Sonic Lost World Wii U footage


Some new gameplay footage of the Wii U and 3DS exclusive Sonic Lost World has appeared online. The video shows some fast paced gameplay, true to the Sonic series, and takes places on levels called Desert Ruins and Silent Forest. The game features both 2D and 3D levels inspired by older Sonic games.

SEGA has confirmed that the Wii U and 3DS versions will feature different level designs and content, i.e. the 3DS version isn’t a port of the Wii U version.

Sonic Lost World will be released on the Wii U and 3DS on October 22. Be sure to check out some Sonic Lost World screenshots, and a trailer as well.

  • CMB

    This game looks promising, can’t wait!

  • Magnus Eriksson

    Hmmm… looks fun. Will probably get this (too).

  • Orto

    Game looks good, like mario galaxy on heroine. Dont like how sega has released that dr egg man is now a good guy for the most part of the game. However you can never beat a good old plot twist

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Your Nintendo fanboy imitation is great. You look almost exactly like one. Only the details that give you away.

      • Orto

        I am a nintendo fan not a fan boy. I just defend my passion for nintendo against fony fan boys that always have sarcastic comments about nintendo

        • Magnus Eriksson

          I think you are funny anyway. :)

          • Eric Degrechie

            And I think you’re a shit-eating pedophile. Fuck off.

    • SonicLucario

      Well this game may as well take its place for now since Nintendo decided to made another 3D Land instead of another Galaxy or Sunshine :/ But hey the game looks great either way so dont nock something till you try it and dont judge a book by its cover, well in this case the game

  • RoboticLink

    This game looks good, but I’m still not looking forward to it as much as the Wind Waker HD

  • RoboticLink

    It’s nice to see SEGA show their faces after Aliens: Colonial Marines, hopefully this will earn them the respect that a few gamers lost

    Edit: I know Gearbox made it but SEGA published it which basically makes them responsible, it’s just like if Smash Bros. U sucked @$$ (which it probably won’t), then people would blame Nintendo instead of HAL Labs, it’s just how the public thinks

    • Ducked

      Why would anyone lose respect for Sega after one crappy game? All most all developers make at least one game that just sucks. They handled it poorly, but who even remembers that?

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Actually I do. I really wanted that game to be great. Love the movies and had waited for this game for a long time…

        • Ducked

          We can’t expect video games based of of movies to be great…

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Weeeeeell… kind of many did this time. And why? It is a game people have been waiting for a loooooooong time. Look it up.

          • Ducked

            People waited a long time, but they still rushed the game in development to get an earlier release.

          • $63955329

            yep I know what you mean. I remembered when sega released sonic 06. it was crap due to it being rushed

        • Andreas Sunde

          I blame Gearbox, not Sega. They alledgedly took money from Sega meant for Aliens, and spent it on Borderlands 2. -.2

          Btw, in case you don’t know, cdon.com has a campaign on Ubisoft games. Preorder two, get bot for 299,- each. Thought you might want to know. c:

      • Jake

        All developers have at least one crappy game. It may not be suck ass, or made in a day game but it can be bad. I must say Nintendo’s core games (Mario, Zelda) never had a bad game like a game like mario Artist. The only bad game that was part of their core franchise has to be (my opinion) is Paper Mario Sticker Star. IDK but i just hate that game. Note worst than aliens but bad.

        • Luffy

          i loved sticker star!
          it caught me by surprise and i love it when a game is not what i expect!

      • Michael Hancock

        What do you mean only 1 crappy game? Most of the Sonic games in the past 10 years have been just that, “crappy.” Not that this one doesn’t look awesome. Just sayin’.

        • Ducked

          True, Sonic 06, Sonic Riders, Sonic Riders Zero Gravity, Sonic and The Secret Rings, Sonic Riders Kinect. All crappy games imo.

      • Johny

        sorry dude.. but it kinda makes you look like damage control.
        while i do agree a company cant lose like..all respect for one crappy published game, but seriously. many Aliens fans were deeply “hurt”. if this game would be just an X franchise, yeah.. then yeah.. noone cares. its the game that people got hyped for, and it sucked… there are alot of those. But the problem is, that the game is a part of an ALIENS franchise, which is, after Aliens vs. Predator 1 & 2 known as a franchise that is super awesome, feels good to play, feels great to control, feels epic because of the movies and stuff… and they SHATTERED it with the new aliens game. its like RoboticLink said,… what if the new Smash Bros. U totally sucks, is no fit as a competitive fighter, unbalanced, huge framerate issues when playing more than 2 players on screen etc… dude … everyone would lose their mind… noone would forget. it would be a dark time for gaming ._.

        • Ducked

          First of off, it is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE for a Super Smash Bros game to suck. I know Aliens was hyped up, but it’s not like there was anything in gaming special about it before..

          • Johny

            lol i was going to the super extreme with super smash bros haha :D of course its gonna be awesome… but there are those hipothetical “IFs”
            yep exactly.. it was nothing special, it was FAR from what it was advertised for it, and it had many issues

    • I_I

      most of the games that SEGA published or made by them ware great however in Aliens: Colonial Marines case it’s fail project from the get go it’s a FPS sure it’s going to suck no wonder any game in that genre 99.99% going to suck

      • Keyser

        A little closed-minded, don’t you think? Just because you don’t like FPS doesn’t mean they all suck

        • I_I

          No most of them suck big time beside I didn’t say all of them I still like the raven games and the Atlus FP view RPG’s and a little bit of portal the rest is garbage. To me anything include FPS logic and online and all of that is rubbish and it’s destroying the gaming industries, besides if wasn’t for the online there is no challenge in these games it’s so easy and nothing about it say will I need to play it one more time.
          I’m sorry to offend your genre but there is no way to say it other than it’s suck big time and same goes for the developers behind it

          • Eric Degrechie

            Your English sucks big time. So does your logic. Ruining the industry? Hardly. Games like COD, love them or hate them, sell like mad and help keep the industry afloat.

          • I_I

            It’s not my language. Sales means it’s a big bubble waiting to explode. All of the casuals and wanna be hardcore playing FPS and sooner or later we will have no genres except FPS and MMO’s and tablets and phones games.
            the problem with COD I wish it’s a good entry for the gaming world but any casual who bought a console to try it stuck with it and doesn’t play anything else same goes for WOW. and developers will try to copy it and fail in the end say good buy to gaming and enjoy your phone or tablet.

          • Eric Degrechie

            There’s a ton of variety when it comes to even modern games. You’re just asserting this slippery slope where the game industry becomes stagnant and FPS, MMO’s and smart phone games become the only genres just because people enjoy them.

            If anything, trashing entire genres like you’ve done perpetuates a notion that there should be less genres. If everyone thought like you, there would be no MMO’s and FPS, only the genres you enjoy. So your delusion actually comes a bit closer to reality.

            It sucks you can’t enjoy FPS or MMO’s. You’ll be missing out on some good stuff.

          • I_I

            first of all I’m talking from years of gaming and I ply just about everything that come cross my hand. Why I said that about the end just look to the developers they’re falling one by one since last GEN, and trust me I hope I’m wrong but that’s what will happen in the end maybe next gen is the last one for all
            Talking about genre I played everything except monster hunter and phantasy star online on the dream cast and dragon quest DS trust me I’m not missing anything on the MMO side.
            FPS however I keep given them chances time after time but in the end it’s boring maybe they’re not for me to enjoy and even so if a new game came I’ll give it a try

        • reyn69sharla

          the only FPS i play is wolfenstein on my commodore 64……oops, did i just say that.

          • YoG99

            Ahhh, someone my age in here. Wolfenstein, the one and only FPS worth it. First game I’ve played with my brand new Sound Blaster 16 … such an upgrade from pc speaker. Man, it’s been a looooong time :)

    • Orto

      They published colonial marines, they didnt develop it. Sega is at its best when making sonic games and bayonetta. This just proves how good of a line up we have over the coming months. As soon as zelda u is announced we will have reached the promised land.

      • The Clockwork Being

        They published Bayonnetta they didn’t develop it. I am more excited for Monolith Soft’s X and SMT x FE than the new Zelda game.

    • Jandkas

      That was made by gearbox though

    • LordiMcKill

      Don’t blame Sega, blame Gearbox. Their the ones that flunked it off cos they thought making Borderlands 2 was more important.

    • stevieMHz

      Remember Sega was publishing on Aliens: Colonial Marines. GEARBOX was in charge of actual development.

  • SonicLucario

    This game looks really nice, still havent preordered this game yet but this will be added to the list of 10 games that have been preordered xD

  • AAAkabob

    I look forward to this more than Wind Waker TBH, only because I already played Wind Waker long ago.

  • Saleh Sbeiti

    Shiiit.

  • Lil J Moore

    The WiiU future looks very bright.

    • SonicLucario

      Indeed it does

      • Magnus Eriksson

        no, it doesnt

        • SonicLucario

          Like to jump to conclusions I see

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Logic blabla. You two said its future looks bright I said it doesnt. As far as the premises for today Im right, you’re wrong.

          • SonicLucario

            Your not making much sense sir

          • Lil J Moore

            When has he ever made sense?

          • Magnus Eriksson

            In what way does Wii U’s future look bright? That it doesnt sell consoles? That it doesnt get its games out as announced? That it lacks 3rd parties of relevance? Now it looks like a failing console. Thats rock bottom. But it COULD change, but for now nothing implies this. The premises we have NOW says it will fail. Maybe new premises tomorrow will appear, but thats then and not now. All senseful predictions of the future must be based on the premises we have now, not some future fantasy.

          • Lil J Moore

            You mean the same way the ps3 started and was labeled to be doomed? The same way the 3ds started before good games came out? Now look at them. Once good games start coming out the Wiiu’s numbers will pick up. It still hasn’t been one full year yet.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Sorry my friend, its not the same thing here.

          • John Raybell

            its pretty damn close dude

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Ps3 was the strongest its gen. Wii U is the weakest of PS4 and XBOne. PS3 got 3rd party devs on its console. Wii U does not.

          • sd

            How is it not the same? Pikmin 3 was released and saw sales triple in Japan. This is just one game and not even the big game, although it is an amazing one. The same happens every gen. You have the people spouting the same rubbish. you also get people annoyed due to a lack of games. It will happen again with the PS4 and Xbox One. I am buying an Xbox One and the critisism largely shifted from the WiiU to the X-1. Too many people like to vent their negativity, it is as simple as that.

          • sd

            If the Wii U fails then it will be a huge shame. There area heap of very good games being released for it over the next 12 months. Sure it might not be the runaway success of the WiiU, but I dont think it would be a complete failure. Based on current weekly sales in 5 years it would be at abou 15 million. But I am certain that sales will lift now games are being released, so at worst this would put the console around the 30 million mark in my opinion, but i think it will do a little better than this. Neither success nor failure. If you dont own a Wii U it is onlly you missing out.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            I own one. Day one buy.

          • Eric Degrechie

            I might be crazy, but maybe they’re saying it’s future looks bright because they’re excited about the games coming out. I don’t think they were talking about the Wii U making a comeback sales-wise, but from a consumer stand point.

            Anyway, if you believe the Wii U is dead or dying, why are you even here? Do you go to grave yards or terminal patients at hospitals and talk shit about the dead and dying? Petty.

            Why don’t you just let the fans enjoy it and not worry about whether you like it or not?

          • Orto

            Go back to ps4 daily you fony preacher. Your glory days died long ago. As soon as we get some good news you always bash us. What are you scared. Scared that we have so many good games coming out?

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Yup, Im scared I will get poor from buying games…

      • John Raybell

        kinda, need to prove them selvs beyond the games they have shown, i will get what is coming out this year and next year,but im looking forward to 2015 more when we find out about NEW titles

    • starwars360

      Indeed it do lots. Cannot wait for many upcoming Wii U titles. :)

  • Ducked

    I don’t know why they can’t make a full 3D or 2D sonic game. If your making a 3D Sonic game then why do you need 2D modes? I like a 2D sonic game in full 2D, as I like a 3D Sonic game in full 3D. Why do they have to keep combining both of them?

    Despite all of that, this game still looks amazing. Good thing Nintendo has this as an exclusive.

    • Gotallofthem

      Cause when they do only 3d people bitch, when they do only 2d people bitch. So they combined both. You can’t please everyone, case in point, you.

      • Ducked

        I’m sure Sega should realize people will complain either way, it’s stupid combining both modes in one game. It doesn’t please more people.

        • Luffy

          why is it stupid? i love it!

          • Ducked

            Because it gets annoying switching back and forth between 2D and 3D. It’s like Sega can’t make up there mind..

          • Luffy

            i dont know, i find it really cool!

          • Ducked

            Yeah, well maybe it’s just me..

          • Luffy

            Your probably not alone thinking that, just as I’m probably not alone thinking the opposite! :P

          • Ducked

            Yeah probably

    • starwars360

      I understand on it but I think Sonic in Sonic: Lost World is perfect looking game. I bet game going be epic. :)

      Cannot wait for this game.

      • Ducked

        Yeah I agree

    • Luffy

      i dont know. why cant they make both? i actually really like that approach and i feel it makes sonic games different from the rest.

  • Deadpool U

    Huh so John can write an article that doesn’t make him look like a troll.

    • Luffy

      honestly, when i saw his name i actually dread reading the article because i was sure he would put some of his opinion in it. (and his opinions are never nice things)
      so i was pleasantly surprise with this article. :p

      keep it up, and i may change my opinion of you! (for the better hopefully)

  • WiiUisgaming

    Help me with this petition to bring eShop to everybody.

    http://www.change.org/es-LA/peticiones/nintendo-bring-wiiu-eshop-to-everybody#share

    • Luffy

      and what is this about exactly?

      • WiiUisgaming

        Many people that does not leave in USA, Canada or Europe, are missing the Wii U eshop. I live in Latinamerica, and I am not able to enter the eShop, that means, I cannot download anything.

        • Luffy

          ok, got it!

  • John Raybell

    next time upload a good quality video, jesus, this is horrible, cant even tell what the game looks like!

  • JeanPaul

    I swear the only video of this game that I’ve seen that had good quality was the one where the guy was playing in the casino.

  • Mendoza Manuel

    The best camera love was from the Sonic Adventure series. In more recent games, I can’t remember a time where Sonic was running up a loop-de-loop, with the camera swinging around directly to the front of his face.
    Awesome.

    • Mendoza Manuel

      #jussayin
      Cuz the music used in the video took me back <3

  • Cubester_64

    New wisps!

  • Morris ヅ

    this games going to sell like crazy

    • $63955329

      I agree. it’s even gonna be an epic game. it even looks so cool that I want it now :D

  • NatT96™

    Not bad, sort of has twisted looking environments, that contain chunks of world fragments. Its basically a Super Sonic Galaxy. I will buy the 3DS version pretty soon, but not buying the WIi U version. Not that entertaining to buy on a console. This will be good on SEGA’s part, Aliens Colonial Marines anyone?

  • Ernesto Perez

    This game looks promising. Although I do kind of miss the gameplay style of the Sonic Adventure series. If I remember correctly, the last game in the series to have that style of gameplay was Sonic 06.

    That title would’ve been decent if only Sega wasn’t rushed while developing it. What ruined that game were the abundance of glitches, poor contols, and some elements of the plot. It makes me think if Sega were to create a remake of Sonic 06 with much of its flaws fixed. Sorry to get a bit off-topic here.

    • Luffy

      i know what you mean. i felt the exact same while playing 2006. unfortunately, the game was more about dodging bugs then anything else…

      but yeah, i would really love to see a fixed version ( why didnt they release a patch?)

  • sup3rnoah

    I’d like a sonic game in the style of DK64 and Banjo Kazooie. And of course a chao garden included. Best sonic game ever.

  • https://twitter.com/Onyzora Ony

    Why the Sonic Adventure 2′s Biohasard fight theme ? @_@

    edit: oh I thought it was an official video.

  • starwars360

    Sonic: Lost World going be epic. :D

    • $63955329

      it is gonna be epic. I cannot wait any longer and I’m pretty sure anyone can’t either

      • starwars360

        Yes!! It is October 2013. Not far away now. Very close to October now as we in August and it is 2 months to go. :)

        • $63955329

          thank goodness. I’m not faraway from gta5 either. I might as well get sonic lost world on 3ds in 2 months just before its released

  • LordiMcKill

    I don’t know what i’m impressed more by, the visuals or the gameplay. Definitely one of the best looking Sonic games and the gameplay matches that of the originals and the Adventure series which is a win win in my book.

    • boynhisblobs

      I played this at comic con and its really, really good. The visuals are stunning and the gameplay is really fluid and smooth for how fast it is.

      • LordiMcKill

        Now you’ve made me want it even more! lol

  • Luffy

    can’t wait for this game!
    at least i have pikmin 3 and monster hunter 3 to keep me occupied until then…
    (by the way, pikmin 3 is simply amazing. one of the best game of recent years.)

    • $63955329

      that’s cool and don’t worry. we don’t have long to wait for this. we only have 2 months left and the waiting will stop and this will be released :)

      • Luffy

        2 months! haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
        But I want it Nowwwww :( :P

        • $63955329

          same here. if only they would give it an earlier release me and you wouldn’t have to wait long still I have sonic generations to play on until it comes out

  • TheBritishSonic

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNhGO_CRPLc&feature=youtu.be&a here’s the full thing with direct sound and such

  • Elem187

    Is that the game that looks terrible or the poor youtube video?
