Yeah I don’t think this has happened before. We now have a trailer for the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog 2 movie releasing in April 2022 and the upcoming new Sonic Team game, now named Sonic Frontiers.
The world’s favorite blue hedgehog is back for a next-level adventure in SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2. After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is eager to prove he has what it takes to be a true hero. His test comes when Dr. Robotnik returns, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a globe-trotting journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands. From the filmmakers behind The Fast and the Furious and Deadpool, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2 stars James Marsden, Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, and Jim Carrey returning, alongside new additions Shemar Moore, with Idris Elba as the voice of Knuckles, and Colleen O’Shaughnessey as the voice of Tails.
Yeah that movie trailer is pretty hype with you know who at the end in case to not spoil and with Tyson Hesse again consulting, it’s clear they wanted to make sure to avoid any design mistakes. And who can not notice the Sonic Adventure references? (Two of them at least!). We definitely have a lot to look forward to with where this leads.
The new Sonic Frontiers reveal wasn’t quite as palpable. Sonic Team has a lot to promise here and so far the trailer doesn’t offer too much in the way of gameplay but with the game still about a year away, we surely will see much much more.
