5 things that should be in the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 movie

Metal Sonic, Shadow, Albert Robotnik, and – yes – even Amy Rose. Here’s what we want to see in Sonic’s future adventures. Let’s not mince words: Sonic’s cinematic adventures are now significant. Impossible to ignore, even. Sonic 2 is a great movie, but it’s also gone on to become the highest-grossing film adaptation of a game ever. And you know what? It’s deserved. Beyond just creating a couple of good big-screen adventures, the Sonic movies have done a convincing job of creating a new version of the Sonic canon; a universe it’s easy to become invested in the expansion of. With…

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 film is now the top-grossing video game adaptation of all time

It broke the record set by the first film. SEGA has announced Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has surpassed $331.64 million at the box office worldwide, surpassing the $319.71 million record set by the previous film.

It sure looks like Sonic 3 won’t have its original soundtrack in Sonic Origins. Here’s why

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 has one of the most classic and notable soundtracks in video game history. But chances are, that full soundtrack won’t be present in the new version of the game included in the upcoming Sonic Origins compilation release. Will Sonic Origins contain some choice tracks from the original Sonic 3 release? I had been hoping that Sega might’ve resolved the issues around this soundtrack for this release, like many Sonic fans and game history nerds. The soundtrack has seemingly kept Sonic 3 from being re-released for many years now – so seeing it finally coming back seemed…

Sonic Frontiers is “still set to come out this holiday” despite only having one trailer

With more news set to arrive “soon.” While we’ve only received one actual trailer for it, Sonic Frontiers is still apparently planned for a release this coming winter holiday. This year might not be moving quite as fast as everyone’s favourite hedgehog, but it is steadily getting closer to the holiday season (sorry for reminding everyone it’s May now). But the holidays themselves apparently aren’t struggling to keep up with the hog. As spotted by Nintendo Life, Sega of America’s social media manager Katie Chrzanowski provided a very brief update into the state of Sonic Frontiers, saying that news will…

This is already more than the original Sonic the Hedgehog film from 2020, and makes it the highest grossing video game movie of all time.

During that same interview, Sega talked more about its “Super Game” projects, confirming that it will be more than one game and some of them could involve streaming and cloud gaming.

Sonic 2 cements it: the hedgehog’s transformation to film is the best video games have ever managed

With the sequel, Sonic has made the most successful jump from games to films ever. If you’d have told me that I’d be sitting in a screening of a second Sonic the Hedgehog film, on opening day, and hear the end of the film greeted with cheering easily as loud as those I heard at the closing of a midnight screening of Avengers Endgame, I’d never have believed you. If you’d told me it after that disastrous first trailer for the first Sonic movie, I’d have had you sectioned. And yet, here we are: it happened. I’m really glad I…

Total Warhammer 3’s next patch will slow the Souls race

At the heart of Total War: Warhammer 3 is an extremely relatable struggle to murder four members of the monarchy, claim their souls, and cash them in so you can meet a really big bear. I would like to meet a big bear. I’m willing to do a lot to meet a really big bear. But many players have felt that this ‘Souls race’ forces the game into an unpleasant and uninteresting shape. Thankfully, the devs have plans for the next patch which they say should “make the Souls race less urgent”. Read more
