Sonic Lost World Announced

Recommended Posts

Hey I just noticed something whilst watching this random piece of gameplay: 

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LzYWScdnSfs

 

When Sonic actually jumps on an enemy instead of Homing Attacking or kicking them, he gets a ring.  See around the 30 second mark.  Small, but neat little incentive to try to jump on foes.

 

Reminds me of how there are two ways to defeat Goombas in the Super Mario Galaxy duology-if you defeat a Goomba by spinning into it (the game's standard way of attacking enemies), you get a few Star Bits. But if you defeat a Goomba by instead jumping on it like in past Mario games, you get a coin instead. It's a nice touch.

@SweeCrue: Awesome art!!! I digg it ! : )

 

Also on something somewhat new, has everyone seen this? apparently during Summer of Sonic, SegaNerds Interviewed Iizuka. Its a nice interview and whatnot, but the important or new bit, is he stated the color powers will be a standard for future Sonic games. Wich is not bad, I love wisps, but seriously, this kinda takes away their originality for me, I mean... they are what made Colors Colors! including em in future games wouldnt be too bad, but I dunno how I feel about it.  Read this and the rest of the interview here:

Old news mate. I personally don't mind it, but the wisps will definitely get tiresome if they're in EVERY SINGLE SONIC GAME after Lost World.

Why would it be every single game? I think they'll treat them like characters, they won't appear in literally every game (okay, granted they've barely been using most of the cast recently, but even in the Adventure era days some characters were a bit on and off), but they'll show up if the developers feel like it.

 

So more recurring than guns but less often than Rings and Emeralds. Probably. I dunno it's hard to predict Sonic Team. :v

The announcement is old, but this article is new.  There's definitely stuff that's new and interesting here such as this:

 

Zone: 0: Is it fair to say you’re finding it hard to make full use of certain characters like Shadow and Knuckles? It’s been awhile since they’ve had significant roles in a game?

 

Iizuka: Those sub-characters, Sonic’s friends, play a very important role in the universe. We really do want them to shine. For them to really shine, we have to make sure that Sonic himself actually can take the center stage. We wanted to make sure we focused on Sonic and his gameplay first and made sure that was what we focused on. In the meantime, we’ve had games like Mario & Sonic where the other characters have a place for people to enjoy them. It’s not like they’re completely being sidelined at all.

 

Also, interesting how in the last paragraph Iizuka says the Colour Powers CAN be activated through the Gamepad.  Not to mention the entire game can be played on the Gamepad as well.

 

The third is the Color Power actions can be activated through the GamePad. We feel that this use was the most appropriate because it wasn’t like shoehorning in the hardware features into a Sonic game but was a natural fit. To activate the Color Powers, you can use the touch screen to swipe or moving the GamePad.

Using the touch screen "or" moving the GamePad? So there's going to be different ways to activate/use Wisps?

 

I guess I could see Eagle as being with moving your finger around on the GamePad or simply tilting it or whatever. And laser would probably work either way too. I wonder about Drill and Rocket though...

I think the "can" in this case just meant that's how they're activated. Just like an in game tutorial saying "you can use the A button to jump". While I'd be happy for it to turn out that there are traditional controls available, the touch/motion controls seem too integrated for it.

I thought that there were more control schemes like Wii remote and nunchuck? So there might be other ways, although no pro controller :( ill probably be using the gamepad anyway!

I take the "series staple" statement to mean more that they are becoming something akin to Yoshi in the mario games, they can be used if they want but not every game it level, kinda like mario is coins, mushrooms and Yoshi, sonic would be rings, emeralds and wisps

More like the Wisps will get tiresome if they stay the same every single game after lost world.

So the Nintendo Direct just now showed that Orbot and Cubot are back, along with footage of the Deadly Six's betrayal.

 

I'll post the Direct when it goes on YouTube.

 

EDIT: Nevermind, someone already did.

Man Zavok just gets more and more badass, the fucker basically takes Eggman's Badnik army and has all guns locked on him.

 

Can't wait to see more of the game.

 

Also that Tails Workshop music is just fantastic.

Did the deadly six.......................................................just mind-control BADNIKS?!

 

TAKE MY FUCKING BODY DARK LORD IIZUKA-SAN MY BODY IS READY

 

I wonder if that mind-control could work on Sonic's pals as well to turn them against him? They probably won't do anything too interesting with it but I can dream right?

So the sihouetted Deadly Six members were standing in a pillar's shadow all along. But they are fucking badass with the way they took control of those Badniks (mind control, maybe?) and the gameplay looks fast and fun.

 

... WHY IS THIS NOT COMING FASTER?!

 

EDIT: DAMMIT CHAOS WARP YOU BEAT ME TO THE MIND CONTROL GUESS >:U

Whoop! Mind control on robots! Who knew.

As for Orbot and Cubot coming back, well, we'll probably see them as much as we'll be seeing the Wisps from now on. But who would you rather have? The Wisps or the comedic robots? [bad question, I know]

 

As for being the first thing out of the Direct - I was surprised. I certainly didn't expect it. But it was welcomed.
