The fact that Sonic Unleashed will be divided into parts in which the speedy hedgehog will do what he was born to do, zoom along miles upon miles of terrain, and parts in which the focus will be on combat has been known since the game’s official announcement in early April. We’ve seen screens and footage of the former slice, but what about the combat? Sega has now lifted the veil on the latter via a brand new trailer which shows what Sonic will be up to at night.
During the daytime, the blue hedgehog will be burning calories by running like the wind, mainly on rails. However, when the moon hits the sky, Sonic will transform into a werehog, just like it has been rumoured all along, as a consequence of Dr. Eggman’s dark magic. This will make him a lot slower, yet a lot stronger than before. These combat-focused night sequences will be used to change the pace, along with a few platform segments here and there.
Sonic Unleashed is expected to release this Fall.
