Lego Dimensions is an action-adventure game in which Lego versions of various franchises cross-over. It follows the toys-to-life format that Skylanders started where the game comes with a portal on which you place Lego figures which you can then use in the game. Sonic is one of the characters in the second series of packs released for the game. He was included in a Level Pack, along with a build for the Sonic Speedster and the Tornado. Sonic also voiced an ad for promoting the "Knight Rider" Lego Dimensions Pack.

Story (Main Game)

Batman from DC Comics, Wyldstyle from The LEGO Movie, Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings, and many other characters must embark on an adventure across the many dimensions to stop the evil Lord Vortech, who plots to use the "Foundation Elements" scattered across dimensions to rule over all existence.

Story (Sonic Dimensions)

The story starts with Sonic in Green Hill Zone, destroying many of Dr. Eggman's robots in the process. He eventually reaches a Goal Post with a Special Stage ring through it. He goes on through the ring and goes through a Sonic 2 styled special stage. After collecting the Emerald, he heads back to Tails' Workshop in hopes of getting there before Dr. Eggman. Unfortunately, the doctor was able to reach the workshop before him, tying up Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Shadow, and Big, in an attempt to make Sonic give up the last Chaos Emerald, which would give him possession of all seven Emeralds. He also reveals his new Keystone Device, which allows him to access any dimension and summon anything he wants to in order to take over the universe. This ambush plan fails however, as Sonic distracts him long enough (by complimenting his mustache), which gives him time to rescue Tails and the others, aside from Amy, who seems to have gone missing. Eggman's Keystone Device starts to malfunction for unknown reasons, automatically activating multiple portals to other dimensions, which suck up Knuckles, Shadow, and Big. Sonic tells Tails to come up with a plan while he goes through one of the portals to rescue his friends and find Eggman.

When he comes out of the portal, Sonic ends up in Emerald Coast from Sonic Adventure, and before he can recall where he is, a killer whale starts to chase him. He manages to outrun it, and finds the instructions to build his car, the Sonic Speedster. He uses it to jump on ramps he builds to get from island to island, until he finally reaches Eggman at the end of the coast. He manages to stop the doctor with his new vehicle, but Eggman escapes into another portal. Sonic jumps through it and enters another special stage. He obtains another Chaos Emerald, and meets up with Eggman in what appears to be the Death Egg.

Eggman reminds Sonic that he can summon any enemy he wants to, including his past Metal counterparts. He summons Mecha Sonic (Death Egg Zone Boss) from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (named Robo Sonic in this game), Mecha Sonic (Sky Sanctuary Zone Boss) from Sonic and Knuckles, and the finally Metal Sonic from Sonic CD. Sonic manages to defeat all three, much to Eggman's dismay, but the victory is short lived, as the Keystone Device malfunctions once again, creating more portals to other dimensions. Eggman escapes, and Sonic soon follows, however one more portal opens once Sonic leaves, revealing a familiar water monster has come to the Death Egg.

Sonic goes through another Special Stage and obtains the third Emerald, then reaches his new destination: Metropolis Zone. After going through the base to find Eggman, he manages to get in communications with Tails, who helps Sonic destroy some security robots, and sends over the parts and instructions for building the Tornado. After building it, Sonic and Tails use it to shoot down Eggman, who is flying above Metropolis looking out for the hedgehog. He manages to escape before any real damage to his Egg Mobile is done, and goes through another portal. Sonic follows through, goes into another Special Stage, collects the fourth Emerald, and heads on into Marble Zone. He meets up with Omochao, much to his distaste, and goes through solving the puzzles in Marble to find a way out. While Omochao tries to help out, he eventually gets lost somewhere, then catches up with Sonic before he finds Eggman again. They duke it out once more, Eggman escapes, Sonic follows, he enters another Special Stage, and retrieves the fifth Emerald.

While in the dimensional rift, Sonic catches up the Eggman and tears off the Keystone Device from his Egg Mobile. He uses it to send Eggman into another dimension, and to create some terrain from Green Hill for him and Omochao land on, as well as finally teleport Knuckles, Shadow, and Big back. Sonic lets everyone know he obtained the device, and Knuckles suggests that Sonic would be best to sort out the mess Eggman has done, before tossing Shadow's gun into the dimensional rift. Sonic reminds him however that there are still two Chaos Emeralds somewhere. Big then remembers that he saw one at what he describes to be the Labyrinth Zone. Shocked about the idea of going back there, he reluctantly agrees to go and obtain the sixth Emerald.

He goes through the Labyrinth and manages to find another Special Stage ring, he enters it and collects the sixth Emerald. He meets up with his friends, and lets them know he got the Emerald. Tails then shows up in the Tornado 2 letting them know Eggman rebuilt the Death Egg. Sonic goes along with Tails to go and finally finish off the doctor. Once Sonic arrives on the Death Egg, Eggman appears in his Death Egg Robot, containing the last emerald inside. Sonic is easily able to beat the robot, but Eggman quickly retreats after what Sonic thought to be fear. But as Eggman points out, Chaos, who was teleported here earlier from the Mecha Sonic fight, has come to try and cause trouble once more. Chaos takes the Keystone Device that Tails was keeping safe from Eggman and gains the Elemental Powers it holds from the main game's story. Eggman appears on an intercom telling Sonic to destroy Chaos, but when asked to give Sonic the Emerald to turn into Super Sonic, he refuses. Sonic doesn't manage to do much damage to Chaos, until Amy finally shows up to smack Eggman aside with her Piko Piko Hammer, take the final Emerald, and give it to Sonic. Sonic then goes into his Super form, easily defeating Chaos and then teleporting him into another dimension. With the damages done to the Death Egg because of Sonic's fight with Chaos, it starts to fall apart, and Amy unfortunately starts to fall off as well. Super Sonic manages to create a portal for Amy to go back home before she falls to her doom, leaving Eggman behind to plan his revenge once again. Sonic thanks Tails for his help, and they go through the portal, their fate being left unknown, but implied they go back to their normal antics.

Sonic the Hedgehog was announced as as a level pack as part of Wave 7 and released in November 2016. It contains three buildable figures, a brand new level, and an Adventure World based on Sonic's past.

Figures

  • Sonic the Hedgehog (Playable Character)
    • A Lego figure of the blue hedgehog. Sonic is the fastest character in the game. He can perform the Spin Jump with his default jump, as well as the Spin Dash, Homing Attack, Stomp, the Spinning Needle Attack, and a few other moves as well. After collecting enough Studs, he can transform into Super Sonic for a short amount of time. He can refill his Super meter by collecting more Studs.
  • Sonic Speedster (Vehicle)
  • The Tornado (Vehicle)
    • This is an aerial vehicle that can be used to fly up to high places. It's based on Sonic's plane, the Tornado. It can be rebuilt into a Crabmeat, a land vehicle, and the Egg Catcher, an aerial vehicle based on the Casino Night Zone Boss, the Catcher Eggman, from Sonic the Hedgehog 2.


Sonic Dimensions (Level)

In addition to the story mode seen above, the level features many different areas and Zones from past Sonic titles.


Sonic the Hedgehog Adventure World

Like with every other series in Lego Dimensions, there is an Adventure World, which acts as a Hub World, where you can run around helping Sonic's friends and rivals, collect Studs or Gold Bricks for purchasing gadget and vehicle upgrades, and obtain a Red Brick to unlock an exclusive cheat. The world is made up of multiple Zones and levels from Sonic's past, all mixed into one floating island. Some locations have hidden areas based on other zones as well. The locations are:

Enemies

Quests

There are a total of five Quests that you can do for various characters to obtain a Gold Brick, which will help you upgrade your vehicles and gadgets.

  • Tails' Lab (Tails' Quest)
  • Big's Big Fishing Adventure 4 (Big's Quest)
  • Eggman's Master Plan (Eggman's Quest)
  • Rose to the Rescue (Amy's Quest)
  • A Floral Dilemma (Shadow's Quest)
  • LEGO Dimensions and Knuckles (Knuckles' Quest)

Renovations

There are also six renovations you can make to the Adventure World. In exchange for Studs, you can create attractions to make the world look nicer, or unlock new missions for even more Gold Bricks.

  • Restore the Big and Froggy Turrets
  • Unlock the jukebox
  • Restore Tails' Workshop
  • Restore the Eggmobile ride
  • Restore the Chao Balloon
  • Restore the Snowboard Hut

Red Brick

In every Adventure World, there is a robot carrying a Red Brick. If you manage to catch the robot and collect the Red Brick, you'll be able to unlock one of the keys to getting a Red Brick cheat, which you will then need to pay a certain amount of Studs to unlock said cheat. If you collect the one in the Sonic the Hedgehog Adventure World, you will be able to have access to the Sonic series' cheat.

  • Ring-A-Ding-Ding! (100,000 Studs) - Turns all Studs into Rings

Trivia

  • The Blue Typhoon shares its name with the ship of the same name in the third season of the anime Sonic X, even though there are little to no visual similarities to it.
  • Any Zone that appeared in the classic games does not feature its original music, but rather sound-alike tracks. The reasoning is because of licensing, and was deemed easier to create original or similar tunes for the game, rather than getting the rights from their respective composers.
