*holds hands up* I’ve tried, I promise you I have tried to find out as much as possible with this one, but I’m still at a bit of a loss when it comes to details and specifics. According to a handful or reports online. Sega have been holding a special Sonic event at Benz World. Not heard of Benz World? You know Mercedes Benz? Yes the car, they have a ‘Driving Experience Centre’ at a race course here in the UK. And, for some reason, Sega held a special day there.
Sega had a small presence there during this month in which they had face painting, showed off various Sonic products from the 2013 catalogue as well as Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. One of the more interesting products would be an unannounced Sonic Pinball game which you can see at the top.
According to the Mirror Online, at the end of the day children were given a certificate, a special medal and a goody bag to remind them of the day. The strange thing about this is, I cannot find any other information about it. Sega didn’t announce this in any way, even the Benz World website has no information at all about it. There’s been no advertising at all for it anywhere. In fact I can’t be sure if the event was name ‘Super Sonic Raceway Experience’ because there is no information on it anywhere other than a single blog and a random news article over at the Mirror.
There are however one or two very interesting this in the Mirrors article that have yet to be announced.
- Sonic pinball game.
- All Stars Racing Transformed Lunchbox
- Personalised cakes
- A bike!
But aside from those small details. I can’t tell you if this was a late ASRT promotion, a general products day, a special tie in with Mercedes over something, invite only product focus group day or heck, maybe Sonic has bought a car!
Anyone here go to this?
