Can Sonic save the Nintendo Wii U?

1 min read


Way back in May Zoe spoke about the irony of Sega possibly becoming the saviour for the floundering Wii U and a mere 3 months later it appears she may actually have been onto something with the release of the new trailer for Sonic Lost World.

All old school gamers know how amazing the original Sonic titles were and we wallowed in misery when it tumbled into mediocrity, but I dare any of you to watch this video and say it doesn’t bring back that nostalgia in waves.

Yeah the graphics aren’t mind blowing but games like this aren’t about the graphics they are about the experiences and the platforming looks as solid as ever. But what’s even more exciting is that it looks like they’ve mixed in a whole bowl of Super Mario Galaxy, possibly the best game of this generation, into the mix and you are going to be swopping between 2D platforming and the 3D insanity that was SMG.

Can one game save an entire console? If it’s as good as I hope this will be then absolutely. This is the game parents my age will buy for their kids this Christmas and after that there is no reason to stop buying titles for the Wii U as it really isn’t a bad console at all.
