Aging blue hero Sonic the Hedgehog is all set to come back in a brand new adventure on Nintendo Wii and DS. It's called Sonic Colors. Here's the official press release, as well as a teaser video:
An extraordinary amusement park has been seen orbiting around the home planet of Sonic the Hedgehog and rumors are spreading that an alien race of Wisps, who have a unique colorful energy, are being held captive there by the evil Doctor Eggman. Soon after arriving at the amusement park, Sonic discovers he is able to use these mysterious alien forces to help the Wisps escape! Sonic Colors for the Wii seamlessly combines both 3D and classic 2D gameplay perspectives.
"In Sonic Colors, players run at supersonic speed through incredible looking planets, each with their own unique visual style. In addition to the classic Sonic gameplay style, the colorful new Wisp power-ups offer a fresh new way of exploring these worlds and help make Sonic faster than ever before!" - Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Sega.
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 and 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.
