New Sonic Boom Characters Revealed

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:

Sonic Boom Introduces New Character, Sticks

People have already seen what Sonic and the gang will look like in the upcoming TV series Sonic Boom, but it turns out they’re not the only ones that are going to show up in CG 3D glory, because the series will also introduce a new character: Sticks.

The official description for Sticks is a jungle badger that is also Amy’s BFF, who has spent most of her life living alone in the wilderness. Sticks will be appearing in the Sonic Boom TV series, as well as the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS video games. You can expect her to appear in the merchandise as well.

Sonic Lost World Zelda Crossover Preview

There was a time when a Sonic and The Legend of Zelda crossover would have been impossible, but now that Nintendo and Sega are chums and Sonic and Mario have appeared in a single game several times, Sonic Lost World including a Legend of Zelda stage doesn’t seem surprising anymore. That doesn’t mean seeing Sonic speeding around a world while wearing Link’s clothes is any less awesome. If you need proof of this, you can check out IGN’s preview below:

Wreck-It-Ralph Joins Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed Cast

The antagonist-turned-protagonist of Disney/Pixar’s upcoming movie, Wreck-It-Ralph, might not be a real videogame character in the sense that the videogame he’s in was only made for the purpose of the movie, but that’s all going to change soon as the titular character will be included as one of the playable racers in the upcoming sequel to Sega’s popular kart racer – Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed, making him a real videogame character on an established videogame franchise.
