Sonic Boom images and trailer surface. Shows off Sonic and gang's redesign
SEGA's newest Sonic title, Sonic Boom comes in two mediums apparently, as a kid's show and a video game. The Official SEGA Blog has revealed some interesting tidbits regarding both the game and the TV show.
Talking about the TV Show, SEGA stated this:
The Sonic Boom television series, co-produced by SEGA of America Inc. and OuiDO! Productions, will debut on Cartoon Network in the U.S. and on CANAL J and GULLI in France during the 2014/2015 season. The series is an ensemble comedy consisting of 52 x 11-minute standalone episodes packed full of high-adrenaline action. Every episode starts from a small character-driven story and explodes into an epic tale of saving the world, robot battles and more.
And here are details on the video game:
Serving as a prequel to the stories revealed in the TV series, the Sonic Boom video game will deliver a totally different experience to previous Sonic games with collaborative gameplay at its core. Developed in the U.S by California-based Big Red Button Entertainment (Wii U) and Sanzaru Games (Nintendo 3DS) in collaboration with Sonic Team, this is the third title to be released as part of an exclusive deal with Nintendo. Sonic Boom will take advantage of the innovative hardware of both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, with traditional elements of Sonic games, such as speed, also featured. The videogame will also introduce exploration, combat and a new Enerbeam tether mechanic that will allow the Sonic Boom world to be discovered in totally unique ways.
Is the Sonic Team actually working on a true next-gen Sonic game? Only time will tell. I just really hope that this game is going to be good. I had high hopes for Lost World, but it ended up being fairly underwhelming.
And here is the trailer for the Sonic Boom TV show.
