As we have recently pointed out in the ranking list of every Sonic the Hedgehog game to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the founding of Sonic the Hedgehog, fast blue games have a strong staying power. Despite losing the ring many times, he managed to keep up with the trend and is stronger than ever. Therefore, when Sonic enters his fourth decade, it shouldn’t be surprising to hear that Sonic may be a Vtuber—that is, if you can trust Sega’s art director Kazuyuki Hoshino’s report.

As covered Ryokutya2089 (Thank you​​, Silicone), the success of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie clearly prompted Sega to develop a virtual Sonic streaming plan. There is also a vague mention (actually a “dream”, so use the maximum amount of salt) that may be along the line of the Super Nintendo World.

You may be familiar with Ryokutya2089 as the source of various tidbits collected from printed publications in Japan, although the exact source of these quotations-which also includes comments by Sonic producer Takashi Iizuka-has not been confirmed, but it is likely to be Famitsu 30th Anniversary Special In the forthcoming July issue, about Sega’s blue blood mascot.

Sega’s search to capitalize on Sonic’s success in this anniversary year is not surprising-as evidenced by many birthday greetings on social media, Blur Blu is an enduring and well-loved character, and very It’s nice to see the little guy try and enter a new field of entertainment. However, given his uneven success rate on new projects, we will reserve our judgment on whether Sonic is a VTuber a good idea or just Sega catching up with the trend.

Of course, the virtual interaction Mario took place many years ago, when Charles Martinet, the voice actor of the plumber, spoke to the participants of the trade show from behind the screen, and Mario spoke to them with his face. As Sega renews its concept of the 21st century streaming world, the company seems to be doing what Nintendo did not do again—keep it there.No, what are they just doing Nintendo!

Will you watch the live broadcast of Sonic the Hedgehog himself? Will he join the jumbled team of his companions and followers? Please tell us below.
