Sonic Lost World demos finally arrive in the US

28020SONIC_LOST_WORLD_Wii_U_Screenshots_720p_1280x720_v1_4Sonic Lost World arrived on Nintendo systems in the US a couple of weeks ago but if you haven’t gotten around to picking it up yet and want to give it a try, then rejoice – you can finally go hands on with demos for both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions! (only a month after Japan, but let’s not be bitter…)

Both demos can now be downloaded from their respective eShop service and can be played a maximum of 10 times – more limited than a typical Nintendo demo, but considering the game is already out waiting for you to buy it, it should be enough to help make your mind up one way or the other.  The Wii U demo contains Windy Hill Zone 1 while the 3DS demo contains the Windy Hill Tutorial as well as Windy Hill Zone 1.

There’s no word on the demos appearing on the European eShop services at the time of writing.

Don’t forget you can also read our reviews of the Wii U version and 3DS version to help you decide if the game is for you.

Will you be downloading either of the demos for Sonic Lost World? Let us know in the comments!

  1. I’ll probably try the demo of the 3DS version as I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the portable version and wait for it to go on sale someday. I do own the WiiU version though.

  2. YESYESYESYESYESYES!! I wanted the demo for the Nintendo 3DS to come out SOOOO badly so I could see if the game may work well on my damaged 3DS before thinking of buying it. I’m so glad!! 😀

  3. FINALLY! This would have been useful WEEKS ago, but at least I can try out the 3DS version now. Thank you for notifying me. 😉

  4. I’m glad the comments are rejoicing over trying the 3DS drmos, because if you’re one of the few Wii U owners, and a Sonic fan… and you dont already own this game… What the hell are you?

    1. A smart person who doesn’t want to waste their money of a disappointing game since they’ve already seen the entirety of it more than 4 times? ¦D

  5. HOLY CRAP! Sonic Lost World for 3DS is AMAZING!!! Screw the frame rate, the awesome game play is where it’s at! 😀 I am definitely considering getting this for Christmas or earlier if I can’t help myself! 🙂
