Sonic and Eggman Team Up; Multiplayer Confirmed and More
Sega today made good on their promise to reveal Sonic Lost World through their official channels. While many felt yesterday’s IGN preview said all that could be said at this early stage, there were still nuggets of new information to be had.
Plot-wise, the major news to come out of Sega’s post is word that Sonic and Eggman will team up to face the so-called Deadly Six this time around:
Dr. Eggman has harnessed the power of six menacing creatures collectively known as the Deadly Six, but when the Deadly Six rise up against their master, Sonic has to unite with his arch nemesis in order to take on the new enemies head-on. Using his dynamic new parkour moves and improved Color Powers, Sonic must run, jump and race through a variety of ever-changing terrains in order to defeat the Deadly Six.
The post also confirms “a range of competitive multiplayer modes,” Wisp powers returning to Wii U with motion controls, and 3DS exclusive wisp powers and special stages with full 3D levels.
We will see Sonic Lost World at E3, and we hope to see the game in action there, and then bring it to you. In the meantime, we’re not quite done our coverage of the Sonic Lost World reveal. Louis Balzani will bring you community reaction soon, and Ryan Bloom will offer his perspective on what’s to come shortly.
