Sonic Lost World is one of three upcoming Sonic games that will arrive exclusively on Nintendo platforms. When the game is released on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U later this year, it will introduce new gameplay and enemies, according to Sega of America President John Cheng. Sonic Lost World will be a brand-new game – not a reiteration, says Cheng. Because the Wii U is the only home console that will receive the game, Cheng suggests that SEGA’s blue mascot will help boost sales of the Wii U.
“With ‘Sonic Lost World,’ we’re going to introduce new gameplay and enemies, which is always fun. In terms of Sonic and his friends, he’ll have his same friends there, and I think there’ll be some new ones as well. It’s not a reiteration. It’s going to be all new.”
