New patch for Sonic Lost World is out today

Sonic lost world

A new patch for Sonic Lost World is out today, correcting some bugs and issues some people were having with the game, including the fact that many were upset that collecting 100 rings didn’t grant the player an extra life.

SEGA released the patch notes stating the following:

• Collecting 100 rings will now grant the player an extra life.
• In the event of a Game Over, we have doubled the amount of lives the player will begin with when continuing. (From 5  to 10)
• The Indigo Asteroid, Crimson Eagle, Orange Rocket, and Black Bomb Color Powers can now be controlled using the analog stick and buttons.
• Fixed a rare graphical issue that would sometimes appear during the pinball section of the Frozen Factory casino area.

Additional Updates:

• When completing the NiGHTMARE DLC, users will be notified that they can re-play it after scoring 100,000 points.
• Items will now appear on the world map.

Looks like SEGA are ironing out the kinks in this beautiful game and they’ve done it pretty quickly as the game released at the end of October in North America. Have you experienced any of the issues described in the changelog?

    (The game would need a total fix, in my opinion.)

    • I am Error.

      I respect folks like it but I’ve been with Sonic since the early 90s and this title just lacked… fun. It wasn’t even graphically impressive and was missing the awesomely catchy music of earlier titles in the franchise. Sonic 1, 2, Generations, 4, CD and Colors. That’s it for me.

    So…… are you guys going to report the Wiiu’s large sales increase in Japan or what?

    48,000 Units sold last week, second to the 3DS only

    • Dj

      I didn’t even know that. Why don’t you become one of their writers?

    • Derek Anderson

      That article just went live, but you need to realize that we aren’t machines. While we try to write up the news as quickly and accurately as possible, we also don’t want to drown our readers with too many articles at once.

      • Nintedward

        True true, I didn’t mean to imply that you guys are slow or not doing your jobs or whatever, I was just trying to say that its such good news that you should report it!

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      It was in the works while this one was :3

  • QuizmasterBos

    The fact that there IS a patch annoys me more than the fact that it fixes some things that needed fixing.

    I think developers should start working on games for a longer time and we need to see a dramatic decrease in patches. I believe developers are either underestimating development time or underestimating gamers for thinking we put up with everything.

    This patch is not exactly fixing game breaking bugs like a lot of other patches do, but I still believe it’s better that the game works correctly and only has a (very) rare bug.

    • Nintendoplaystation

      Whilst I agree it is also nice that if there is something wrong that the developers may have missed cus you know we’re human and all that they can
      Fix it. But some developers will use it as a means to rush and fix later which Is wrong.

      • Arthur Jarret

        I wish we had patches back in the days of Battletoads for SNES, as well as balance updates to killer instinct… it was always sabrewolf vs. orchid due to their easy combos

    • greengecko007

      Every game has glitches, bugs, and exploits. I am thankful that we have developers that care enough to support a game after release.

  • Joey

    This is great…have not played my game for awhile but still love Sonic game, gonna get the patch today.

  • CEObrainz

    So what exactly is the new content, or am I just blind?

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      your blind

      • CEObrainz

        So are you going to tell me what I’m not seeing then? ;)

        • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

          you can see it in the Text page Smarty

          • CEObrainz

            Sounds like you can’t see it either?

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            i can see it but don’t wanted reading for you Bye

  • Mario

    I really need to get this game.

    • Sonic the Hedgehog

      Well, I already got yours…
      Great game!

      • Mario

        Glad you like it my old rival.

        • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

          So Mario want Sonic’s game and Sonic want Mario’s game Well that’s new

          • Mario

            A bit ironic. Isn’t it?

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            Hehe you think

      • Miles “Tails” Prower

        Sonic I just recently completed your game. Now I’m trying to get S rank on every stage. Great game Sonic. Also I knew we shouldn’t have trusted Eggman!

        • DarkLegacy

          A better way to get an S rank. Don’t lose rings and go fast as the speed of sound

          • Miles “Tails” Prower

            I normally try to go the speed of sound and collect all the rings while going fast normally I get S rank easy!

          • DarkLegacy

            This means I won’t need Riku, except for Donald and Goofy while I’m on a Pirate Ship or the train

          • DarkLegacy

            I get an S rank too while I complete a stage without dying and going as fast to beat the record

            Edit: When I mean record, I mean time. Basically It’s like you’ve had the current time to finish the stage, and then you beat it with a new record

          • Guest

            Don’t forget do smash those Badniks Tails

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            Don’t forget to Smash the badniks Tails

          • Miles “Tails” Prower

            Don’t worry Sonic. When you leave me behind I normally take out the badniks!

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            Never Notice Tails oh say to your Sonic Hi from me Ok Tails because i’m not the same Sonic i’m coming from the Year 2099 not everything is different between our Worlds i’ll will say

        • Mario

          Mario: I never trust anyone with an evil laugh.

          • Miles “Tails” Prower

            Someone that evil never needs anyone’s help.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            Like Eggman Tails

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            me too

      • Guest

        Yeah it is

      • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

        Yeah it is

    • Miles “Tails” Prower

      Your game is great Mario. Keep up the good work! Can’t wait to see where your next adventure will be.

      • Mario

        We will just have to see where Nintendo takes me this time!

        • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

          in SPACE Again you know Mario Galaxy 3

          • Mario

            Maybe.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            or Sunshine 2

          • Mario

            Or that.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            or Something New for example (i just say something) Bowser and Eggman are working together and you & Sonic must defeat those Enemies

          • Mario

            That would be even cooler!!!

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            Yeah i wonder that Nintendo & Sega can reach that and it will Ever Happen

    • DarkLegacy

      You want Sonic’s game? You should play it. It’s a great game. But what about mine?

      • Mario

        If KH3 gets out on the WiiU, I might just get it.

        • DarkLegacy

          You should hope. If it doesn’t get to Wii U then you’ll probably buy a PS4 or Xbox one, depends which console you like. I know you’re favourite is Wii U. But what I mean is the favourite console to play KH3 on

          • Mario

            I’m not sure about buying one (especially since I don’t have the money to buy either console).

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            and why you must buy a console from another company Plumber

          • Mario

            Heh,heh… Good point.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            yeah

  • Lord Tywin

    I wish they would add Pro Controller support. There really isn’t much of a second screen experience with this game.

    • C4

      Agreed :) . Won’t buy until then.

  • Squid

    That’s the perfect patch xD

  • Bryant Bautista

    SONIC STILL HAS 2 MOUTHS

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      Where ???

  • http://revenshift.wix.com/reven $81557538

    everyone check out this game! It will have gameplay mechanics similar to that of Metroid, Deus Ex, and Crysis. :D

    Loved Sonic Racing Transformed and also the Sonic Lost World, now even better with the update. It is SEGA’s equivalents to Mario Kart & Super Mario – and they’ve done it with style! Nice to see old rival is now a friend of Nintendo and it rocks on the Wii U!

    • Arthur Jarret

      I agree on many levels, but I especially agree on green hill zone.

      I still love sonic racing, it has a ton of content! Like MH3U – wii U daily really should do another livestream together with us, the readers. They said they planned to do more when they did the splintercell one, but unfortunately nothing was heard from livestreaming since.

  • Diana of Themyscira

    Sonic games just haven’t recovered since Sonic 06, this doesn’t interest me one bit unfortunately. Nothing will ever top Sonic Adventure 2 it seems.

  • Hulkamania

    i almost have the whole game beat. this patch was only to make the game easier because the game is quite hard.
