If you’d like to test the water before diving into the pool that is Sonic Lost World, then you’re in luck! Demos for the 3DS and Wii U versions of the action-adventure platformer are now available to download from the eShop. Both demos let you take a run through the Windy Hill Zone Act 1, along with a tutorial segment on the 3DS.
These quick snippets should hopefully be enough to help you decide if this is your type of Sonic game. If you happen to check out the demo for either platform, be sure to let us know what you think.
