Not much has been said about Sonic Lost World. One piece of art slipped through the latest Nintendo Direct, and that was pretty much it.
But in a brief follow-up with the Associated Press, SEGA of America president John Cheng did confirm that the game will “introduce new gameplay and enemies”. Fans of the series can also expect Sonic’s “same friends” and “some new ones as well.”
“With ‘Sonic Lost World,’ we’re going to introduce new gameplay and enemies, which is always fun. In terms of Sonic and his friends, he’ll have his same friends there, and I think there’ll be some new ones as well. It’s not a reiteration. It’s going to be all new.”
Cheng added that, for Wii U, Nintendo’s deal with SEGA “should be a win-win situation,” adding that we shouldn’t “count Nintendo out.”
