Burbank, California — January 31, 2024 — Today, as part of PlayStation’s State of Play broadcast, SEGA revealed SONIC X SHADOW GENERATIONS, introducing a brand-new Shadow story campaign featuring never-before-seen powers and abilities, as well as a complete remaster of the original Sonic Generations™ for the latest console era. Explore time and space in this definitive blend of Shadow, Classic Sonic, and Modern Sonic gameplay. SONIC X SHADOW GENERATIONS is set to release digitally and physically in Autumn 2024 on PlayStation®5 (PS®5), PlayStation®4 (PS®4), Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, the Nintendo Switch™ family of systems, and PC.
SONIC X SHADOW GENERATIONS introduces a brand-new Shadow story campaign where his old nemesis, Black Doom, returns and threatens to take over the world. Fans can play as Shadow and dive into his dark past to unlock his inner powers, explore his backstory, and confront familiar foes to save the world and prove why he’s known as the Ultimate Life Form!
That’s not all! SONIC X SHADOW GENERATIONS also includes a full remaster of the original Sonic Generations, which combined nostalgia from the iconic 2D era of Sonic with the blistering excitement of modern 3D Sonic gameplay. The story centers around Sonic and friends as their universe is thrown into chaos when a new threat appears, taking them on a journey through time and dimensions. Players can experience this adventure again with upgraded visuals, new challenges, and more bonus content!
Interesting to see that Black Doom is actually returning and that this isn’t just visiting memory lane but in the eyes of Shadow. Can’t wait to see how this plays out. The addition of new visuals, challenges and content will surely also be very welcome for those who already played Sonic Generations.
The game will also release in time for Sonic’s 3rd movie, which also features Shadow. You can bet this was all planned out.
Looking forward to hearing more!
