It's been a hot minute since we got a brand new Sonic game. Sonic Forces was the last proper title from developer Sonic Team, although the Genesis-inspired Sonic Mania has also added to the series in recent years. Now though, a new Sonic adventure is upon us.
Well, sort of. While we're waiting for Sonic Team to release Sonic Frontiers, everyone's favourite blue hedgehog (well, the only blue hedgehog we all know) has arrived in Roblox. And yep, it's an official SEGA release, technically.
The game is actually called Sonic Speed Simulator, so as you'd expect, it's all about zooming through levels at breakneck speeds. There are "multiple unique worlds" included, and further updates are expected too.
Sonic Speed Simulator is the fastest game in Roblox and features everyone’s favorite speedster, Sonic the Hedgehog. In the game, players will be able to level up and gain speed by running through multiple unique worlds while racing against friends to earn rewards, including pets that can increase stats and Sonic character skins. Players can also expect regular weekly updates and will earn an exclusive community Sonic the Hedgehog skin once the game has received 10,000 “likes” from players.
This writer will be the first to admit he doesn't fully understand what Roblox actually is, and that's on me. However, this Sonic game actually looks pretty decent, so maybe it's enough to tie some fans over until Sonic Frontiers later this year?
What do you make of this? Would you load up Roblox to try Sonic Speed Simulator? Let us know in the comments.
