This morning, Sega announced Sonic Boom for the Wii U and 3DS. Sega has described it as “a new branch of the Sonic universe” which includes the aforementioned game, a CG-animated TV series, as well as a range of toys.
The first thing you will notice is that the characters have received an “interesting” make-over. Sonic’s legs are longer, Tales has a utility belt, and Knuckles looks as if he’s been pumping some serious steroids at the gym.
Sega has confirmed that the game will still feature traditional Sonic elements such as speed, exploration, combat and tethering. However, for the first time, the game will also be focused on 4-player cooperative play.
