PostSubject: Official Sonic Colours Thread    Wed May 26, 2010 7:26 pm

Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ys4PRXf0TYs&feature=player_embedded
Blog: http://blogs.sega.com/usa/2010/05/26/introducing-sonic-colors/

Press Release: LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (May 26th, 2010) – SEGA® Europe Ltd. & SEGA® America, Inc., today announced Sonic Colours™, a brand new high speed action adventure in which Sonic the Hedgehog races through incredible theme park inspired worlds to rescue a colourful alien race from the clutches of Dr Eggman. Sonic Colours will be available on the home video game system Wii™ and the Nintendo DS™ system late in 2010.
An extraordinary amusement park has been seen orbiting around the home planet of Sonic the Hedgehog, and rumours are spreading that an alien race of Wisps, who have a unique colourful energy, are being held captive there by the evil Dr 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 Colours for the Wii seamlessly combines both 3D and classic 2D game play perspectives, whilst the Nintendo DS version takes full advantage of the console’s dual screen.
“The vibrant alien world of Sonic Colours enables players to race at top speed through incredible looking planets, each with their own unique visual style.” commented Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing, SEGA. “In addition to the classic Sonic game play style, the colourful new Wisp power ups offer a fresh new way of exploring these worlds and helps make Sonic faster than ever before!”
Sonic Colours sees Sonic accelerating to adrenaline-pumping super speeds and blasting through obstacles in ways never before seen in a Sonic game. The alien Wisps in Sonic Colours each have a unique “Colour Power” that, once freed, Sonic is able to absorb whilst 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.
Sonic Colours will be available on the home video game system Wii™ and the Nintendo DS™ system late in 2010.



OMG this is awesome news! I did not expect this at all, it looks awesome! *Fangasms*

What do you guys think? Were you expecting this at all?

I myself am not expecting anything particularly special or ground-breaking. Guess I'll just have to wait a little more.

Am I the only one who's actually excited about this? Everyone seems to be being rather negative... :?

I never said I was negative. I'm just saying I'm not anticipating a revolutionary game concept. From what I can tell, the Wii version sounds like Sonic Unleashed minus the Werehog... sign me up.

I'm excited. Any new Sonic game is a reason to go "woo"...or something of that nature. ^^;
I just hope I can afford it, then.

But...The ability to absorb creatures powers...where have I heard that before..?

So many people are complaining about it already. They're saying things like; it's childish, and it's too much like Mario Galaxy and Pokemon (WTF?).

These people seriously call themselves Sonic fans? Why must they complain about everything, it's only just been announced.
There doesn't seem to be anyone on here like that though, which is good.

How could it possibly be like Pokémon..?
From what I've heard, Sonic tries to save multi-coloured aliens for an amusement park of Eggman's creation, and to which, gain abilities from them... I don't see how that's like Pokémon.

Must people complain wherever a new Sonic game is released..? Those who do, aren't real fans, as they aren't giving Sonic games a chance to be played. They seem to be more troll-esque...
First they complain the Sonic series has lost its roots, so SEGA actually releases Sonic 4 (soon), and then they complain about minor details like eye colour, and Ivo being referred to as "Eggman", which he always was in the Japanese version.
Now they're once again accusing Sonic of being a sell-out, when the very first announcement of Sonic colours has been release... I respect people's opinions, don't get me wrong, I just don't see how someone that call them self a "Sonic fan", when they could be so negative about a Sonic game they barely know about...
Sorry for the rant, guys... I hope I didn't damage the thread...

This actually surprises me. Looks like another Wii and DS game to look forward to. I hope to see more, though it wouldn't surprise me if some people don't like the idea of it.

This doesn't really surprise me, no matter what there's always complaints I think. I remember someone once saying on Sega's forums a long time ago that Sonic's fanbase was "unpleasable". I doubt it's true for everyone, since I've enjoyed every Sonic game I played, not counting ones I haven't played yet.

To be honest, after 24 seconds of a very short trailer, I really can't judge the game yet. It seems unique, as it'd be pretty neat having the Wisp's change your colour and give you different abilities. I'm hoping for the levels to be like Unleashed's Day Time levels.

Also, the music is awesome. ^^

Also the Wii version to be developed by Sonic Team only and the DS version is to be developed by Sonic Team and Dimps.

Apparantly it's aimed at a younger audience: http://www.tssznews.com/2010/05/27/exclusive-sonic-colors-developed-by-storybook-division-meant-for-young-crowd/

I would treat this a a rumor for now though as TSSZ are known for being wrong.

Tails is definitely in it. It's not confirmed if he's playable or not yet though.

Breath in, exhale, breathe in, exhale....

I'm better now. Is it going to be 2-D or 3-D?

For the Wii version it's going to be a mixture of both 2-D and 3-D. Much like the day stages of Sonic Unleashed.

The DS version will be all 2-D, similar to Sonic Rush.

That's cool, since I liked both styles from those games. Seeing how it's a console and a handheld game, I wonder if it's going to be its own series or part of the main series.

Nintendo Power's Preveiw:

Quote :
The game looks pretty nice, think of it as a prettier looking version of the Wii version of Unleashed, the two zones that were featured were Sweet Mountain zone, and Tropical Reservoir zone, and the former is a mountain of pastries, the said they wanted to include the crazy level designs from the old games, which is fine by me. It also said that in the 3D sections it will focus more on running from A-B akin to the Daytime stages of Unleashed, while the 2D sections will be more for platforming.

The DS version, can easily be called Sonic Rush 3, it looks exactly like those games, even the tension gauge is there, they said it would be similar to the Wii version.

Tails appears in the story but Sonic will be the only playable, they said the story is simple, light, and goofy, which is fine by me. Knuckles, and Shadow may also make an appearance in the game.

If someone has scans, please show them, because seeing it, is better than me explaining it.

Oh and Eggmanland makes a return, Yaaayyyy.

Last time I checked the storybook games didn’t have platforming, and there will be platforming.

Also there’s a level with giant Cheeseburgers.

I’m being serious, its really there, you also bounce off jello.

Looks promising.

Sounds like it's going to be good so far. Giant Cheeseburgers?!? Are we serious, Sonic gets to travel to a world of Cheeseburgers. I can't wait to see that in action. Laughing :D
