So E3 is over, everyone’s packed up and gone home and sorted through their swag and figured out what to sell for exuberant prices on eBay. But in the explosion that was City Escape on the console version of Sonic Generations, as well as the fangasm that was Sonic Boom, it was easy to look over the other version of Generations coming our way, the version exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS. Luckily, gaming site Nintendo World Report recorded the entire experience, including a direct feed of the audio. So if you’re curious to see how the Green Hill Zone sounds in the palm of your hand, then don’t stop yourself. Watch the video below:
It isn’t hard to tell that the “Act 1” demo is pretty much exactly how Act 1 in the original Sonic the Hedgehog was, but with a new coat of paint. And while NWR’s own report says the controls try to stay faithful, others have gone on record saying it feels more like Sonic 4 than Sonic 1. Regardless, the Modern Sonic demo available does what was promised, recreating the Sonic Rush experience with boosts and dashpads galore.
The demo also contained one of the bosses from the game, which had been previously revealed in Nintendo Power – a recreation of the final boss from Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Purists may shout that the music is wrong, but really…the Doomsday Zone music was always awesome.
Also, if you can’t resist, Sega has put up clear screens of the demo on their official website for Generations. Yes indeed, the hype train is in full gear! Hopefully it won’t end up chasing us and cause us to run into a wall…or fall into a bottomless pit.
