Sonic Lost World Announced

Recommended Posts

Looks like I'll have to ask for a Wii U this Christmas, if this game is out during that period. Surpised it's not on PS3/Xbox 360. Well it's Sonic Colours deja vu, on a Nintendo System lol.

Wow, Sega. Now I should wait ANOTHER 2 years (how I'm tired of that) *sign* for a game. Cause I'm not getting a Wii U just for this. You made my day, Sega. Really dissapointed.

 

But I should admit, it looks damn impressive.

I supported your fucking games on my Genesis, on my Dreamcast, on my PS2 and now on my PS3. And now you're gonna kick me in the balls by slowly turning Sonic into a Nintendo IP. Well, thanks, SEGA.

 

So you missed out on supporting Sonic where he was most prelevant? On Nintendo products through the GBA, Gamecube, DS, Wii and 3DS?

 

He's kinda been Nintendo's personal underdog for a long time running. Colours selling more on just the Wii than all four of the Generations versions together is living proof of that, and now he's actually being worked on personally by Nintendo along Sonic Team. It's not that much of a surprise, once you get past the oldschool rivalry shock.

Well it's not like Sonic isn't already homogenized with Nintendo properties as is. A majority of all Sonic sales stem from them, and while one could make the case that they're locking out a base that isn't on there, your second sentence sums it up rather well. It's an extended deal with Sega, so much like Bayonetta 2 it's possible that Nintendo will treat the property with utmost care.

 

 

Still disappointing for me as a fan of the franchise.

I'm not really very interested in the Wii U, or any Nintendo property at the moment, and given that Sonic and Nintendo IP's are the only things worth getting on the system, it doesn't look like I'll be getting one for the foreseeable future. Which basically means, I have to miss out on dem Sonic games for as long as Nintendo holds on to the Sonic franchise.

 

I hope though, that this game and/or future games, go by the way of Rayman Legends, in that it becomes multiplatform (NOT randomly and pointlessly getting delayed) later down the line.

'eh, I just got a 360, not likely to get a new console anytime soon. But the next one will be a Wii U for sure. And mostlikely I will have i before this game is out, so this is pretty cool.

 

I'm really not sure what to make of this, though. We only have one image to go by. Hopefully it'll turn out interesting. It would be cool if it is made up of lost stages from past games, but I'm not so sure about that.

Well, I was hoping for a PC release, however what I do see from this is that Sega sees that the Wii-U could use a boost, and with the proper support could get an edge on the other consoles, and are not nessecarily against nintendo. That being sy I do hope for something on the PC soon since the only 'new' consoles I am getting soon is old sega ones XD

No, Nintendo's running a program in which programmers and other people from Nintendo help other companies develop games. SEGA is just one of these, and this will be the first Sonic product by both SEGA -and- Nintendo working together.

 

However you look at this, it's going to be a big landmark in the Sonic series.

 

Oh I see. Yeah, that is quite profound...

 

Still it doesn't mean Sonic isn't Sonic anymore. It just means the games are only on one console, a bit like how Oddworld games were once exclusive to Microsoft. It's annoying I guess but I suppose it will help boost WiiU sales from all the Sonic fans out there! :D

 

If I am honest, the news about the new Xbox means I haven't even decided which of the next gen consoles I would even want to get! :D This might push me towards the WiiU a tad more... but being a poor student, I'm not sure...

Alright, time to point out level tropes;

 

I see Ice level, Desert level, Lava Level, and green hill level.

 

It also looks like there might be a sky/cloud level with the smaller clouds near the lava/smoke at the back.

 

The hexagonal patterning is intriguing. I hope this isn't a Sonic and Tails-only adventure again though...

If they let Tails be playable, it'd be alright with me I guess. 

 

Though, Rawrs told me that it's confirmed that all the direct games were summer and spring games. At least by September 21. I'm sure this can't be the case with this game considering how Sonic games usually get out on November and are hyped for at least 5 months ishhh... right?

So was ASRT the final PS3 and 360 Sonic title? Because if thats the case, I'm sad that 2013 offers up nothing in terms of new Sonic games for those systems. Generations would be the final 360/PS3 Sonic game. :(

 

Which means no major SEGA boxed game should be expected for those consoles moving forward?

 

---

 

Don't get me wrong, glad to see a new Sonic game announced. But being a Wii U exclusive, and the fact that the 360 and PS3 are winding down, makes me realize that this could be the end of boxed SEGA games on current gen consoles.

I didn't think about it much before, but others are right in that a focused effort from SEGA on one system and their assistance in developing could drastically improve the games' quality.

 

Buut I still think that's a bit of a conclusion to jump to, I really don't think Iwata necessarily confirmed a long-term exclusitivity. Why is everyone assuming that Sonic won't be on other systems for a long time?
