • Arthur Jarret

        So actually, the last four sonic installments were great.
        (Sonic colors DS, Sonic colors Wii, Sonic Generations 3DS, Sonic Generations console)

        That’s a pretty good recent run.
        I also liked Sonic 4 Episodes 1 and 2, myself. It seems Sonic has definitely outran his bad streak.

  • miiandmario

    I thought this trailer was awesome and I absolutely cannot wait for game. I’ve been a huge sonic fan for years and this game looks amazing.

  • Logan Wayman

    Hopefully, the Deadly Six would start off bad, but turn out good.

  • I_I

    this game will pave the way for Sonic X Mario Action Platform game cross over

    Nintendo & Sega make it a realty for gamers and history sake

  • FlyingBoat

    that looks amazing. it looks exactly like how the first ever game would look if they ported it into 3d. no stupid gimicks like having guns or turning into a warehog, just platforming, and going back to the origional story of protecting the cute little bunnies and birdies. the graphics look awesome, and while it looks reminisant of galaxy, i highly doubt they’ll be messing with gravity. Im also so happy those new characters are villians. sonic has too many friends, but six villians to act as bosses, that works.
    It looks like sega have indeed learnt their lesson from games like shadow and 06. they got a good engine with unleashed, made a good platformer with colours, expanded on it with generations, and now they very well may have perfected it, and its an nintendo exclusive.

    • Cameron

      If colors and generations are any indication of Sonic’s fututre, I’d agree with everything you just said

  • Kirbyomega

    Looks like monkey ball.

  • Michael Jurado

    YES YES YES YES nintendo did it right! thank you sega for teaming up omg finally a sonic game I actually WANT! <3

  • Kaihaku

    2013? Now that excites me.

  • david daniel wharton camacho

    i feel i will throw up, the camera movements are bad 🙁
    i wanted to sing tho, “you are, my cinema, i could watch you for ever”

  • Mark P

    Sonic Xtreme? Is that you?

  • Mark P

    When I first heard the title I thought it was a Jurassic Park crossover.

  • BW912

    Great, hopefully I can hook my genesis to it so knuckles can be a playable character LOL. J/K

  • Sonic finally comes back to reclaim his former glory! First Generations and now this, get hype!

    • Guest No. 3

      Don’t forget colors. 😛

  • DavEd

    The Level shown graphics look poor and the badniks models are bad compared to older sonic games like Colors, Generations or Unleashed, those games were awesome (not only for their graphics), but this new kind of gameplay is really good, they can upgrade the game graphics to make another awesome game, there is time for that.

    • ItzameyaToad

      Really for all we know this is an earlyier video of the games graphics so really in the span from when this video was made to launch we could see some improvements.

      • DavEd

        Yeah that´s right, that looks like a pre-beta version

  • Adam John Manns

    Oh my gosh! It’s the remastered version of the cancelled Sega Saturn game Sonic X-treme. AWESOME!!

  • Cut screen and in-game graphic trickery. I guess they have to make it appear like ti can do what the other two can do.

    • CyanideInsanity

      Let me guess, you have no attitude towards other games having cinematic trailers on PC or other consoles, instead of pure ingame footage?

      • Dude!! Don’t you know the cut scenes in GTA 5 are gonna be epic… And it is rated M so that automatically makes it a better game for the hardcore gamer.


        Not Sarcasm – Don’t bother with this one. He is a lost cause… He is here just to hate and try and cause arguments with his lies and insults. Best to move on and ignore.

      • jay


        I just realized he mentioned “the other two”.

        PS4 and XBOX ONE have only showed cinematic scenes!!!

        L O L


    • jay

      “Cut screen and in-game graphic trickery”

      Sony’s Favorite trick!!

      Hey what you doing in the “Baby Gaemez” section?

  • Sidney Majurie

    Sonic Dub Step Muthaf&$!@’s!

    I need this game!

  • Leo

    Now Nintendo just needs Rare back and that’s it. GAME OVER. Flawless victory!

  • Alex Damman

    i just saw on another website that they’re bringing the wisp powers back. a lot of people might be looking forward to this, but i’m gonna say PLEASE SEGA DON’T LET THIS BE TRUE!
    not that i didn’t like the wisp powers, but one game was enough as far as i’m concerned.

    • Guest No. 3

      They’ll probably have some different powerups. Wisps were a good gameplay introduction. I doubt that what this trailer shows is ALL the gameplay we’ll be seeing.

  • I need to poof £200 out of nowhere. I was going to wait for Bayonetta 2 to get a Wii U, but this…mmm



  • Mr. Nick

    Whoa! That was pretty wicked.

  • $39063977

    damn that was cool. looks pretty intense. we all miss that feeling. bring it on Sega!

  • Cool, looks like a Sonic game I may enjoy.
