Minecraft Sonic DLC: It’s Official and Out Now!

For those who don’t like gentle curves.

At the end of June’s Sonic Central presentation, Sega teased Sonic coming to Minecraft. Today, we’ve got our first look and our first details. And our first release– it’s now. The DLC is out now. You can go get it. Or so the trailer says.

While tricky to find exact details without actually owning a copy of Minecraft, the official blog post bills this as an infinite 3D runner featuring loops, springs rings, chao, and badniks across Green Hill, Chemical Plant, Sky Sanctuary, and Tails’ workshop. Players can use skins of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Shadow, and plenty of others.

UPDATE: The pack, available within the Minecraft in-game Marketplace, is priced at $7.99 (USD), or 1340 Minecoins. The pack includes one Minecraft world (as seen in the trailers), and 24 skins including:

Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Dr. Eggman, Amy Rose, Big, Cream, E-102 Gamma, Shadow, Rouge, E-123 Omega, Chaos, Vector, Charmy, Espio, Mighty, Silver, Blaze, Ray, Infinite, Mecha Sonic (Sonic & Knuckles), Metal Sonic, Metal Knuckles (Sonic R), and Werehog Sonic.

  1. Not gonna lie, seeing such obsucre characters like Mecha Sonic and Metal Knuckles is pleasant surprise here.

  2. Meh, this doesn’t tempt me to play Minecraft but I have a friend who plays it, and also loves Sonic so maybe I watch him play the Sonic pack sometime.

    I do however agree with Mecha Name that its a pleasant surprise seeing Mecha Sonic and Metal Knuckles in there.

  3. Mecha Sonic, Metal Knuckles, Big, Gamma, and last of all the most important for me CREAM THE RABBIT MY FAV SONIC CAHRCTER I going back to playing Minecraft

  4. This is exactly how I thought Sonic would be in Minecraft. Lots of Sonic character skins. Very impressive representations of Green Hill, Chemical Plant and Sky Sanctuary (and Tails’ workshop) The designer of these levels did a fantastic job of bringing them into the world of Minecraft, but, in my opinion, I personally think it would have been neat to see other levels represented, just for something different. Yes, of course I get Green Hill, but how about Marble Zone with the lava. Mystic Cave could have been a good underground level to represent Sonic 2. What about Icecap for Sonic 3 or Sandopolis from Sonic and Knuckles?

  5. Mecha Sonic and Metal Knuckles are quite the surprise. Also, as someone who doesn’t play Minecraft I don’t really understand this at all. I assume the skins are just for changing appearance, but the trailer has a lot of stuff I didn’t think you could do in Minecraft. Can the Sonic characters mine and stuff or is it just the one world where you run around an apparently infinite level?
