You’ve seen me go on and on for a good while now about how Roger Craig Smith’s voicework as Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the many highlights of the upcoming Sonic Colours. Today, I’m proud to say that you will finally get a chance to see what I’m talking about – SEGA has kindly released the first ever cutscene trailer for the game, complete with fourth wall-breaking gags.
This video is special because it has been handed down as a joint-exclusive between The Sonic Stadium and our very close friends Sonic Wrecks and Sonic Retro. That’s why you see our website names featured in the video – so you know where you saw it first!
Below, you can watch the cutscene that we are collectively calling “Tails and the Translator,” since Sonic Colours’ scenes aren’t officially titled. It’s the fourth one you get to see when playing the game, and features Tails tinkering with his Miles Electric handheld to try and make sense of Yakker’s garbled pleas for help. You’ll notice that the relationship between Sonic and Tails has grown here – Tails is so used to Sonic’s heroics that anything he does almost seems ordinary, while Sonic openly ribs Tails in a way that only best friends can.
Enough of this – hit play! And voice your comments in the usual place. That’s the comments box below, in case you were wondering. Please note that this video, obviously, may contain spoilers. You have been duly warned.
