Early Details Arrive for Sonic Lost World

After recently releasing the trailer for the upcoming Wii U and 3DS exclusive title Sonic Lost World, SEGA has gone ahead and revealed some initial details about the game’s story and features.

Naturally, the title features Dr. Eggman up to his old tricks—but this time, he has harnessed power from the Deadly Six. That is, six dastardly creatures! And as things usually go when working with animals—uh, creatures—nothing goes according to plan, and they turn on Dr. Eggman, overthrowing him and making their own kind of trouble.

That means… Sonic needs to ally with *gasp* the Doctor! Together, they need to defeat the Deadly Six. Thankfully, Sonic has plenty of new moves (parkour!) and Color Powers, which return from the previous Sonic Colors releases on Wii and DS.

Players will be able to choose from single player adventure or multiplayer competitive modes, with the Wii U version giving players a chance to control Sonic’s color powers through manipulation of the GamePad. Or, it can be played directly on the GamePad with the addition of a two-person “support mode.”

If you’d rather play on 3DS, the features include specific Color Powers that won’t be available in the Wii U version, as well as exclusive Special Stages.

Here’s a little snippet from the press release by Chief CCO of SEGA of America:

“We are proud of the strong relationship between Nintendo and SEGA and look forward to continuing success with Sonic Lost World on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

The game marks an evolution of the Sonic series and fans – both old and new – will be excited by a story which sees two of video games biggest adversaries, Sonic and Dr. Eggman, joining forces for the first time to help defeat a new deadly threat.”

And in case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the trailer!
