Sonic returns with style in Sonic: Lost World for Wii U and 3DS
As I already said, Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS will be the two consoles able to properly host the latest game of the Sonic franchise. Moreover, Sonic: Lost World has cross platform capabilities and features, a good piece of news for the fans who own both, a Nintendo 3DS and a Nintendo Wii U console.
After a quick look at this game and its gameplay, we found out that Sonic: Lost World is able to offer diversity to its players. The levels are not similar to each other and each of them is different. Thus, you will even need to engage in different gameplay styles in order to be able to finish different levels from the game. Some of them are focused on lower speeds and platform gaming features and styles while other focus on speed. For example, in the Desert Ruins 1 level you need to gather as more cakes, doughnuts and cookies as you can in order to end it well. On the other hand, in the Desert Ruins 2 level, the theme and the gameplay are quite different, as it is based in the tunnel racing concept like the previous games in the Sonic series.
Sonic is the only playable character available in Lost World. His friends however, Tails, Knuckles and Amy, will also be featured and included in the story as companions of the main hero. Throughout the game, Sonic has to save animals and collect Red Star rings which will help unlock new content. On the other hand, Gold Cannons will give you access to hidden areas, filled with in-game goodies.
This time, the game will let you create radio-controlled gadgets that can be customized on the 3DS, and just a moment later, sent to the Wii U where they can be used in a co-op multi player game. Moreover, we will not be missing the Sonic’s incredible speed that we have grown accustomed with in the past games of the series. And, even though the game would seem to be rather similar to Super Mario Galaxy Elite, we ensure you all that it is in fact full of unique gameplay elements.
Finally, Sonic: Lost World features a great series of abstract levels which combine the 2D elements with 3D mechanics. We’ll be able to escalate suspended buildings through the new parkour system available in the game, a mode that will allow Sonic to easily adapt to the obstacles he finds during his runs.
