Sonic Lost World Zelda Mashup

How do you make an average game great? Plug it full of references to legendary games.

That's the approach that SEGA are taking with the solid-yet-simple Sonic Lost World, having already offered players of the Wii U platformer a chance to zip around Yoshi's Island in a peach of a DLC.

In a new free downloadable offering, Sonic befriends another of Nintendo's biggest heroes for The Legend of Zelda Zone. In this Hyrule-themed world, Sonic gets a chance to slow down the pace of his Lost World exploits and embark on some dungeon exploring. There's even a cameo from Link.

A cheap crossover or a masterful blend of genres? Watch the trailer and give us your thoughts.
