Here’s today’s full announcement with all of the relevant details:

Sonic Prime

Update: Official announcement added below. Sonic Prime will have 24 episodes, and the press release states: “Sonic’s adventure is about more than a race to save the universe, it’s a journey of self-discovery and redemption.”


Original: Last month, we heard that Netflix is hard at work on a new 3D animated series for Sonic the Hedgehog. The news was officially announced today and we have an actual title as well.

Sonic Prime is the name of the upcoming Netflix show. It’s set to debut sometime in 2022.

Unfortunately, actual details surrounding Sonic Prime are mostly unknown. SEGA, WildBrain, and Man of Action are all working on the series.

Hollow Knight: Silksong

Team Cherry is hard at work on Hollow Knight: Silksong, the follow-up to the developer’s acclaimed action-adventure game. Eventually, there’ll come a time when the studio’s focus shifts to a different project entirely. And in fact, it’s something that Team Cherry is already thinking about ever so slightly.

Co-directors Ari Gibson and William Pellen commented on what’s next in the latest issue of EDGE. When asked if the team will be taking a break after Silksong, Gibson stated:

If Super Mario is any indication, there’s a good chance that Nintendo will be celebrating the 35th anniversary of Zelda this year. The very first game debuted on February 21, 1986, so the big milestone is only about a month away. When Nintendo is done celebrating Super Mario’s anniversary after March, perhaps that’s when the focus will shift to Zelda.

There are a couple of things to consider for Zelda. First, Nintendo previously celebrated the series for 25 years in 2011. That gave us new games with Skyward Sword, Ocarina of Time 3D, and Four Swords Anniversary Edition. The symphony concerts also really started to take off that year. Nintendo sprinkled around a decent amount of merchandise as well.

Going back to Super Mario, we’ve seen how Nintendo celebrated the series’ 35th anniversary. There have been lots of different things happening between new games, tie-ins with other Nintendo titles, products, and events.

Now thinking about what’s in store for Zelda’s 35th anniversary, what are your expectations? Do you think we’ll be getting Breath of the Wild 2 this year? Could Nintendo bring past entries in the series for Switch? What do you think could happen outside of games? Let us know in the comments below.

Donkey Kong 64

More than 20 years after its original release, a new secret of sorts has been found in Donkey Kong 64. Fans have discovered a hidden developer code that, when the player goes through a series of inputs, allows entry into a level with a lower than normal amount of Golden Bananas.

Twitter user tjballaam originally passed along the news. The Cutting Room Floor offers further insight, including the code itself:
