A patch will be released for Sonic Lost World next month, SEGA has confirmed.

The update will be available around December 11. It’ll address a glitch found in Frozen Factory 3 (see above), among other issues.

After one player inquired about the casino stage’s glitch, SEGA Japan responded with the following:

Well, here’s another one for you. What we played: Wii Fit U, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Sonic: Lost World, Senran Kegura Burst!, and more. We also have listener mail and have an interesting discussion about the future of Mario…

Sonic Lost World’s debut sales in the US are in. For the month of October, the game sold under 30,000 copies. That figure combines sales of both versions – Wii U and 3DS.

Now, 30,000 copies isn’t a whole lot, but there is something important to keep in mind. Sonic Lost World launched in North America on October 29. NPD’s latest reporting period ended on November 2. This means Sonic’s debut sales account for a little less than a week of sales.

Despite a massive pile of listener mail this week, we manage to wrangle the podcast length down to 135 minutes compared to last week’s 180 minute unfinished monster. It’s also a really solid podcast! What we played: Call of Duty: Ghosts, Wii Fit U, Sonic: Lost World, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies. No discussion topic, but a LOT of listener mail rounds this out!

Sonic games tend not to sell well in Japan. And so it shouldn’t be shocking to see that the franchise’s latest entry, Sonic Lost World, has completely bombed in its first week. That doesn’t make the game’s performance any less disappointing, though.

Media Create’s latest data revealed that the 3DS version of Sonic Lost World sold 4,919 copies in its first few days of availability in Japan. The Wii U version, however, was nowhere to be seen.

Dengeki has come through with sales of its own courtesy of ASCII Media Works. Despite the fact that Sonic Lost World was the best-selling Wii U game in Japan last week, it managed to sell just 2,076 copies.
