SOA Release Explains Powers of “Alien Wisps”

Sega of America’s blog has made official what we reported on about an hour ago–Sonic Colors is coming this Holiday for the Nintendo Wii and DS.  There, plotline details have been refined.

According to the entry, Sonic Colors centers around an amusement park built by Eggman, dubbed the Amazing Interstellar Amusement Park.  Held captive there are Alien Wisps, and Sonic can use energy from those wisps to gain special powers:

Sonic Colors sees Sonic accelerating to adrenaline-pumping super speeds and blasting through obstacles in ways never before seen in a Sonic game. The alien Wisps featured in the game each have a unique “Color Power” that, once freed, Sonic is able to absorb while 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. 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.

Artwork of the amusement park billboard, and clean screenshots from the trailer, have been made available by Sega, and they are in the gallery below.  For the moment, no in-game shots are available, but we will pass them along as soon as they are.  We will gauge fan reaction on this surprise announcement later today on TSSZ News.
