Sonic Boom announced for Wii U and 3DS; TV program and Toys also in the works


Sega has announced a new Sonic franchise which will span games, a TV show and a line of toys.

Named Sonic Boom, the game will be released for Wii U and 3DS (not Xbox One and PS4 as previously thought it seems) and will also spawn a computer-animated TV series that will air on Cartoon Network in 52 11-minute slots. Apparently it will be a "totally different experience to previous Sonic games." Which when looking at the new trailer below seems fair to say.

The Wii U version of the game is in production at Big Red Button Entertainment, while Sanzaru Games are working on the 3DS version.

TOMY will release a line of toys based on the series.

As you can see above, Sonic Team is not working on the game and from what we've heard Sonic Boom won't even release in Japan. In this regard Sonic Team is currently at work on other unannounced titles, so it could be that we will see the blue hedgehog on other consoles at some point in the future.

Not overly keen on the art style, but it looks promising.

Meh don't like the look of Knuckles or that art style either, and i have my doubts about this game after the previous Sonic game. It seems Sonic has been on a complete downward slope ever since SEGA left the console industry the last really good Sonic games were Adventure 1 and 2 on the Dreamcast, ever since then all the other games have been mediocre except for Sonic: Generations and Colors. If it's good i might buy it.

Lost World was OK, could have been better but it was nowhere near as bad as 2006 or some of the others.

I said on the chat yesterday last night that I thought Knuckles looks stupid. I dont mind the look of the other characters though.

Love sonic
JoeToots 6 months ago
Knuckles looks really daft here indeed. But the art style is decent. Sonic games are fun depending on witch we are talking about, sonic:generations was really good but i also still prefer the dreamcast sonic games they are still my favourites.

Toots will all want sonic adventure 3
Akemi no Zero 6 months ago
The thing with sonic adventure 3 is even if they made it, it'll never live up to the standard of the other 2 because they're classics.

Odd question but has Knuckles Chaotix ever been put on xbox live, PSN or Nintendo?
Bindiana 6 months ago
That may be true toots but that does not mean the game wouldn't sell. It still would it be very fun & nice return to the franchise.

It has potential since it has some good names behind it and been in development for 2 years. Anyhoo I'm guessing it will be a Sonic Heroes type game

I'm hoping for co-op rather than switching between AI character.
Gloria 6 months ago
I think I'm one of the few who actually loved Sonic Heroes so I wouldn't mind another Sonic game of the same type
Loli-Nox-Tan 6 months ago
