Weekly Famitsu has published its Sonic Superstars review within the Japanese gaming magazine’s illustrious pages, delivering the first verdict on the blue blur’s latest adventure for Nintendo Switch.

That has seen their Cross Review, a panel that is comprised of four reviewers that each provide their own individual score, award the game with 32 out of a maximum possible score of 40 – which, broken down, saw it receive four 8 scores.

The other Nintendo Switch game that they reviewed was Passpartout 2: The Lost Artist (30 out of 40).

Sonic and his friends’ journey will start on the beautiful North Star Islands, a mystical place offering never-before-seen environments, as well as a mysterious story waiting to unfold.

Enormous creatures, exhilarating adventures, and evil plans from Dr. Eggman await Sonic and his friends, who can now obtain brand-new abilities known as the Emerald Powers when Chaos Emeralds are collected.

Harness the Emerald Powers to take on Dr. Eggman in dynamic new ways and stop him from converting the island’s animals into Badniks before it’s too late!

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

  • 2D Sonic Platforming Evolved: 2D classic Sonic platforming has been reimagined for current-generation platforms with new zones, music, gameplay, and modern UHD visuals only possible with 3D graphics. Sonic’s movements, physics, and controls feel familiar and appeal to recent and legacy fans alike.
  • Your Favorite Playable Characters: Play as fan favourites – Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy Rose – to take on Dr. Eggman, old nemesis Fang and their nefarious schemes. Sonic designer Naoto Ohshima is also back with a new character that Sonic, and his friends will have to face.
  • Seven Emerald Powers: Use the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds to unlock various new abilities like creating clones of yourself, climbing waterfalls, powering up, and more!
  • Co-Op Multiplayer Gameplay: Sonic Superstars offers local 4-player co-op, so fans can play solo or cooperatively with friends through the entire campaign!

Sonic Superstars will be released at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 17 October 2023.
