Sonic Superstars arrives as the iconic SEGA mascot is on an upswing. This brand new side-scrolling platformer follows Sonic Mania, a great throwback adventure that mixes old and new, and Sonic Frontiers, the best 3D entry in the series in a long time. The less said about Sonic Forces, the better. The point is, the character has had a...
Sonic Superstars is a side-scrolling platformer available on multiple consoles, but it was always going to have a hard time in 2023 against a critically acclaimed Super Mario title. Speaking as part of its latest financial sales report, publisher SEGA hinted that launching the co-op outing against Nintendo’s latest – as well as...
Sonic Superstars returns to the bad old sidescrolling days on Sega Genesis, with a few modern caveats. There's a chaotic multiplayer component, for one thing, which looks like it could be a ton of fun when the platformer launches next month, on PS5 and PS4, on 17th October. Battle Mode is a new addition and will support up to eight...
Snake, rattle and roll
We're now less than a month away from the release of Sonic Superstars, the hedgehog's latest side-scrolling adventure from SEGA. Leaning into the nostalgia factor with its retro-inspired design and classic characters, the publisher is following its tradition of releasing animated cartoons prior to the release of each Sonic...
Release date confirmed
Confirming a leak from earlier in the year, Sonic Superstars will indeed be heading our way on 17th October, 2023. Flippin' heck, October is busy. The news comes at the end of this new trailer for the side-scrolling platformer, with an emphasis on the game's multiplayer aspects. While you can play the game solo, it's also...
Gotta Gamescom fast
The lineup for Gamescom Opening Night Live is taking shape quite nicely now. Geoff Keighley's showcase, which kickstarts Gamescom proper, is teasing appearances from many highly anticipated titles, and the latest announcement brings SEGA into the fold. We'll get to see some more of Sonic Superstars during the show: As per...
Naoto Ohshima and Takashi Iizuka join forces
Lest we forget, we're getting a new 2D Sonic game later this year. Sonic Superstars combines the old, familiar gameplay fans expect from the classic games with new visuals, zones, and abilities. On top of all that, though, the title will mark the debut for a brand new character to the series. Trip is her...
Later this year, SEGA is set to launch a brand new Sonic the Hedgehog game — one that combines an old-school feel with modern, 2.5D presentation. Sonic Superstars shows a lot of promise, and was pretty good fun in our brief hands-on time back in June, but there's still a lot about the game that's unknown. Enter
Gotta go fast
SEGA has released the beautifully animated opening cinematic from Sonic Superstars, its upcoming side-scroller throwback for PS5 and PS4. This has clearly been created with a heavy dose of nostalgia in mind, as it reminds us of the legendary cartoon-style intro from Sonic CD. We don’t think it’s quite as good as that one – but...
A chip off the old block
Don’t love the new-look character models in upcoming PS5 and PS4 party platformer Sonic Superstars? Well, you’ll be able to swap them for LEGO skins instead. A new trailer showcased during today’s Sonic Central showed off skins for both the Blue Blur and his arch nemesis Eggman, inspired by the Danish toy giant’s...
It'll feel like the classics
Sonic Superstars is the next game starring SEGA's mascot, and it's taking things back to 2D — albeit with three-dimensional models instead of pixels. While it looks like a lot of fun in its debut trailer, there has been some concern among fans that the game's physics may be closer to Sonic 4 than Sonic Mania, or the...
