This new Sonic entitled ‘Sonic Colours’ is for the Wii and DS. It looks like it is aimed at a younger audience. Not much for me to say about it yet but Sega’s CGI looks fantastic as usual and the world looks colourful and interesting.

Hit the jump for a press release which will fill you in on all the details.

LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (May 26th, 2010) SEGA ® Europe Ltd. & SEGA ® America, Inc. today announced Sonic ™ Colours, the new high-speed adventure of our famous hero Sonic the Hedgehog.

A unique playground has been seen orbiting the planet of Sonic the Hedgehog. Some rumors speak of an alien race called wisps, with a rare colored energy, which is now imprisoned here, by the evil Dr. Eggman. Sonic, once arrived on the planet’s entertainment, you can use immediately made aware of this rare power to help colored wisps in the escape!

  1. I assume the game will be "Sonic Colors" in the US. Looks pretty cool! Like I said in the forums, I appreciate the borrowed elements of caged colored creatures (3D Blast) on a little planet (Sonic CD) turned amusement park (Chaotix).

    This is the most random teaser and the most random game announcement I think I've ever seen.

  4. I don't know, Black Knight and Secret Rings were MUCH more random.

    I did not fully understand the described gameplay, but it seems like some significantly different stuff from the usual "run and boost" thing..

    This is interesting. And I freaking love colors.

    The game is clearly aimed at the younger Sonic fans…Really I can't possible say if I think this will be a good or bad game until I have seen how it plays.

    If its another on rail game like the story book series I'll probably pass on it… Was not digging that at all.

    If it plays somewhat like a normal Sonic game but you can pick up power-ups that let you have special skills like Mario Galaxy then it could turn out to be an alright game.

    I’m consciously optimistic, but I’m expecting a game for children and nothing akin to the sonic of old. Does not mean it can’t be a good game in its own right… But will it be?

    There is nothing saying a game for children cant be a quality game. Lets hope Sega keeps that in mind.

    @Sharky

    Opposed to the Sonic games aimed at older fans like… Shadow the Hedgehog? Sonic Straight-Up Shoots a Guy and Blames it on Eggman 2k4?

    Music seems nice.
