Sonic the Hedgehog must be big in Germany. I mean, it’s the only thing I can think of since they seem to get so much footage before everyone else. That, and they are part of the demographic getting that awesome collector’s edition…this time around, German gaming site GamesWelt delivers yet another sneak peek into Sonic Generations, now just about a week away for us Americans. Be forewarned, there are a bit of spoilers in the video below, along with a heapin’ helpin’ of German Omochao. So keep that in mind as you watch the latest footage.
Along with some more clips of Green Hill and Sky Sanctuary (and a closer listen to the modern mix of the latter), the video provides the first look at one of the mission modes for the game that Aaron Webber has been teasing us with. Though if you’re paying attention you may have heard about it beforehand, it is the first footage of Classic Sonic racing against everyone’s favorite Knucklehead, Knuckles the Echidna. Filled with giant Motoras and Beetas, seems Sonic can use them as giant springs to reach higher paths as he races along Modern Knuckles. Wonder how many animal friends it takes to power those things…either way, the mission is accompanied by Cash Cash doing a cover of Super Sonic Racing, best known for haunting your dreams in Sonic R. And no, your ears do not deceive you. Someone does indeed say the phrase “Sega Saturn.” Would have been awkward to say “also ported to the PC, Playstation 2 and Gamecube,” I guess.
Once again, Sonic Generations is released in America on November 1st, and in Europe November 4th.
