    The world that never was
    [​IMG]
    Nintendo just announced a new Sonic game exclusively for the Wii U subtitled Lost World as one of their partnership deals, but it doesn't only stop there but the deal includes the three next Sonic titles. Those titles are yet to be announced, so Olympic games spin-off is not one of them. The details of the three new games will be revealed in the few coming weeks, so stay tuned.

    EDIT: Looks like we were wrong, Sega confirmed that Lost World and Sochi Winter games are two of the three titles. The third is yet to be announced.

    Not a system seller but a nice game nonetheless, if it turns out to be like Generations or Colors that is.

    I like to think of it this way....

    No one wanted Bayonetta. No one wants Sonic.

    Nintendo is the saving grace for both of them considering Nintendo is the only game company that cares about Video Games rather than trying to please the "Hardcore" gamers. I have a feeling Nintendo is going to want more games like Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations under their belt since both those games are amazing compared to the others that came out within the last 10 years.

    As long as furries exist, sonic games will sell.
    Just add new characters and everyone is pleased.

    If the new games will be like Colours (never played Generations), that'd be awesome. If they will suck again, no thanks. Can go either way, really.

    Maybe, back a few years ago, when everything in my world was Sonic, this would have been a system seller for me. I'm happy though, Nintendo + Sonic usually means good stuff. (Colors)

    But... the Wii U haz noe sails.
    All jokes aside, I'm happy to hear that there will be new sonic games, but why Nintendo exclusive? Especially when the PC version of Generations did so well. Well, at least I can haz the 3DS ones.

    Alright, Nintendo, securing exclusives is a nice first step. Just maybe try to get good exclusives next time.

    It sound like to me it was just a timed exclusive and not a console exclusive.

    Adding new characters to the series all the time has been one of the major gripes the entire Sonic community had with SEGA and Sonic Team, I'll have you know.

    God I hope its like the other sonic games. I liked sonic unleashed, not much of a fan of sonic generations though it was still good and colors was too slow.

    I'm actually hoping for a Sonic & All stars racing sequel. That game wasn't just good...it was freakin' awesome.


    But assuming it's about the platforming (or 3D platforming)...I don't think it's a bad strategy. There were some bad Sonic games, but the later ones weren't bad at all. And it's not like Mario didn't have a spotless history (Mario is missing, anyone?). And the decision clearly plays into the market nintendo is aiming for. No, it's not the hardcore gamers. But that doesn't make nostalgics and the youth less gamers.

    Has anyone heard about the rumors for the Mario Kart/Sonic All Stars crossover game? I'm excited for THAT.
