Sonic and the Black Knight is a title within the Sonic the Hedgehog series, released exclusively on Wii as the second entry in the Sonic Storybook series, following on from Sonic and the Secret Rings. The game is directed by Tetsu Katano, who was the lead programmer of the Sonic Adventure titles and Sonic Heroes. Set in the world of King Arthur, the game combines Sonic's trademark speed with a new swordfighting system, making use of the Wii Remote's motion-sensing functionality.
Lower Framerate During Soul Surge
Sonic and the Black Knight drops to 20 FPS during Soul Surges. This is not due to emulator lag, internal game lag or any other kind of defect; the game is hardcoded to run this framerate. Because the game likes to shift in framerate suddenly like this, it may cause stuttering for users that are using v-sync or other framerate stabilization features.
There are no reported problems with this title.
The following AR codes will make run at 60 FPS instead of 30.
