Knuckles live-action series release date

A release date for the Knuckles live-action series has been shared along with the first trailer.

The new live-action series follows Knuckles “on a hilarious and action-packed journey of self-discovery as he agrees to train Wade as his protégé and teach him the ways of the Echidna warrior.” There’ll be six episodes in total, and everything takes place between the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 films.

SEGA wants Sonic to surpass Mario

In an interview posted on its website, SEGA executive director and Osamu Ohashi was asked about how Sonic will be developed in the future. That led Ohashi to mention how the goal is for the franchise to surpass Mario.

He pointed out how SEGA respects Mario, but never actually achieved the goal of surpassing him. Not only does the company want Sonic to be played worldwide, but also for the movies to do better and for Sonic to be featured at Universal Studios.

Sonic Superstars DLC new game 2024

Information has seemingly come to light regarding SEGA’s plans for Sonic the Hedgehog, including DLC for Sonic Superstars and a new game entirely for 2024.

A brand and licensing presentation from SEGA of America was spotted that goes over the company’s overall plans for the franchise. Sonic Superstars, which is about to launch on Switch, will supposedly be getting DLC at some point next year. SEGA is also apparently planning a brand new Sonic game entirely for the 2024 holiday season, though the presentation doesn’t go into specifics aside from mentioning a “prologue” planned a few months before launch.

We have a look at the relevant slide below. Note that the presentation’s validity has not been confirmed – which is why we’re marking this as a rumor.

Shadow Classic Sonic

Any hopes of Shadow appearing in the Classic Sonic the Hedgehog series have been dashed, at least for now.

Shadow is actually the favorite character of Sonic Team creative officer Takashi Iizuka. Unfortunately though, it seems he can only appear in the Modern series.

Switch Split Pad Compact Sonic

HORI is adding two more designs to its lineup of Switch Split Pad Compacts, with Sonic the Hedgehog and Pac-Man now getting the spotlight.

As a reminder, the Split Pad Compact is an updated version of the Split Pad Pro with a focus on handheld player. It features full-size analog sticks and a d-pad plus turbo functions and assignable rear buttons. However, it does not support motion controls, HD Rumble, NFC, and the IR camera.

Sonic Central 2023

SEGA will host a new Sonic Central 2023 presentation on June 23, the company announced. It will go live at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET / 4 PM in the UK / 5 PM in Europe.

The event will include a sneak peek of upcoming projects, partnerships, and event happenings in 2023. Sonic Superstars will likely be here, as could DLC for Sonic Frontiers.

The Sonic Central 2023 presentation will be live streamed on both YouTube and Twitch.


Sonic Knuckles series casting plot

Original (4/17): New details have surfaced about the live-action Knuckles series based on the recent Sonic the Hedgehog movies, including a couple of plot tidbits and the cast. Production has now kicked off in London.

Variety reports that the show is set between the events of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog 3. The site adds that Knuckles “agrees to train Wade as his protégé and teach him the ways of the Echidna warrior.”

Knuckles Sonic Nendoroid

Good Smile has provided an update on the Knuckles Nendoroid for Sonic the Hedgehog, including a release date and photos, plus pre-orders have opened.

The Nendoroid includes a few different eye parts – specifically the forward-facing, glancing right, and glancing left items. On top of that, you’ll get some mouth parts – namely grinning, closed, and gritted teeth. Also, it comes with the Chaos Emerald as an optional part. Also, since the product doesn’t stand on its own, you’ll want to use the stand that’s included.

Sonic the Hedgehog Tails Nendoroid

We previously heard about the Tails Nendoroid for Sonic the Hedgehog, and we now have news about the release date and pre-orders – but there are new photos as well.

Tails comes with the eye parts glancing right, glancing left, and happy. The mouth parts are smile with an open mouth and smile with a closed mouth. Finally, as for optional parts, you’ll be getting goggle, a wrench, and the Chaos Emerald.
