Twin Sonics zip through San-Fran style trailer
Friday 10 June 2011
A new trailer fleshes out
Sonic Generations' approach to uniting different aspects of Sonic the Hedgehog's legacy.
Classic Sonic whizzes through the sloping streets of a sunny city from a predominantly side-on view, harking back to his 2D debut, while Modern Sonic makes greater use of 3D camera angles.
Modern Sonic can also be seen board-riding while Classic Sonic seems to prefer the feel of red trainers on tarmac - though a skateboard power-up can be seen briefly.
Recognizable sound effects, spins and dashes are also present.
The November 2011 game for 360, PS3 and DS is intended to celebrate Sonic's 20th anniversary, following the blue blaze's first appearance on Sega Genesis and Mega Drive in 1991.
Though the series has struggled as of late, Sonic Colors (2010) on the Wii was hailed as a return to form.
Nintendo, once Sega's great rival, is for its part, marking the 2011 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda with symphony concerts and soundtrack CDs.
