Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice continues to shape up as a potential return to form for the world’s most famous hedgehog.
The footage comes courtesy of Sega’s Tokyo Game Show livestream, as helpfully captured by Nintendo Everything. While you’ll need to bust out a Japanese to English dictionary to understand everything that’s being said, gameplay is a universal language, and it’s hard not to understand what’s happening when Sonic gets up to speed.
The footage shows two levels—one set in a snowy forest, the other in a woodsy village that looks ripped straight out of a fairy tale. There’s also a full boss fight against a totem pole–style creature that makes interesting use of both of the 3DS’s screens, as well as Sonic’s new fire and ice abilities.
Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice is due out for the Nintendo 3DS on September 27th.
