Yoshi’s Island Zone Coming To Sonic Lost World, Legend of Zelda Zone Hinted

By Ishaan . December 18, 2013 . 6:20am

Sonic Lost World for the Wii U is getting a brand new zone, available today as free DLC—a Yoshi’s Island Zone. It will be available later today on the Nintendo eShop in North America and Europe.



A second DLC zone will be made available as well, and this one, too, will be based on a Nintendo franchise. Just what franchise this is has not been announced yet, but Nintendo president Satoru Iwata hinted that fans will be able to “Link” to the Nintendo eShop to download this second piece of DLC.

    The hint was too obvious :P
    That aside, it cements this game’s position as a Nintendo exclusive.
    I never thought such collaborations would be possible one day, it’s like a cold day in hell.

  • John Diamond

    yah definitely getting a wii-u now

  • Arcana Wiz

  • Michael Cortorreal

    • Kaetsu

      Dat voice acting.

      • RichyGaming

        I’m the new voice actor for Sonic.

  • Among the “Link” comment, there was a freaking Tri-Force in the artwork they showed afterwards. That was more of an obvious hint, since you didn’t even have to look…it was just right there in your face.

  • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

    I will not be socked if Sega just out right sales Nintendo the character next year.

  • Next DLC: Dress Fat Sonic up in a plumber outfit, and give him a mustache too. Might as well, at this point… =P
    Edit: LET’S-A GO FAST!

  • TruSpindash

    Just Finished playing Lost World yesterday, looks like I’ll be returning to it way sooner than I thought.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    …..This is indeed Sonic in LOST WORLD lol. Can’t wait for many upcoming new Zone there.^_^

    Zelda new Zone and Pokemon would be very nice.^_^

  • Stage DLC…free…what…what is this madness?

    • PreyMantis

      They’ve also been doing this with Pikmin 3. It’s real madness! Why can’t they add prices to these like others!?

  • grevlinghore

    I was NOT expecting that! Way past cool!

  • William Carpenter

    WEIRD. But… heck, why not?

  • sweet i like this game and that stage looks real fuzzy and fun to play in

    I think Sonic became a second-party for Nintendo by now.

    Something I thought when when I was seeing this was: What happened with Yoshi Yarn?

    • grevlinghore

      Same. I´d assume that it´s still in development. I also think this was meant as a subtle reminder of that game, as the textures here are all fabric ;)

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Just once I would like to see a Sonic/Mario platformer but this is nice too

  • CirnoLakes

    I’m a lot more interested in a Sonic the Hedgehog game, now. This is oddly effective fanservice. I didn’t know I always wanted this so badly.

    It doesn’t hurt that I’m a Nintendo person.

  • Frimelda

    Downloaded it and I have to say I am slightly disappointed….not because it’s bad, but it’s just too damn short!

    How are those Piranha Plants attacked also?

    • grevlinghore

      Ikr? Just kick some shy guys into them – that´ll do the trick!

      • Frimelda

        It works on the early ones, but not the ones on a raised platform. ;____;
