Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal got a brand new trailer as part of its PAX coverage and it gives you pretty much everything a fan of the series could hope for. The trailer alternates between showing some story and some actual gameplay, and it does a nice job giving you an actual feel for the game. There is a whole bunch of that fast paced action that fans of the series have always loved and some of that questionable voice acting that fans of the series have always passively tolerated. The trailer even has time to throw in a surprise Shadow cameo at the end for people wanting to see a bit more of Sonic’s extended cast.
Although I guess it isn’t a surprise now that I told you about it. Oops. There isn’t any word yet if Shadow will be playable or if he is just there to flesh out the story, but we expect more news on his role in the game shortly. Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal will be released for the Nintendo 3DS November 11 in North America.
