Review: Sonic Boom Fire & Ice

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

fireice01

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice’s existence is a strange one. A sequel to 2014’s Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, the 3DS game was delayed an entire year to be a game that, “fans will continue to play for years after they pick up the game” and an overall, “stronger, more enjoyable experience”. It was a bold move by SEGA who have come under criticism for the way they have taken the Sonic franchise in new directions with the previously released and poorly received Sonic Boom games.

Video Spotlight: It’s the First Sonic Boom Fire & Ice Trailer Since the Delay!

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

E3 is right around the corner and now we’ve got a brand new E3 trailer of Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice for the 3DS. This is the first look at the game since it was delayed for a year to give it, “the time and polish needed”. Has the delay been worth it? You be the judge:

That definitely looks like a sequel to Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal to me.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice launches on 3DS in September this year. Those lucky Americans can also pre-order a special edition which comes with a bonus DVD that contains some select episodes of the TV show.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice to Launch on September 27th

Monday, March 21st, 2016

sonicboomfire

It’s been a long time since we heard anything about the delayed follow-up to Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, but Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice finally has a new release date of September 27th.

The game was previously delayed because SEGA America wanted to make a game that “fans will continue to play for years after they pick up the game”. SEGA also promised it would “be a stronger, more enjoyable experience” thanks to the extended development period.

There is no new footage or screens to show at the moment, but you can guarantee we’ll be sharing any the moment they drop.

Sonic Dash 2 Releasing on iOS & Android Platforms ‘Soon’

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

sonicdash2

Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom will be launching on iOS and Android ‘soon’.

The game was previously soft-launched on Android devices in certain countries in a similar way to Sonic Runners, but now the game is ready for its full launch.

As the sequel to Sonic Dash, the game features similar endless running gameplay to the original but with new gimmicks such as using the enerbeam to lock onto sky-rails. The game also takes its visual cues from the Sonic Boom animated series.

Sonic Boom Fire & Ice Release Delayed Until 2016

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

sonicboomfire

In what has to be a first for the Sonic franchise, Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice will be delayed until 2016 so the game can be improved and fine-polished. There is currently no exact release date in 2016 other than, “it’ll be ready when it’s ready”.

The Sonic franchise is not well known for delays and generally when a release date is set for a game then it gets delivered in whatever state it’s in at the time. This has resulted in some pretty lackluster efforts like Sonic the Hedgehog ’06 and even last year’s Sonic Boom games Rise of Lyric and Shattered Crystal.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice was due to release on 3DS in quarter four this year and this delay marks one of the few occasions I feel a delay can really benefit a game. The Sonic franchise deserves more great entries and rush-releasing games has never been good practice for the blue blur. Fingers crossed Fire & Ice turns into a worthy entry in the franchise whenever it is that we next see it.
