SEGA recently made some big announcements to celebrate 30 years of Sonic the Hedgehog in the recent Sonic Central. I’ve included the entire video below, but you can read about some of the highlights. First, a virtual symphony will be taking place where fans will be able to listen to iconic tracks like never before on June 23 for absolutely free.
Sonic will also be a costume you can use in the upcoming game Tokyo 2020 which launches on June 22. Two Point Hospital is also getting various Sonic-themed outfits and décor to enjoy on July 30. Lost Judgement will even have Sonic the Fighters playable when you go to SEGA arcade cabinets in-game starting September 24.
In addition, the super speed 3D platformer Sonic Colors: Ultimate will be releasing on September 7. This is a remaster of the 2010 Wii game that fans and critics enjoyed. The game will be available on Nintendo Switch, PC (via Epic Games Store), PS4, and Xbox One.
