"This is a franchise, and it has to be great"
A few months ago, Sonic fans were disappointed once again when Paramount Pictures put out the first trailer for the hedgehog's upcoming movie. Following almost unanimous backlash, primarily due to the main character's design, the decision was quickly made to delay the film and take Sonic back to the...
Back in 2017, SEGA released two new games in its most iconic franchise: Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces. While the quality between the pair wasn't exactly consistent, it was an impressive year for a series that, despite everything, continues to sell in droves. It seems as though Sonic Team might be plotting a similar approach when the...
Breathe a sigh of relief
Well, there we have it: the Sonic the Hedgehog movie has been delayed to February 2020 following the severe backlash to the character design of everyone's favourite speedy, blue mascot. Director Jeff Fowler took to Twitter to announce the delay, which sees the film pushed back four months from its original late 2019...
"The message is loud and clear"
Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll no doubt have seen the debut trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. At the very least, a few stills from the video will have likely cropped up in your social media feeds. The reaction to the trailer has been almost entirely negative, and funnily enough, the biggest...
We've been waiting for this moment to arrive, and perhaps surprisingly, it hasn't left us disappointed. There has been much concern over the blue blur's design, and while it isn't good news in that department, this trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie is actually okay. It's self-aware, clearly isn't taking itself seriously, and looks to...
Gotta go cast
Yes, a live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie is in production, and the cast is starting to trickle out online. The film is set to star Ben Schwartz in the titular role, a comedic actor famous for his parts in Parks and Recreation and House of Lies. He also plays Dewey Duck in the recent DuckTales cartoon, so he'll have had some...
Sonic Mania might update the old Sonic formula for a modern audience, but it's also a giant throwback to the Mega Drive days. Back in the 90s, it was common for games to be rife with cheat codes, an almost extinct way to change up the game by enabling things like infinite lives, or spawning in items you shouldn't have access to. As it...
A whole lot more for less
Sonic Mania Plus is out tomorrow, bringing the original game back to store shelves with a raft of extra content, such as long lost characters, Mighty and Ray. The wonderfully retro platformer leans heavily into 90s nostalgia, and the above new commercial for the game...
Oops, I did it again
Oh, Walmart. You're not having the best of luck when it comes to games, are you? Following on from the huge Walmart Canada leak that seemingly outed several unnanounced games - including RAGE 2, which
Gotta go fast
This is one press release we weren't expecting to receive today. SEGA has teamed up with PUMA to produce two Sonic the Hedgehog themed pairs of sneakers in the RS-0 range -- one based on the Blue Blur himself, and the other drawing inspiration from his arch nemesis. The blue pair features rings and Green Hill Zone details that wrap...
Sonic Mania, the wonderful 2D platformer from last year, is getting an expansion this summer, and SEGA has just narrowed down the launch to 17th July 2018. Sonic Mania Plus includes the standard game, two new playable characters named Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel (who old-school Sonic fans may recognise), Encore stages...
Now removed by SEGA
A sizeable update for Sonic Mania was released on PlayStation 4 in the UK last night, much to the surprise of fans. It seems that SEGA accidentally launched the patch early, as access to it has now been removed. Of course, that didn't stop a handful of people from updating the much loved classic style Sonic title, and there are a...
Following on from the UK toy maker Zappies mentioning a brand new Sonic racing title is in the works, another toy manufacturer has joined the conversation. Diamond Select Toys also passed comment on the rumoured game, adding a little extra fuel to the fire. The company was present at the New York Toy Fair, where a spokesperson told an...
Gotta go fast
Last week, we heard that SEGA will be hosting a Sonic the Hedgehog panel during SXSW in March. The publisher has teased that we'll be treated to a look at what's next for the Blue Blur, and with the highs of Sonic Mania and the lows of Sonic Forces, we're very curious to find out what the future holds for the mascot. One thing we...
Gotta go fast
Sonic the Hedgehog’s 2017 was more topsy-turvy than Green Hill Zone. With the outstanding Sonic Mania, SEGA released arguably the best entry in the series in eons – only to follow it up with the downright dismal Sonic Forces. What, then, is next for the Blue Blur? We won’t have to wait long to find out, as the Japanese publisher...
Aaron Webber antics, we presume
Ever since public relations guy Aaron Webber has returned to SEGA, Sonic the Hedgehog's social media accounts have played host to a selection of memes, self-aimed jokes, and, now, even a video of some of Shia LaBeouf's infamous motivation. Keep in mind that this was posted on the official Sonic the Hedgehog YouTube...
Sonic the Hedgehog used to be king of the platforming castle, but the blue blur's long since fallen from grace. There have been some decent recent titles in SEGA's flagship series – the excellent Sonic Generations immediately springs to mind – but there's also been some trash. Perhaps the financially challenged firm needs to...
SEGA's mascot, Sonic The Hedgehog, has been awarded the first annual Outstanding Contribution award by the Golden Joysticks
We are so excited that Sonic has been awarded the first-ever Outstanding Contribution Award at the Golden Joysticks, Sonic brand director David Corless said. In todays ever changing market its rare for a character to last for 5 years let alone 20. And thats..
Dear Sonic The Hedgehog, We know our relationship is not always the best
Sometimes you get on our nerves. You need to stop hiding behind all that bravado, and show your true self. We know you're sweet and innocent behind that too-cool-for-school exterior, you just need to let people see it. Sometimes we wonder if you got in with the wrong crowd. Seriously, we wish you never made friends at all..

Sonic The Hedgehog (2006) is widely considered one of the worst games on PlayStation 3
We're big fans of Sonic and SEGA games in general, but even we have to admit that the early PS3 title was shoddy at best. Having said that, we've already committed to playing through the game again. Why? Trophies. The game mysteriously appeared on this morning's...
