New images, stuff wrapped with athletic tape for Sonic Boom ⊟
I don’t know why the boomerang is wrapped with athletic tape. Maybe the same reason why Sega threw another silly friend into the mix, Sticks the badger. Because.
The two screens are from the Sanzaru-developed 3DS version, Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal. Both the portable and Wii U releases (the latter titled Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric) will feature the new snake-y villain Lyric.
Here’s the scoop on Sticks, Lyric, and the 3DS edition:
"For the first time ever, gamers will be able to take on the role of Sticks, the newest member of the team who will play an integral role in the story after her best friend Amy gets kidnapped by the ancient villain Lyric. While the Wii U version is focused on action-adventure and exploration, Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal will place a bigger emphasis on platforming and puzzles. Additionally, unique collectibles featured in the Nintendo 3DS version will unlock special content on Wii U via Wi-Fi connectivity.”
It looked like there was a video of the 3DS version published earlier, but now it’s been taken down or set to private?
