Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice Announced
Nintendo announced Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice on Wednesday, the latest title in the Sonic Boom franchise.
Developed by Sanzaru Games Inc., Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice is said to be a single player game where Sonic and friends in the Sonic Boom universe take on the classic video game villain Dr. Eggman, as well as new villain D-Fekt.
As the title suggests, fire and ice elements are incorporated within the game, giving characters special abilities in the form of new moves and environmental interactions. Traditional Sonic franchise elements of speed and exploration and puzzle elements will also be found within the game. Multiplayer will also be included in the form of Bot Racing, where character themed unlockable Bots can be raced against friends for those with a need for speed.
Playable characters will include Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Sticks, and Amy Rose, who was absent from the previous Sonic Boom Nintendo 3DS title, Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal.
It’s no surprise that the next Sonic Boom title will be released for the Nintendo 3DS. Out of the two recent Sonic Boom titles, Sonic Boom for the Wii U and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal for the Nintendo 3DS, Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal’s gameplay that resembled more classic Sonic gameplay of two dimensional speed and platforming was received better than Sonic Boom’s gameplay of three dimensional action adventure and combat.
Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice for the Nintendo 3DS will be released sometime this summer.
