Sonic Colors Coming to Wii, Nintendo DS

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 won't be this year's only outing for SEGA's iconic mascot, as the company today announced a new entry dubbed Sonic Colors for Wii and Nintendo DS.

Due to hit Europe and America in "Late 2010," according to the game's official site, the platformer offers a "perfect blend of 3D & classic 2D perspectives on Wii, and solid 2D dual-screen gameplay on Nintendo DS."

The SEGA America Blog offers a few additional details, noting that Dr. Eggman has trapped "an alien of Wisps" in an amusement park, and that Sonic can "absorb" their unique "color power" after freeing them. For example, the "Yellow Drill" lets Sonic "create new paths through the stages by drilling through the ground" while the "Cyan Laser" sees him "speeding through the stage as a laser." A short trailer was also provided:
