He voiced Sonic in Sonic Generations and two years later in Sonic Lost World. 2014 started what was probably the peak of his time as Sonic being the Boom franchise. Voicing in Rise of Lyric, Shattered Crystal, but more notably the TV Show. In 2017, Smith played as Sonic in Sonic Forces. Finally, in 2019, he appeared in Team Sonic Racing.
