Jason Clement posted a article in NintendoThe 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. Are you interested in this new Sonic Boom title?
Jonathan Higgins posted a article in NintendoThis week“s Nintendo Download is pretty meaty, even though I“m a little disappointed North America doesn't get Golden Sun: The Lost Age this week. First off: Both Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal are highlighted. The former is for Nintendo Wii U, the latter is for Nintendo 3DS. Speaking of a game coming to both eShops, I“ll mention LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is now available as well. The Wii U eShop gets too indie gems in the form of Tengami and A World of Keflings. The eShop on Nintendo 3DS gets Tetris Ultimate and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze. This week“s Virtual Console releases are Mario Kart: Super Circuit on Wii U, and PokÃ©mon Trading Card Game on 3DS. Don“t forget, the latter will net you a code for the PokÃ©mon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version. And last but not least, Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien is on sale for more than 60% off (from $14.99 down to $4.99) from November 14th through 24th. For more information on these and other games released this week on Nintendo platforms, be sure to check out the official Press Release here. I“m surprised they didn“t mention it, but the fist DLC Pack for Mario Kart 8 also came out today. Fun times! Are you looking forward to anything that came out this week? Be sure to let us know!
Last year, SEGA released two of its three exclusive Sonic games for Wii U, and now they're finally revealed the third game in the form of a new title called Sonic Boom at a press conference today. Sonic Boom is actually an entirely new branch of the Sonic franchise that will coincide with a new CG animated TV show, new video games for Wii U and 3DS, and a new toy line. Because of this, you'll notice that Sonic and friends sport a new look and design; SEGA mentions that these new designs are "inspired by the abilities and unique personalities of the characters while still retaining the core identity and values of the Sonic brand." Both the TV show and video games are said to share a common narrative and stylistic similarities. The Sonic Boom video game will actually serve as a prequel to the show and is being developed by Big Red Button Entertainment (Wii U version) and Sanzaru Games (3DS version) in collaboration with Sonic Team. Along with traditional elements like speed, the games will feature exploration, combat, and a new Enerbeam tether mechanic which is said to allow characters to experience the world in a whole new way. As for the character's new designs, they don't look wildly different from the traditional designs save for their proportions, except for Knuckles, who looks to have been beefed up quite a bit and given more overall height. There's no set release date for the game just yet, though the TV show is set for the 2014/2015 season, so it's possible we may hear more at E3 later this year. In the meantime, you can check out the game's trailer below. http://youtu.be/U0a7-1wdDuw Source: SEGA Blog What do you think of the new designs in Sonic Boom?
