Sonic and the Twilight Ghost Is the third game in the Sonic Storybook Series and sequel to Sonic and the Black Knight. This is the first storybook game Nikki the Hedgehog is featured in, and she is a main character. While Sonic is reading a book called The Haunted World, whish is supposed to resemble Ghost Busters, he is summoned in by the village protector Acira. Sonic must then save people by defeating all villains, which lead up to the final battle.


All cutscenes will be in a storybook version like Sonic and the Black Knight and Sonic and the Secret Rings. The only cutscenes that won't be in storybook version is the opening, the final boss cutscene, and the ending, which will be in 3D.



The controls are very similar to the previous Sonic game Sonic Colors. Use the nunchuk control stick to move, and the A button to jump. Shake the wii remote to do a homing attack on ghost and other things that can be hit. The Z button is to drift/slide, and the B button is to boost. You gain boost power by defeating enemies and collecting rings. You boost gauge will get longer the higher the skill level you are.

  • Reach the Goal- Reach the goal.

  • Defeat the minions- Defeat a certain amount of ghostly minions.
