Sonic Boom Cartoon Airs in Europe Autumn 2015

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

In what has to be one of the most peculiar decisions regarding Sonic Boom, the CG animated series that ties in with the video games will air in Europe in Autumn 2015 despite the games based on the series being released in November of this year.

The Sonic Boom cartoon airs in North America and France later this year which ties in nicely to the releases of the Sonic Boom video games which act as prequels to the series. The closer release windows for both the series and games in these territories are obviously designed to compliment each other and boost sales of the game as well as interest in the show.

So how does SEGA Europe intend on promoting the Sonic Boom games in the rest of Europe now the cartoon as fallen to late next year? Only time will tell but we’d bet some serious cash that the games are not going to sell as well in this territory when compared to France and North America unless SEGA Europe are willing to put some money into a big marketing campaign.

Everything You Need to Know About Sonic Boom

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

Lots of Sonic news coming out of New York today! At a press event called “2014: Year of Sonic”, SEGA properly revealed a new animated series called Sonic Boom featuring new character designs for Sonic the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna, Tails the Fox, Amy Rose and Dr Eggman. You can see the new character designs below:

Along with the character reveal, a trailer for the series was also uploaded. Take a look at Sonic in battle with Dr Eggman’s Burnbot and with Tails providing some bizarre lazer-whip thingy that I don’t quite understand at this time:

To tie in with the series, SEGA are publishing a tie-in video game as well. The real shock comes in the choice of developers. Sonic Team will NOT be handling the Sonic Boom game. The Wii-U version will be developed by Big Red Button Entertainment (a new studio) and Sanzaru Games on 3DS (famous for various Sly Raccoon games). Check out the announcement trailer for the game below:

Screenshots for the Sonic Boom game can also be found in this gallery over at The Sonic Stadium.

Also confirmed is that the Sonic Boom continuity does not mess with the “official” Sonic the Hedgehog canon. The Sonic you know and love from games like Sonic Lost World, Generations and Colours belongs to the official canon with the Sonic from Sonic Boom existing in an alternate universe. Basically Sonic Boom does not replace the Sonic you currently know.

Nuremberg Toy Fair Confirms New Sonic Game for PS4/Xbox One/Wii U in 2015 UPDATE Sega Responds

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

UPDATE
SEGA have responded to the supposed leaked information about a new Sonic game, film and details about the new animated series ‘Sonic Boom’. Eurogamer received the below comment:

“Sega is yet to announce details of upcoming console video games for Sonic the Hedgehog or further details regarding the new Sonic CG TV series. The recent information coming out of Nuremburg Toy Fair was incorrect. For official and up to date news regarding Sonic the Hedgehog please go to www.sonicthehedgehog.com or follow Sonic on Twitter (@sonic_hedgehog).”

ORIGINAL STORY
A banner at the Nuremberg Toy Fair lists a new Sonic title to be launched in 2015 for PS4, Xbox One and Wii U. The title is unannounced by SEGA officially, but it’s a pretty solid bet that the news is genuine as it’s listed on an official Sonic merchandise board on a stand at the fair.

Other small details have also been confirmed such as the new CG animated cartoon ‘Sonic Boom’ airing on Cartoon Network this autumn. There will be a 52 episode run of 11 minute episodes and there is also confirmation of a CG animated film.

SEGA are declining comments on the leak at this time.
