Previously a Wii U/3DS Exclusive, Sonic: Lost World Coming to PC With 60FPS Support

Sonic runs to a new platform.

130 Comments

Sonic: Lost World, the 2013 Wii U and 3DS game, is coming to PC, Sega announced today. The PC version will be available through Steam on November 2 for $30. Everyone who preorders the platformer also gets a free copy of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, the 2012 kart racing game featured on Breaking Bad.

No Caption Provided

For its PC release, Sega has updated Sonic: Lost World to support a frame rate of 60fps, while players can also look forward to better graphics overall (see the system requirements below). The game also supports mouse and keyboard or gameplay controls, as well as full Steam functionality, including Steam achievements, leaderboards, and cloud support.

The game's system requirements are printed below.

GameSpot's Sonic: Lost World review scored the game a 5/10. Reviewer Mark Walton said, "Sonic Lost World is confused and derivative, and tries far too hard to be clever without any clever design to back it up."

  • Processor: Intel Pentium Dual-Core T4200 (2x2.0GHz) or AMD equivalent
  • Memory: 2 GB RAM

  • DirectX: Version 9.0c

Eh, normally I buy my games on PC, but this one I will opt for the WiiU version for the Nintendo-themed levels that are very unlikely to be on the PC version.

Sweet, I like the 3DS game even though the levels can get pretty hard. I played a demo of this game for WiiU and liked it quite a bit. I'll probably pick this up as soon as I can. I wish that SEGA would put their games on GOG though too.

They should have aimed for SteamOS/Linux while they were at it.

I just think it's funny that win 7 is the recomended OS and not 8 or 10. XD

As for the game itself, I don't think the sales will make up for the costs it took to port it. Not that I think it's terrible or soemthing but Sonic's reputaion may be enough to kill even a "decent" game.

Getting so tired of seeing Sonic games coming, it's like Sonic is all Sega could think of. You have like over 100 IPs that is not Sonic Sega, just pick one and remake it for modern game system.

Forget this game, just give me Skies of Arcadia Legends in HD 60fps on Steam and I'm good.

I hated that game, but hopefully this means more Sega games will come to PC. I'd love to see Vanquish.

@gamerotyear: I haven't played it only played a demo on the a WII U in a store. How is it shit? Controls seemed okay to me and was easy to adapt to. Graphics are standard and the could just be wiped from the disc.

I can't believe this game is not remaining exclusive on Wii U... I own it on Wii U and its so damn under rated with great free DLC. I am not really happy that the game is going to end up on PC because its one of those games that exclusively made the Wii U shine and those Wii U gamers that played it from beginning to end truly appreciate the great game that it is. Also, the Wii U version did run at 1080p at 60fps also...

@kachan64: are those the same fans that have requested for other games to come out on systems and they arent heard?

saying "because the fans asked for it" is the biggest bullshit a company can say when doing something like this.

@mrjoeyyaya: I don't think Nintendo is losing any sleep or holding any grudges against Sega for this. The game wasn't well received and didn't really make people compelled to buy the Wii U in droves. So nothing of value is lost. Don't worry you can still have your exclusive Zelda level.

That is really sick and selfish, other gamers can't enjoy the game just because they don't want/have a certain console. Exclusives do nothing but hurt the gaming community (not industry). Stop selling your soul to these console brands and just enjoy the games and experience.

@drocdoc: Exclusives are what make a console special and memorable, they make up a good portion the experience of a console. Taking away exclusives make a console just a little less special. Sure more people will get to play the game now and that's great but unfortunately this game is no longer a reason to own and cherish the Wii U. Frankly it's possible this version will overshadow the wii u version.

@112494: I would if i could :p

I have nothing against Nintendo (except their hardware choice) but I would sacrifice my finger nails for mario and pokemon to leave Nintendo and become third party titltes.

Although I am enjoying all the original wii titles via dolphin.
