Yes, there’s a brand new Sonic game heading to your favourite mobile platforms. The latest game is a follow up to Sonic Runners which launched in 2015 and is titled Sonic Runners Adventure. The title was spotted on mobile publisher and developer Gameloft’s customer care site. Sega Retro has listed a few details which set it apart from its predecessor

  • While the original Runners required an internet connection at all times, Adventure will only require it when starting the game for the first time. After that the game can be played offline.
  • There are now three different kinds of level types: Finite, Looped, and Infinite.
    • Finite levels require you to reach a finish line to finish the level.
    • Looped levels are short levels that repeat for several laps, where you need to reach the end of the last lap.
    • Infinite levels are endless and require you to complete all available goals to finish them.
  • It looks like the levelling system has been overhauled. While you could level up characters in the original Runners up to level 100, characters in Adventure will already be fully levelled up at level 5.
  • Characters are now part of teams, which include Hero, Chaotix, and Dark. Each having an unique skill that’s triggered after collecting 300 rings.
  • The original game’s gambling mechanics appear to be gone, and instead characters can now be unlocked by buying them with rings.
  • Special stages make an appearance, and in this iteration you fly and collect rings.
  • There’s a new Timed Mode, where the level ends when the timer reaches 0.
  • In Finite and Infinite levels there are moments where the camera angle will change to showcase stunts.

  1. Not sure if this is the actual sonic mobile game right there. A few months ago, SEGA did mention that they were gonna take a break from mobile gaming for a while. But, if Sonic Runners adventures be a new IP for SEGA, then it’s worth to try to see more evidence on this rumor.

  3. I played the other one a decent amount and this sounds like it fixes all the things that started to make the last one seem stale over time. Interested in seeing how this turns out.
