SEGA has launched a new collaboration with Japanese theme park Fuji-Q Highland that will see Sonic and his friends take charge of the venue's attractions and announcements, and be available for photo opportunities in a dedicated area called 'Sonic Square'. The event started on September 27 and runs until October 15.
As you might expect, the partnership is to coincide with the release of Sonic Superstars, and the website promoting the event mentions a play corner in the Sonic Square where people can try the game out and get a free character face mask for doing so. Attendees will also be able to play Samba de Amigo: Party Central, too.
Elsewhere, various park attractions will feature announcements from Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy while you wait in line, and there will be a number of photo areas where fans can take pictures with the awesome foursome. A collaboration menu will also be available, offering chili dogs and themed coloured drinks.
That last image there is of something called "Knuckles' fruit-loving colorful churros". Sounds delightful.
Other activities include a mystery-solving game where attendees must find Sonic-themed clues dotted around the park, with these Chaos Emerald-shaped sweets offered as prizes for completing the puzzles.
The collaboration will also feature famous Japanese VTuber, Korone Inugami, who will be donned in Sonic gear and performing various duties around Fuji-Q Highland too. From photo shoots to announcements and even a talk event where fans can win signed collaboration artwork as illustrated below.
If you're planning a trip to Japan before October 15, it's worth checking out Fuji-Q Highland while this event is running. It's fairly easy to travel to, if you're also heading to Kawaguchi-ko to see the sights of Mount Fuji.
