Someone flipped the switch a little too soon again.
Some users are reporting quite a few new shots of Sonic Generations appearing on Xbox Live that probably shouldn’t have gone live yet. Yet others are reporting seeing the usual shots of Green Hill Zone. Either way, you all win. Aside from the above of Modern Sonic death racing Shadow on an unknown stage–the ARK?–echoing Classic Sonic death racing Metal Sonic, we also get to see the Death Egg Robot fight Classic Sonic will take part in, showing a newer spin on the boss.
Planet Wisp is also shown, looking just a tad crisper than how it appeared in last year’s Wii title Sonic Colours and a shot of Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic interacting in the timeless “mirrored reflection” pantomime.
could that really be the ark their fighting on? D: THE MOON ISNT BROKEN lol…. or it could be faceing the other way or thats not the moon at all.
That doesn’t look like the moon to me. It’s just rock fragments.
Those are most probably the meteors from the original stage.
ya I guess that sounds right but man it does look like the moon all yellow and sphere like but idk
That race with Shadow, it’s perfect. All of this is just perfect.
the party picture fake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Or maybe they just didn’t fix the lighting. SEGA themselves confirmed that the game starts out with a party like that
That’s quite the elaborate fake, then.
YES! Shadow’s fight IS the final fight in Heroes’ Story!
The Ark looks sweet and I like that they gave Shadow a boost too.
Sega, you have officially given me hope
this is the true picture of picnic,the other is old
Thanks for bringing it up. I accidentally put up the wrong one. This is why you keep clean photo folders! lol. Fixed it now.
Just as I truly imagined it! The final fight between sonic and shadow boost version epic WIN
anyone else notice shadow is in a flying posture with his feet not touching the ground
Like Super Sonic?
It’s all amazing. I can’t wait to fight a decent character boss after that Silver boss from Sonic 06. Planet Wisp also looks much more vibrant on the Xbox 360 version it seems, great level choice though. I also expect a SPIKES! or ROCKET! cameo. lol. I still think the Shadow boss will be a cool one 🙂
X-Box 360 version? Are there screenshots of the x-box and ps3 versions of the stage? Or did you think that Colours was for X-Box 😛
I just wondering which sections of Planet Wisp are used for which Sonic.
I think it’s safe to say Modern Sonic gets the first level of PW. Which one will Classic Sonic get though?
Actually, you’re getting both. ;P
Now are they making the stages just boss fights or will it be an actual fucking stage.
I hope so.
That stage kicked ass in the Dreamcast era
This has made me even more impatient for the release of this game! Also, I wish they’d add more Colors stages into Generations. Hell, Sweet Mountain in HD or Starlight Carnival?! Oh, the possibilities. Hell, I’m not complaining. This game is going to be gorgeous.
I’d rather have Sweet Mountain than Starlight Carnival or Planet Wisp personally but it still looks amazing.
I’D personally have Aquarium Park, but I guess Seaside Hill already counts as the game’s water level.
Hidden palace for personal reasons.
That and the freaking egg rocket level in sonic advance
Shadow has the same gameplay as Sonic???!!! And why is there platforming in Sonic 2final? Is that a cutscene
The Giant Mecha of Sonic 2 (thanks again TV Tropes) got BIGGER. And probably has a different weak spot now.
Am I the only one who finds it interesting that shadow’s boosting like sonic? Yet another reason why other characters should be playable.
I ain’t paying for dlc unless its for halo
I’ll agree on that one. I’d love Modern versions of 2P mode, with Shadow being able to boost. I mean in Sonic Adventure 2 style – Modern Sonic and Shadow race through the Modern stages. Or Classic and Modern Sonic race through special versions of each stage made specially for 2P mode.
Now one question isn’t answered.
Is this just a boss fight or do you actually play the level that this boss is in
It would just be a boss fight. The original Final Rush stage has you racing Shadow, nothing else. Thena gainb, I could be wrong.
There’s one reason I’m looking forward to the Shadow fight that isn’t just the locale.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSlwNalNmJE – the chance this is getting remade.
Oh mu…. i got my wish for HD Planet Wisp =D …. In One day!
Well it was confirmed in the demo.
So you probably got it a lot earlier then that
I meant in a more concrete way =p I was pretty sure that the hacked demo stuff was good, just maybe not the final list
Add the Chaos Blast and i’ll be happy as hell.
Since it’s based on the 2nd Shadow fight in Adventure 2, I think he’ll only use Control and Spear. Although who knows, Sega might surprise us
It IS Generations, after all. Sega are out to prove that Sonic is a timeless classic!
He’s no stranger to time travel, either. Considering Sonic 06 which never happened, Sonic Rush Adventure is a dimensional warp, Sonic CD CENTRES GAMEPLAY AROUND IT
Now. I’m no scholar on design of old sonic stages. However if you look back where the picture of sonic and shadow “zooming” forward. You can kinda see the inside of the tunnel they were coming from. If you eye-ball the yellow strip inside the tunnel it kinda looks like the neon rails sonic and shadow used to grind on in the ark levels alil. It popped out for me cause I remember those rail being bright yellow and soft pink/red at the tips. So it very well could be ahh..Final Rush(zone?). Anyway,Thought I’d share that.
I hope we actually get to play that fucking awesome level.
I’ve been dreaming of this battle between Sonic and Shadow since Unleashed was released. Shadow can run on par with Sonic so it’s about time Sega gave Shadow a boost power. The greatest race in Sonic history (for me anyway) just went from AWESOME to PURE EPICNESS TIMES 100! I’m buying Sonic Generations for MANY, MANY, MANY reasons, but this battle is within the top 10 reasons why I’m buying this game. Sonic Adventure 2 Battle was my first 3D Sonic game so Shadow is part of my childhood.
“I’ll use you…CHAOS CONTROL!!!”
“This is the ultimate!!!”
Gotta say I am amazed. Planet Wisp looks amazing (hope we don’t run round the corner to see the rest of the level made out of orange machinery) and the boss fight against the Sonic 2 Boss looks so different. My worries of it being a repeat of Sonic 4 are gone~ As for Shadow, the boost concept makes me think this is a race rather than a fight…I hope that’s not the case
I don’t think they’re gonna radically change Planet Wisps’ level design (for Modern Sonic) although I DO wonder what the boss would be
Hope they do, Colours was like…last year. I want something new! 😮 I think the bosses in the modern era are (spoilers) Silver and Egg Dragoon
Oddly enough, the only ones from here I have on the Arcade are the mirror one and the Death Egg Zone boss.
Hey, when can we expect the newest trailer to be shown here? The one with Sky Sanctuary?
Hey Gene, Sky Sanctuary trailer is up at IGN.
It seems quite decent. They’ve approved the console date, no 3DS info yet, and as usual, no love for the PC. Goddamnit Sega, work on giving some serious gamers a chance. The consoles aren’t anything. The real win is in several key combos to pull off simple tasks! Where’s my MechWarriors 5? WTF am I talking about? Kill me.
Newest trailer contains more Chemical Plant and Sky Sanctuary gameplay.
Dat Classic Sonic
Planet Wisp… Was a really nice visual Showcase in the Wii, now is 2x better in 360/PS3.
Classic sonic looks so sad in that picture. Poor thing got abandoned…
It’ll be interesting to see how they will use Silver in a boss fight. It definitely wont be a foot race between Sonic and Silver. And the Shadow boss fight better be the most difficult.
I thought Shadow just ran not flew.
