Sonic Lost World demos in Europe this Thursday

Sonic Lost World July screenshots 6Better late than never! In one of the most topsy-turvy release schedules ever, demos for both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Sonic Lost World will be arriving in Europe when the eShop updates this week, on Thursday at around 2 or 3pm British time. This follows the demos hitting the US last week and Japan last month – which, when you consider that Europe got the full game before either of those regions, is a rather baffling series of events.

As with the other demos, the EU Sonic Lost World demos will likely contain Windy Hill Zone 1 on Wii U, in addition to Windy Hill Tutorial and Windy Hill Zone 1 on 3DS. If you’ve not played either of the versions yet and want to try them out before you buy – especially with Christmas on the horizon! – now’s finally the chance to do so.

Will you be downloading the demos when they arrive in Europe later this week? Let us know in the comments!

  1. Well I went to Target to get a hands on Sonic Lost World demo for Nintendo Wii U but theres no Sonic Lost World demo for Nintendo Wii U?

    1. I believe you can only get the demo from the Nintendo e-Shop. The demo is not available for retail, only digital download. Stores will only supply the full game. And by the way, your English is getting noticeably better.

  2. Boy, how convenient that the demo is ennounced to come out, right after I caved in, bought, AND completed the 3DS version! Which isn’t really a bad game at all. Actually rather fun!

    I got the Deadly Six edition for Wii U on the day of release. It is easily my favourite 3D Sonic game of all time.

    1. I lied, just checked a few hours later and it’s up. Awesome as hell, but it’s only the first act with a few cutscenes to go with it.
