Sega has announced that the Wii and DS will be getting a new exclusive Sonic game by the end of 2010. Named “Sonic Colours” the story involves Dr. Robotnik imprisoning an alien race known as “wisps”.
The game will have Sonic facing “obstacles along an inspired sci-fi themed amusement park” as he saves the wisps from Dr. Robotnik’s iron fist. It sounds like the game play will be similar to many 3D Sonic games of the past with both 2D and 3D sections, collecting power ups and doing that 3D thing he usually does. The DS version will make use of the dual and touch screen functions.
No game play footage has been revealed yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see some soon with a planned release coming this Holiday season.
