Meet the Wisps of Sonic Colors: Ultimate in Latest Trailer

Sega and Blind Squirrel Games today dropped a new trailer for Sonic Colors: Ultimate focusing on the Wisps.

When it first debuted in 2010, Sonic Colors introduced players to the Wisps, colorful and mysterious creatures that would accompany Sonic on his adventure. When activated, each Wisp would bestow a different power on Sonic, giving him access to new powers and ways to explore the level. In Sonic Colors: Ultimate, the Wisps return, ready to bestow their powers on Sonic once again.

The new trailer highlights each of the Wisp’s powers. In total, there are nine Wisps in Sonic Colors: Ultimate, one more than the main game. That’s because Ultimate introduces the Jade Wisp to Sonic Colors. Originally a Team Sonic Racing exclusive, players can no harness the Jade Wisp’s phasing powers in Sonic Colors: Ultimate. Here’s a full list of every Wisp and their powers:

  • White Wisp – Fill your boost gauge and accelerate into super speeds, destroy obstacles and enemies in your path
  • Cyan Wisp – Turn Sonic into a powerful cyan laser, move across the stage at lightning speed and zap enemies in your path
