Ever wonder what Blaze the Cat gets up to when she isn’t searching for the sol emeralds or going on high seas adventures? Well, the Japanese Sonic 20th Twitter account and Sonic Channel gave us a look and it’s…paperwork and tea, apparently!
According to the tweet, in times of peace Blaze spends time at the castle of the “Sol Empire,” busying herself with public affairs, and sometimes relaxes with lukewarm tea prepared by the guards. Take a look at the Sonic Channel artwork and a twitter translation of the description below!
Indian summer with calm waves. Blaze is busy with public affairs at the castle of the Sol Empire. Peace continues in the empire, but Blaze's princess responsibilities have not disappeared. The lukewarm tea brewed by the guards is a moment of relaxation for her.★ Thank you for your work! [Channel staff]
This art is interesting for a few reasons. Aside from giving us a rare glimpse at Blaze’s world (a place we’ve only seen once in the games), it also seemingly confirms that the version of Blaze’s world from the IDW comics is canon to the games. This includes the Sol Empire, the castle, and koalas being a prolific species beyond the islands we see in Sonic Rush Adventure. Although, I am beginning to wonder about the absence of a certain rambunctious raccoon girl in this stuff.
