Sonic Generations coming to 3DS, and more

It’s been leaks galore recently, and Gamestop are making sure there’s no let up. A leaked release schedule had been holding a few interesting secrets with regards to certain games coming to certain platforms. Arguably the most interesting news to come from the list is that Sonic Generations will be dashing onto the 3DS. The game promises to offer mechanics from both the old-school Sonic platformers, and the newer 3D offerings. Such as werewolves.

Also on the list is a new title from Namco – Time Crisis 3DS. It appears that the arcade classic will be making an appearance on Nintendo’s handheld, but whether this will be a port of an existing title or a brand new entry is yet to be seen. Literally no information is available about the game as of yet, but it’s probably safe to assume that the game will feature either a control scheme akin to Point Blank DS – that is, you tap to shoot – or, more likely, that the game will make use of the 3DS’ gyro-sensors and/or cameras.

And last but by no means least, it looks like the gorgeous Rayman Origins will also be making its way onto the Wii and the Nintendo DS in some form before the year’s out. Thumbs up!

A ‘release date’ for Skyward Sword was also on the list – 1st November, 2011 – but it’s almost certainly the case that this is simply a placeholder date until retailers get official word from Nintendo.
