It’s been 25 years of the Blue Blur zooming onto television sets across the world, and what better way to celebrate than with a new entry in the dashing series.
Announced during the anniversary celebration in Toyko, Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka confirmed that a new Sonic The Hedgehog game is currently in development. Not much is known about the game at this time, but more details will be announced at the Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary Party in San Diego next month.
The game has been not-so-subtly teased on the titular hedgehog’s infamous Twitter, as well as SEGA’s Aaron Webber commenting at SXSW: “If you’re looking forward to a game announcement—I’m not saying that there’s going to be a game announcement at this party, but you should probably come to this party.”
Besides the game announcement at Sonic’s birthday bash next month, the party is also going to feature the bands Hyper Potions and Crush 40, the former contributing music to numerous Sonic games in the past. The Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary Party, and the announcement of the new Sonic game, will be livestreamed on Twitch on July 22nd.
