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.
