The event may include news about the upcoming film Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which is currently in development. The sequel follows the successful release of the first live-action film, released in 2020. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 isn’t scheduled to be released until April 2, 2022, but so far, little additional cast and story information has yet to be revealed.
Sega previously announced a new 3D animated series called Sonic Prime earlier this year. Sega and WildBrain are working together to produce a 24 episode for Netflix, which is planned to launch next year. Sonic and his friends will work together to save the universe while also learning some important life lessons along the way.
Sonic Central doesn’t seem to be releasing any more information about tomorrow’s stream at this time. Fans of the franchise will have to wait until the 30th anniversary news is revealed.
The announcement was followed by a brand new video, “Unstoppable,” that follows the series. The video celebrates the series and how fans have continued to enjoy it throughout the decades. SEGA thanks fans for their support throughout the years and hopes for another “Unstoppable” 30 years into the future.
