Whether you like it or not, the ‘super guide’ concept (where terrible video game players can use some in game system to get invincibility in or plain skip difficult levels after messing up too much) is becoming rather prevalent in modern games. But now, in a move which is at the very least a bit questionable, Sega is going one step further. They’re actually adding one to a classic video game. As in, the 3D Classics version of Ecco the Dolphin has a Super Guide whereas the original didn’t.
When it comes to fan works (or just about everything free that can be found on the internet), an often depressing rule seems to be that the good examples are both extremely rare and 99.9% likely to be cancelled before they’re complete, and that the most horrible examples tend to somehow get further along in production or even finished. And so here’s an article to make you even more angry at the video game fandom. One about five great video game fan projects that were cancelled long before their time.
Well, I think it’s probably going to be a horror game, I can’t see anything non violent/horror based coming from a sentence that starts with ‘[on this date] guts will be [blank here]‘. Unless we’re talking the world’s most ridiculous over the top Sonic the Hedgehog game. Or maybe the world’s first Mario and Sonic at the Olympics meets House of the Dead crossover. What will this game be? What’s the picture they’re teasing? Read on to find out…
Recently online, you may have seen a few articles talking about the possibility that the upcoming Sonic Lost World game had been delayed to November the 29th 2013 (thanks to the release date on the official site saying that). But thankfully, it looks like there’s absolutely nothing to worry about! Yep, someone working for Sega has confirmed the date is just wrong and will be changed soon.
Yeah, we get it. We said it would a few weeks ago based on what we considered a reliable source (Nintendo themselves). But now however, Sega has confirmed to IGN editor Rich George that said third title won’t be released this year and that the rumours mentioned before are false. Been busy but just re-confirmed with SEGA that the ‘third’ Sonic game in Nintendo’s three-game deal will not arrive in 2013. — Rich (@RichIGN) June 3, 2013 Sorry for the inconveniance to those who believed Nintendo of Germany’s PR the first time round. Are you disappointed about this? Source:
Like the look of Sonic Lost World or Mario and Sonic at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games? Don’t want to buy multiple Nintendo systems for whatever reason? Well it seems like you’re now in luck, since Sega has confirmed that both games are coming to both the 3DS and Wii U. Here’s confirmation from an IGN staffer on Twitter: Yes, SEGA confirmed that Sonic Lost World and Mario & Sonic Olympics are coming to 3DS and Wii U. — Rich (@RichIGN) June 3, 2013 Should be good, right? What version of these games are you buying?
Like the Sonic the Hedgehog series and are excited for the likes of Sonic Lost World? Well it seems like you won’t have much longer to wait, since Nintendo of Germany has mentioned that all three games are due out this very year! Yep, here’s their quote from an official press release: Today, they (Sega) revealed further details of the second of three titles, which the two companies will release exclusively on Wii U and 3DS. All three games will be released this year. Above: Sonic Lost World is one of three Sega games exclusive to Nintendo systems that’s due out in 2013. Well, it can’t get clearer than that, can it? And given that we only know about Sonic […]
Here are some fantastic screenshots of Sonic Lost World for the 3DS. Very Mario Galaxy like aren’t they? Makes me think the game will be a hybrid of 2D and 3D gameplay sort of like Mario’s own space adventures. The screens: So yeah, what do you think of Sonic Lost World so far? Are you hopeful it’ll turn out to be a fantastic game? And are you planning on getting the Wii U version or the 3DS version?
Here’s the box art for both the Wii U and 3DS versions of Sonic Lost Worlds. Enjoy! As you can see, there’s a lot of focus on those six characters there, implying that their role is certainly more important than that of any existing Sonic the Hedgehog character also featured in the game. Still, the game is apparently inspired by Super Mario Galaxy and does at least look like a traditional Sonic game, so here’s hoping for the best. What do you think of the Sonic Lost World box art?
Sega has just posted this image on its Facebook page, along with the message that: Six will rise from the Lost World. Are they friends or foes? Find out on May 29th. There’s no word on who these mysterious figures actually are (although I suspect they’re enemies based on the way they’re standing and the art style), but apparently they’re important to the game and will play a major role in it somehow. Who do you think these guys are? And what role will they play in Sonic Lost World?
