Sonic Prime: The Netflix series welcomes a new hero


news culture Sonic Prime: The Netflix series welcomes a new hero

For a few days now, Sonic, our favorite blue hedgehog, hasn’t stopped talking about him. Except that today it’s not to present us with its next title Sonic Frontiers, but to reveal a little more about the Netflix series Sonic Prime.

A new hero appears

After formalizing during Sonic Central the presence of Shadow, the dark-eyed hedgehog, the Netflix series Sonic Prime is rushing back to the front of the stage during Netflix Geeked Week to introduce us to a new hero: Big.

Indeed, it is the turn of the big cat Big, a friend of Amy, to enter Sonic Prime as confirmed by the extract available above. He can be seen spinning in place as Sonic speeds past him. He is also accompanied by his friend Froggy the frog.

As a reminder, Big the Cat was introduced in the game Sonic Adventure, the game released in 1998. Recently, he also had an important role in Team Sonic Racing.

A series for the youngest

Even if fans of the blue hedgehog are above all those who discovered the saga on MegaDrive, note that Sonic Prime is a series aimed at the youngest. In any case, this was specified by SEGA and Man of Entertainment, the producers of the animated series.

The 24-episode animated adventure, aimed at kids ages 6-11, will star the video game’s renowned “Blue Lightning” on an explosive adventure where the fate of a strange new multiverse rests in his gloved hands. Sonic’s adventure is more than a race against time to save the universe, it’s a journey of self-discovery and redemption.

For the moment, Sonic Prime does not have a precise release date, but the series should still land on Netflix by the end of the year.

About the Summer Game Fest

What is Summer Game Fest?

No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcements of video games to come this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now unmissable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured stunning images from Elden Ring; so inevitably, the third iteration raises high expectations.

When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?

The Summer Game Fest is this Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m. The show will once again be followed by a Day of the Devs session devoted to the independent scene.

What is the program for Summer Game Fest 2022?

Among the games not to miss, there is in particular the heir to Dead Space, The Callisto Protocol, which shows us its first gameplay images. For its part Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 presents us with its first level. Also on the program: Gotham Knights, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, the first game from Aaryn Flynn’s studio (ex-Bioware) Nightingale, the JRPG One Piece Odyssey, the free-to-play Warframe or even Planet of Lana. Geoff Keighley further announced: “We have a few new game announcements for this show and hopefully a few surprises if all goes well. But it’s definitely a show that mostly focuses on things that are foretold.”
