The fastest hedgehog on the planet is now celebrating his 25th birthday, and his present can’t be any cooler than this. Following the official announcement of LEGO Dimensions’ Game Developer and Producer, Doug Heder at last month’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Sonic The Hedgehog now finally makes his debut as TT Games revealed the new LEGO Dimensions Sonic The Hedgehog Level Pack (71244), scheduled to arrive sometime this Fall.
What a perfect birthday gift for the Blue Blur as LEGO honors him on his 25th anniversary! The said Level Pack comes with an awesome Sonic minifigure, with all the fine details such as his trademark running shoes and a very impressive headpiece. Set 71244 also comes with two brick-built vehicles: the Sonic Speedster and Tornado.
LEGO Dimensions Game Directors Arthur Parsons and James Mcloughlin came in with the announcement over Sonic’s 25th Anniversary Party which was streamed live over at Twitch channel. According to the powerhouse duo, LEGO’s toys-to-life kitchen is cooking up more surprises under Sonic’s franchise and understandably, they are quite mum on the details. Sonic’s YouTube channel has recently uploaded its official LEGO Dimensions trailer highlighting some of the cool things that Sonic can do once he enters the LEGO Dimensions portal. Watch this.
It’s great to see Sonic move and interact with the various worlds and characters of LEGO Dimensions, including a 2D game mode that pays tribute to the Blue Blur’s humble beginnings. Staying faithful in rendering Sonic’s abilities, his LEGO Dimensions character will also feature a Super Sonic mode once all seven Chaos Emeralds are collected throughout the game.
Looking forward, Sega also released a teaser trailer on what has been dubbed as Project Sonic 2017 – the latest journey that awaits Sonic and his friends. Project Sonic is expected to arrive sometime during the holidays in 2017, and will be available across all major gaming consoles.
With 16 new titles and licenses under its banner, LEGO Dimensions Series 2 is definitely a must have for any Dimensions fans, needless to say for all LEGO minifigure connoisseurs. Series 1 of Wave 6 which includes the Ghostbusters Story Pack (71242), Adventure Time Level Pack (71245), Adventure Time Team Pack (71246), Harry Potter Team Pack (71247), Missions Impossible Level Pack (71248), and The A-Team Fun Pack (71251) are now available for pre-order over at Wildcard Toys.
