Hey there Sonic fans!

Now that you’ve seen it in action, here’s more info and some screenshots, which I’ve pulled out from today’s Press Release:

Developed by Sanzaru Games Inc., Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice is a single player game with collaborative gameplay components that shares key characters, events, and lore of the Sonic Boom universe. Players will see Sonic and his friends in familiar settings as they embark on a brand new adventure to battle Dr. Eggman as well as an all-new super villain, D-Fekt. The team’s adventures will bring them to locations both familiar and new as they explore, race and protect their world.

To create an entirely new experience, Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice will infuse fire and ice elements throughout gameplay, enabling new abilities to play out in special character moves and interactions with environments. The new title also delivers gameplay that enables players to run through the game at top speed, or take their time with deeper exploration and puzzle play.

New to the title is the introduction of Bot Racing, a supplemental game tied to the single player story with multiplayer gameplay. The new Bot Racing feature is an extension of Sonic Boom: Fire &; Ice that is purely about racing and speed, where a user will unlock character themed Bots to challenge friends on fast courses or tracks.

This summer, we’ll also be releasing a brand new Sonic the Hedgehog information app, called Sonic Central, for both iOS and Android devices! This one-stop-shop for all things Sonic will have exclusive art and wallpapers, character information, clips from the animated series, concept art, and info on the latest games. Sonic Pix, a unique function within the app, will let you get creative by including Sonic and friends in photos you take with your phone!

We’ll talk more about Sonic Central soon, but just know that we’ve tried to put a bit of everything in there for you guys – including some Classic Sonic art for the oldschool among you. This app has been my life for the last few weeks, and we’re excited to show it to you once it’s finished.

So, lots of big news today! We’ve got Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice releasing this Holiday on 3DS, we’ve got Sonic Central coming out this summer as a free download for your mobile phones, and Sonic Boom continues to rock the TV ratings as it releases across the world. If you haven’t been watching the TV show, I highly recommend it!
