Ahead of the release of Blind Squirrel Games and SEGA’s Sonic Colors: Ultimate next month, the first episode of “Rise of the Wisps” has been released.
The episode, which can be seen below, has Sonic and Tails joined by a lone Jade Wisp. After escaping Sweet Mountain at Dr. Eggman’s Incredible Interstellar Amusement Park, they set out to undo this villain’s evil plot to harness the Wisps and take over the universe. For longtime fans of the series, Tyson Hesse (Sonic Mania) directed this episode.

Originally released for the Nintendo Wii in 2010, Sonic Colors: Ultimate features eight different types of Wisps, each with their own unique advantage. For instance, the “Cyan Laser” wisp turns Sonic into a laser, while the “Orange Rocket” wisp blasts Sonic upwards as a rocket ship.
New to this release is a fully remixed soundtrack and unlockable cosmetic options. The game will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via the Epic Games Store on September 7, 2021.
