Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice Announced For Nintendo 3DS [Update]


Sega are bringing another Sonic Boom game to Nintendo 3DS this Winter. It’s titled Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, and just got announced by Nintendo of Europe.



Update: Nintendo of America have shared a trailer for the game. Sega have also put out a press release, highlighting a couple of the game’s features:


To create an entirely new experience, Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice will infuse fire and ice elements throughout gameplay, enabling new abilities to play out in special character moves and interactions with environments. The new title also delivers gameplay that enables players to run through the game at top speed, or take their time with deeper exploration and puzzle play.  

New to the title is the introduction of Bot Racing, a supplemental game tied to the single player story with multiplayer gameplay. The new Bot Racing feature is an extension of Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice that is purely about racing and speed, where a user will unlock character themed Bots to challenge friends on fast courses or tracks.
