Sonic Lost World (ソニック ロストワールド) is a Sonic the Hedgehog title for the Nintendo 3DS. It was released in October 2013 alongside a Wii U version.

While in pursuit of archnemesis Doctor Eggman, Sonic the Hedgehog travels to a world known as the Lost Hex, where he learns that Eggman has harnessed the power of a group of native villains known as the Deadly Six. When the Six rebel, however, Sonic and Eggman are forced to work together to stop them for the sake of the planet.

Story

The story begins with Sonic and Tails in the Tornado chasing Dr. Eggman in his Egg Mobile, which has an Egg Capsule latched to its underside. Sonic yells at Eggman to drop the capsule, which Eggman does, smiling as he watches the blue blur try and fail to open the capsule as it falls down. Eggman then shoots the plane with a laser, sending it into a spin. Tails is able to regain control, and it is at that moment that they notice the floating continent of the Lost Hex.

After landing, Sonic converses with Amy and Knuckles via the Miles Electric. He tells Amy that he was only able to rescue the capsule that Eggman dropped, but that he will continue working to get to the bottom of whatever was going on. Elsewhere, Eggman is showing the Deadly Six how he turns the animals into his Badniks. After telling the Six how he believes he will finally defeat Sonic with their help, Zazz gets really anxious to destroy something, and goes out to fight Sonic. Later on, Sonic eventually catches up with Eggman and the Deadly Six. After a brief introduction, Eggman leaves, with Sonic chasing after Zazz.

Back at his base, Eggman begins to run his Extractor, a machine that drains the energy out of the planet. During the run, Orbot states that the levels are high, and that the reaction is unstable, and Eggman has him shut it down, not wanting to destroy the planet. (With Zavok in the background, quietly stating otherwise). Sonic then catches up with Zazz and defeats him. After that, Sonic and Tails head of to Desert Ruins.

There, Sonic encounters Zomom, and defeats the hungry yellow blob. Sonic and Tails then find Eggman talking to the Deadly Six, stating how disappointed he is with their efforts in fighting Sonic. He then blows through a purple conch shell known as the Cacophonic Conch, which begins to cause them great pain. As Tails is beginning to study and gain an understanding of the shell, Sonic, being too quick to listen to Tails, runs up and kicks the shell out of Eggman's hand. In doing that, the Deadly Six begin to take control of Eggman's Badniks, and they begin to attack Sonic, Tails, Eggman, Orbot, and Cubot, but all five escape.

At Tropical Coast, Eggman explains to Sonic and Tails how he was using the conch shell to keep the Zeti's powers under control, and that they have a strange ability that allows them to manipulate magnetic fields, allowing them to control his Badniks. In Eggman's base, the founder of the Deadly Six, Master Zik, decides that it is his turn to try and stomp out Sonic once and for all. When he leaves, they turn on Eggman's Extractor, and they begin to drain the energy from Sonic's world. Amy then calls Sonic and Tails and tells them that their world is starting to have its energy drained from it. Eggman then explains to the duo how his machine was supposed to drain the life from their world, but for the fact that it has reached full power, it could not be stopped. Sonic decides that he'll just go on and trash it, but Eggman stops him, telling that doing so would cause a cataclysmic explosion across a hundred-mile radius. They decide then that they will have to work together in order to defeat the Deadly Six.

Later on in Frozen Factory, the four are waiting around when a holographic screen appears, with the Deadly Six threatening Sonic and Eggman, whilst telling them that they get stronger and stronger due to the energy they're getting from Eggman's machine. After that, Sonic again encounters Zeena, defeating her.

In Silent Forest, Sonic, Tails, and Eggman come across an Egg Capsule. Sonic is about to open it, but Tails realizes that it is a trap and pushes him out of the way, but getting knocked into the capsule in the process. The capsule then disappears, leaving Sonic in a state of shock and anger. Sonic then encounters Zor, who is surprised that Sonic was not captured. Later on, the two meet up again, and Sonic quickly defeats him.

At Sky Road, Sonic meets Zavok for the first time, telling him that their plan was to capture him, but, since they found Tails, their new plan is to turn the two-tailed fox into a robot. After that, Sonic gets a message from Amy, who tells him that their world is completely falling apart. Sonic tries to get more information from her, but the connection cuts off. Zavok, who is behind him, tells him that soon, Sonic will be all alone, and jumps away. Back at Eggman's base, they begin to start the process of turning Tails into a robot. As they leave, Tails takes the toothpick from Zomom's sandwich and reprograms the sequence in order for him to be able to keep his free will.

In Lava Mountain, Sonic and Eggman are walking across a bridge, when they are attacked by Zazz and Zomom, telling them how they get stronger with the energy they consumed from the planet. The bridge begins to collapse, and they begin to fall. Eggman grabs on to Sonic, and throws him over, as he slips and presumably falls to his death. Zazz, Zomom and Master Zik then attack Sonic, only to be defeated. Sonic tries to make contact with Amy, but is unable to get a signal, making him lose hope. Zavok, Zeena, and Zor, with a cyborg Tails in tow, meet up with Sonic, and Zavok orders Tails to destroy Sonic. Tails points his arm cannon at him, but he then turns around and begins to fire at the Zeti. Happy that Tails is back to normal, Sonic goes off to finish the Zeti. Sonic defeats the Deadly Six one by one, then he and Tails then go to the Extractor to shut it down, but it was already shut off. Eggman then appears, stating how he faked his death in order to charge his machine, one that resembles the Death Egg Robot.

The two duke it out, with Sonic defeating him. Tails then reprograms the Extractor to give the world its energy back. After that, Eggman tries to escape, but Sonic removed the exhaust hose, rendering Eggman's jetpack useless, and he falls through the sky. Back on Sonic's world, Sonic tells Amy and Knuckles that after a long day, that he could enjoy a nap on some fresh green grass, which he does.

Somewhere else presumably not far away from where Sonic and his friends are, a rabbit begins to chew on what he thinks is grass, but what turns out to be Eggman's mustache. Orbot and Cubot then find him, and help to dig him out. They try to tell Eggman that something was wrong with his face, but they have trouble directly telling him. As Eggman walks away, Cubot asks Orbot why they didn't tell Eggman about his mustache, and Orbot tells him to wait until their bodies are separated, so Cubot could get all the glory. Hearing this, Eggman turns around, yelling at them to tell him what is wrong with his mustache. It is then revealed to the audience that half of his mustache is missing.

Gameplay

Unlike previous modern Sonic games, Sonic Lost World uses a brand new parkour-like movement system that allows Sonic to climb up and run along walls by approaching them with enough speed. Players can now control Sonic's run speed at their pace by holding down the R button to Dash, and perform the Spin Dash using the X or Y buttons. His Homing Attack now travels in an arc and can lock-on to multiple enemies at once or a single target multiple times, and doesn't have any forward momentum. Another new move Sonic has is the Somersault Kick, which can be used to take out certain types of Badniks. The Wisps return as power-ups, and some new ones are introduced as well, such as the Ivory and Indigo Wisps.
