Sonic Labyrinth Is Japan’s Next Game Gear Title On 3DS Virtual Console

By Ishaan . May 14, 2012 . 11:30am

Japan’s 3DS Virtual Console gets another Game Gear title this week—Sonic Labyrinth, a puzzle platformer. Like Sonic 3D Blast, this game is played from an isometric view. Dr. Robotnik has stolen Sonic’s shoes, so there’s no running around at super speed in Labyrinth. Instead, you solve puzzles and collect keys to complete each stage.

 

Each stage in Sonic Labyrinth is also timed. There are four Zones in the game, with three Acts each. It’ll go up on the Nintendo eShop on May 16th for 300 yen.

    Really? Sonic Labyrinth? The only gamegear sonic game I can’t stand. Sonic without speed is like playing a rayman game, only taking away his hands, legs and head :P. Oh well, cheers to those who like it I guess

    Someone
    Somewhere
    In some other time
    Thought this game would be worth other people’s money
    And made it

    They should re-release Sonic Adventure 2 for XBL/PSN while they are re-releasing all these Sonic games.

  • Michael Cadogan

    Before you know it they’ll decide to have Sonic driving a car racing other Sonic characters. Now that would be a stupid idea.

    Sonic Drift? AMAZING FUCKING IDEA.

      I never got the complaints, really.  The only game where (almost) everyone hoofed it was Sonic R, and Sonic or Super Sonic would basically dominate every race on that thing.  I think the vehicles in Riders, Drift, and the All-Stars Racing games are kinda more to level the playing field than to belittle Sonic’s running speed.

      As for Drift specifically, it was trying to be a handheld MarioKart.  It’s not amazing, no, but all things considered?  Not bad.
