Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric is an action adventure game developed by Big Red Button and published by Sega for the Wii U. Along with Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal for the Nintendo 3DS, the game is a spin-off of Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series and is the start of the Sonic Boom series, which also consists of an animated television series (whose games serve as prequel), a comic series by Archie Comics, and a toyline by Tomy. Rise of Lyric was retitled as Sonic Toon: Ancient Treasure for its Japanese release.
The two games together formed the third and final part in Sega's exclusivity agreement with Nintendo, following Sonic Lost World and Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games in 2013. Both games were released in North America, Europe, and Australia in November 2014, and in Japan the following month.
