Sega launches Sonic Green Hill Zone candle

Apparently this is not a joke! You can now purchase a Sonic the Hedgehog collectable like no other… Specifically, a Sonic Green Hill Zone candle, courtesy of Sega. Whilst this has all the trappings of an April Fool, I can confirm that it is January, and this item is currently on sale in Sega’s online store for the slightly eye-watering […]

Is a Sonic Adventure remake on the cards?

I suppose we need to be cautious about reading too much into those “off the cuff” comments that people make in interviews, but this is the internet, and I am only too happy to fan the flames of speculative discourse. Kuu! Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka recently gave an interview to Retro Gamer in which he spoke about the development of […]

Sonic movie: Should Sonic the Hedgehog have fur?

Yes I was rather surprised about this. It’s fair to say that – when it comes to Sonic the Hedgehog – any announcement regarding an upcoming project is likely to incite a fair amount of venom. And I apologise for saying that, fellow Sonic fans – but it’s kind of true. Don’t feel bad. Like, I’m a lifelong Doctor Who fan, but I still […]

How to prevent the next Sonic game from sucking

I’m fairly sure that the question of ‘how to prevent the next Sonic the Hedgehog game from sucking’ is one that causes many sleepless nights in Tokyo, and indeed lots of flip-chart paper. And before anyone gets offended, when I talk about the next Sonic game I’m not referring to the upcoming Team Sonic Racing from Sumo Digital. I mean, yes it is technically a Sonic title, […]

Team Sonic Racing is officially delayed?

In news that is a little sad – but not altogether surprising – it seems that the upcoming Team Sonic Racing may have been delayed until 2019. The news (well, speculation) comes via a tweet from @SAAC_RUS who posted a snap from a booklet at a Russian gaming event. Буклет с рекламой игры #TeamSonicRacing с российской игровой выставки "Игромир". По какой-то […]

Team Sonic Racing story revealed; still no release date

Some interesting new details have emerged about the upcoming Team Sonic Racing from Sumo Digital. The game is currently slated for an ambiguous “winter 2018” – which is a tad worrying – but let’s remain optimistic that the blue hedgehog and his fellow anthropomorphs can make it to this year’s Christmas rush. Indeed, Sega is keen to keep building interest in […]

Should we be worried about Team Sonic Racing?

Things are very quiet on the Team Sonic Racing front. The last time I checked Wikipedia, there was still no solid release date for the upcoming kart game from UK-based Sumo Digital. This surprises me, given that the game is currently slated to arrive sometime in Q4 2018, which is anytime after October 1st. So when I ask, “should we be worried […]

Kuu! The best and worst Sonic games

There are few things that Sonic the Hedgehog fans feel more passionately about than judging the quality of the troubled mascot’s adventures. None of us can agree on the best and worst Sonic games; I for one think that Sonic 3 and Knuckles is a thing of beauty. One of my friends thinks it’s “absolute garbage.” How to decide once and for all? […]

The heartbreak of Sonic Adventure 2

This is probably the understatement of the century, but many of us develop emotional attachments to video games. It’s probably what fans the flames of nostalgia when we get to see ‘re-imagined’ versions of Crash Bandicoot or Spyro the Dragon on our screens; I certainly feel a pang of Something when I see Tomb Raider 2 load up, or even when I […]

Green Hill will be in the Sonic movie!

Here’s a fun bit of news. A leaked photo from the filming of the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie confirms that the much-loved Green Hill Zone will be featured as one of the story’s locations! Check out this tweet from Twitter user @twip98… The Sonic Movie is saved pic.twitter.com/9xu9gsdlc9 — Ben (TWIP) (@twip98) August 2, 2018 I find this really funny considering […]

Best Sonic game ever? It’s top marks for Sonic Mania Plus

Is Sonic Mania Plus the best Sonic game ever? Well – let’s come back to that. It’s certainly the highest reviewed Sonic game in the last 25 years, which is amazing news. Check out this tweet from the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account… With a 90 Metascore on Nintendo Switch, Sonic Mania Plus is now the highest-rated Sonic game in 25 years. Thank […]

Team Sonic Racing: There’s no ‘I’ in Team?

With (both) Sonic Forces fans itching for more platforming action, the next game in the blue hedgehog series might not be quite what they’d envisaged. Team Sonic Racing is scheduled to release in Q4 of 2018 and, as the name suggests, it’ll be in a different league to previous titles Sonic Mania and, ahem, Sonic Boom. Of course, racing isn’t an entirely new concept in the […]
