SEGA Releases 2 New Sonic Double-Packs for Nintendo Switch In North America

Tuesday, October 27th, 2020

SEGA has launched two new combo packs for the Nintendo Switch in North America, both including a selection of Sonic games – or at the very least, games featuring Sonic.

One pack gives you the sublime Sonic Mania (seemingly without the Plus DLC, oddly) and Team Sonic Racing. There’s also a pack that pairs up Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD (which featured Classic Sonic as an unlockable character) and Sonic Forces.

The packs are available for $39.99 each. The PR we received doesn’t mention a European release (seeing as this comes straight from SEGA of America’s Sonic PR), but given previous packs have released on our shores we’d expect these will be showing up too.

Sonic Comes to Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout in Costume Form, Available from October 14th

Monday, October 12th, 2020

Sonic has found his way into yet another game, and this time it’s the summer’s smash-hit battle royale – Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, from British studio Mediatonic.

Revealed via a Mediatonic vs SEGA Europe livestream to mark SEGA’s 60th Anniversary, from this Wednesday you’ll be able to buy a costume of Sonic for your adorable Fall Guy bean. It doesn’t come in cheap though; you need 10 crowns for both halves of the costume (5 crowns for each half), and the main way of getting crowns is by being the last Fall Guy standing in a set of matches – which is far, far easier said than done. Fortunately Fall Guys’s recent Season 2 update has made it easier to accrue crowns by just playing the game, regardless of your victory tally, so any Sonic fans after this should probably get started on levelling up sooner rather than later.

The official PR is as follows:

Get ready for a supersonic brawl! SEGA® has teamed up with Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout developer Mediatonic to bring a Sonic the Hedgehog-inspired costume to the highly popular battle royale platformer’s Season 2 content.

 

Available starting Wednesday, October 14, Sonic fans can get their Fall Guys beans prepared for battle with a look modeled after the iconic hedgehog himself. The Sonic the Hedgehog costume is available for purchase in Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout Season 2 for 10 crowns.

Fall Guys is currently available on PC via Steam and Playstation 4.

Merchandise plans have been revealed to celebrate Sonic’s 30th Anniversary, via BleedingCool. In addition, we also have the rather snazzy 30th Anniversary logo.

A range of partners will be taking part in the festivities, including Funko, Jakks Pacific, Dark Horse Comics, FiGPiN, and G Fuel. Perhaps most notably, IDW Comics will be releasing a new comic series featuring an all new adventure from Sonic’s Classic counterpart; perhaps akin to Archie’s wildly popular Sonic Mega Drive series.

A full list is after the jump, again via Bleeding Cool: (more…)

Nintendo Switch Action Game Ninjala’s First In-Game Collaboration Event is with the Sonic the Hedgehog Series

Monday, August 24th, 2020

GungHo, developers of the Nintendo Switch multiplayer brawler Ninjala, have officially revealed the game’s first crossover event is inbound – and it’s with none other than Sonic the Hedgehog!

This news won’t actually come as a shock to most Sonic fans, seeing as this information got datamined before Ninjala was even officially released, thanks to the game’s numerous beta tests. All the same, it’s cool to see it confirmed, and now we’ll have to wait and see just what this collaboration entails. Or enknuckles.

This was announced in GungHo’s latest Ninjala Dev Diary, which you can watch here. When the Sonic collab will actually happen is still unknown, but with the official announcement now out there, we’d imagine it’ll be sooner rather than later.

Images of Unreleased Mega Drive Sonic Game “Treasure Tails” Released Online

Tuesday, August 18th, 2020

The first images of an unreleased Mega Drive Sonic spin-off called Treasure Tails have appeared online. These come directly from Craig Stitt who many may know as an artist on Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic Spinball. Stitt himself pitched the game back in February 1993. The game was meant to be a forced-perspective platform/puzzle/adventure game featuring Tails as the main playable character. It supposedly never made it to a playable state and the images seen in this article come from a VHS tape that Stitt have put together in 1995.

In addition to this discovery, the first concept images of Boomer the Turtle have also appeared. This was a character Stitt designed for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 as Sonic’s original sidekick before Tails was even conceived. The character was ultimately scrapped.

Also released is footage of another unreleased title that Craig Stitt pitched called Astropede. The game features a centipede protagonist that runs at high speeds through a stage that uses graphics from the then-unreleased Hidden Palace stage from Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Stitt had hopes that the character could exist as a part of Sonic’s Universe. Check out the footage from SEGAbits below:
