Now entering 'The Legend of Zelda Zone'

It was already a surprise when Yoshi's Island DLC dropped for Sega's Sonic Lost World, but Nintendo president Satoru Iwata noted that there was one more add-on in store for fans, giving the strongly hinted "link" as a keyword.

As expected, that "link" is actually The Legend of Zelda's Link, and Sega has officially revealed the "Legend of Zelda Zone" for Lost World. Link himself will make cameos, and Sonic is decked out in green garb. Instead of the 2D oriented Yoshi level this one will be an open field, and it'll even include a dungeon.

The zone will also draw influences from Twilight Princess, Ocarina of Time, and other games. Just like Yoshi, the DLC will be free, and it'll arrive on March 27th. Expect impressions once it hits!

Sonic Lost World got some Yoshi's Island downloadable content this week and Sega is promoting the new content in such a '90s way. I love it.
Nintendo surprised us all with a special announcement for Sonic Lost World -- the Wii U edition of the game will be getting two new Nintendo-centric DLC stages. While the pricing model hasn't been revealed on the second add-on (which is strongly hinted as a Zelda stage), the first pack, the Yoshi's Island Zone, is completely free.
I never thought there was anything particularly difficult about Sonic Lost World on the Wii U, but apparently some people out there don't agree. As a result, SEGA has rolled out a fan-centric patch that allows you to ear...
Sonic Lost World scampered over to Japan the other week, but folks there haven't welcomed the blue hedgehog with open arms. Upon hearing the iconic speed demon was returning with another middling adventure, people everywhere ...
While it's still popular to suggest Sonic the Hedgehog hasn't had a decent game in decades, this generation alone has at least shown significant improvements. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 was an enjoyable, if controversial game, whil...
Amazon has Sonic Lost World up for pre-order and what's the super special bonus you get for getting the game on Amazon? 25 extra lives. Let me repeat that: 25. Extra. Lives. What in the f*ck. Sonic Lost World [Amazon, via Sega Blog]
Jim Sterling and Tony Ponce are easily the biggest Sonic fans on staff so it only made sense that I have them go play Sonic Lost World while at PAX Prime 2013. And as it turns out, there's some hope for the game. The control...
