Nintendo and Sega have released the first details of Sonic Lost World for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Here’s the game’s story summary:

 

Dr. Eggman has harnessed the power of six menacing creatures known as the Deadly Six, but when the Deadly Six rise up against their master, Sonic has to unite with his arch nemesis in order to take on the new enemies head-to-head.  Using his dynamic new parkour moves and improved Colour Powers, Sonic must run, jump and race through a variety of ever changing terrains in order to defeat the Deadly Six.

 

Sonic Lost World will have both single-player as well as competitive multiplayer modes on both the Wii U and 3DS. Additionally, both platforms will have their own specific features in the game as well.

 

On the Wii U, Colour Powers can be controlled using the Wii U GamePad, by touching, tilting and aiming. The Wii U version of the game will also support off-TV play and a 2-player “support mode”.

 

Meanwhile, the Nintendo 3DS version of the game will be the first Sonic game to feature “fully realized” 3D stages, including Special Stages and Colour Powers unique to them.

 

Sonic Lost World will be available later this year. Find screenshots below.
