The Sonic Lost World DLC puts the blue hedgehog in the worlds of NiGHTS Into Dreams, The Legend of Zelda series, and Yoshi's Island. Sadly, the NiGHTS world is only available in the Deadly Six Bonus Edition (available only as a pre-order bonus) and the PC version of the game, but the other two are still worth checking out. In fact, Sonic running around the open world landscape of Hyrule is the closest we'll get to checking out Sonic Frontiers before it comes out...
