Longtime Sonic the Hedgehog series collaborator Dimps is developing the Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic: Lost World
, Sonic Team's Takashi Iizuka revealed in an interview
with IGN this week.
Iizuka notes that Sonic: Lost World
features unique content on the Nintendo 3DS. Though it shares similar settings with its Wii U counterpart, level layouts are entirely different in order "to match the screen size and hardware so players can enjoy both versions with a fresh feeling," Iizuka said.
The 3DS version also boasts an exclusive versus mode for up to four players, along with features that can be unlocked by linking with the Wii U edition.
Dimps previously tackled the Sonic Rush series on the Nintendo DS, and worked with Sonic Team
to produce both episodes of Sonic the Hedgehog 4
. The company was also responsible for the portable versions of Sonic Colors
and Sonic Generations
