Sonic Colours: Ultimate Receives HD Updates Spotlight Trailer

SEGA has shared a new HD Updates Spotlight trailer for Sonic Colours: Ultimate, which is coming to Nintendo Switch later this year.

With developer Blind Squirrel Entertainment behind the project, you can expect “stunning visuals, additional features, a new mode, and improved gameplay enhancements, providing players the ultimate Sonic experience.”

Those new additions include the new Jade Ghost Wisp that will let you “pass through solid objects and discover alternate paths,” and the Rival Rush Mode, which will challenge you to outrun Metal Sonic to unlock rewards.

This first spotlight trailer has looked to highlight “shiny new upgrades,” such as:

  • HD Updates: New high-definition updates and improvements, including 60 FPS, re-vamped lighting, improved graphics and 4K resolution;
  • New Mode “Rival Rush”: Go head-to-head with Metal Sonic to unlock rewards;
  • Park Tokens & Customization – Head to the store and use park tokens to unlock unique boosts, auras, shoes and gloves for Sonic;
  • Jade Ghost: Transform Sonic, fly around and pass through solid objects to reach hidden areas;
  • Customisable Controls: Customise your controls to find a layout that suits your play style;
  • Tails Save: Find a tails save and be taken back to safety if you need to be rescued;
  • 100 Count Ring: Collect a 100 Count Ring to gain temporary invincibility and boost your score after each level;
  • Music: Fully remixed soundtrack to set the pace while you put an end to Dr. Eggman’s evil plan.

After Dr. Eggman builds a gigantic interstellar amusement park packed with incredible rides and colourful attractions, Sonic races to free the Wisps that he has captured to power it. You must learn the secrets of their powers to explore six worlds, using the special abilities that they grant to overcome the enemies and obstacles that lie in your path.
