Sonic Rush Adventure Announced

Poor Sonic has fallen on rough times recently, with game after game continuing to suck the life out of a franchise that used to be one of gaming’s best. One of the few Sonic games in recent memory that didn’t suck and was actually really damn good, however, was 2005’s Sonic Rush for the Nintendo DS, a game that held true to the series’ fast-paced 2D platforming roots while introducing some new features to keep up with the times at the same time.

Two years later, Sonic Rush is getting a sequel this fall entitled Sonic Rush Adventure, which brings back the dual-screen platforming action and epic boss battles  of the original and takes Sonic on an all-new seven-level adventure against ruthless pirates in search of a prized treasure. New to this sequel are special ships, including a submarine, water bike and hovercraft, that Tails builds to help Sonic on his adventure and that players will control using the touch screen. Also new are wireless multi-player racing and mission-based battles via DS Download Play and/or the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

More information can be found at Sega’s Sonic Rush Adventure game page. Check below for the first gameplay screenshots.
