White space green hill

Green Hill trapped in the White Space

The White Space is the main setting of Sonic Generations. It is a broken realm between dimensions that holds the universe together[1] and where areas torn from their place in space-time by the Time Eater are sent to.

The White Space is presented as a completely white void-like limbo which lacks any form of creation and where time does not exist. In gameplay, it serves as the main world of Sonic Generations where the player can access Stages, Challenge Acts, bosses and other features.

FunctionEdit

Playstation 3/Xbox 360/PC Edit

The two Sonics can access all of the levels in the game here, as this is the hub-world of the game, and they can also find the various bonus features that can be unlocked through various requirements. This area also contains the Collection Room, the Skill Shop, and the Information Pod. On their first visit to a level, it will be completely white and devoid of life. Successfully completing an Act with either Sonic will restore the color to roughly half of the level. Completing both Acts will completely restore the level to full color and revive one of Sonic's petrified friends trapped in the White Space.

After successfully completely all six Acts in an Era, the Sonics will be granted access to each level's Challenge Acts. Each level holds a Boss Gate Key which must be obtained by completing one of ten Challenge Acts in a level (for a total of 3 per era) in order to fight the boss of that era. Though optional, the player also has the option of completing all five of a Sonic's Challenge Acts, which will restore some of the color to the Challenge area.

Nintendo 3DS Edit

The Nintendo 3DS version of White Space is not an explorable hub world. Instead, it functions more like a simple level select, with the level's icon displayed on the top screen, and the Acts and other info displayed on the bottom screen. Neither Sonic is seen on the top screen. Due to this, the missions are not located in the White Space—a separate menu on the title screen accommodates this function.

Video game erasEdit

White Space is divided into five areas. Three of these areas are dedicated to the eras of Sonic's life by video game era. Before Classic Era is the shop and bonus features and after the Modern Era is where the player can fight Time Eater at the Lair of the Time Eater once they have collected all the Chaos Emeralds.
