Sonic Superstars

A new 2D/3D Sonic is coming to a platform near you. Sonic Superstars is a new classic-feeling side-scrolling Sonic title that was revealed during Summer Games Fest on Thursday.

Launching in the fall for every major platform, Sonic Superstars features Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy Rose as playable characters.

“Adventure through the mystical Northstar Islands in this all-new take on classic 2D Sonic high-speed action platforming,” SEGA says. “Play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy Rose and harness all-new Emerald powers to move and attack in dynamic new ways. Navigate gorgeous, never-before-seen environments solo or with up to three other players and stop Dr. Eggman, Fang, and a mysterious new adversary from converting the islands’ giant animals into Badniks before it’s too late!”

Some of the aforementioned new Emerald powers include the ability to multiply, swim up waterfalls, and change form. Regarding co-op, it will be true drop-in, drop-out gameplay allowing players to continue on even if one player disconnects.
