Sonic will be returning to San Diego this year with a special 25th anniversary event hosted by SEGA. According to Aaron Webber, who revealed the event at the end of a Sonic panel at Austin’s South By South West festival, the event will be held at the House of Blues in San Diego on July 22, on the same weekend as San Diego Comic Con.
Webber hinted at potential game announcements at the event, as well as a look at “the future of Sonic.” He also revealed that the bands Crush 40 and Hyper Potions will be playing there, as well as exclusive 25th anniversary merchandise.
Tickets are on sale now here.
UPDATE: Webber has revealed on his twitter that the entire event will be live streamed:
@blueblur1992 Most definitely. Be there in person if you can, though!
