"Sonic's Sh*tty Friends" ought to be an official club name by now. If the club organizers actually collected membership dues, they might even be able to fund a new SEGA console!
As it is with any Sonic game, gamers keep their eyes peeled for sign of newcomers who may potentially hold ol' Blue back from the runnin' and spinnin' he does best. Up on SEGA's Facebook page, it's been revealed that the recently announced Sonic Lost World for Wii U and 3DS will welcome six such fresh faces.
The caption beneath the images reads, "Six will rise from the Lost World. Are they friends or foes? Find out on May 29th." My guess is that you'll have to fight each one and then recruit them for your team -- this is a Sonic game, so anything can happen. We'll have a better picture once full details are shared next week.
