As E3 continues through the week, more and more gameplay is coming forward from our two upcoming Sonic titles this year. Most notably, Gamespot decided to showcase Rise of Lyric (Wii U) in their livestream for an extended period and now are uploading the footage to their YouTube in HD glory with full audio. How nice of them! A total of three videos have been released so far for your viewing pleasure.
Most of these videos contains areas we’ve seen the team explore previously – however what we do get to see (and hear) in these videos are two of the cutscenes. It gives us a nice look at how the dynamic of the team is, and how they’re being characterised. There aren’t that many story hints but it’s always nice to see Sonic and Knuckles have their little banter. Amy Rose has gone through one of the biggest transformations in terms of character, having a confident approach to situations and is seemingly no longer fawning for Sonic’s love and attention. You go girl!
You can also sample some of the voice acting in the game. The whole cast is sounding a little better to me with seemingly better direction for all four voice actors. This goes especially for Amy who has dropped the infamous “Minnie Mouse” tone we heard in Sonic Lost World. That’s enough of what I think though – how about you? Let us know in the comments. Stay with TSS for the remainder of E3 so you don’t miss any news regarding our spiky blue hero. Also – did you see the new TV trailer yet? Because that’s looking pretty fantastic too amid all this gaming news.
