Press release translated with Google:


LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (May 26th, 2010) SEGA ® Europe Ltd. & SEGA ® America, Inc. today announced Sonic ™ Colours, the new high-speed adventure of our famous hero Sonic the Hedgehog. Struggling with saving a colorful alien race fall into the clutches of Dr. Eggman, Sonic will face many obstacles along an inspired sci-fi themed amusement park. Sonic Colours will be available on Wii ™ and Nintendo DS ™ at the end of 2010.

A unique playground has been seen orbiting the planet of Sonic the Hedgehog. Some rumors speak of an alien race called wisps, with a rare colored energy, which is now imprisoned here, by the evil Dr. Eggman. Sonic, once arrived on the planet's entertainment, you can use immediately made aware of this rare power to help colored wisps in the escape! The Wii version of Sonic Colours combines both 2D and 3D gaming perspective, while the Nintendo DS version takes advantage of the characteristics of the double-screen console.

"The lively alien universe of Sonic Colours allows players to race at breakneck speed along amazing planets, each with its peculiarities and unique visual style." Comment on Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing SEGA. "In addition to classic Sonic gameplay, new power-wisps, they offer an innovative way to explore these new worlds and help Sonic to run faster than ever!"

The new Sonic hedgehog Colours see our dear speeding, jumping off himself among enemies like never before in a Sonic game. The aliens WISPs are able to free their "Colour Power" that can be absorbed by Sonic drilling to create new roads, for example, the ground (via the Yellow Drill), or go through the whole internship at supersonic speed (thanks to Cyan Laser). Combining the different available energies can further increase the speed of Sonic and his abilities beyond imagination. Lots of power ups and exclusive versions will be available for Wii and Nintendo DS for a brand new super-fast gameplay of Sonic for fans around the world.

Sonic Colours will be available on Wii ™ and Nintendo DS ™ at the end of 2010.


Wii version sounds like Sonic Unleashed daytime levels, which would be awesome.

Is this is what Sonic Team have been working on instead of Sonic 4?

Also being on the DS and Wii, what's this all about? Maybe "Sonic 2011" is solely for the 360 and PS3...

Why does this sound like yet another gimmick game?

But the trailer looks sweet. I love the cutesy approach, and I pray to God this will be good. Two Sonic games on the horizon now! Looking forward to hearing more, if it looks good, the DS version is mine.

EDIT - Love that snippet of music as well.

It's screaming Mario Galaxy to me, mostly because of the alien planet involvment and I actually don't mind that. Here's hoping...

It looks nice! Interesting concept, too. Chances are, the actual game won't look as good as the trailer, but still.

I send this as a tip to Destructoid. One of the editors, Dale North, send me an email back saying:
Got this, as I've actually played it

So it sounds like we could get some hands-on previews soon.

At first I thought it was going to be WiiSiWare, but now I'm not so sure. Definitely loving the colourful aliens, though I reckon they're going to get a bit of hate. If it turns out it IS just like Unleashed, I'd hope that there are/is:
a) more 2D than 3D because the 3D wasn't great,
b) better physics and slightly better level design for the 2D sections.
And wow, that was certainly out of the blue (no pun). Not like the Project Needlemouse trailer.

>Sonic and Tails running together

This game is already off to a good start. Note the sarcasm.

So what the fuck is it, a gimmick game or it is an actual platformer?

Because every game has "gimmicks" and new concepts to keep things fresh?

So now we have Pokémon. Well, it sounds like they'll be able to come up with some cool new concepts for split paths. I do hope uses the Sonic Unleashed gameplay style and takes it to the next level (pun not intended).

I was kind of hoping for another multiplatform title, but I guess with Dimps busy with Sonic 4 we could only get Wii and DS.
