Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice Gets a New Trailer for E3 2016

It’s been a pretty long time since Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice was last shown to the public. After it was delayed there was a bit of a drought with no new footage or info whatsoever. That’s changed now though as SEGA just released a new trailer for E3 2016 and we can finally confirm that, yup, it still looks like a Sonic Boom game.

It does look like there is some added variety with the new bosses and shoot-em-up sections, but aside from that the game looks like more of Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal. Which probably isn’t a good thing seeing how Shattered Crystal wasn’t that great. Still, the game will be playable at E3 next week so we’ll probably be able to see if Sanzaru has tried to make Fire & Ice much of an improvement over its prequel when new gameplay footage from the event gets put up online.

Fire & Ice will be released on September 27th, 2016 exclusively for Nintendo 3DS and will have a special Launch Edition in the US. The special edition will include a DVD with three episodes from the Sonic Boom TV show, which is surprisingly decent and worth taking a look at if you haven’t yet.

Update: The official Sonic Youtube account has uploaded the trailer to Youtube, and mentions in the description that “[a] number of notable improvements are being made to the game, including enhanced level designs built for speed, better functionality, and all-new Fire & Ice gameplay mechanics.”

    Guys, it’s obvious the delay was to meet up with the second season being on air to win more audience, judging from the trailer there’s little to no changes made to the game whatsoever.

    The fact it’s based on Shattered Crystal bothers me, I may be in the minority but between Shattered Crystal and Rise of Lyric I liked the later more, it at least had potential to be a mediocre Sonic game if it wasn’t for all the bullshit.

      It might look that way at first, but there’s definitely a pretty big difference when you directly compare last year’s trailer to this new one:

        I was just hit with nostalgia of fall 2011 when the new screenshots for Sonic Generations 3DS was revealed showing a couple of extra sunflowers over the older version.
