We’ve seen glimpses of the Genesis and Dreamcast Era stages, leaving just one era to explore before Sonic Generations sweeps its way to consoles globally in a few weeks. Tonight, IGN has fired the last shot courtesy of Sega with the debut of the Modern Era trailer.
Set to the new remixes of Sonic 2006‘s Crisis City music, we’re given first glimpses of Crisis City, Unleashed‘s Rooftop Run, and Colours‘ Planet Wisp in full motion. Crisis City doesn’t miss a beat in terms of looks from its original counterpart, although we can only hope it doesn’t bring any stigmas from its origin game. The fire tornado is in its full presence, though it’s hard to tell if the two Sonics will have to avoid flying debris the tornado throws out, including any sort of automobiles.
The other big draw is the reveal of Planet Wisp, now even more crisp and vivid than before on its Wii origin stage. While some fans may be sad to see the level isn’t all green and does include Eggman’s construction sites, the stage still keeps its elegant charm. Even the Rocket and Spikes Wisps make returns with their announcer cues. ROCKET!
Meanwhile, Spagonia hasn’t ever looked so festive with all the hot air balloons, even if one of Dr. Eggman’s flying attack blimps is ready to wreck havoc on the city. Not much else is new here visually, as it’s been the most displayed stage these past months for the modern era. However, there’s still no sign of a Werehog!
And if that didn’t top it all off, we get one last sneak peek at a certain final boss making his grand return, now with a very unusual change to a dragon-esque scale look.
