Nintendo just announced on the latest Nintendo Direct that Sonic will be kicking Shy Guys and collecting Yoshi Eggs in a new downloadable zone based on Yoshi’s Island for Sonic Lost World. This cross-over is available on the Wii U eShop right now for free.
Also announced was that a second piece of Nintendo cross-over DLC will be released at a later date. Iwata hinted with a pun too terrible to mention that Sonic will be running around in a Legend of Zelda-themed world in the upcoming expansion.
Free DLC is good DLC
Wait, Iwata mentioned a Zelda themed level? I didn’t see that in the trailer. Can I get a… Link?
Thank you, thank you. Don’t forget to tip your waitress.
You just made he exact same pun Iwata made. Congrats.
Just look up the Nintendo Direct, you’ll find it in there.
What if I want to complain about 3DS version Sonic Lost Worlds not getting DLC instead?
That’s impossible, because not getting more of the 3DS version is a blessing.
You know, if the Hero of Time somehow obtained all the Chaos Emeralds AND all of the Master Emeralds, would he become . . .
Don’t start. I know what you’re going to say. Don’t. We have enough puns here already.
Sonic was the hero of time years before Link.
Watching that Direct right now. Those levels actually make me want to play the game for the sake of novelty…
Also, Zelda Dynasty Warriors looks something badass.
I would not be surprised at all if the 3rd Sonic game that is supposed to come out for the WiiU is a Mario & Sonic adventure game.
I don’t have sonic lost world so I only want the dlc for Sonic CD. that’s probably the last thing I want from that game 🙂
Wait. Zelda themed? I didn’t even notice the pun. Why not a Mario themed level? We NEED THAT CROSSOVER. No more Olympics! Just give us a freaking platformer!!! Mario 3d world “windy hill” stage.NOW!
Well… I know it’s Yoshi, but doesn’t it count as a Mario-themed level? :V
Wow. This comment section is so much more peaceful than that horrific TSSZ comment section. 🙂
I don’t want to give Tristan that pageview, but you’ve gotten me curious.
Its because every single post is approved by a mod.
This stage will re-appear after every 100,000 points earned. Thanks Sega (Obama)
As long as there’s no zombies/redeads/gibdos in the Zelda crossover, I’m happy. Don’t want Sonic to be raped by those scary things.
Damn you Nintendo, scarred the minds of over 2 million children from around the world.
This is pleasantly amazing.
I cannnot explain the genuinely yet pleasurable oddities this provides – Happy Yoshis dancing around Sonic at the end of the level, home-attacking Shy Guys, all that. It’s just weird, as if the 90’s “Sonic Vs. Mario/Sega Vs. Nintendo” thing never occurred.
And what, Zelda’s coming next? What else? Loving this, hoping for more – NiGHTS Pre-Order DLC hardly compares.
Wow all this positivity! I like it!;) word of warning don’t go to the sega forums untill this dies down…
“Sonic will be kicking Shy Guys and collecting Yoshi Eggs in a new downloadable zone based on Yoshi’s Island”
“Sonic will be running around in a Legend of Zelda-themed world”
“SEGA does what Nintendont”
“If you leave your game, stay safe. Stay alert and whatever you do, don’t die! Because if you die outside your own game, you don’t regenerate ever! Game Over.”
Hmm, I might download it. It brings back memories from my N64 days.
loved each pixel of this!… Gosh, was that good!.. they made a perfect hybrid between Yoshi’s Island, Yoshi’s Story and Sonic;… THIS is what I want for a Mario & Sonic crossover… please Nintendo and SEGA, don’t stop; I support all those ideas! give me more! XD
Does Sonic Team care about any of Nintendo’s other franchises or is this Nintendo advertising their games in a Sonic game??
Hopefully the Zelda DLC is good..
Notice when Iwata does the pun in the Nintendo Direct, there is a hidden Triforce on the wall next to Sonic.
Bet you didn’t notice that.
