Yesterday the Sonic Central livestream shared a bunch of Sonic the Hedgehog news. They’re putting on a free virtual Sonic symphony on June 23, which is Sonic’s birthday.
The game Sonic Colors is also getting revamped and rereleased as Sonic Colors: Ultimate, and will be playable on Switch, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. It comes out September 7 and is currently available for pre-order.
None other than the voice of Sonic, Roger Craig Smith, shared the news that Sonic is also getting some short form animations, starting with Sonic Colors: Rise of the Wisps. This was followed by a preview of the first episode, with the promise the actual animation will debut sometime this summer.
The old games Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Sonic CD will also be receiving a compilation and will be playable on modern platforms.
There will also be a brand-new Sonic game coming out in 2022, and a short teaser was played.
