Another year, another Sonic. While the hardcore are still reeling from Sega's decision to push Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 from a summer release until the end of the year, it now means the tail of 2010 will feature two new Sonic games. Introducing Sonic Colors for the Wii and DS.
There's not much to say about Sonic Colors just yet, except that Sega's promising the Wii game will apparently "seamlessly combine both 3D and classic 2D gameplay perspectives." I don't want to be cynical, but it wouldn't be out of line to say that we've heard that one from Sega before.
In Sonic Colors, the hedgehog is tasked with saving the mysterious alien race the Whisps from the clutches of Dr. Eggman
Robotnik. As Sonic collects the various Whisps, he'll gain powers from each of them, such as "drilling through the ground" or "speeding through the stage as a laser."
With an announcement this close to E3, it's likely Sonic Colors will be shown in just a few weeks.
