Over the last few years Sonic games have garnered the reputation of being down right crappy (I am looking at you Sonic and the Secret Rings) to having the same old game mechanics. With “Sonic Lost Word” SEGA is at least trying to solve the latter issue.
“With ‘Sonic Lost World,’ we’re going to introduce new gameplay and enemies, which is always fun. In terms of Sonic and his friends, he’ll have his same friends there, and I think there’ll be some new ones as well. It’s not a reiteration. It’s going to be all new.”
