Sonic Superstars: Everything to Know
Sonic Superstars, an upcoming platform game developed by Arzest and Sonic Team, and published by Sega, brings a nostalgic twist to the classic side-scrolling gameplay reminiscent of the beloved Sonic the Hedgehog games from the 1990s.
In this exciting adventure, players can choose from four iconic characters: Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles “Tails” Prower, Knuckles the Echidna, and Amy Rose, as they embark on a mission to disrupt the plans of Doctor Eggman and Fang the Sniper.
Superstars introduces a new dynamic with the inclusion of power-ups obtained through the collection of Chaos Emeralds. The game shows Sonic Team’s effort, under the leadership of Takashi Iizuka, to modernize Sonic’s traditional side-scrolling formula, making sure its enduring appeal is continued alongside the 3D iterations.
The storyline line in the animated short follows Fang the Hunter, who escorts Dr. Eggman and his bumbling assistant, Trip, through treacherous ruins. He must confront his past errors and outsmart a powerful new enemy. Meanwhile, Eggman stumbles upon a potential catalyst for his next villainous scheme.
What Will The Game Be About?
Sonic and his pals kickstart their adventure on the North Star Islands, a land filled with unexplored wonders and a hidden story. Here, they’ll encounter colossal creatures, go on thrilling escapades, and face the nefarious schemes of Dr. Eggman.
The game introduces a fresh twist as they can harness the Emerald Powers by gathering Chaos Emeralds, adding a new layer of fun to the gameplay.
In this side-scrolling platform adventure, you’ll find yourself immersed in a 2.5D world, where the 3D visuals blend with the traditional 2D gameplay. Your mission? Take on the notorious Doctor Eggman and his hired hand, Fang the Hunter, as they attempt to capture the giant animals of the North Star Islands for a sinister purpose.
Choose from four distinct characters, each with unique abilities: Sonic, who can dash after a jump; Tails, with the power of flight; Knuckles, the expert glider and climber; and Amy, who wields a hammer and boasts a double jump.
Across the 12 zones of the North Star Islands, you’ll encounter classic Sonic elements like springs, loops, and those precious rings that serve as your health points. Keep an eye out for shield power-ups to aid you in your journey.
Each zone is a thrilling adventure in itself, featuring various challenges and unique elements, like grinding on vines in a jungle setting or transforming into a voxel creature in a futuristic zone.
Zones are divided into acts, each resulting in a boss battle that will test your skills and reflexes. Between levels, you can go on side quests to explore a 2D hub world where you can select zones and customize your character to your heart’s desire.
Sonic Superstars also introduces special stages, where you can swing through 3D environments to collect Chaos Emeralds. These emeralds grant power-up abilities and even the coveted super form, granting invincibility and blazing speed.
And don’t forget the multiplayer fun where you can enjoy local multiplayer with up to four players or engage in player-versus-player battles, whether locally or online, where you can create your robots to fight it out.
