So with Gamescom trailers and reveals happening today, the new trailer for Sonic Lost WorldSEGA promised last Thursday is now up on Gamespot’s Youtube channel. A new Frozen Factory zone, multiplayer modes and the return of elemental shields are shown off:
There’s also a new demo with a new Windy Hill zone, two Frozen Factory zones and a Silent Forest zone. If you’re going to Gamescom you can play it there for yourself, but for those not going there there’s this 22 minute long video with commentary showing it off after the jump. Impressions of the new demo can also be expected later this/next week here on Sonic Retro. Continue Reading
Wish you were at E3? Of course you do. That’s why you’re on the Internet right now, browsing every site possible and trying to get the latest info on every game you ever wanted (but were afraid to ask for). But even if you learn everything, it’s not the same as actually being on the show floor, seeing everyone trying to sell their games and tell you why it’s going to be the greatest thing ever. The veritable website Gamespot knows this, and has set one of their many visual hosts to stroll about Sega’s booth at the expo, showing off not only their Sonic-related content including Sonic Generations but also a handful of upcoming titles which are being published by Sega (they do make other games, in case you’ve forgotten) including Guardian Heroes and Renegade Ops. Aside from getting a brief glimpse of the Generations set-up, we get to enjoy Homer Rabara frightening a young PR woman with his microphone, watch a man in 3D glasses for far too long and in the final moments get a visit from everyone’s favorite brand manager of the past. Yes, Ken Balough’s bright shining face appears, even if he’s talking about Guardian Heroes and not Sonic the Hedgehog. And no, your ears are not deceiving you. The host accidentally calls Ken “Ben.”
Sonic Generations’ new brand manager, Aaron Webber, stopped by the GameSpot offices in San Francisco for another episode of “On the Spot,” where full playthroughs of both Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic in Green Hill were showcased. Ricardo Torres is the man.
For those wondering, the GameSpot tickets for “Sonic Boom” are gone, but stay tuned. Retro, Stadium and other outlets will have more tickets in the coming days. Special thanks to Woun for the video upload.
