In Sonic Lost World, You Can Turn Into An Eagle Or A Musical Note

By Sunjun . August 30, 2013 . 11:00am

As previously revealed, Sonic will be able to run across walls and lock on multiple enemies with his homing attack. Sonic Team is also bringing back the Wisps from Sonic Colors to give Sonic special powers. Here, you can see some of the Color Powers coming to the Wii U version of the game, including the new Crimson and Magenta Wisps.


Crimson Eagle

As its name implies, the Crimson Wisp lets you transform into an eagle and fly around using the Wii U GamePad’s gyroscope function.

Magenta Rhythm

The Magenta Wisp activates a rhythm-action game in which you must tap music notes on the Game Pad. With each tap, you will jump to that music note, potentially leading you to a hidden area.

Orange Rocket

The Orange Wisp is making a return from Sonic Colors to let you transform into a rocket and burst into the sky. Using the Game Pad, you can view your surroundings to find shortcuts or hidden items.

    Interesting use of game pad.

    But man, did the eagle have to have three eyes? It’s kinda creepin’ me out.

  • TheExile285

    Guess I’m gonna have to wait till launch to see what the 3DS game is like :/

    EDIT: These seem like cool game mechanics though.

    I think its Yellow Drill not Orange Drill.

  • Highasthesky

    That’s a eagle?

    Ugh, Rocket is so lame

  • ShadowDivz

    It would make more sense to me if he had a costume, like mario, instead of actually becoming those things. It’s kinda weird seeing sonic transform like that.
    That or it changes his shoes.

    Finally, another game besides party games (NintendoLand, WarioWare, etc.) acknowledges the unique features of the Wii U controller!

  • ImminentBread

    That looks like an item balloon from Sonic Adventure 2 in the Rocket wisp screenshots. Interesting.
