SEGA has just announced that it will host a Sonic Central live stream on May 27 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog. As you might expect, the live stream will feature a first look at some of the “projects, partnerships, and events” regarding the company’s ever-popular Blue Blur mascot.
Interestingly, there might have been hints on what SEGA is going to showcase at the event. First, there was a leak about the development of a Sonic Color remaster from a German voice-over studio. Then a French retailer Sogamely listing suggested something about a new “Sonic collection” project. And lastly, Total Licensing, a magazine dedicated to licensing information, talked about the Sonic Prime Netflix animation series, Sonic Mania LEGO set, as well as a “music concert” that will feature several “special guests.” If you’re a Sonic fan, 2021 is definitely going to be a big year for you.
Where to Watch Sonic Central
Updated: Embedded YouTube live stream link
The Sonic Central live stream event will be held on May 27 at 09:00 AM PT or 12:00 PM ET on YouTube and Twitch. However, the official Sonic the Hedgehog Youtube channel hasn’t posted a scheduled live stream yet. Head over to the accounts through the links below and we will update this post once the link to the live stream is up. For now, though, you can watch the Unstoppable fan appreciation video below, showcasing a nostalgic look back at three decades of Sonic the Hedgehog, developed by creative agency Liquid+ Arcade.
Aside from the leaked information about the new Sonic remaster/collection (which might not be true), I suspect the Sonic Central live stream is going to reveal additional news about Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie (featuring Knuckles the Echidna) as well. What do you think? Tell us your hopes for the future of the World’s Fastest Hedgehog in the comments.
