Sonic Lost World was released in October globally with different release dates spared throughout the month. Being out in the Market for approximately 2 months, Sonic Lost World managed to sell 640,00 copies on the 3DS and Wii U combined worldwide. No specifics were given for how much each platform sold on, so it might be an indicator the Wii U version did not sell very well. Sonic Lost World had some fierce competition throughout the near holiday season, facing of with titles such as The Last of Us and Grand Theft Auto 5. Sonic Lost World averaged around a 60% on Metacrtic for both versions, before the huge patch was released to fix many problems. SEGA is hoping to sell more with the soon release of Sonic Boom in the near future.
