SEGA have released some new details on their Collaborative Gameplay feature for their upcoming downloadable title, Sonic 4 Episode 2.
Collaborative gameplay sees Sonic and Tails being able to team up at any point in the game by using one of three combo moves to get through some of the more challenging parts of the levels. The three combos can be seen below:
- Copter Combo (fans of the earlier Sonic titles will remember this from Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles) which allows players to take control of Tails to lift Sonic up and over objects or onto previously unobtainable platforms.
- Submarine Combo allows players to overcome Sonic’s big weakness, his inability to swim. Tails can now pick up Sonic and swim through the water scuba style, meaning that Sonic now has a way to speed through the underwater parts of a level. Meaning that whilst you still need to collect those all-important air bubbles to stay alive, you’re in much less of a hurry thanks to Tails support.
- Rolling Combo combines Sonic and Tails into a giant spin dash increasing their speed and giving the opportunity to unleash some devastation on opponents, and the environment, alike. This can be used to mow down even the biggest enemies, knock down large objects and even plough through snowdrifts.
A new trailer has also been released. Enjoy and be sure to give us your thoughts via the comment section below.
