Sonic Panel For SXSW 2019 Confirmed!

Yesterday we brought you the news that SXSW were teasing a Sonic related announcement.

Well that announcement has just been made and we can now reveal that there will be another Sonic Panel at this years SXSW! The initial details for the panel are as follows.

Date/Time: March 16, 2019, from 1:00PM to 2:00PM.

Panellists:

  • Aaron Webber (SEGA of America),
  • Jasmin Hernandez (SEGA of America),
  • Jun Senoue (SEGA),
  • Takashi Iizuka (SEGA of America)

Nothing has been confirmed or even teased with regards to announcements, but… and I stress this is my pure speculation here…

I’d like to think that since the panel is close to TSR’s release, there will be some new information on that, especially since Jun is… if you’ll excuse the pun… instrumental with the music for that game.

Jasmin Hernandez was also the production manager for Sonic Mania Adventures, could get confirmation of Season 2?

And you know that with Aaron and Iizuka on the panel, Aaron will do all he can to pry any secrets from Mr Iizuka on the day!

What do you think? What do you think will be announced or talked about, let us know in the comments.

  1. Expected:

    – Sonic Racing
    – teaser for the next Sonic game

    Nice Surprises:

    – movie teaser
    – a 2D Sonic game in the works. We know that 3D Sonic is a mainstay, but after Mania, will SEGA continue Sonic’s journey in 2D?

  2. With Jasmin there, I could only speculate a new animation project, but I’m guessing (hoping) this one will be tied to a new 2d title like adventures was. There will be an obvious focus on TSR first and foremost, but interested to hear if there’s a 2nd reveal, as having their cartoon animation head on the panel is…suspicious…
