Sonic Generations for the 3DS will
encourage players to be social and shuffle around town, according to
new gameplay information from Sega. This week, the studio detailed
the 3DS Spot Pass features for the upcoming title, which include the
ability to trade profile cards, share new levels, and walk your way
to unlockable adventures.
Much like a business card for Sonic
professionals, each profile card will include game stats,
customizable messages, and basic player info that can be traded and
updated through 3DS Spot Pass exchanges. Spot Pass swaps will also
allow players to share up to 100 mini-missions depending on which the
other 3DS owner has already completed. While not entirely new, these
bonus level will provide the opportunity to replay previous levels
with new objectives such as in 'Revenge', a mission resembling a hedgehog horde mode; and Special Trial, in which players must
contend with a gopher infestation in Act 1 of Mushroom Hill.
If spinning solo is more your thing,
these extra missions can also be purchased with Game Coins,
which are earned by walking around with the 3DS (or just shaking it
gently for a couple of hours).
Sonic Generations is out for the 3DS
on November 1. Browse our gallery below to see how all this
swapping, walking, and profiling will look.
