Sonic Generations Announced

Sonic Generations


Following on from our previous article here , SEGA have officially unveiled their new Sonic game titled “Sonic Generations“.

Sonic Generations boasts “the definitive Sonic experience for fans old and new” as both classic (1991) and modern versions of Sonic make themselves useable, players therefore get the best of both worlds with 2d and 3d gameplay from each era in the spiky blue hedgehog’s new adventure, and rest assured that both Sonics will have their trademark techniques – the spin dash and spin attack for classic Sonic, and the homing attack and sonic boost for modern Sonic. The game features old, instantly recognisable levels rebuilt in HD, a brand new “innovative” interactive menu system, and hidden treasures that can gradually be discovered throughout the game. David Corless, Global Brand Director for Sonic said, “Sonic Generations will certainly be a fitting celebration for Sonic’s 20th Anniversary”, he then went on to say, “By having the classic 1991 Sonic that many fans know and love team up with his modern day incarnation, we are bringing back the nostalgia of the early days of Sonic and combining it with the innovation and stunning HD technology of the modern gaming era. Sonic Generations will bring to life the last twenty years of Sonic’s universe in a truly unique and imaginative way.”

SEGA have also released a synopsis of the in-game story which offers an explanation as to how two incarnations of Sonic can be present at the same time, it is as follows:” Sonic’s universe is thrown into chaos when a mysterious new power creates ‘time holes’ which pull him and his friends back through time. As a result, he encounters some surprises from his past history including Classic Sonic, Sonic as he was in 1991. Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic must defeat this strange new enemy, save their friends, and find out who really is behind this diabolical deed…”

As one of the great video gaming icons alongside Mario, Sonic has surprisingly yet to receive a quality game on current generation consoles which rivals the likes of Nintendo’s Super Mario Galaxy series on the Wii, even after numerous attempts by SEGA. It is therefore with some measure of caution that fans have high hopes for this title, surely it can’t be as bad as Sonic the Hedgehog (Xbox 360/Playstation 3), can it? Answers to this will come closer to the end of 2011 when Sonic Generations is released for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
