Sonic Boom games coming in November

Sonic Boom, the blue hedgehog's next stab at a reboot, has been dated. The 3DS Shattered Crystal will come on November 11, and Rise of Lyric for Wii U will follow on November 18.

Notably, neither game is being developed by Sonic Team. The 3DS version is coming from Sanzaru Games, while the Wii U title is coming from Big Red Button. This signals a larger effort on Sega's part to rebrand the classic character with modern cartoon sensibilities inspired by animated series like Adventure Time. It's introducing some new cast members to that end, but we've had some concerns. We'll know how it turns out around Thanksgiving.
