Sonic Generations GET!

Well Sonic Generations finally sped its way to my door this morning since Amazon offered Release Date Delivery for the game! Right now I am still playing Solatorobo however, so I’ll have to just pick one of my new games to start playing next! ūüôā

Sonic Anniversary – Through the Ages video

A nice trailer showing Sonic through the ages. Although it only tries to show the main games in the series instead of all the spin-off games. Can’t wait to pick this up for PS3 & 3DS this holiday season!

[UPDATE] Sonic Generations stages/bosses/characters/items leaked from demo

A Sonic fansite has either hacked the demo or reverse engineered it into finding out what stages will be in the final game.

I have embedded them after the break because it will be considered major spoilers for some people.

Sonic Generations demo coming tomorrow (Jun. 23)

Sega will release a demo of Sonic Generations tomorrow (6/23). The demo will allow players to sample the game’s first act, Green Hill Zone, using the “Classic Style” play style, and will support 3D televisions.

The demo will only be accessible for 20 days. On July 12, the demo will disappear from PSN and Xbox Live Marketplace. Downloaded versions of the demo will expire on that date and will no longer run.

This is where things get a bit tricky for PlayStation 3 owners. PSN is still not up in Japan, so PS3 owners will not be able to immediately download the demo. Sega’s press release announcing the demo stated that the July 12 expiration date applies to the PS3 version as well regardless of when it’s downloaded. If PSN is not restored prior to July 12, the PS3 version demo will not be released.

PSN is up in other parts of the world, so PS3 owners outside of Japan will want to check their shop tomorrow, assuming the demo is a worldwide release.

For Xbox 360 owners, Gold Membership will be required until June 30.

Yay, I’ve been waiting all year since the game was revealed for a chance to get to play it. Only a few more months until we get to enjoy this new Sonic game! ^_^

Sonic Generations “City Escape” Trailer

Wow, I am so glad that SEGA isn’t simply copying over the stages from the old games. It’s great to see new level design and two kinds of gameplay with Classic & Modern Sonic. Definitely picking this up day one!

Who recognizes this stage in Sonic Generations?

Can you guess what level this is from Sonic Generations on the PS3 & 360? If you’ve played all the games, you will definitely know where this came from. Awesome new screenshots below!

Sonic Generations 3DS footage, looks awesome!

Wow, I was expecting the game to look like the Sonic Rush series. The game seems to look much better, I can’t wait to play it this year. We only have a few more months until Sonic Gemerations is released on PS3, 360, and on 3DS!

Sonic Generations 3DS announced

Celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog’s 20th Anniversary in a Whole New Dimension!

LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (June 1st, 2011) ‚Äď SEGA¬ģ Europe Ltd. & SEGA¬ģ America, Inc., today confirmed Sonic Generations‚ĄĘ will be released on Nintendo‚Äôs new handheld system, Nintendo 3DS‚ĄĘ in November 2011. Set across three defining eras from Sonic the Hedgehog‚Äôs twenty year history, Sonic Generations‚ĄĘ for Nintendo 3DS will see SEGA‚Äôs mascot speeding through new stereoscopic 3D levels designed exclusively for the handheld console.

‚ÄúSonic Generations for Nintendo 3DS will combine brand new technology and twenty years of Sonic the Hedgehog videogame heritage‚ÄĚ commented David Corless, Global Brand Director for Sonic. ‚ÄúCouple this with the ability to play as both Classic and Modern Sonic and you have the perfect gaming celebration for the landmark anniversary of our much loved mascot‚ÄĚ

The specifically designed Nintendo 3DS environments, based on iconic levels from popular Sonic the Hedgehog titles, will include an exclusive unlockable ‚ÄėSpecial Stage‚Äô allowing players to become even more immersed in Sonic‚Äôs world. Sonic Generations for Nintendo 3DS will also take advantage of the StreetPass‚ĄĘ feature by enabling players to collect new content and unlock bonus material each time they pass another player. In addition to this, the new two-player versus mode means fans can battle it out across some of the most recognisable Sonic environments in a completely new way.

Sonic Generations for Nintendo 3DS follows the same storyline as the previously announced platforms, with Sonic and his friends pulled back through time due to a mysterious new power which is causing chaos throughout the universe by creating strange ‚Äútime holes‚ÄĚ. Sonic Generations will be available for the Xbox 360¬ģ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation¬ģ3 computer entertainment system and Nintendo 3DS system in November 2011.

Can’t wait, I’ll definitely be picking up a copy for the PS3 and the 3DS. It will be awesome!

Nintendo Power Sonic Generations 3DS details

Details about the 3DS version of Sonic Generations have appeared on the net. Just like Sonic Colors, the handheld and console games will be slightly different:

The Nintendo 3DS version is being co-developed by Sonic Team and Dimps.
* The director of the 3DS version is Tetsu Katano, who directed Sonic and the Black Knight.
* 2D side-scrolling gameplay for both Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic.
* Momentum based gameplay and platforming are fully featured in the Classic Sonic gameplay.
* Modern Sonic plays a lot like the Sonic Rush games and Nintendo DS version of Sonic Colours.
* Nintendo 3DS version will have exclusive stages and boss stages.
* Green Hill Zone will be the only shared stage across all versions.
* Casino Night Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is confirmed for the Nintendo 3DS version.
* Story has some differences between the console and Nintendo 3DS versions, but will be fundamentally the same.
* Console version will have many characters, but the Nintendo 3DS version will only feature the ones who are integral to the story.
* There is no Wii version. Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka says this is because ‚ÄúThe primary goal for the console versions of Generations was reimagining the series‚Äôs classic zones in vivid, high-definition graphics.‚ÄĚ
* Sonic the Hedgehog 3‚Äės Launch Base Zone ‚ÄėBig Arm‚Äô boss fight is in the game, which suggests that stage is also in the game.
* Classic Eggman appears in the above mentioned boss.
* Exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS version are challenges that you can unlock via StreetPass or Play Coins.
* The game also features an exclusive two-player race mode via local wireless connection.
* Modern Sonic stages take advantage of the 3D feature more than the Classic Sonic stages. An example shown and detailed is a part in the Green Hill Zone where Modern Sonic smashes through the bottom of a giant totem pole. The camera then moves to the front of Sonic and lets you see the rest of the pole collapse behind Sonic as he escapes.
* The 3D depth is also highlighted when Modern Sonic occasionally moves between the foreground and the background.
* Jun Senoue and his music team are working on the music for the game.
* Nintendo Power thinks the handful of tracks they‚Äôve heard so far are ‚Äúfantastic‚ÄĚ.
* Special Stages are confirmed and are designed in Sonic Heroes style. As expected, you earn Chaos Emeralds from these stages. Whether or not Super Sonic will be your reward for earning all Chaos Emeralds is unclear
