News: Sonic vs Aliens. OK, not really, but this platformer is close enough.



It looks like Sonic the Hedgehog 4 won't be the only game released this year starring Sega's blue blur as the publisher announced Sonic Colors today. Coming to the DS and Wii this Fall, Sonic Colors transports the hedgehog to an alien amusement park run by Dr. Eggman.

Sonic Colors will use a combination of 2D and 3D gameplay perspectives on the Wii while the DS version will make use of both screens in a side-scrolling adventure similar to the Sonic Rush series. The game also introduces a colorful alien race, the Wisps, to the franchise. Collecting Wisps will enable Sonic to use a variety of superpowers as he attempts to stop Eggman's latest diabolical scheme:

Sonic Colors sees Sonic accelerating to adrenaline-pumping super speeds and blasting through obstacles in ways never before seen in a Sonic game. The alien Wisps featured in the game each have a unique ?Color Power? that, once freed, Sonic is able to absorb while speeding through the various theme park inspired planets. The Wisp energy enables Sonic to create new paths through the stages by drilling through the ground (Yellow Drill) for example, or speeding through the stage as a laser (Cyan Laser). Stringing the Wisp power-ups together creates a combo that increases Sonic's boost gauge even more quickly. Exclusive Wisp power-ups will be available for both Wii and the Nintendo DS versions, ensuring a unique and super speedy gameplay experience for Sonic fans everywhere.


Sega has also released a short teaser trailer that'll have you feeling colorful all day:
