GameStop Lists Sonic Generations 3DS

Sonic Generations as of right now is only coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Considering the franchises’ history, it was a bit odd to see Nintendo’s platforms missing out on the action. But a recent GameStop listing suggests that the title might be heading to Nintendo’s latest handheld, the Nintendo 3DS.

 

It seems a little odd that SEGA wouldn’t have announced it yet, but maybe it will show up at E3. If this listing isn’t a mistake of course.

Sonic Generations Gameplay Footage

Ever wonder what Sonic Generations looks like when it’s super blurry? Hit the jump and find out! Yeah, the video isn’t that great of quality, but we do get a  good look at the first level of the game. We see it both from classic Sonic’s perspective, who plays the level entirely in 2D, and modern Sonic’s perspective, which focuses on 3D gameplay with some light 2D elements.

 

Classic Sonic’s seems to be a strict remake of the level, where modern Sonic takes a lot more liberties, like an entire underground rail segment while being chased by a giant robot fish.  Modern Sonic also seems to be have a ridiculous amount of boost energy, as it is used almost the entire play-through.

Rumor: Sonic Colors Details

These Sonic Colors details supposedly come from the latest issue of Nintendo Power.

First up, there are going to be a wide variety of zones that may have seemed a bit out of place in other Sonic games. For example, Sweet Mountain is a mountain of pastries Sonic races through. Other rumored zones include a tropical reservoir zone, and another zone with giant hamburgers and bouncy jello.

As for gameplay, the Wii version is going to be similar to the daytime levels of Sonic Unleashed where players switch between 3D and 2D gameplay. 3D gameplay focuses more on speed and getting from A to B, while 2D is more focuses more on platforming.

The DS version is rumored to be incredibly similar to the Sonic Rush series – even including the tension gauge.

Apparently the story of the game is ment to be very lighthearted. As for side characters, players can expect to see Tails, as we saw via the trailer, but not in playable form. It also seems there is a possibility Knuckles and/or Shadow may appear in some form.

All of these details are unconfirmed. but if you pick up the latest Nintendo Power, you may, or may not, see this information in there.

Sonic Colors is planned for a Holiday 2010 release on both DS and Wii.
