Sonic Boom Trailer (Nintendo Wii U and 3DS)


In more Sonic related news, we just come across a new trailer for the flagship game of the Sonic Boom relaunch. We get to see the whole Sonic team in this action/adventure title, which seems to take a few cues from Sonic Heroes. As of right now, the game is stated to be released on the WiiU and 3DS. No word on if it will be released on other consoles.

Sonic Speeds His Way into Super Smash Bros for the 3DS/Wii U


During the October 2013 Nintendo Direct, we got confirmation that Sonic will be returning to partake in some sibling fisticuffing action. Above you can see the announcement trailer. If you look closely at the 0:26 second mark, you can get a sneak peak at the Sonic Lost Worlds stage.

Now that we got Mario, Sonic, and Megaman all in the same game, you think there’ll be a chance of the new Smash Bros getting Pac-man, so the game can have arguably the 4 biggest video game characters of the 2D era?
