Sonic Lost World was a rather interesting entry in the series, and pretty decent in this scribe's humble opinion. It was exclusive to Wii U (with a 3DS version also released) until a little heralded PC port arrived, and of course that opened up the potential for mods; just last year we saw a fan recreation of the Yoshi DLC from the game.
That same creator, known as ĐeäTh on their YouTube channel, has now almost finished a mod to complete the PC version with The Legend of Zelda DLC. It was quite a big deal back in 2014 with the quirky free content referencing The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. It had a wonky camera and was very short, but as a free addition to the game it was utterly charming and fun.
The mod of this DLC is set to arrive in mid-February with the developer having painstakingly recreated the stage; it looks like a rather impressive effort.
It's quite a throwback for us, in any case - maybe it's time to boot up that Wii U copy...

We're probably getting a full realized version in Sonic Frontiers.
What a nice, fanmade creation, I sure hope the comments don't throw a fit over it.
They re-created it? I don't know much about WIi U hacking, but was it not possible to just get the DLC files from the Wii U version or something like that?
Unpopular Opinion but Lost World is actually one of the best Sonic games but the Parkour mechanics was too hard for your average player to master so therefore the game bombed.
@EarthboundBenjy Or do it the best way.
Run original Lost World Wii U game in a PC emulator. No need to remake anything.
I wish a fan would create a performance patch for it, because Sonic runs like he's in treacle on my PC, despite much more technically impressive games running fine.
@Snow-Dust I feel like the media having a bias against sonic didn't help the games case either.
@Snow-Dust Wile I never played it, I saw gameplay and played the demo and I just assumed everyone liked it, only later did I find out, that wasn't the case.
Please tell me those are not the original SFX for Sonic's steps while running full speed.
The Zelda DLC was a fantastic 15 minutes or so. Maybe my favorite moment in Lost World, even though it is a bit janky.
I played the additional stages back then, before selling this weird and flawed game.
I rather put in Sonic 2006 into my Xbox 360 instead of playing Lost World again 😁
I think both the Wii u and 3ds versions of lost world were quite good. More fun than the boost games for me.
Sonic Lost World is for me, a great example of how modding is a good thing.
Way before this, they had a mod to fix many of the issues of the base game, like poor controls, while the game should still get some more fixes, it was way better than the launch product.
Sonic Lost World was in the right track, it was going to be a good game, then Sega screwed up on the most important part of the game which is the gameplay.
When you get down to the meat and potatoes of the game, I find it much more fun than going fast all the time. Controlled speed leaves much more room for tricks, and you can find ways to go faster. It honestly is the most honest realization of the 2D games, as you can go fast but need to find ways to do so.
@JakedaArbok there are so many ways to reach fast speed and quite a few different paths to take to end the level which is like traditional sonic. Even the naturally fast moments in the game as well like the auto runner sections which are a thrill because it’s more about dodging obstacles than “gotta go fast”.
