Sonic Boom Won’t Have Online Multiplayer


With all the positive hype surrounding SEGA and its Sonic team coming out of yesterday’s big Sonic Boom game reveal, a bit of news has come out regarding the game that may sour people on the upcoming title.

In an interview with Nintendo World Report, SEGA producer Stephen Frost added a few more details about the game that wasn’t announced during the reveal conference. One of those details is the fact that Sonic Boom on the Wii U will not have online multiplayer support. Frost stated that the team is focusing on the living room experience with the game instead of the online experience.

“With the way the game is designed, it’s more about you and I really talking together and solving problems,” Frost said. “We wanted that family experience — that sort of local co-op thing — and that’s what we’re really focused on.”

Sonic Boom is expected to launch on both the Wii U and 3DS later this year. More information on the game and its features will be coming at E3 this June.
