New Sonic game to be titled ‘Sonic Excursion?’
According to gaming blog IHeartNintendo, the same source informing them about the title to Sonic Generations has told them the title of the next sonic game, said to be ‘Sonic Excursion’. Running out of cool fast sounding names, have you Sega? Joking aside, here is the information dump from IHN as to what their source has stated on Sonic Excursion.
-Level titled “Shattered Heights” will be reminiscent of New York. Wil consist of Sonic and Tails breaking through tall buildings as humans gasp in horror
-Sonic and Tails communicate to each other in every level and discuss surroundings. Each character can access parts the other character can’t.
-Developers aim to make a Sonic Generations that played like the Genesis titles
-The game will feature Sonic, Tails, Eggman, Knuckles, and Amy Rose, along with some sort of Magical necklace.
-Emblems will make returns. Levels will include S rank missions, “Collect all Red Ring” missions, and side missions for ever character.
- Will be released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, 3DS, PlayStation 4, and Xbox Infinite November 2013. All the versions will be the same, PC PS4 and Xbox Infinite will have much higher resolutions. 3DS version will not be handled by Dimps
First off, might I point out that their source mentions the Xbox “Infinite” which is a misspelling of the rumored name “Xbox Infinity”. The first description of them breaking through tall buildings sounds… odd, to say the least. I hope that Sega has learned their first good lesson from the past two main Sonic games, Colors, and Generations, and are putting just the right amount of spice on the formula to keep it fresh, but not enough to ruin it. I am talking to you, Werehog.
