We’re excited to announce details of the next Sonic the Hedgehog game! Sonic Lost World will be published on Nintendo platforms as part of the exclusive partnership recently announced between the two companies. Sonic Lost World puts Sonic up to the challenge as he faces his most powerful enemy to date – and this time there are six of them to conquer! Sonic Lost World will be available exclusively for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS platforms later this year.
A trademark for the title Sonic Lost World was filed by Sega in May 2013, and pointed out by website Siliconera on May 15, 2013. The game was first revealed on May 17, 2013 in a Nintendo Direct announcement, as part of an exclusive partnership between Sega and Nintendo for the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is one of three games in this partnership, the other ones being the fourth entry to the Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games series, and Sonic Boom, a game based on the animated series of the same name. Sega reported that more on the game would be revealed before the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2013 convention, and that the game will contain both returning and new original characters, both in enemies and friends of Sonic. On May 23, 2013, Sega posted a teaser, showing silhouette images of the Deadly Six, and stating that more would be revealed on May 29. The first trailer for the game was released on May 28, a day earlier than previously announced.

Seven returning characters from previous Sonic titles star in Sonic Lost World; The protagonist, Sonic the Hedgehog is a hedgehog who must defeat the main antagonist Doctor Eggman and stop the Deadly Six. Aiding him in his quest is Miles "Tails" Prower, Sonic's fox friend who has the ability to fly. Knuckles the Echidna, Sonic's echidna friend, and Amy Rose, his pink hedgehog girlfriend, also make relatively minor appearances.
Sonic Lost World's gameplay is some what like . Sonic now has two separate speeds so that the player can have more control. Sonic can still run but now he can now also walk. There are now three different levels formats. There are the 2D only levels. The 3D only levels and the levels that switch between 3D and 2D. There are nine different worlds that you can choose to play on. The wisps from return in this game. In the Wii U version the way you use shields is by taping the briefcase icon and then choosing the shield or power up you want to use. The 3DS version does this a little differently by having you find the shields/power ups through out the level. There is a new ability that Sonic can use, that ability is the parkour. The parkour allows Sonic to run on walls, trees etc. There is a World Map where you go choose which levels to go to. Circus are in this game, the way they work is you get a certain amount of and then play the minigame in the circus. Once you get the all of the Chaos Emeralds you can turn into Super Sonic. Super Sonic can perform a boost. Sonic also can perform the kick move. The kick move can take out enemies faster then homing would.
