    This month's Nintendo Power has the first look at the newly announced Sonic game for DS and Wii- Sonic Colors. It lives up to its name for sure, being very quirky and colorful. Have a look-

    It was rumored last week that the Storybook team that made Secret Rings and Black Knight is working on the Wii version. Looks to be the case. And Dimps (Sonic Rush) is rumored to be working on the DS version. Makes sense if that's true. It looks just like Sonic Rush 3 in fact. Even has the Rush gauge it looks like. Looks like the Wii version plays similarly to the day stages in Sonic Unleashed. At any rate, there you go. It has been confirmed to be playable at E3, so we'll get some better screens and video then.

    As for the source, i'd give it, but these screens were posted at a popular Sonic hacking site. They host copyrighted commercial roms, so it's not something i can link to without suffering dire consequences. Hope these screens are enough proof. I take full responsibility for not having a source and other mods can deleted this topic if they deem it inappropriate without a source.

    So basically, Sega are finally making two Sonic games from the best bits of their recent, most successful outings?
    Daytime Sonic Unleashed, and Sonic Rush 3? The fans may finally be pleased!

    That looks quite better than I had imagined. Can't wait to see it in motion.

    That'd be like asking Nintendo to drop Mario, or rather, to drop dead.

    well they keep attempting to please their Sonic fans and failing where as Nintendo keeps succeeding with Mario so they would have no need to ever drop him...Sega has plenty of other great series that they ignore completely to focus on making horrible Sonic games...other then the classic Sonic games there's what like 3 or 4 Sonic games in the past 15 or so years that are good? that means that well over half of the games are terrible.

    Sega just needs to concentrate on what we like instead of trying to push no things on us. We like the classic sonics and we liked sonic adventures.....Sonic Heroes was a good idea and even Shadow the hedgehog was pretty good...after that.....Just stick to what we like and when its time try something new.

    SEGA will continue to produce the same old stuff as long as stupid people continue to buy their crap. They listen to sales, not words. If their games don't sell, a company will either fix what is causing the sale loss, or they will simply die out.

    I was hoping it would look good, but in my opinion, it looks like another side-scrolling game where you can just run through the levels without really doing anything. I like the Sonic Adventure games, because it's more than that. You actually have to do things besides running through a linear level.

    Yeah, I know the first Sonic games were linear, but they need to do something different with the series instead of making linear games (I say linear a lot because that's what it is).

    I want a good adventure game (Not the recent 3D Sonic platformer crap), I want to do missions and be able to run around trying to find things, not speeding through a side-scrolling level hoping I don't run into an enemy. I want to be able to control what direction Sonic goes in, not just moving him left and right and making him jump when he needs to (I'm referring to the newer 3D games like Secret Rings and such).

    True...meaning we as fans will have to realize this and stop buying the crap. Rent it and if its good go buy it.....if not, then screw it.

    The DS version should be very good. It's by the developers of Sonic Advance 1, 2 and 3, Sonic Rush, Sonic Rush Adventure and the upcoming Sonic 4. They also made the daytime stages from Sonic Unleashed.

    The Wii version, on the other hand, is developed by the people behind Sonic and the Black Knight, the single worst Sonic game to date. I'm very skeptical about that game. Still, The Black Knight had potential (the graphics, for example, were really good), so they might actually make a good game.

    tl;dr: the DS version will rock, the Wii version might.

    It's worth mentioning that Dimp's games have been getting progressively worse though.
    Sonic Rush wasn't quite as good as Sonic Advance 3, then Sonic Rush Adventure was not quite as good as Sonic Rush...and Sonic 4 looks to be absolutely terrible, to say the least.

    Personally, the most enjoyment I got from Sonic games came from the chao garden. Perhaps we'll see a reincarnation of it in these games much like how you could interact with the Sonic Adventure series via your GBA.

    I disagree. Sonic Rush was different but still very good and stage-wise i think SRA was even a little better then the original SR (even though both were great games).

    And one shouldn`t forget, that Sonic Team did the daytime-stages for Sonic Unleashed on PS360, which were pretty good... If they concentrate just on Sonic these two games have potential.

    But normally I have the same expectation as Maikel Steneker: the DS version, if it is anything like SR(A) will be very good and the Wii-version might be good, if they take the daytime-stages of Unleashed and concentrate just one them.

    Wow that actually looks like fun, unlike all the other "modern" Sonic titles. I love the donut scene.. maybe just because it's the clearest of the screenshots.. But it looks great.

    I guess these are all screens from the Wii version? Only the fifth pic with those jelly pudding things in various colors and the 8th pic might be from the DS.

    DS Version :
    Looks like sonic rush, but one thing is that we don't know if it'll have the boost (if it has attacks/Special moves instead of it like Sonic Advance, GOOD)

    Wii Version :
    Looks like Sonic Unleashed Day time stages, Awesome! just add more spin dash [​IMG]


    but most of all, i'm hoping for more playable characters, as in knuckles and tails, and not blaze (which has very little difference to sonic's gameplay, which is stupid)

    I've been a Sonic fan since the very beginning and I'm pretty sure I've played every Sonic game in existance. I was shaken to my very core when I played Sonic 2006. It made me lose my faith in humanity. Then Sonic Unleashes came along and the day stages were awesome, the night stages were OK but simply don't belong in a Sonic game. Neither were a match for the sheer brilliance of the originals. Ironicly the handheld selection seems to have gone the opposite way. They started off mostly crap with stuff like Sonic Labyrinth and the like, then the GBA came along and saved us all. But I've just about had it with Sonic's fall from grace. A fall that's taken him from the peak of excellence into a face-dive straight into a big steamy pile of shit. This is the last time I'm gonna put my childhood memories on the line, Sega. Fuck it up this time and you'll have convinced the mst die-hard Sonic fan (who actually finished Sonic 2006 simply to maintain his record) that he's officially dead. Then I shall have to kill you. /rant

    TLDR: Sega, so help me God if you fuck this up I will come to your office and go Wolvie-Berzerk style on yo' asses.
