Sonic Lost World Can Share “Gadgets” Between Wii U And 3DS Versions

Sega have shared a few new details on Sonic Lost World via a webpage for the game discovered by the Nintendo Everything website.


As previously reported, Sonic Lost World will feature 3D stages both on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, and both versions of the game will have their unique features. On the Wii U, you’ll be able to control Sonic’s new Colour Powers using the Wii U GamePad, but you’ll also have access to “gadgets”.


During the game, a second player will be able to use a separate controller to pilot radio-controlled flying gadgets that can be used to destroy obstacles and help Sonic. Meanwhile, on the Nintendo 3DS version, you’ll be able to create and customize radio-controlled gadgets to help Sonic. Gadgets can be shared between the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game.


As far as multiplayer goes, Sega say that both versions of the game will allow you to race against your friends. On the Wii U, you’ll be able to do this with one player playing on the Wii U GamePad, while another plays on the TV. On the Nintendo 3DS, you’ll be able to race against friends both via local and online game modes.


The Wii U version will also have Miiverse integration. Sega say you’ll be able to share and “charge up” items by sharing them with other players on Miiverse. Meanwhile, the 3DS version will have exclusive Special Stages that you’ll play using the tilt-controls of the 3DS. During these stages you’ll be collecting Chaos Emeralds.


Sega also mention that Sonic will have new and old moves during the game. The wall run and ability to skydive between islands are part of his new abilities, but older ones such as the spin dash will be making a return as well.


Sonic Lost World is slated for release on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS this year.

    Why do the gadgets remind me of the 2nd player from Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2? Though that’s not exactly a bad thing, especially since we’re getting a game that allows cross compatibility between the 3DS & Wii U.

  • Gyro Zeppeli

    Glad to see they’re putting some effort into the handheld version this time around instead of just handing it over to Dimps.

    • Your avatar is hilarious! :D

    ”The Wii U version will also have Miiverse integration.” And 3DS version not. Well isn’t that a confirmation that Miiverse isn’t coming for the 3DS this year?

    • Odin

      I’m pretty sure they never stated how exactly Miiverse would be integrated into the 3DS yet, so if anything, I wouldn’t get your hopes up. If it had been there from the beginning, I’m sure it would have been put into every game from the start, but as it stands, I wouldn’t try and give Miiverse on the handheld anything more credible than a basic messaging system at that.

    Cool, I like how they make both versions worth getting! I can’t wait to get my hands on the 3ds version! ^_^

    “spin dash”

    Yes, yes, and more yes.

  • I’m excited to see more on this game. Mainly the 3ds version.
