Sonic Colours: Rise of the Wisps – Part 2 Released | Video Spotlight

Thursday, August 26th, 2021

The second part of the Sonic Colours Ultimate promotional animation, Sonic Colours: Rise of the Wisps, has been released via YouTube.

Via SEGA PR:

In today’s climactic episode, temperatures rise as Sonic and the Jade Wisp clash with Dr. Eggman’s robotic henchman and the Blue Blur’s evil doppelganger, Metal Sonic. The duo must attempt to save the Wisps from  Dr. Eggman’s clutches before he harnesses their power for his own diabolical plans. It’s a race against time as Sonic and Jade fight to thwart Dr. Eggman’s plans to take over the universe.

It’s a fun watch, with some lovely voice work from Roger Craig Smith and Kate Higgins on show too.

Sonic Colours Ultimate will be launching September 9th, for Xbox, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Epic Games.

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania Adds Persona 5’s Morgana As A DLC Character

Wednesday, August 25th, 2021

As part of Gamescom 2021’s Opening Night Live presentation, it’s been announced that Morgana from Persona 5 will be a DLC character in Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania. He’ll cost $4.99 USD on release.

Banana Mania is quickly and somewhat unexpectedly becoming a big ol’ SEGA crossover, with Jet Set Radio’s Beat, Yakuza’s Kiryu, and Sonic & Tails previously being announced. This new reveal adds Atlus into the mix, too!

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania launches on October 1st.

Sonic Colours: Rise of the Wisps – Part 1 Now Available | Video Spotlight

Thursday, August 19th, 2021

The first part of the Sonic Colours animated short ‘Rise of the Wisps’ is now available.

Via SEGA PR:

In today’s episode, Sonic and Tails are joined by a lone Jade Wisp, who narrowly escapes the deceptively charming Sweet Mountain ride at Dr. Eggman’s Incredible Interstellar Amusement Park. Together, Sonic, Tails and their new companion, must band together to uncover Dr. Eggman’s evil plot to harness the Wisps’ powers and take over the universe.

The short was directed by Tyson Hesse, though notably it was also co-written by GGDG (Cucumber Quest). We’ll keep our eyes open for the next part, hopefully coming soon.

Sonic Colours Ultimate will be launching September 9th, for Xbox, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Epic Games.

Kazuma Kiryu Joins Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania as Unlockable Character | Video Spotlight

Wednesday, August 18th, 2021

Kazuma Kiryu of the Yakuza series will be rolling into the upcoming Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania. Yes, really!

Hot on the heels of Jet Set Radio’s Beat being added, the Smilebit/RGG Studio/AmusementVision love continues with RGG Studio’s main man himself joining the game. And when playing as him, the bananas are even replaced by Staminan X pickups! It’s a very amusing crossover, but feels suitable given who’s behind the remakes.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania will launch on October 5th. In addition to Kiryu and Beat, Sonic & Tails were also recently confirmed to be unlockable in the game.

Video Spotlight | Sonic Colours Gets “HD Upgrades Spotlight”, Showing New Modes and Features

Thursday, July 8th, 2021

A new trailer has been released for Sonic Colours Ultimate, the upcoming remaster of 2010’s Wii entry in the blue hedgehog’s 3D exploits. It focuses on what new features Ultimate will bring to the table over the original game, and there’s actually a hefty amount on show.

First up is the obvious graphical changes; the lighting is redone, the resolution is boosted to up to 4K, and the game now runs at 60 frames per second instead of the original release’s 30. Also shown off for the first time is Rival Rush mode, in which you face Metal Sonic in a race to the finish.

The ‘Park Tokens’ we’ve been seeing in various screenshots are elaborated on here too. They can be used to buy new cosmetics to change up Sonic’s look a tad, with auras, different boost effects, and new glove and shoe accessories. In addition, we’ve gotten our first look at how Team Sonic Racing’s Jade Ghost Wisp has been implemented; it’ll let you pass through walls at certain points of a stage, offering new shortcuts. You can also customise the control layout for the game; helpful as the original Classic Controller layout for Colours might not be to everyone’s taste.

Tails Save is also shown off, though it had been shown in other media prior. Essentially as long as you have a Tails Token handy, the two-tailed fox will scoop you out of a pit with no penalty should you fall down one. 100-Count Rings are the final new tidbit shown, and give Sonic a brief burst of the classic invincibility sparkles when collected.

In terms of hearing, there is one more thing. As previously noted, the soundtrack will be fully remixed. It’s not known yet if an option to use the original music is included.

On the whole, it’s quite a slew of new features; and it seems there may be more to come, given this is only Spotlight #1. Sonic Colours: Ultimate releases September 7th for Xbox, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
