Last week, SEGA revealed Sonic Boom, a video game/cartoon series that’s a spin-off of the Sonic The Hedgehog title, to the world. Today, we have a few more details about the upcoming game that’s a prequel to the series. And from what it looks like, it’ll make this next installment an interesting title to play. Some of the new changes/details of Sonic Boom are:

  • The Wii U GamePad will be used to display a map and upgrades, as well as another function which is yet to be unveiled
  • The game follows an adventure style with currency and upgrades for the characters
  • The game is more “organically” challenging, in that difficulty arises from skill in combat and finding hidden secrets as opposed to enemies just becoming tougher
  • All the levels in the game are connected by the story and its locations
  • Two characters will be mainly used at a time during gameplay, but all four will show up in hubs and boss fights
  • There will be points in the game where you are required to use a certain character to proceed
  • The game will be very character driven, with a lot of focus put onto each individual character and their unique abilities
  • Other characters from the Sonic series will be making appearances in the game – these will be revealed over the coming months
  • Inspiration is being taken from Sonic 2, Sonic Adventure, and Sonic Generations
  • Last but not least, the Chaos Emeralds will not be in Sonic Boom

Those were all the changes that were released today about Sonic Boom. It all adds up to make this next installment a questionably interesting experience for Sonic fans, both young and old. But with the loss of the Chaos Emeralds (which also means no Super Sonic), it really makes you wonder if the new direction this title is taking will be good or bad. Either way, I’m interested in seeing how this all unfolds.
