After 140 million games sold and a successful animated series, the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise is gearing up for its biggest year yet. In anticipation of his latest adventure, SEGA will be revealing characters for the brand-new Sonic Boom universe, which will include the first ever CG animated TV series debuting on Cartoon Network, a line of video games for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, as well as an extensive merchandising program. The list of the newest characters that will be introduced in both the video game and animated series include:
Perci: Perci is beautiful yet tough as nails; her street smarts and tough exterior allow her to be ready to protect the town when the time comes.
Salty: Salty is the self-proclaimed captain of the ocean. He is overly confident in his domain and does not care to take the opinions of others around him into consideration. His egocentric attitude is apparent, even though his words and actions are not always justified. In Salty’s world, it’s his way or the seaway!
Mayor Fink: Mayor Fink is a typical politician – a fast talker out of both sides of his mouth. Loud and confident, he feels in control no matter what the situation, even if he has no idea what he’s doing.
Fastidious Beaver: Fastidious Beaver is a fussy, uptight beaver with a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
To give you a glimpse of the upcoming TV series, SEGA has released a new behind the scenes trailer that includes interviews with key people behind the project, as well as footage that are meant for both fans and curious newcomers alike.
