Play Sonic with Your Face in a New TikTok Filter

If, you know, you wanted to do that for some reason.

On Monday, the official Japanese SEGA TikTok account revealed a new Sonic-themed filter for the platform, or the least efficient way to possibly play a Sonic game:

@segaofficial

ソニックに走ってもらったよ!曲がノリノリで楽しい♡(顔は必死)みんなはクリアできるかな!??!#SEGA #セガ #ソニック #Sonic #ソニックラン #tiktokでゲーム中

♬ オリジナル楽曲 – SEGA Official – SEGA Official

As presented, Sonic will react to your movement in the video, such as looking down and up, to complete a 60-meter course.

I was unable to test this at time of writing, so I cannot report if this is region-restricted to Japanese users or not.

Thanks to Dodger24848 for the news tip!

  1. Honestly people wouldn’t miss that much. Feels relatively cheap just by simply looking at that janky movement and those reused assets alone.

    1. I mean, keep in mind, it’s also a TikTok filter. They’re not selling it as a game-game. It’s a novelty on a platform that exists to share novelty.

      1. Yeah I do know that it’s filter too but my point still stands though. I wasn’t expecting much of it regardless since this is TikTok we’re talking about here. At least it’s amusing stuff to watch.
