    At E3, Sonic Generations made its presence not only for the big HD consoles, but also for the Nintendo 3DS as well. The 3DS game however is a notably different experience, with unique levels and level design. The focus has changed from a sidescrolling and 3D hybrid, to a purely sidescrolling experience. The game still features both classic Sonic AND modern Sonic gameplay, but both characters will be restricted to a sidescrolling view. Sonic Generations 3DS appears to share in common more with Sonic Rush than anything, judging from the modern Sonic gameplay. The first video of its gameplay has been shown, which you can see above. It will contain jumps from the foreground and background to better utilize the 3D effect. The only level shared between the 3DS and HD versions is Green Hill Zone (which still has a different design), the 3DS version will have its own exclusive classic levels. The 3DS version is being developed by Dimps and will release alongside the HD brothers of the game later this year. No specific date has been set. [/p]

    It looks fun but I really wish they implemented the full behind sonic game play like the home consoles. The 3DS has the capability to do so and the 3D effect would stand out more in my opinion. I just feel as if they forgot the whole point of the game was to implement old school and modern day Sonic.

    No 3D Sections at all? I mean....that kind of defeats the purpose of having 2 sonics

    Not really impressed by the gameplay at all. I guess I'll just stick with the console version then.

    I'm really disapointed because this was one of the main reasons I got a 3ds.
    If this game comes to the NGP(PSV, PSP2) then I will buy a NGP too.

    Disappointing. Really disappointing. Well atleast I'll save some money [​IMG]

    I know judging from initial stages is stupid but restricting the game to 2D only just removes the fun element of Sonic Generations. So I'm out xD

    Not exactly what I imagined.
    I'll wait to see if this game can give us more.

    Inserted a different video, fixed. [​IMG]

    And for a bonus, here's more extensive footage. Less clear but has classic Sonic gameplay and boss battle-

    It doesn't look bad, but not exactly brilliant either. I don't think that I'm going to get this, though.

    Thanks!

    I actually like it.

    I mean, of course I would prefer a behind Sonic camera but leaving the console versions shadow aside, it doesn't look like it's gonna be a bad game.

    I haven't liked almost all of the new sonic games but this one looks promising

    For a game that boasts a Classic Sonic, the Ideal Sonic is definitely prominent here.
    I wonder if this would be great for the Nintendo Cafe? (The bottom screen reminded me of the VMU...)
