In addition to the main Sonic, which will remain blue and act as a core uniting “ghost” of sorts in-game, we're told there will be five other colors: Red, Orange, Purple, Green, and Yellow. We were told very specific things about each Sonic. Red Sonic, for example, can cause explosions to presumably open up new areas, but has a slow speed and a short jump. Purple Sonic, allegedly parodying Shadow and Silver, will be able to move platforms and float, with the dark nonsensical attitude to boot. And perhaps the most interesting tidbit: our sources compared the Orange personality to Big the Cat, a lumbering hedgehog even slower than his red counterpart…until he's powered up. There is also a yellow Sonic–not a Super Sonic–that will be the fastest of them all, but take damage easily. The source alleges only two of the personalities can be used in-stage, but all may be able to combine and act as an equivalent Super Guide. The White Sonic allegedly pops up as an option after dying in a stage a certain number of times. Using it guarantees the lowest rank at the end.
If that sounds a lot like a Nintendo idea, that's because it is, and no wonder; we've learned Sega is allegedly working directly with some Nintendo developers on this game. That's in addition to most of, if not the entire staff for Sonic Colors being back on board for Dimensions. The Nintendo developers are allegedly assisting Sega design the levels, which we're told will be more surreal, on similar thinking as Colors. Music Plant from Sonic Adventure 2 was cited as a stage that may see its ideas and concepts revived for Dimensions.
