No one's keeping up with this game?  New preview: http://www.gamesradar.com/wii/sonic-and-the-black-knight/preview/sonic-and-the-black-knight/a-2008112513384546006/g-20080721153028947019

Nothing is really new in it, except they confirm that Sonic is controlled using the Nunchuck while the Wii Remote is used for slashing.

Lol, Knuckles has two swords.  The game looks very good to me.

 

New Previews (I do not have scans.  Saw this on neogaf.)

Nintendo Power preview summary:

- Nunchuk to move Sonic, A to Jump and flick of the Wiimote to attack, and Z to block

- Knuckles, Shadow and Blaze are bosses in the game, they are part of a round table, once you beat them they become your friend. Looks like they are playable as well, though this is optional.

- Each environment has about 6 to 9 missions.

- Looks like there is 3 fighting styles to choose from. Cavalier style = speed. Paladin style = Strength or Knight Style = a balance of both.

- You can get new skills, like in Secret rings.

- There also seems to be a multiplayer mode (Battle and Survivor Mode)

- "There are Solo Missions designed specifically for ranked online challenges"

NGamer Preview:

Points in the preview are -
- Stage 1's enemies all seem to be knights

- Double edges sword slows Sonic's attacks down (most definetly due to the fighting style they chose)

- The camera sits behind Sonic most of the time, switching to a side-on view for certain combat and platforming sections - just like Unleashed.

- The winding track-like stages are as much racing game as platform game - just like Unleashed

- Other gameplay elements will see Sonic returning to completed acts to take part in a series of missions and earn more followers.

- Later levels are likely to introduce slightly different play styles. We've even seen one that places Sonic atop a horse-drawn carriage, giving him the opportunity to fend off an ambush from a bunch of nimble assassins

Here is the Pal edition of the box.

So... where are the gameplay vids? :? :/



end of core gaming days prediction:

 

E3 2006-The beginning of the end. Wii introduced

 

E3 2008- Armageddon. Wii motion plus introduced. Wii Music. Reggie says Animal crossing was a core game. Massive disappointment. many Wii core gamers selling their Wii.

 

E3 2010- Tape runs out

Looks like it could be better than Unleashed--mainly because it skips the gimmicks (the sword looks like it adds to the speed gameplay) and focuses on what Sonic does best.



Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?

No new vids, sadly.

I want to see the game in motion.  The screenshots look awesome.

LOL SONIC WITH SWORDS

I'm okay just make sure not to add anyone else...if they must hopefully tails to keep with the roots of this game...



Former something....

I wouldn't be surprised if Tails gets in the game. After all, Knuckles is in there.

However, Shadow from what I've heard is confirmed. Ugh.



Shadow is okay just leave it with them Sega!

"The game plays an awful lot like Sonic Unleashed with a focus on speedily traversing pretty landscapes with a mix of 3D and 2D platforming. The difference is, of course, the sword. Frequently Sonic has to slow down and slash his way through errant knights and obstacles."

Bold = Good
Underline = IDK.

Im still interested however.

 



Awesome. Can't wait for this title.
