Ahead of Sonic Lost World’s release, Nintendo Life have sat down with the one and only Takashi Iizuka to talk exclusivity, hardware limitations and the current reputation of the franchise among other interesting morsels for you to get your hedgehog-hungry teeth into!
You can read the full interview over at Nintendo Life (which I would highly recommend), but here’s a small extract!
NL: What’s the most important message about Sonic Lost World that you want to share with Wii U and/or 3DS gamers?
Takashi Iizuka: I feel that after buying the Wii U console, there may be certain amount of consumers whom didn’t have the chance to fully enjoy this great console yet. Sonic Lost World contains the feature and the convenience of GamePad, new enjoyment and potential using Miiverse, which allows this title to let player fully enjoy Wii U.
Not just for Sonic fan, but it is a title that has the volume and gameplay which all platform action fans would enjoy, so for players who already have Wii U, please try and enjoy this game. And please brag that you played this Wii U version.
With the 3DS, If you want to play a 3D action game, this is what I really recommend. Not just the 3D action but great cut scenes and plenty of volume, I feel this title is a “must buy” title for 3DS user.
Please enjoy this Sonic Lost World, the strange world made in 3D.
Sonic Lost World is released October 18 in Europe, October 19 in Australia, October 24 in Japan and October 29 in the US on both Wii U and 3DS. Excited? Let us know which version you’ll be picking up in the comments!
