This new look at the gameplay highlights the HD updates and is quite noticeable over the original Wii’s 480p max resolution, that’s for sure. It’s far more vibrant, the lighting is way better, and it’s just much crisper across the board, looking far more in line with recent entries such as Sonic Forces.
In addition to the HD visual improvements and previously announced features such as Tails Save, and the upcoming Jade Wisps set to make their Colors debut in the Ultimate edition (which you can get a close look at in action in this trailer as well), the trailer also shows off the new Rival Rush mode.
The goal is to go head to head with Metal Sonic in races across the game’s stages in order to unlock rewards and cosmetics that you can use to decorate Sonic and make him look more snazzy while rushing through each stage as fast as he can.
Finally, Sonic Colors Ultimate will also include customizable controls which are also mentioned in the trailer alongside the 100-ring count bonus invincibility which will be a thing now too.
Sonic Colors was one of the bright spots in the franchise over the last decade; a prettier more eventful version of it will hopefully be non-problematic when it launches on Sept. 9 for Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Switch.
