With all of the hubbub surrounding Sonic’s 25th Anniversary Party, it was easy for Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice to slip through the cracks. With news of Sonic Mania, Project Sonic 2017, the Sonic Boom cartoon series and a lot of technical difficulties, many probably didn’t notice the upcoming 3DS title even made an appearance.

Nevertheless, developers of the new spin-off title continue efforts to change the general opinion of the critically-slaughtered Sonic Boom name. Along with showing off some gameplay, developers insisted multiple times that Fire & Ice will be very, very fast.

The new gameplay footage revealed at the 25th Anniversary Party backed up that claim, as it showed Sonic making his way through levels at a blistering pace — definitely an improvement over previous Sonic Boom titles.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice releases on September 27th, 2016. The launch edition of the game will be bundled with three episodes of the popular TV series of the same name.
