Sonic Boom Wii U and 3DS games launching this November in North America

Posted on July 24, 2014 AT 11:55am

Big Red Button Entertainment’s Wii U Sonic Boom game and Sanzaru Games’ 3DS Sonic Boom game will both launch in North America this November, Sega announced today.

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, the Wii U adventure, will arrive in stores November 18 while Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal for 3DS hits the week before on November 11. Both games serve as prequels to a CGI-animated Sonic Boom series set to debut this fall on Cartoon Network in North America.

Sonic Boom represents a new interpretation of Sonic and friends, as the artwork above no doubt clearly communicates. Rise of Lyric, as the title indicates, will introduce a new threat beyond Dr. Eggman (still Robotnik, in my eyes) that continues the series’ nature-versus-technology theme by being a create that is both organic and cybernetic.
