The Sonic Boom franchise started last year with one title for Wii U, one for 3DS, and a TV show, and it looks like SEGA is continuing on with the series in the gaming space with a new title for 3DS called Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice. And once again, Sanzaru Games will be taking on development duties for this title.
Featuring the same cast from Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (Sonic, Amy, Tails, Knuckles, and Sticks), this game is said to include more speed, adventure, and exploration as well as a unique focus on harnessing the power of fire and ice to aid each character.
Also included is a new mode called Bot Racing, which will feature multiplayer gameplay and is all about speed. Throughout the course of the game, the player will unlock differently themed Bots that they can use to race in this mode with others.
So why isn't there a Wii U companion game? It's likely because Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric performed well below SEGA's expected sales, and most reviews were largely negative to boot, so perhaps it makes sense for them to focus just on the 3DS for the meantime.
Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice will be available in-stores and on the 3DS eShop during Holiday 2015. You can check out a trailer for the game below.
