    Sega promises new gameplay, enemies and potentially "friends" in Sonic Lost World



    Since its announcement in the last Nintendo Direct, little has been said since about Sonic Lost World, which is one third of an exclusive worldwide deal for the mascot between SEGA and Nintendo. It's a new main series Sonic title coming to Wii U and 3DS, which may be enough for some long term fans for the time being.

    While not exactly heavy with details, John Cheng President and Chief Financial Officer of Sega of America Inc has been quoted by the Associated Press to confirm that the title isn't any form of retread of existing games, but that it's being produced to feature new ideas for the franchise.

    With 'Sonic Lost World,' we're going to introduce new gameplay and enemies, which is always fun. In terms of Sonic and his friends, he'll have his same friends there, and I think there'll be some new ones as well. It's not a reiteration. It's going to be all new.
    Sonic has a lot of friends thanks to SEGA enthusiasm in recent times for expanding the blue one's roster, but this does potentially shatter hopes from the concept art that this would focus on Sonic and Tails. To take an optimist's approach, perhaps SEGA will strike the right balance.

    Cheng also stated, briefly, his belief that Sonic can be a powerful exclusive for Nintendo's systems, while repeating a phrase that's often heard in the games industry.

    It should be a win-win situation. Don't count Nintendo out.
    How many of Sonic's friends would you like to appear this time? We'd be happy to kick it old-school with Tails and perhaps Knuckles, but we may see some other companions in the Lost World.

    Pretty ironic how Sonic is now exclusive to Nintendo.

    Anywho, SEGA doesn't have the greatest track record for adding new gameplay elements to Sonic games. That concept art does look intriguing though. This game might be inspired by Super Mario Galaxy perhaps?

    How sad really, the only company willing to make games for Nintendo. Is a company suffering themselves

    Sega isn't the only company making games for Nintendo.

    Not really sad as both companies put themselves in this position. With that said I am still not interested in the Wii U and this game is irrelevant.

    That game would belong on PS as it would sell better and played better with the DS4.

    What does that make your post?

    That's not what she was asking but thanks for pimping the PS4 and its controller in a thread that has nothing to do with either.

    To answer her question though, last I heard, Yu Suzuki was considering Kickstarter to help fund the project but we don't even know if Sega still owns the license.

    Sonic should stay as it should. Standalone without the whole "Friends" BS. I had a lot of fun with Generations and Unleashed so hopefully they'll continue that right path.

    I agree, Sonic got **** when they started adding all these random characters like the bunny and whatnot. Should just be Sonic, Tails and Knuckles.

    I haven't played a Sonic game since the Genesis days lol. I'll keep an eye on it and see if I like what I see.

    You haven't missed much really, I hated pretty all the 3D Sonic titles, the series for me is Sonic 1, 2, 3 & Knuckles and then it ended.

    I did.

    Sonic 4 is solid too, but not quite as good as the original games.

    I always assumed the series went downhill with Sonic '06 and racing titles like Sonic Riders (though Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed was pretty good).

    I actually liked the Sonic sections in Sonic 06. It was everything else that sucked.
