Sonic the Hedgehog PS4 PlayStation 4 Announcements 1

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 is geeing up an SXSW panel which promises to include a “world-exclusive first look at what comes next” for the franchise.

It’s worth noting that there’s no explicit mention of any game announcements, so this event could comfortably play host to new comics, cartoons, or other merchandise. Having said that, high-profile SEGA of America employees like Aaron Webber and Takashi Iizuka will be in attendance, so it’s certainly possible we may see a new title announced.

The panel’s scheduled to take place on 16th March at 3:30PM CST, so all will be revealed in a little over a month.
