Get ready for the return of the fastest thing on two legs as Sonic the Hedgehog gears up for a new adventure on Wii. Sonic Colours sees Sonic making a comeback in a spectacular action adventure that combines speed with classic platform gaming.

An extraordinary amusement park has been spotted orbiting Sonic’s home planet, and rumours are spreading that an alien race of Wisps, who have a unique colourful energy, are being held captive there by the evil Dr Eggman. Ever eager to help, Sonic arrives in the amusement park to not only discover that the rumours are true, but also that the strange colour energy of the Wisps can be used to his advantage as he aids in their liberation.

Sonic Colours for Wii seamlessly combines both 3D and 2D perspectives as Sonic accelerates to adrenaline-pumping speeds and blasts through obstacles like never before. The game’s alien Wisps each have a unique “Colour Power” that, once freed, Sonic can absorb whilst speeding through the various theme park-inspired stages. The Wisp energy enables Sonic to create new paths through levels in a variety of ways, such as drilling through the ground or assuming the form of a speeding laser. Stringing the Wisp power-ups together creates a combo that increases Sonic’s boost gauge even more quickly, ensuring a super speedy gameplay experience for Sonic fans everywhere.

Each area of the amusement park-inspired world Sonic visits boasts its own unique visual style, and, just like the hero of the hour, the game’s levels are built for speed from top to toe!

Join Sonic on Wii as he bursts back into life in a vibrant new adventure that combines classic Sonic the Hedgehog gameplay with amazing new possibilities.

  • Sonic returns in a new adventure that sees him shifting at new speeds on his way to saving an alien race.
  • Theme park-inspired levels and a unique colour coded power-up system offers imaginative new ways to play.
  • Explore a visually unique world that shifts between 2D and 3D perspectives.
  • Play co-operatively with a friend!
