New Sonic Prime Clip Features Tails’ Life Without Sonic

With Sonic Prime approaching quickly (a week from now, if you’re counting), Netflix After School has shared another clip of Sonic’s alternate reality adventures, this time focusing on a Tails that never knew Sonic.

Featuring sprite art flashbacks and striking consistency with the new cutscenes features in Sonic Origins, the “Eggman Counsil” universe twists Tails’ backstory. Without Sonic protecting and inspiring him as a child, he used his technical skills to shelter himself away and defend himself from bullies, leading him to develop his mecha-kitsune spider legs.

The first part of Sonic Prime premieres Dec. 15 on Netflix, with a special preview preview this Saturday within Roblox’ Sonic Speed Simulator.
