Sonic Colors
« on: May 26, 2010, 01:08:39 PM »
A new Sonic Game has been announced for the Wii and DS, called:


A news article can be found here:

I shall also quote you a press release on this from aforementioned article if you are lazy like me.

Quote
"We're excited to announce a brand-new game for Sonic the Hedgehog! Sonic Colors is a high speed action-adventure in which Sonic races through theme park-inspired worlds to rescue a colorful alien race from the clutches of Dr. Eggman. An extraordinary amusement park has been seen orbiting around the home planet of Sonic the Hedgehog, and rumors are spreading that an alien race of Wisps, who have a unique colorful energy, are being held captive there by the evil Dr. Eggman. Soon after arriving at the amusement park, Sonic discovers he is able to use these mysterious alien forces to help the Wisps escape!

Sonic Colors will be available on the Wii and the Nintendo DS around holiday 2010. Sonic Colors for the Wii seamlessly combines both 3D and classic 2D game play perspectives, while the Nintendo DS version takes full advantage of the console's dual screen.

Sonic Colors sees Sonic accelerating to adrenaline-pumping super speeds and blasting through obstacles in ways never before seen in a Sonic game. The alien Wisps featured in the game each have a unique "Color Power" that, once freed, Sonic is able to absorb while speeding through the various theme park inspired planets. The Wisp energy enables Sonic to create new paths through the stages by drilling through the ground (Yellow Drill) for example, or speeding through the stage as a laser (Cyan Laser). Stringing the Wisp power-ups together creates a combo that increases Sonic's boost gauge even more quickly. Exclusive Wisp power-ups will be available for both Wii and the Nintendo DS versions, ensuring a unique and super speedy gameplay experience for Sonic fans everywhere."

As for my opinion, it is far too early to call whether or not it will be a good game or not. I am pleased to see Tails in that trailer though, perhaps we get to have our two tailed fox back to the way he was? And those Wisps seem to match with the colors of the Chaos Emeralds. Perhaps they are vital to the story in that way? *spoilers* :o!

Let the speculation begin!

I offer to you: TRANSLATION FROM SEGAPRSPEAK TO PESSIMISTIC GAMER:

Quote
Sonic Colors sees Sonic accelerating to adrenaline-pumping super speeds and blasting through obstacles in ways never before seen in a Sonic game.
This means that the game will be zoomed in too far to quite see what you're doing all the time, while also hinting at "amazing" graphics via QTE-triggered cutscenes for the entire duration of your time at the controller.

Quote
The alien Wisps featured in the game each have a unique "Color Power" that, once freed, Sonic is able to absorb while speeding through the various theme park inspired planets.
There will be no meaningful storyline, and what you're wondering happened in other games will go unexplained for years to come! 

Quote
The Wisp energy enables Sonic to create new paths through the stages by drilling through the ground (Yellow Drill) for example, or speeding through the stage as a laser (Cyan Laser).
Further, instead of directly make a sequal to other games whose mechanics we're hinting at, like you've been wanting for years and years, we're going to insult you're intelligence by expecting you to believe we made something new!

Quote
Stringing the Wisp power-ups together creates a combo that increases Sonic's boost gauge even more quickly. Exclusive Wisp power-ups will be available for both Wii and the Nintendo DS versions, ensuring a unique and super speedy gameplay experience for Sonic fans everywhere."
We will do everything in our power to make sure that this game is extremely difficult to chart, and there will be infinite combos everywhere, making Score Attacking into an absolute joke beyond anyone's comprehension of possibility!  This is to ensure that people who love and enjoy taking our games to the next level will cry and be shunned by the neo-fans who are often more likely to burp than cheer when patted on the back, due to their infantile nature we enjoy so very very much!

Seems like Sonic Rush 3 to me.

Oh, and you're all doing it WRONG. The proper logo is this, obviously:

Will it be renamed with a "u" in Colours in Britain. That's the main question on my mind. Because there's no way I'm ever going to buy this game. Not after Unleashed.

Yes, European and Australian releases have it as "Colours"

This.

My first impressions were: "oh god what's wrong with his hands they're huge" and "two steps forward, three steps back."

Interested to hear more about it, though.

I can't wait for the gameplay from Sonic Unleashed to come back.
I love to play Mario and Sonic games with a mix of Donkey Kong and Kirby games. Yes I'm a Nintendo nerd.

Then after which, they'll bring out S4E2, then another 3D fail, et cetera.

This trailer and game through the eyes of the typical "Sonic Fan"



Sonic Colors, i.e. "Sonic Goes to Weed World." It would be epically hilarious if it turned out that the aliens were evil all along.

While we're at it, let's play a game and come up with ideas that Sega could rip off and slap Sonic into. The other players must guess the source material.

1. Fighting demons through the power of suicide.

Ever know what its like to get pwned by a book? Sonic certainly does.

Documented for future. If this is true, magnum gets 10 internets.

2. Manipulate time identically to what's seen in Braid, use "Chaos Control" in title somewhere.

3. Pointing fingers at each other and shouting!!!
That alone ... is INSUFFICIENT!!!

EDIT:
http://www.sonicstadium.org/news/rumour-sonic-colours-info-from-nintendo-power
I'm a bit less skeptical now ... though disappointed that Tails still appears to be non-playable.  Also, Eggmanland return?  Yay, they never explained whatever happened to it.

EDIT 2:
I sense nobody else gives a fred about this?  According to TSS, both Colors and 4 will be playable at E3 this year.

Good looking. Great art style, better than the last few sonic games. You just know it'll play like a bit, fat poo though.

"Capcom and Konami have both taken dead series of yesteryear and made them fully playable in today's gaming universe, retaining much of what made them amazing in the first place, while still managing to not feel like a copy of prior games.  SEGA, completely unable to do this, continues to insult it's longest-standing fans because they still buy the worthless shit they put into the cases for sale at game-whores (gamespot to the uninitiated)."

Why, SEGA, do you do this to us!?

Double post ftw.

So the E3 trailer has been released.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7bt49zGN8g&feature=player_embedded
(if someone can embed it for me, please do so.)

There are also new screenshots as well. You may also see the Sega blog here: http://blogs.sega.com/usa/2010/06/15/new-trailer-and-screens-for-sonic-colors/#comment-32245


Yes i would like fries with that.




Yes, because we keep aliens in capsules.
Holy shit look at that planet!




Here we see the drill in action.




That fucking planet!




*laser noise here* More aliens in capsules.



And now for my favourite screenshot.

HOLY FUCK SONIC RUSH 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will be getting the DS version, regardless of what anyone says. You may resume speculation.

I didn't realize the background planet in that Tropical Resort picture.

There were screenshots in Nintendo Power that showed most of this stuff.  Tropical Resort is a new revelation though.  I think.

Even saw the drill and laser in screenshots.

I'm still not all that interested.  I see Cruizer's hooked on the DS version though.
