Multiplayer, coop, new worlds and mechanics will be the appointment of this Sonic title with the classic recipe revisited.
SEGA has figured out how to honor its little blue hedgehog. It was on the occasion of the opening of the Summer Game Fest that the studio lifted the veil on Sonic Superstars, a new modern and nostalgic opus. After a Sonic Frontiers friendly but slowed down by its lackluster open-world, here comes an adventure with retro charm, carried by the power of today’s machines. It’s finally time to say goodbye to the too often reused pixel art (yes, we’re talking about you Sonic Origins). 2D and 3D now go hand in hand to deliver the best of both worlds, a style we haven’t seen since. Sonic Generations And Strengths.
With new three-dimensional models in a colorful graphic style, Sonic and his friends are getting a makeover that we expected more. Following the dull colors of Borders, this complexion suits the timeless mascot much better. The return to 2D movements and the physics of yesteryear will also make it possible to return to Sonic all the speed and the acrobatics that we know him. On this point, 3D has always failed him. In addition to this luxury facelift, this reinvention of the classic formula will benefit from significant additions.
The Ultimate Sonic Game
There is no question of bringing out the paths of the past, Sonic Superstars offers new levels with equally original mechanics. If we find Green Hill in appearance, Sonic can now go up waterfalls, run on the curved walls of the decor and even turn into a pixelated jellyfish (well, we don’t really know where that comes from). The best, however, is yet to come. Indeed, if this title already promises to be dynamic at will, it was not without counting on the different playable characters.
The blue hedgehog is obviously accompanied by his best friend Tailsof his rival Knuckles and his eternal love-interest Amy Rose. As in the previous titles of the saga, each of them will benefit from different speeds and capacities to vary the adventure and offer replayability. Moreover, Sonic Superstars will also be an opportunity to compete with friends. A cooperation mode will allow you to experience this adventure for up to 4 players, which promises to make it a party platformer worthy of the best Mario.
This promising chapter of the SEGA franchise will be coming to PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox Series and One, Nintendo Switch as well as PC starting this fall. The exact release date has unfortunately not yet been shared, but it will be soon.
