It was teased earlier this month that Sonic was getting the Minecraft treatment, and now it's randomly dropped today. Spoiler alert: It looks so good!
The Sonic the Hedgehog pack is available in the Minecraft store for 1340 credits. More than just a simple reskin, the DLC includes challenges, new zones, and the ability to utilise Sonic's classic platforming moves - all within Minecraft's blocky setting. Famous levels such as Green Hill Zones have been recreated, packed with secrets and available to play in co-op. Even some of the character's signature vehicles are available to use.
Sonic the Hedgehog races into Minecraft at supersonic speeds! Sprint, roll, and spring off enemies through iconic zones, with infinite gameplay. Master the thrilling abilities of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and more! Compete with friends for high scores. Unlock achievements, characters, new zones, and a challenging Eggman Mode! Includes 24 popular skins.
It's been a while since we've had a decent 3D Sonic game. Sonic Forces was a bit of a disappointment, and Sonic Generations is almost 10 years old. While we'll have to wait until next year for a fully fledged new title, this genuinely looks lovely, and maybe enough to scratch the itch we've all got for a brand new game.
