UPDATE: Sonic Lost World Deadly Six Bonus Edition officially revealed for Wii U

Thanks to the SEGA Blog, we now have more details on the previously revealed NiGHTS into Dreams inspired Wii U Sonic Lost World DLC. As described by SEGA, “Sonic has been sucked into a world of nightmares created by Wizeman, and must defeat the Deadly Six, who are riding on gigantic Nightmaren monsters inspired from the game NiGHTS into Dreams….” The content includes an exclusive level that is accessed via a download code which is obtained when pre-ordering the game (or while supplies last). SEGA says the DLC will be instantly playable, and that upon completing the level a special Color Power (usually only obtainable from Miiverse) is rewarded. SEGA also notes that the Deadly Six Bonus Edition will be called the Deadly Six Edition in Europe. Given that SEGA did not link to any specific retailer, it is being assumed that like Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, this bonus edition will be available to all who pre-order and purchase within the release window. Later pressings of the game will likely drop the content.

After the break, check out the special cover art as well as a few new screens.

    Who wants to bet the color power turns Sonic into NiGHTS?

    this looks freaking incredible

    A return from Christmas nights! Sweet!

  4. SkyBlue says:

    Looking at this, I am guessing that NiGHTS is pretty big vs Sonic?

    • TimmiT says:

      That or Sonic Team is just really fond of NiGHTS and wanted to do this as a nice extra. This isn’t the first time they put a NiGHTS reference in a Sonic game. (though this is certainly the biggest)

    • George and I speculated that Iizuka was drunk and forced Sonic Team to stop development of Lost World to develop NiGHTS 3, then SEGA higher ups came in and stopped him. The material they developed was worked into the bonus content.

    • Radrappy says:

      he must have been drunk for months straight

  5. RT says:

    Even if Sega won’t let Iizuka make another NiGHTS game, at least we know he still very much loves the franchise. Who knows… Maybe if we’re really lucky, Sega will break down and give NiGHTS one more shot in this new console generation.
