Several weeks ago, Nintendo 3DS owners were treated with the news that Sonic Generations would be heading to their handheld in addition to the 360 and PS3. At E3, many were given the ability to play it for the first time. (See our impressions.) Today, we find out that there will be a large difference in the stages included. Outside of Green Hill Zone, the 3DS stages will differ from its home console counterpart.
Other features of the 3DS version mentioned by Sega today include:
- The appearance of Big Arm, Sonic the Hedgehog 3′s final boss
- Two player internet competitive play
- Street Pass support
- A Special Stage that will be familiar to those who played Sonic Heroes
Additionally, we hear that the two versions of the game will have different titles in Japan. While the 3DS version is called Sonic Generations Blue Adventure, the home console game will named Sonic Generations White Space & Time.
