Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice

Sega has announced Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice for 3DS. The game is due out exclusively on the platform later this year.

Developed by Sanzaru Games, Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice is a single player game with collaborative gameplay components that shares key characters, events, and lore of the Sonic Boom universe. Sonic and friends will embark on a new adventure to locations both familiar and new as they battle Dr. Eggman, as well as an a new super villain named D-Fekt.

The game will integrate fire and ice elements throughout gameplay, enabling new abilities to play out in special character moves and interactions with environments. It will also let players run through the game at top speed, or take their time with deeper exploration and puzzle play.

New to the game is the introduction of “Bot Racing,” a “supplemental” game tied to the single-player story with multiplayer gameplay. It is an extension of the main game described as “purely about racing and speed,” where users unlock character-themed Bots to challenge friends on fast courses or tracks.
