Wii U and 3DS Sonic games developed separately.
Sega laid out its E3 plans today, most notably revealing the titles of its two Nintendo-planned 'Sonic Boom' games.
The 3DS game, developed by Sanzaru, is called 'Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal.' The Wii U game, devloped by Big Red Button, is called 'Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.' The thing that's going to rise, Lyric, is apparently "the most formidable villain in Sonic history...a giant monstrous snake-like creature from an ancient race."
The 'Sonic Boom' games exist under an all-new Sonic innitiative over at Sega, which includes all kinds of entertainment properties. Most interesting among them is an upcomming animated TV show by the same name.
'Alien: Isolation,' the single-player horror title starring Ellen Ripley's daughter, will also be playable at E3. That game is set to come out on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC on Oct. 7.
Finally, representing Sega at E3 this year, is lesser-known Sega rhythm-game 'Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd' of a popular PSP series overseas. It's set to make its western debut this year on the PS3 and PS Vita.
E3 is set to run most of next week, with press conferences from major companies running through Monday and early Tuesday and the show-floor up until Thursday.
