Today, Sega has revealed more of the new Wii U/3DS title Sonic: Lost World.
A new trailer for Sonic: Lost World has surfaced. It’s about a minute and a half long, and actually gives the viewer much to chew on. The new characters that were previously silhouetted in the teaser have been shown, and they are no friend of Sonic for sure; they’re seen attacking him relentlessly as he quickly dashes away from them. What is arguably the most exciting part of this trailer is the gameplay itself, and it looks amazing. It’s hard to explain, but basically most would say this title looks like “Sonic The Hedgehog Galaxy”; the platforming appears to be on landmasses that are suspended high above the air, with Sonic sticking to them even as they twist and wind in all sorts of directions.
There is one other comparison that one can make though, and that would be to Sega’s canceled Sonic game for the Saturn, Sonic X-treme. As you watch, Sonic seems to be winding around cylindrical areas quite like he did in Sonic X-treme, and on top of that you seem to have a fish eye view of it all. The way the levels are shaped and how they play is so identical to Sonic X-treme, it’s uncanny. If anything, you could say it’s the long awaited rebirth of the canceled title that fans anticipated so many years ago. Either way, it looks to be an amazing game just by the looks of the trailer alone.
