No details on the game were announced, only a single piece of artwork that you can see above. You can’t really glean any information from it, but we do see Sonic riding atop Tales plane, which may signify some “back-to-basics” or classic-style Sonic gameplay. But that’s only guesswork.
This is good news for WiiU fans, and a definitely “SONIC GET!” for Nintendo and Nintendo fans.
This isn’t the first time that Sega has released a Sonic game exclusively for a Nintendo platform however. Sega has released exclusive Sonic games for Nintendo platforms in the past including those below:
* Sonic Advance for Game Boy Advance (2001. Ported to N-Gage as SonicN in 2003)
* Sonic Advance 2 exclusively for GBA (2003)
* Sonic Advance 3 exclusively for GBA (2004)
* Sonic Adventure 2: Battle for Gamecube (2002)
* Sonic Adventure DX: Director’s Cut for GameCube (2003)
* Sonic Colors for Wii (2010)
And most recently,
* Sonic And the Secret Rings exclusively for Wii (2007) and
* Sonic and the Black Knight also exclusively for Wii (2009).
* That’s in addition to the Mario & Sonic Olympic titles which were Nintendo exclusives.
Nintendo of America President Reggie had this to say about the new Sonic Lost World WiiU/3DS game announcement.
“The onetime rivalry between Mario and Sonic has grown into a friendship that has never been closer. These announcements in conjunction with SEGA demonstrate the commitment we have to bringing great games to the Wii U platform, and set the stage for our upcoming announcements at E3.”
