Sonic & Eggman Ducks Join Tubbz Line of Cosplaying Ducks from Numskull | Merchandise

Friday, February 7th, 2020

Numskull have been producing a line of model ducks that cosplay as various video game and cult movie characters for a while now, but with the release of their 2nd wave of ducks they have also introduced Sonic and Eggman ducks.

Each Tubbz duck comes in a presentation case shaped like a bath. Even though the models float, they are a bit too top heavy for their own good and don’t float upright on the water’s surface.

You can order the Eggman Tubbz duck by clicking here, or you can order the Sonic Tubbz duck by clicking here. Each duck costs £12.99 each.

Gotta Go Fast: The Official Sonic the Hedgehog Panel Confirmed for SXSW, takes place March 20th 2020

Thursday, February 6th, 2020

SEGA’s recently announced Sonic 2020 initiative is off to a flying start – earlier today it was announced that SEGA AGES Sonic 2 will release on the eShop on February 20th, and now it’s been confirmed that Sonic will once again make his presence known at the SXSW expo in Texas, as the annual Sonic panel returns for 2020.

The panel’s onsite description is as follows:

Sonic the Hedgehog is back at SXSW! Join special guests from SEGA and Sonic Team as they talk about the latest for the blue blur and his next steps for 2020 and beyond. There’s almost always a special announcement or two to be had, so be sure to stay tuned!

The panel is usually hosted on the 16th, but the switch to the 20th conveniently lands it within the Sonic 2020 campaign. As for what’ll be announced there – only time will tell!

Knuckles in Sonic 2 Added to Upcoming SEGA Ages Port of Sonic 2

Wednesday, January 15th, 2020

Weekly Famitsu have revealed a new feature of the upcoming SEGA Ages port of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Nintendo Switch. This port will also include the ‘Knuckles in Sonic 2’ functionality that would normally come from locking the game onto Sonic & Knuckles. This allows players to play the entire game as Knuckles the Echidna as opposed to Sonic or Tails.

The SEGA Ages port of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is still without a release date, but it will be coming to the Nintendo Switch as a downloadable title. The game will also add additional actions, a Super Sonic mode and online rankings. The SEGA Ages collection has been entirely developed by M2 for Nintendo Switch and often feature exclusive features.
