Video Spotlight: There Was a Time When Sonic Boom Looked Quite Pretty

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric is a game we probably want to forget about at this point, but this demo reel from animator Tuan Nguyen shows the game’s environment looking considerably more fleshed-out. This footage comes from an earlier build of the game that featured more dense foliage. Check it out below:

If I was to hazard a guess as to why these details were paired back for the console release then I’d say it was because the Wii-U simply can’t handle it. It’s also worth noting that Rise of Lyric is the first Wii-U game powered by CryEngine 3 so Big Red Button were probably breaking a lot of new ground and learning as they went.

Sonic Boom Cartoon Airs in Europe Autumn 2015

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

In what has to be one of the most peculiar decisions regarding Sonic Boom, the CG animated series that ties in with the video games will air in Europe in Autumn 2015 despite the games based on the series being released in November of this year.

The Sonic Boom cartoon airs in North America and France later this year which ties in nicely to the releases of the Sonic Boom video games which act as prequels to the series. The closer release windows for both the series and games in these territories are obviously designed to compliment each other and boost sales of the game as well as interest in the show.

So how does SEGA Europe intend on promoting the Sonic Boom games in the rest of Europe now the cartoon as fallen to late next year? Only time will tell but we’d bet some serious cash that the games are not going to sell as well in this territory when compared to France and North America unless SEGA Europe are willing to put some money into a big marketing campaign.

Sonic Boom Now Has a Subtitles and the 3DS Version Will Have an Increased Focus on Platforming

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

UPDATE

The Wii U version of Sonic Boom also has a subtitle and it is Rise of Lyric.

ORIGINAL STORY

The 3DS version of Sonic Boom will be called Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal and will have a much larger focus on platforming. This is at a juxtaposition with the Wii U version which focuses more on action and exploration.

Another interesting confirmation is that Sticks the Jungle Badger is actually playable and not just a non-playable character stuck in the game to flesh out the story. You can see a screenshot of her in action in the above screenshot.
