As some of you may know the Tokyo Game Show has just finished up, and SEGA being SEGA had a live performance from Jun Senoue. Now Jun has just posted up this amazing music video showing off three melody's from the Sonic Generations, including Chemical Plant, Seaside Hill and Rooftop Run.
Plus in the background we get a better look at some of the levels from Generations. Now if you'll excuse me I need to drool at this a couple more times.
So out and about on my travels after Summer of Sonic I came across something interesting at at the gaming centre in the Trocadero. It seems that the Sonic Generations demo has been setup... with a steering wheel and pedal set...
Maybe it's an early test by SEGA of alternate forms of control for Sonic... the steering wheel actually makes a bit of sense if you consider that they are designed to control fast moving object and Sonic does fall into the category. Maybe the pedals are the jump controls?
Or it could be that the controls are not connected and someone was just being industrious and making use of an un-used screen but that's far less entertaining!
Last week it was announced that if you pre-ordered Sonic Generations at Gamestop stores you would also get an exclusive DLC pack. As usual this offer was US only so the rest of the unclean none American Sonic fans were left wondering whether we would get a similar offer. Well it seems that question has now been answered, in the UK at least.
In my local Game store today I noticed several boxes promoting free DLC if you pre-order and purchase Sonic Generations, see picture below.
Whether this is the same DLC pack as the one Gamestop has remains to be seen but it seems likely considering the artwork in the background, but the real question is, will this turn out to be a repeat of last years Argos fiasco offering a free Sonic Colours figure with every pre-order and then going back on it... hmm I'm getting cynical in my old age.
With E3 this week it's no surprise that a trailer for Sonic Generations has gone up, and what better level to show off than City Escape from Sonic Adventure 2 which celebrates it's 10th birthday.
For a bit more insight into a few references that turn up in the trailer head over to Sonic Wrecks.
The teaser trailer left the fans hungering for more info and today it's been revealed that the trailer was for the brand new Sonic game Sonic Generations, the title rumoured throughout the fanbase over the last few months. SEGA officially announced the title on their blog today, along with a snazzy logo. Below is a new trailer featuring gameplay snippets... Full credit to IGN for this!
Unless you live under a rock (and hey, as a geologist I quite like that idea), you've no doubt heard that SEGA planned to release a Sonic related trailer today. I think we were all half expecting a game announcement/confirmation, but who saw THIS coming?
