  • The game will feature both 2D/3D sections. (both on Wii U and 3DS versions)
  • Sonic will be slowed down, moving the joystick in one direction will make him walk. Holding one trigger will make him run and both triggers will make him run at full speed as spindash and feature ‘figure 8 sprint’ Sonic.
  • Boost will not be in the game, replaced with spindash and Sonic’s figure 8 sprint.
  • Colored powers will return along with Wisps from Sonic Colors.
  • Sonic the Hedgehog is the only playable character.

  • Game will feature badniks with animals inside that need to be saved, just like the classic games.
  • Every animal you save in a stage will be added up for a total, which will unlock content when you add them up.
  • Red rings make their return again, if you catch them you unlock more content.

    This sounds awesome! But for canons sake, why are the wisps there?

    • Samurai-Don says:

      Because the Wisp are awesome, though if it anything like Colour you won’t be forced to use them should you not want to.

    The game looks EXTREMELY similar to Sonic X-Treme 😛

    I wanted more characters playable. Very disappointed now.

  4. Why does Sonic need multiple speeds?

    • radrappy says:

      because its absolutely ridiculous how he goes from 0 to 300 mph at the flick of the joystick in Generations. Hopefully this allows for better control.

    Slightly wrong, you could save animals in Adventure 2 for the Chao Garden!

    Alright folks. enough with the picky sentimental nonsense about the wisps and lack of other playable characters. First of all, this isn’t a complete return to “the roots” game. It’s a completely new direction for sonic aiming for smoother controls, and more enjoyable gameplay. Plus, lots of people (myself included) actually liked the wisps. As a big nintendo fan, I’m glad they have their hand in this game. This has the potential to be the best Sonic game since Sonic & Knuckles.
