A new trailer for “Sonic x Shadow Generations” was revealed during PlayStation’s State of Play broadcast on June 6, 2024. This upcoming game is set to launch on October 25, 2024, for both PS5 and PS4. The trailer showcases the fan-favorite character, Shadow the Hedgehog, displaying his new powers​.

In this game, players will experience a remastered version of the original “Sonic Generations” along with a brand-new storyline featuring Shadow. The original “Sonic Generations” was released in 2011 to commemorate Sonic’s 20th anniversary, combining classic and modern Sonic gameplay. It included levels from various Sonic games over the past 20 years, allowing players to enjoy both 2D and 3D Sonic adventures​​.

The new addition to the game introduces Shadow’s standalone campaign, where players can explore his dark past and learn more about his motivations.

While navigating these time-travel adventures, Sonic teams up with familiar faces, including a classic version of himself. Meanwhile, Shadow embarks on his own journey to protect the world, driven by his strong sense of duty and memories of an old friend​​.

Takashi Iizuka, Creative Officer at Sonic Team, stated, “With Sonic x Shadow Generations, we wanted to bring Sonic Generations to PS5 and PS4 while pairing a brand-new Shadow storyline to crossover with the original story. Players will get to know Shadow more as a character and understand his motivations, creating the ultimate celebration of Classic Sonic, Modern Sonic, and Shadow gameplay that all fans will surely enjoy”​.
