New Sonic Game Revealed for Wii and DS

Post  Terra on Wed May 26, 2010 3:49 pm

As many of you will know by now, Sega have been working on Sonic The Hedgehog 4 for downloadable platforms. However, instead of Sonic Team developing, the developers of Street Fighter IV as well as the Sonic Advance and Rush series Dimps has been in charge, leading to speculation about what Sonic Team has been up to. However, earlier today, this was officially revealed as a press release initially coming from Italy has confirmed that they will be developing a new Sonic game for the Wii and DS, called Sonic Colours (Sonic Colors in the US)


Sega released this press-release

LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (May 26th, 2010) – SEGA® Europe Ltd. & SEGA® America, Inc., today announced Sonic Colours™, a brand new high speed action adventure in which Sonic the Hedgehog races through incredible theme park inspired worlds to rescue a colourful alien race from the clutches of Dr Eggman. Sonic Colours will be available on the home video game system Wii™ and the Nintendo DS™ system late in 2010.
An extraordinary amusement park has been seen orbiting around the home planet of Sonic the Hedgehog, and rumours are spreading that an alien race of Wisps, who have a unique colourful energy, are being held captive there by the evil Dr Eggman. Soon after arriving at the amusement park Sonic discovers he is able to use these mysterious alien forces to help the Wisps escape! Sonic Colours for the Wii seamlessly combines both 3D and classic 2D game play perspectives, whilst the Nintendo DS version takes full advantage of the console’s dual screen.
“The vibrant alien world of Sonic Colours enables players to race at top speed through incredible looking planets, each with their own unique visual style.” commented Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing, SEGA. “In addition to the classic Sonic game play style, the colourful new Wisp power ups offer a fresh new way of exploring these worlds and helps make Sonic faster than ever before!”
Sonic Colours sees Sonic accelerating to adrenaline-pumping super speeds and blasting through obstacles in ways never before seen in a Sonic game. The alien Wisps in Sonic Colours each have a unique “Colour Power” that, once freed, Sonic is able to absorb whilst speeding through the various theme park inspired planets. The Wisp energy enables Sonic to create new paths through the stages by drilling through the ground (Yellow Drill) for example, or speeding through the stage as a laser (Cyan Laser). Stringing the Wisp power ups together creates a combo that increases Sonic’s boost gauge even more quickly and exclusive Wisp power ups will be available for both Wii and the Nintendo DS versions, ensuring a unique and super speedy gameplay experience for Sonic fans everywhere

A short teaser trailer was also revealed

Hopefully this will be better than recent Sonic Team projects. Razz

It's now come to my attention that this may not be by Sonic Team. I said that because it showed the Sonic Team logo in the trailer, but apparently Sega did the same for the Rush/Advance series. I wouldn't be surprised if this was the next ST project but just a word of caution
