Nintendo has announced a special demo for Sega’s Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal is now available on the 3DS eShop.
The Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal demo has Sonic teaming up with Tails, Knuckles, and the newest member to the crew, Sticks as they attempt to rescue Amy from Lyric and his robot army. The title is a complete standalone counterpart to Sonic Boom: Rise of the Lyric, which is expected to be released on Wii U, both of which will be released on November 11.
Both Sonic Boom titles aren’t being developed by Team Sonic. Instead, Shattered Crystal is being developed by Sanzaru Games, while Rise of the Lyric has been developed by Big Red Button. This could make things a bit interesting considering just how different Sonic Boom looks compared to previously released Sonic titles.
I guess we’ll see if the gamble works for or against Sega when both games release next week.
