Sonic the Hedgehog News; 30 YEARS OF THE BLUE HEDGEHOG
We recently celebrated 30 years of Sonic the Hedgehog, the popular Sega mascot whose first video game came into our lives in 1991. To celebrate the company organized various events, made various announcements and launched various products for sale of the blue hedgehog.

Something of the most unexpected was the revelation of Sonic as a new VTuber, that is to say, a virtual youtuber. The character’s official Twitter account in Japan shared a video of the mascot thanking all the fans who participated in the events for his 30th anniversary.
THE BEGINNING OF SONIC VTUBER
This will surely not be the last time we see Sonic as VTuber, as Sega art director Kazuyuki Hoshino had already commented that the hedgehog would have a ‘new job’ on a kind of broadcast that was just being planned. They will surely use the VTuber form of him to keep giving news about their upcoming projects.
The 30 years of the hedgehog were marked by collaborations such as the one he had with Minecraft, new games that reached cell phones, new platforms and a symphonic concert that pleased many fans of the saga. If you are interested, you can enjoy it here.
It seems that Sonic will have a promising future as we recently had several news regarding his future in video games. The remastering of ‘Sonic Colors‘ is coming; the compilation of his first adventures in Sonic Origins and we also had the news that there will be a new Sonic video game, still unnamed, that will arrive in 2022.
Also let’s not forget that in 2020 the film based on the Sega character was so successful that we will soon have the sequel. As if that were not enough, there are also rumors that a theme park of the character is planned, also derived from the success of the film. Perhaps the next news related to this will be from the hedgehog himself on his YouTube channel.
