UPDATE: In addition to the new trailer, the first screenshots and info for Sonic Lost World have been released by SEGA, too.
In a twist for the series, Sonic Lost World sees Sonic teaming up with Dr. Eggman to thwart the Deadly Six, six creatures previously under control of the evil scientist who have turned against their leader.
The game will introduce "dynamic new parkour moves and improved Colour Powers" which can be controlled by tilting and touching the Wii U GamePad, and feature a range of competitive multiplayer mode.
The Wii U version will also support off-screen play and a "two player support mode", while the 3DS version will be the first handheld Sonic title to feature "fully realised 3D levels", and will include exclusive Special Stages and unique Colour Powers.
ORIGINAL STORY: SEGA has released the first trailer for Sonic Lost World, offering a first glimpse at gameplay of the upcoming Nintendo-exclusive.
The trailer, which you can catch below, confirms a 2013 release date and shows Sonic running and jumping through a 3D world that appears similar to the series classic Green Hill Zone.
It looks like Sonic meets Mario Galaxy to me, but Tom isn't convinced. In fact, he called me an idiot for even suggesting it.
Whose side are you on? Let us know in the comments below.
Sonic Lost World launches exclusively on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS later this year. More information on the game is expected later today.
