See Some New Sonic Runners Screenshots

In case you missed it, Sonic Runners launched a little while ago in both Japan and Canada. Thanks to members of our own SSMB, many of us outside these regions have been able to get our hands on the game… including TSS Staff! As such, here’s a gallery of screenshots directly from the game itself, running on an iOS device.

If you’re wondering where Sonic Runners’ release is for the US and Europe regions, SEGA have stated that the game will be soft launched to work out bugs and see the game’s performance. Following this, a decision will be made if the game will be launched in these regions.

Sonic Runners is a new mobile game developed by the Sonic Team in Japan. We are soft-launching it in select countries to see how the game does and to work out any bugs.  No decision has been made yet whether it will be released in the US or Europe. It will depend on our observations during the soft-launch phase which could take several months.

Though it may take a while to reach us officially, you can view plenty of gameplay and media online while you wait, including our gallery you can catch below which we’ll keep updating. And don’t worry about the game’s quality itself – first impressions have been pretty positive from us here, and other users of the game so far.

New M&S 2014 Screenshots show off Miis and Dream Events

Now that we know Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games is finally coming out in November, hot on the heels of Sonic Lost World, we have a brand new set of screenshots to get us all excited. These screens show off quite a few new features of the game, including the return of Miis and some of the Dream Events.

Starting with the screenshot above, we can see that you can once again play as your Mii character and dress them up in whatever way you so choose – there’s regular outfits, hats, and full-blown character costumes to pick from. In terms of character costumes we can see that the game will include costumes of Vector, Birdo, Diddy Kong, Bee Mario, Propeller Mario, and Penguin Mario, and those are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg as this is only one page of 10 being shown. You’ll also be able to get a spooky pumpkin hat to scare your opponents. Will it cause the Pumpkin Hill music to play when you wear it though? That is the real question we all want answered, I’m sure!

mario_sonic_sochi-4This next screenshot shows off one of the new Dream Events in which characters play in teams of two, running around an area and shooting each other with snow. It sounds like a rather interesting concept, and at the very least it shows off some of the new graphical effects that the move to Wii U is bringing to the series.

And finally for now, we have this screenshot…

mario_sonic_sochi-10Oh god, I can imagine the fan-fiction already!

You can see all of the new screenshots in the gallery below. Thanks to SSMB member YoshiUnity for pointing them out in the forums!

New Sonic Lost World 3DS Screenshots Appear Online, New Wisps Revealed

Sonic Lost World 3DS Screenshots 22

Via Japanese magazine Famitsu, we have lots of new screenshots of the Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Lost World. In this latest batch we see the Red Burst Wisp returns and we also are introduced to two new Wisp powers Grey Quake and Ivory Lightning. The Grey Quake Wisp sees Sonic transform into an iron ball which you move around with the gyro sensor of the 3DS. According to a rough Google translation, you can infinitely climb walls in this state and dive off of them to destroy enemies with the shock on landing, thus the name Grey Quake.

The Ivory Lightning Wisp gives Sonic the power to quickly ram enemies and obstacles in succession. A rough Google translation says Sonic will also be able to pass through wires in this state.

The Red Burst Wisp gives Sonic the same powers as in Sonic Colours for Nintendo DS. In this form, Sonic can fly/hop around in the air and charge blasts of energy to destroy surrounding enemies.

Check out all of the new screenshots below in our gallery.
