Sonic Lost World Announced

Recommended Posts

Awesome speedrun of Windy Hill 3DS. The spin dash works like in the Wii U (keeps going after a jump), slightly improved Sonic model, and the speed shoe theme is now the Super Sonic theme from Colors!

 

EDIT: It's actually a Reach for the Stars instrumental.

 

Excellent! Reach For the Stars is my favorite Sonic theme yet!biggrin.png

So, based on the HUD in the Wii U time attack mode video:

  1. There's no time limit (of course, it'd be really redundant since this is the mode where you've gotta go fast). Guess that means you can use this mode to wander around levels for as long as you want, hilariously enough. tongue.png
  2. Nothing in the HUD for collecting animals, so I assume you can't rescue them when doing a speedrun? I wonder if no animals pop out of badniks in this mode or if they just don't count.
  3. No Red Rings, either.
  4. No lives count in this mode, now that I think about it, but it's probably for the best. On a related note, I assume if you die you go to the last checkpoint and the time goes back to what it was when you went through it, but we have no way of knowing just yet.

I'd blame it more on the guy not doing anything but running, really. I'm sure you could go faster than that.

 

It's not about the running. He outright didn't explore the levels platforming parts...but it was a "speedrun" after all.

'Carry across your demo save to the full game'?

We can really do that with the WiiU version?

That totally means skipping out on the first level and first two cutscenes. Who'd want to do that?

Someone who played the demo to death and already watched those two cutscenes?

Considering you can save your time from your speedrun, as far as I'm seeing, it'd mean you won't have to redo it and you would hold a relatively high spot on the leaderboards(?) from the get-go of the game releasing. That's a pretty big thing with a competitive speedrunning series like Sonic.

 

It'd also just be two cutscenes you've already seen, so what's the point in seeing them again when you want to get on with the game?

...welp.

 

Cindy Robinson, you have disappointed me again.

 

I seriously had faith this time. I thought she was gonna be at least 06!Ortiz level; maybe even Douillard, but no. Is it just me, or does she actually sound like a mix of Minnie Mouse and a 60-year-old woman now!?

Someone uploaded a video of the demo with english settings. So here's the cutscene of Knux and Amy with their english voices!

Also, I'm pretty sure that's a new trailer near the end there.

And it begins.

 

While I'm still a bit on the fence with Amy's voice, there is definitely much more character to be found in these two cut-scenes than I found present in Generations' entirety! With how Lost World is shaping up, just imagine the stories we could have gotten if the writers had truly gotten this much freedom pertaining to Colors and Generations!

 

Now if they can just find a way to keep Knux and Amy involved, active and get them pulled into the action and not glued to the cheer-leading box. Endless possibilities there are!

And this is one of the reasons why I prefer to play Sonic games with the Japanese voices enabled. Everyone else actually sounds okay, though. Too bad the 3DS version (which is what I'm getting since I'm too poor to buy a Wii U) probably won't have the option to change the voices.

I love Travis (better than Dan Green IMO), but omg Cindy why haven't you improved yet? >< By now her voice should be so much better. The Minnie Mouse voice is ridiculous! Even Lisa Ortiz was better than her! T~T

Anyway, forgot to comment on the cutscene when it was first revealed. I think it's great! So much character, and so much KnuxAmy goodness there. XP Also, I thought the part where Knux is carried off by animals was really cute and it does not make him look stupid at all.

There's nothing wrong with Cindy's acting. She's not bad, she's just different. Also, you expected Ortiz level? Lisa Ortiz is a terrible actress just like every 4kids actor thats not Mike Pollock. Cindy at least actually...you know....acts.

 

Although i still think they should have just cast Laura Bailley as Amy instead of Omochao. She would make a great Amy.

Gyuh, Amy's voice is still ear-bleedingly horrible. Even the 4Kids Amy was better than this one.

 

That trailer at the end was pretty coo, though. Why didn't the rest of the trailers make use of the main theme like this one does? It's better than Cinema, at least.

It's not here acting per say, it's her voice... it doesn't fit Amy at all, imo. They really should've got someone who sounds younger and more teenage-like, since Amy is supposed to be 12 years old. She also sounds almost exactly like Minnie Mouse, which is awkward for me.

That 3DS speed run was much more exciting than the WiiU one.

Really? I think Ortiz played amy perfectly in the games and in sonic x she wasn't half bad either.

Cindy Robinson's take on Amy does remind me of the Roger Craig Smith interview where he explained that SEGA wanted him to make Sonic sound and be older. Perhaps SEGA opts to do the same with Amy. Heaven knows it's about time for them to actually take age and time continuum of the characters into account! Come to think of it, considering the acknowledgment Sonic's birthday in-story for Generations, Tails' slight voice change (maybe it's just me but he sounds a bit older;could just be a coincidence) and different character models, they could actually be going for just that!

 

Ahh, the wonders of time not being fundamentally broken in the Sonic games universe!laugh.png
