Sonic Boom™ - Video Game Reveal Trailer

Sonic Boom video game will deliver a totally different experience to previous Sonic games with collaborative gameplay at its core. Developed in the U.S by California-based Big Red Button Entertainment (Wii U) and Sanzaru Games (Nintendo 3DS) in collaboration with Sonic Team, this is the third title to be released as part of an exclusive deal with Nintendo. Sonic Boom will take advantage of the innovative hardware of both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, with traditional elements of Sonic games, such as speed, also featured. The videogame will also introduce exploration, combat and a new Enerbeam tether mechanic that will allow the Sonic Boom world to be discovered in totally unique ways. (3DS, Sonic Boom, Wii U)

I have absolutely no idea how to feel about this..Like, woah.

I've been a Sonic fan from since the days of Sonic Heroes; that was one of my first video games and also my first Sonic game. Seeing him go through all these experiences over the years has been a wild ride, and now, this comes along..Completely different from anything we've seen before.

It isn't the first time they've transformed the series..but this is just woah...
Abash  +   731d ago
If the series hadn't gone such a drastic transformation, I'd be excited. But this isn't the Sonic I grew up with, it just doesnt appeal to me
-Foxtrot  +   730d ago
They've said it's based on the new TV show they are doing.....AGES 8 - 11

Gee thanks SEGA for ditching the majority of your fanbase.

Oh and look at that Amy looks more "sexed up". Seriously what was wrong with her old designs.


I mean the whole trailer was just really cheesy

"Ooooo look a secret room"

You think Tails.

Oh and whats with all four of them managing to keep up with Sonic when he's running.

People get hyped up for Sonic every time and then the game is disappointing almost every time. Sonic fans have the absolute worse Battered Person Syndrome ever.

2d scroller, then a spin off then an awsome 3d main title..
Typical Nintendo all over it (Mario bros then winter olympics then 3d Mario)
I have a gd feeling about this one!
dedicatedtogamers  +   730d ago
Looks like a Ratchet & Clank game.

I'm okay with this.
erathaol  +   730d ago
It does, this clearly isn't made for me anymore, I hope its a good game for the new generation of sonic fans.

From the screens of the new show, it looks like they are relaunching Sonic as a whole. I wish SEGA the best.

Must have been the Dubstep that got to me, I feel woozy.
thezeldadoth  +   730d ago
looks really fun to me
N4g_null  +   730d ago
I'm curious erathol what is your demographic? The old sonic clearly was going to kill the franchise. I'm not crazy about the new ninja turtles but I'm not going to pitch a fit. There are two to 3 different designs for them. The same goes for transformers. Yet im fine with them all. I'm not understanding who you are and how sega can please you lol. You don't like skrillex well damn I'm not sure I would want to see the sonic game you want.

How about you come up with your own version of sonic and call him something else and show sega how it's done!

"Sonic Boom video game will deliver a totally different experience to previous Sonic games". Dammit so a swing and a miss again then?

NO PS4 or vita or PS3 hmmmmm
2015 then but anyway it looks promising

Majority of the sonic fanbase play on nintendo platforms.
sonic989  +   730d ago
shows the sales numbers for lost world on WIIu and 3ds opps i didnt
mcstorm  +   730d ago
sonic989 SweetDangos is right. Sonic games have sold better on Nintendo's consoles than the other two. Sonic all star transformed sold more on the Wiiu than the total sales of the game on the ps3 and 360.

I really enjoyed lost world and this looks different again. Need to see more game play before I say ill grab it but loving the support Sega are giving the Wiiu.
Blood_Tears  +   729d ago
Do you have a source or link for that? Because looking here both PS3 and X360 versions outsold the Wii U version
rdgneoz3  +   730d ago
"this is the third title to be released as part of an exclusive deal with Nintendo."

Sonic won't be on another system for a bit. Also, with how the trailer looks, it won't be too disappointing.
erathaol  +   730d ago
You wouldn't suppose this is what he's going to look like in next Smash Bros?
rdgneoz3  +   730d ago
I hope not...
Neoninja  +   731d ago
Man it looks like Knuckles been hitting the weights. Some of the gameplay reminded me of Sonic Heroes.
Dravidian  +   730d ago
My Thought exactly. Heroes was pretty good, but had a bunch of flaws, imo. As long as this doesnt replace the main series I can see this becoming a fun side-series.

Also, water running is awesome.
XiSasukeUchiha  +   730d ago
Sonic Boom sounds pretty cool, but i'm being careful of my hype
sonic989  +   730d ago
thats my PSN name Sonic-Boom XD
yeah i like that name
BlackWolf  +   730d ago
I'm sorry, but I'm sitting this one out. Too much of the original Sonic fan to like this new... er.. "direction"... Also, what the hell did they do Knuckles and Eggman? Are they on roids or something?

They would have to bring something really good to get me to pay attention to this game. From this trailer, tough, I'm not feeling it.

Dubstep, friends working together in harmony and Sonics hipster's being aimed at Kids

What is with Dubstep in trailers these days
KonsoruMasuta  +   730d ago
Friends working together in harmony isn't anything new in a Sonic game. Ever hear of Sonic Heroes? Kid friendly Sonic is nothing new either. Most Sonic games are rated E for everyone.

Although I don't like the hipster scarf, dubstep, or Knuckle's redesign.

Yeah and nobody liked it...meaning SEGA still hasn't learnt anything.

Sonic and Tails....thats all we really need with the odd cameo appearance from Amy/Knuckles
SoapShoes  +   730d ago
^ Ummm I quite liked Sonic Heroes and it averaged 8/10 in reviews soooo...
Snookies12  +   730d ago
Yeah, the dubstep thing is pretty off-putting for me. The game looked like it might be fun, but I'm just not sure what it's trying to be...
inversense  +   730d ago
Why are people judging the game off of the fact that the trailer has dubstep? What does that have to do with anything?
Snookies12  +   730d ago
I'm not judging it off anything, I'm just saying I dislike dubstep.
N4g_null  +   730d ago
Wow gamers don't like dubstep? Wait what clubs do you guys go to? Hold on whew you guys don't represent everyone, which is great.
WiiUsauce  +   730d ago
Stop acting like a child. The game looks great. This coming from a SEga fan who owns Sonic 2 on every platform it's ever been released on.

Knuckles needs to lay off them steroids.
Blacklash93  +   730d ago
Interestingly, this isn't being made by Sonic Team and has been given to some Western developer (two, technically).

Honestly, this not being developed by Sonic Team is probably the most promising news for a Sonic game ever.

Brasi1989  +   730d ago
I honestly thought the same thing. I had my skepticism because of the redesign but Ill give this a chance seeing as its not made by Team Sonic.
Mystogan  +   730d ago
This looks pretty cool, I for one welcome the redesigns. Too bad there is no Windows or Xbox One version.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   730d ago
Despite my dislike of some of the redesign elements on the characters, the gameplay got me hyped.
I'm going to give this game my money if future trailers do more details on the kinds of gameplay we can expect.

For some reason, there were a few areas there that made the game feel slightly open-world, maybe even more-so than Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 were.

If that's the case, if it has open worlds with lots of exploration elements, it'll easily find its way into my collection.

I like the risks they're taking with this game.
More companies should take risks like this.

Blacklash93  +   730d ago
I'm starting to feel the same way. I'm not getting hyped for reasons the past should make obvious (plus the exploration and combat, and other new elements are total unknowns at this point), but I'll keep my eye on it. No Sonic Team gives me hope.

It does look good, visually. The animation quality shown in the trailer, in particular, is well above what Sonic Team has ever done.

Guy that made crash badicoot and from naughty is CEO of big red button. So I think this game will be fine
SMcNu715  +   730d ago
I don't know... Did we watch the same trailer??
Munnkyman  +   730d ago
Its hard when things change. Sometimes its good and sometimes its bad. Sonic games have not been that great for awhile. So why keep making the samething over and over. They need to try something different by changing the look and giving it to a different developer. So hopefully this new developer breaths new life into the sonic franchise
N4g_null  +   730d ago
Now that I think about it the redesign looks like a cross between crash and sonic... Yet the sony fans hate it.... wait I though crash was great? Never mind you guys where not going to buy a sonic game anyway. Let other people have there fun.

This is looking good.
Snookies12  +   730d ago
Why are you saying Sony fans hate it? Why would they have any more reason to hate it than Xbox or PC fans?

Lol, I do think the game looks like it could be fun though. I'm just cautious when it comes to new Sonic games.
N4g_null  +   729d ago
They are the only ones on this site lol.
GamersHeaven  +   730d ago
Looks terrible good thing it will flop.

eaise  +   730d ago
Just saw an article that confirmed there will be no online Coop. So while the campaign will be 2 players and other modes will be 4 players it will all have to be local Coop. Still looking forward to this game it looks amazing, and after awhile you get used to the new looks of the characters...except Knuckles because those arms do not go with those legs.
Kevlar009  +   730d ago
Sonic has been going up and down for the last ten+ years, I don't think this is really going to hurt the Sonic brand. Also I'm glad Sonic Team is taking a back seat, I haven't been thrilled with their work over the years. They've had critical success with Generations and Colors with some cool ideas across the years, but they are an average Dev.

The game is different because it's supposed to be different. If you've watched Sonic over the years then you should realize everything is fair game at this point
thecastroregime  +   730d ago
I like what this looks like so far. Obviously only time will tell, but it does look cool (whether it'll be functional and fun is yet to be seen).

It feels like they're taking a few notes out of Adventure 2: Battle for this.
Darkfist  +   730d ago
remember pac man and the ghostly adventures
JackieCruise69  +   730d ago
I'm actually growing to like how this game looks right now. It's too early to call is an abomination. If done right, this could be an awesome game. I look forward to seeing more.
Loadedklip  +   730d ago
Looks fantastic and the developer is ex Naughty Dog personnel who worked on all the Crash and Jax games published by Sony and including the first Uncharted ... I am excited.

"An ancient land"

because most land is brand new.

Leaving that nintendo exclusivity with a 'boom'.

Knuckles should be Sonic's size, with spiked fists :( what have they done to you Knuckles, character design am cry.

Everything else looks good & promising though.
mediate-this  +   730d ago
I personally think the game looks fine, i just dont like how knuckles looks so big.
TheOrion  +   730d ago
Given how much climbing Knuckles does it make sense to be more muscular but that just looks bizarre. I don't understand how after so many dire reboots they keep getting it wrong.

People have said over and over what works but they keep trying (and failing) to reinvent the wheel.
SoulSercher620  +   730d ago
I won't get too hyped about this. Remember Sonic Lost World? It looked good from the trailers and the game turned out horrible. Unless SEGA got huge changes in mind I expect the same to happen for this game.
