3DS game nails down a new release date

Sega will release Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice for Nintendo 3DS on Sept. 27, the company announced today. The news came out of a 25th anniversary panel dedicated to the hedgehog that was held during this year's SXSW Gaming event and livestreamed on Twitch.

Originally set for a fall 2015 launch, Sega delayed the game into 2016 last fall. It did not specify a new release window at that time.

The game is the 3DS follow-up to Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal from 2014. Fire and Ice is, like its predecessor, based on the Sonic Boom cartoon and is developed by Sanzaru Games.

Sonic Boom's previous 3DS outing fared better than the budding franchise's poorly received Wii U entry. For more on the troubled production history of that game, Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, check out our interview with its developer, Big Red Button.
