New Sonic Colors trailer accompanies release date announcement

All the old folks like me who’ve been waiting for the Sonic of our youth to return with Sonic 4 might have forgotten that another Sonic game is coming out this year. And even if Sonic Colors isn’t a deliberate throwback like 4, it does have more than a few people who’ve played it excited for this modern Sonic, in spite of the franchise's recent history concerning werehogs. Today, publisher Sega first let loose that Sonic Colors is coming out internationally in mid-November, then hit us with a new trailer showing off the fast, pretty, and above all colorful gameplay.

It’s still looking good. No, we aren’t too hot on the song, but it wouldn’t be Sonic without goofy music. At the end viewers were treated to the US release date of November 16, 2010, which puts it right in the eye of the storm that is the holiday season. Meanwhile, on Sega’s European blog, the company confirmed that Sonic Colours is coming out across the pond November 12. So be prepared you proud Sonic fans, you just night have two good Sonic games coming out this fall.

Above: Here Brits, hopefully this spelling makes the news more palatable

    All the day time parts from Sonic Unleashed in one game plus some nifty power-ups. This will be glorious

    Going to buy, but the minute I get home: >OPTIONS: >SOUNDS: >SFX: 10 >VOICES: 0 >MUSIC: 0 >SUBTITLES: ON At which point I will blast some old school instrumental rock like Liquid Tension Experiment and try and forget that Tails is in the game.

    Lol Sonic. I wonder if Sega ever considered *gasp* creating something NEW? If Sonic was a horse, it would be dead and beaten up so badly that the only thing that's left is a pile of mush....

    Haha, that title without the 'u' in colours always bothered me.

    i think this game might just be alright if i turn off my tv speakers and use my headphones
  • slimjim441 - August 7, 2010 5:53 a.m.

    I was having some good expectations for this game, but tell me I'm not the only one who thinks that the song SCREAMS 'Wait 'til you see the game-destroying gimmick we have for this one!' I'm definitely not pre-ordering this. I'm gunna wait for a review for sure. ReCAPTCHA: Loewy Balthazar (WTF?)
  • Nin10DOH - August 7, 2010 5:33 a.m.

    Looks like Mario Galaxy...just not quite as amazing and the song...cringe
  • DarkTone - August 7, 2010 2:28 a.m.

    I dont want the labour pains, just the god damn baby! Sonic 4 is the final salvation.
  • Hypershadic - August 7, 2010 2:24 a.m.

    Hell yeah sonic 4 and Colors this is what fans have been asking for now just make sonic adventure 3 and this will be segas best lease on life since sonic adventure 2
  • Cyberninja - August 7, 2010 2:01 a.m.

    i know what i want for christmas.
  • TheWebSwinger - August 7, 2010 12:53 a.m.

    god DAMN that is a bad song.
  • hardcore_gamer1990 - August 7, 2010 12:42 a.m.

    Eeew. 3D Sonic with powerups... And crappy music. Sonic should not have lyrics. It's trying to be Mario Galaxy without new gameplay innovations. I foresee disappointment. Oh, and check this out for my ReCaptcha: I had to refresh, and got "diverse Enrico" instead. Which is just amazing.
  • shadowreaper72 - August 7, 2010 12:03 a.m.

    Maybe Sonic isnt dead yet. YAYYYYY!
  • Mrlolzattack - August 6, 2010 11:54 p.m.

    The theme song sounds like something that the people against prop eight would use
  • nuno004 - August 6, 2010 11:27 p.m.

    ugh, is this game secretly sponsored by skittles cuz this is to much rainbow
  • enlargedhousecats - August 6, 2010 11:18 p.m.

    it looks very pretty and fun, and I thought that song was decent for a 3d sonic game until the singing
  • tuomotaivainen - August 6, 2010 11:10 p.m.

    Why oh why does this have to be Wii and DS only!
  • VooDooDevil1369 - August 6, 2010 11:02 p.m.

    Actually, that kinda gave me a partial.....;)
  • MaynardJ - August 6, 2010 10:51 p.m.

    This has a sense of speed to it that reminds me of F-Zero. I definitely want to play this once I have a Wii.
