Just when I thought that the news for Sonic Lost World was over, more and more keeps coming and I’m just excited to learn more! Yes! GIVE ME MORE POWER! Anyways time to provide information and this the following information comes from Sonic Stadium:
“Right on schedule, the SEGA Blog has updated with more details concerning Sonic Lost World, and more on its new baddies.
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.
As confirmed by Hiroyuki Miyazaki, SEGA of America’s Chief Content Officer, Sonic Lost World‘s story tells of adversaries Sonic and Eggman indeed joining forces to defeat the new threat!

Along with the confirmation of Wisps, full 3D terrain for the handheld version, and 2 player support mode amongst others via IGN, the Blog also tells a bit more about what to expect come later this year.
- Multiplayer modes are highlighted for both versions of the game
- Like Sonic Colours, some Colour powers are unique to Wii U, and others to the 3DS
- Wii U exclusive Colour powers controlled through the GamePad by tilting, touching, aiming, and more
- Can be played solely via the Wii U GamePad
- 3DS version to feature Special Stages”
As for the new details on the game I am getting more interested by the day. Hearing that Sonic and Eggman are gonna have to team is both hilarious and nostalgic, not since Sonic Adventure 2 has Sonic and Dr. Eggman had to team up to take out a threat greater than themselves (at least that’s how it works in my mind). The Deadly Six must be some beast of a threat. Outside of the story elements we’ve also learned of some game features including the fact that multiplayer is in both games which is something I welcome. I also like that the Wisps are gonna be back as well as having different Wisps exclusive to specific versions of the game. And as long as the Wii U Gamepad doesn’t make things too gimmicky then things will turn out just fine for this game.
