The DS demo of Sonic Colors has hit the north american Nintendo Channel on the Wii, featuring the first act from Tropical Resort.
Upon immediate play it's obvious that this is effectively just Sonic Rush 3, but it has a lot more going for it.
New abilities include mid-air boosting, sliding, wall jumping and Wisp power-ups



The demo is also available on the EU Nintendo Channel, since Halloween.[/p]

My personal opinion of it is that it's better than Sonic 4 to say the least, I want to give it a proper go later than just on an emulator.

Boo!
It was already released on your nintendo channel last... friday I believe!

And yes, the demo rom is out and about if you look for it.

Regarding the game itself, while it is basically a sonic rush 3 I did find enjoyment from it. The act can be played at least twice with two distinct ways through the level. You can also play the entire act without using the Boost if you don't want to use it. I will likely be doing that or using it sparingly for the final game as boost is just boring to me.

Yeah, I'm surprised I missed that myself, coming out in the EU on Friday.
I'll append that to the news post.

Yeah, I didn't know the demo got released.

Gonna search for it and try it out, though from what I saw, looks better than rush (which I enjoyed).

Oh, DS? Don't care.
I will still be playing it though when it comes out, since I did like Sonic Rush but I won't be buying it.
Sonic Colours Wii on the other hand...

Oh cool, it's Sonic Rush.

Also, they spelled "Colors" wrong in that screenshot.

Lol. Actually it makes a change having something localised into UK english that isn't FOSS (it's about the only thing that really pisses me off with Windows 7). I know that US spellings are technically "correct alternatives" in UK english and vice versa, but it's nice seeing the little bit of effort put in.

You left out the only part of my post that mattered.

Just thought I'd put a stop to it before people start to get progressively more upset.

But what if the viewer is Canadian? In that case, it's correct.
