Sonic Sets Forth In Hyrule With New Sonic: Lost World DLC

Published

 on

Sonic: Lost World makes its second Nintendo crossover after Yoshi with The Legend of Zelda. In this new free DLC, Sonic will adventure Hyrule alongside Link. With a green tunic costume, Sonic explores the land, opens treasures, and fights various enemies from the Legend of Zelda. Sonic also faces the infamous Cucco. Sadly, unlike Sonic and the Black Knight, we won’t see Sonic wield a sword in this DLC.

Still, it’s a free level and has plenty of references from Legend of Zelda past such as Twilight Princess’ Hyrule Castle, Link riding a Loftwing from Skyward Sword, and the use of hearts rather than a ring counter. The DLC will be coming out on March 27th.

Pokémon Developer Game Freak Emphasizes Original Game Creation

Pokémon

Game Freak, best known for the Pokémon franchise, is starting to emphasize and prioritize original game creation.

In an interview with Video Game Chronicle, Masayuki Onoue, a director at Game Freak, says that the company has launched Gear Project, an initiative in which developers pitch ideas during slower periods between big releases to create more original games other than just Pokémon.

Onoue also spoke about Production Team 1 and Team 2 at Game Freak, the first prioritizing Gear Project for the company as a whole and the second focusing on Pokemon. He noted that Gear Project allows the developers to gain more experience working on different platforms such as PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, as well as transferring new skills and techniques they learned back to the Pokémon team.

Some of the games that Game Freak has released so far through Gear Project are HarmoKnight, Pocket Card Jockey, Tembo the Badass Elephant, and Giga Wrecker. Game Freak is also developing Town, an RPG game that was shown off in a Nintendo Direct back in September 2018 and is due out this year.

Additionally, Game Freak is working on Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, the latest entries in Nintendo’s flagship franchise. Both of those are set to release later this year.
