  • Sonic Armour Revealed for Monster Hunter 4 Palicoes

    Thursday, September 18th, 2014

    In what has to be one of the most bizarre collaborations in Sonic history, Sonic the Hedgehog is making a cameo appearance in Capcom’s Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate via new armour that can be equipped on your Palicoes.

    The armour set also gives your Palicoes a weapon in the form of Caliburn from Sonic & the Black Knight. Apparently we all needed to be reminded that that game exists.

    Also revealed is a Sonic-themed guild card which features your Palico running around a Green Hill Zone loop.

    Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is released on 3DS in early 2015.

    New Sonic Boom Character Announced

    Thursday, May 29th, 2014

    The previously leaked Sonic Boom character seen on a poster has been made official by SEGA. The character is called Sticks and she’s a jungle badger who “will play an integral role across all Sonic Boom platforms.”

    The announcement on the official SEGA blog has this to say:

    “Sticks is wilder than the other members of Sonic’s team with unparalleled animal instincts and extremely sharp survival skills. She’s a fearsome combatant and a tenacious hunter who’s armed with handmade weapons at all times, most notably a handmade boomerang that she keeps in tow.”

    You can see footage of Sticks’ voice actor and get further insight into her personality in the below video:

    There’s not much else to say really. She looks a bit like Marine from Sonic Rush. She has a silly name. She will appear in the TV show and the games. It’s another new sidekick for Sonic.
