Apparently, according to the site that shall not be named, there's a new sonic game coming out that takes place right after Sonic Generations and is a spiritual successor to Sonic Colors called Sonic Dimensions and it's being made specifically for the Wii U. It involves Sonic being split into many different colored Sonics, each with their own personality and powers, similar to the Wisp power ups.


So what's the gimmick this time? TSSZ has learned Dimensions's storyline will center around another time-space continuum shift at the hands of Eggman that not only alters Sonic's world, but himself. Sonic will allegedly split into multiple personalities denoted by color–each of which having their own unique abilities. That's right, if this holds, recolored Sonics are now a reality.

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.

What do you guys think? Rumor or not, would you guys be interested in this game? Discuzz.

Now THIS is an interesting concept. I'd love to see this confirmed.

Pffft. There's no way this is real. I'm not buying it for one second.

>"through a source"

Guessing Wentos made an appearence on 4chan today right?! :v:

But it does sound like something SEGA and Sonic Team would do. It (Meaning whatever the next sonic game is) better learn from Generations because were on a good track now, lets not derail it.

So if this game is real and sucks all blame will be put on SEGA. If it's good and does well everyone will praise Nintendo.

If this is true I really wish they'd stop coming up with retarded gimmicks and just make other characters playable again. Just Tails and Knuckles, is that asking too much? Sigh.

I'll get my wallet, Sega...

If this is true, hopefully the Wii U won't be as problematic as the 3DS. I'm not gonna buy it if it's too gimmicky. I avoided the 3DS for that reason and currently seem to have made the best choice.

Hey, I'd be all for a Nintendo and SEGA Sonic game. In fact, that would be pretty the most goddamn amazing thing ever. I seriously doubt this is true, though.

Would like more information/confirmation from a credible source, but otherwise not sure if want. If anything, this is the next project from the Colors team (read: Black Knight team) and the Generations team is already gearing up its next move.

It sounds like a really twisted version of Four Swords but with Sonic, and hopefully there's a co-op/versus multiplayer mode so you can screw around with each other in stage.
