Sonic: Lost World Deadly Six edition revealed

Wii U bundle exclusive to preorders includes DLC inspired by classic Sega Saturn game NiGHTS into Dreams.

by

Sega today announced the Sonic: Lost World: Deadly Six edition, a premium bundle available only for those who preorder the upcoming Wii U game.

The Deadly Six edition features the NiGHTMARE downloadable content, inspired by the classic Sega Saturn game NiGHTS into Dreams.

The NiGHTMARE DLC is an exclusive level accessed by a redeemable code. In the content, Sonic must defeat the Deadly Six, enemies riding hulking nightmaren monsters.

The content can be played at any point in Sonic: Lost World, Sega said. When this level is completed, players will have access to a special Color Power, usually attainable only through Miiverse.

Sonic: Lost World launches for the Wii U and 3DS in October.

And the fact its on Wii U means, like all the Wii Sonic Games, I'll never play it.


Shame. Generations was amazing and I own it on Steam, 3DS and 360

While I have no plans to buy a Wii U anytime soon [my eyes are on PS4 for now] so the 3DS version is all I need and my 3DS needs a good Sonic game anyways. The DLC goodies is not something I would need, just a good fun gameplay Sonic is all I ask for.

While this is neat, I am indifferent. All I really care about is that the game sticks to the high level quality they've been giving us lately (Sonic Colors and Generations!). I have high hopes for this game. Got mine pre-ordered already.

Why couldnt this have been added in the game? The games not even out yet and were talking about dlc. I would have rather had a Tails or Sonic plush or hat for preordering.

Now, how about putting Platinum in charge of a Nights sequel with the original in updated HD graphics.  Completely ignoring that sorry excuse for a Nights 2.  Kind of like the Riddick bundle with Escape from Butcher Bay.

Does this special preorder bonus also apply to the 3DS version

Preorder and get some extra content? Sounds good to me. The game looks fantastic and I was already going to buy it anyhow.

Nights is one of the greatest games ever made. I have to buy this special edition now. I was actually thinking of skipping this game and picking it up next year. Thanks Sega, you had to include Nights content you mother f***ers. That's how important Nights is to me: ill buy the full game day one just to play one nights inspired level lol

Sounds like on-disc DLC.  Shame on Sega for falling so far.

I hate stupid bonus crap like this.

Give me a life-size ring or Sonic's shoes or something.

As this game looks promising, and as a big fan of Nights, this certainly looks like a buy for me.

Bet you it's going to be amazing, but you're going to ignore it and continue to whine and complain that all the Wii U has is Mario.

@Lerry757 Just think from the companies' perspective. You're losing a lot of money from greedy retailers selling used copies of your games. They can't boycott used games as Xbox One proved so what do you do?

Pre-order bonuses: People buy more games new, more money for devs. Increase business in retailers. Fans can support their fav franchises/devs and get extra content as well. Everyone wins!

Plus no-one is forcing you to get the pre-order bonuses.

@Lerry757 well from what i've been reading(besides gamespot) deadly six bonus edition will be included in stores(while supplies last) without the need to preorder it.

@Mandrew257  

There comes a point in development where you need to stop developing new content for the game and push to debug and get the game to "gold" for launch. After the game goes gold and is pushed out to the factories, you can wrap up the extra content that didn't make it(with approval from management).

@rtircoklled Unlikely, but I guess we'll have to wait unti GameStop and/or other retailers update their info to see if 3DS gets this too. I've only seen a handful of games with DLC (Fire Emblem, Style Savvy. Theatrhythm, SMT4 and NSMB2 are all that come to mind)...so who knows if they will actually explore the option on 3DS.

@SNESNOSTALGIA2 It pains me to say that I never played Nights. Never had a Sega system always Nintendo. I did recently purchase it on XBLA though so I'm looking forward to playing it finally :).

@PStrife This one I'm ok with though. It's an extra spin-off scenario that isn't part of the main game, so it being included like this is fine by me...especially since we're getting it for free anyway. Now From Ashes for ME3 for example? That should have been on disc. That was sad and disappointing. The ONLY redeeming factor about that was that it came with the CE, which is what I purchased...but they screwed everybody else and that was low.

@freedom01 If it's hard for SEGA to bring Yakuza 5 to the west, I don't think Shenmue has much of a chance.

@freedom01 I would like Shenmue III, but remember when Sega made the first 2? Yeah, it got them damn near bankrupt.  I don't think Sega has the money for another Shenmue game right now.

I did, but the 3DS versions are always different from the console version.


...Knew someone would jump on that.

@abHS4L88 He just thinks that Nintendo is the worst company in the history of the world.

@YearoftheSnake5 It's like that time when Capcom was making Mega Man 8.  Capcom wanted MM8 to be a Saturn exclusive and they put in content like the Cutman & Woodman bosses and an art gallery, but Sony forced Capcom to give the PS1 MM8 as well and Capcom didn't have the time to put in that bonus content that was featured in the Saturn version into the PS1 version.
