There is free Zelda-themed DLC coming out for Sonic: Lost World. It's out tomorrow on the Wii U eShop, and IGN's got one of their exclusive preview things right here. (The gist: Sonic gets to run around a zone filled with Zelda references.)
A press release for today's surprise Sonic Lost World new Yoshi's Island level for Wii U includes the following tease, reprinted here with the original emphasis: "And get ready to link to another special DLC for Sonic Lost World in 2014. More info to come on that one shortly."
As of today, Sonic can run around in an all-new Yoshi-themed zone available for the Wii U version of Sonic: Lost World. It's almost like Nintendo and Sega were never bitter rivals or something. The DLC is free.
There are two new games called Sonic: Lost World coming this month. I'd like to refer them as "the good one" and "the bad one," if you don't mind.
Sega would like you to know that they do not plan to nickel-and-dime you and start charging for free lives in Sonic games. Nor do they have plans to imbalance their Sonic games by letting you buy free lives.
Dr. Eggman's great and all, but he's just not deadly enough for Sonic: Lost World, so we end up with these guys — the Deadly Six. One of them is a sullen teen. Sounds pretty deadly to me.
It's been clear at least since the Dreamcast era, if not further back, that Sonic the Hedgehog's console games were going to be in 3D. If you wanted old-school 2D Sonic, you went to the handhelds. Well, now the next Sonic game on handhelds is 3D, too.
We've already marveled a little bit about how slick this fall's Nintendo-exclusive Sonic: Lost World is looking. Let's marvel some more. The Wii U version of the new game is looking sharp.
Check out this footage of the upcoming Sonic Lost World, which is headed to the Wii U and the 3DS this October.
I know. Look, I know, alright? I should know better. But I'm an optimist. And Sonic Lost World keeps looking sweet.
It's the first Sonic the Hedgehog game of the current generation of consoles, technically, and it's bringing Sonic up-to-date, Super Mario Galaxy style. Sega may be calling it Sonic Lost World, but to me it'll always be Super Sonic the Hedgehog Galaxy.
This fall's Nintendo-only Sonic game, Sonic Lost World, looks like it'll feature 2D and 3D gameplay, similar to the other recent pretty-good Sonic games. IGN just ran the game's first trailer, which you can see above. The trailer hypes Sonic's new moves.
