Monday, May 27th, 2019

Last year they managed to raise over £600 for Special Effect over the course of 10 hours playing the Classic set of Sonic games. This year they’re aiming for a minimum of £700, but they will be streaming over two days with more of a focus on the modern Sonic titles.

Day 1 will consist of the following games:

  • Sonic Adventure DX
  • Sonic Adventure 2
  • Sonic Generations
  • Day 2 will consist of the following games:

  • Sonic Lost World
  • Sonic Mania
  • Sonic Forces
  • Check out the trailer for Race for Good 2: Adventure Battle DX by clicking below:

    The race will be hosted on both twitch.tv/projectphoenixproductions & twitch.tv/thebritishandy on June 22nd and June 23rd. It will begin at 8am BST/3am EDT/12am PDT. We wish both TitansCreed and TheBritishAndy all the best during their stream! As soon as a donation page is available we will update this story so you can donate to their cause.

    Sonic Movie Director Pledges to Change Sonic Design After Heavy Criticism

    Friday, May 3rd, 2019

    After heavy criticism of Sonic’s on-screen appearance in the first trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, director Jeff Fowler has made it clear that changes to the design are, “going to happen”. Fowler’s full tweet regarding the backlash is below:

    “Thank you for the support. And the criticism. The message is loud and clear… you aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be… #sonicmovie #gottafixfast”

    This is quite an interesting development and something that likely comes with a heavy development and marketing cost. It also shows a greater commitment to protecting Sonic’s status as one of the most recognisable mascot characters of the nineties, who was previously reported to be more recognisable than Mickey Mouse in the 6 to 11 year old demographic in 1992.

    The first Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer has currently been viewed 21.7 million times with 283 thousand likes and 479 thousand dislikes. The film is due to be released in the US on November 8th 2019. Sonic himself will be voiced by Ben Schwartz.

    The First Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Trailer Has Arrived | Video Spotlight

    Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

    The first trailer for Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog movie is here! Get your first look at Sonic and Dr. Robotnik in action by clicking the embed below:

    All the previous imagery and leaks appear to have come true. The CGI Sonic is voiced by Ben Schwartz and seems to be a “realistic” take on the character with fur covering his whole body apart from his shoes. Sonic’s body shape is also quite human-proportioned. Jim Carrey’s Robotnik does have hair, but as alluded to in the final shot of the trailer, he appears to lose it and gain a lengthier mustache at some point during the film.

    The Sonic the Hedgehog movie releases on November 8th 2019 in the US. The film also stars James Marsden and is being directed by Jeff Fowler in his feature film debut.

    New ‘Sonic Racing’ Game by Hardlight Revealed in Apple Arcade Announcement

    Tuesday, March 26th, 2019

    A new Sonic racing game by Hardlight has been unveiled during the Apple Arcade reveal.

    Simply called Sonic Racing, this new title will be launched exclusively on the Apple Arcade service, which allows users to pay a subscription fee and play up to 100 games on any Apple device.

    There is currently very little in the way of in-game assets related to the Sonic Racing title. A brief section of the Sonic Generations introduction sequence was shown in the below Apple Arcade preview video, and an image on the Apple Arcade website that seems to suggest Sonic Racing will follow the vehicular racing style of Sumo Digital’s Sonic and SEGA racing titles. A closer look at the in-game visuals has been showcased via an image on the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account (see below):

    Apple Arcade launches on all Apple devices in Autumn 2019.
