Sonic Loses his Rings & Does the Party Dance

You might have noticed we’ve been following the movie Wreck-It Ralph with a keen interest, mainly because some blue hedgehog guy that you all seem to like is in it along with a bloke in a red suit? Think he’s called Santa Eggman or something? That and it actually looks like a pretty cool movie, but mainly, the hedgehog and the guy in the suit.

Today a new voice actor featurette was posted online which contains a lot of new clips from the movie including a few blink and you’ll miss it moments. At 1:27 you’ll just barely see Dr Eggman going for a walk with a mysterious dark figure… then at 3:23 a certain someone loses his rings. As I said, blink and you’ll miss it.

More Sonic in Wreck-It Ralph?

Looks like the blue blur might be in for more than just a PSA cameo.

On the Wreck-It Ralph Facebook page, a new poster for the upcoming Disney movie has been unveiled. What has caught the attention of many is the addition of a certain Sonic the Hedgehog.

Rich Moore has not only confirmed Sonic’s appearance in the film, but generously showed fans a clip of the film back at Sonic Boom, where Sonic is seen giving a public service announcement not too unlike those of the old Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon. However, the new poster, along with a recently released Japanese trailer for the movie (viewable after the jump!), seems to suggest that Sonic just might be playing a much bigger role in this theatrical love letter to retro gaming.

Wreck-It Ralph will premiere in North American theatres on November 2nd. Ralph is also a playable character in the upcoming Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.

New Wreck-It Ralph Trailer Includes Sonic Cameo

A new trailer has just been released for upcoming Disney film Wreck-It Ralph, the story of a videogame antagonist who gets tired of being a bad guy and attempts to redeem his ways.

For those not already in the know, the film will contain numerous cameos by famous gaming icons, including our very own Sonic the Hedgehog – who you can catch a very brief glimpse of in this trailer. Sonic’s cameo appears at around the 0:47 mark but be warned… blink and you’ll miss it!

Doctor Eggman also makes a cameo appearance in the new trailer, which you can view over at Yahoo! Movies.

As previously reported, Sonic will be voiced in the movie by his official voice actor Roger Craig Smith, and Wreck-It Ralph himself will be starring alongside the blue blur as a playable character in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed this holiday season.

Wreck-It Ralph is due to hit cinemas in the US on 2nd November, and will make its way across the pond for a UK release on 15th February 2013.

E3: Sonic to Cameo in Samba de Amigo

SEGA like the Wii a lot for Dreamcast ports it seems. Oh, that was obvious? Sorry. How about something extra then to sweeten the deal a bit? In the upcoming Samba de Amigo port release for Nintendo’s white box, there will be a special guest cameo by Sonic himself. And a stage set in the Green Hill Zone. That’s pretty sweet news and should make for a pretty cool bonus for fans out there. Looks like Sonic’s already getting funked with a show of jazz hands in that screenshot there. Will be fun to see how he moves with the ‘riddim’.

On another note, why is it that everyone else at SEGA seems to know how to design a Sonic themed stage/cameo but it still evades Sonic-bloody-Team? Give us fantasy lands and blue skies dammit! Click the images above to get them in high quality, complete with the Incredible Floating Mii Man.

Oh Sonic, I do! Woohoo!

The Simpsons, America’s longest running comedy, has spoofed and referenced everything from James Bond to Furbies. Even the red plumber himself, Mario, recieved a cameo appearance during a barrel throwing gag done in the vein of the classic Donkey Kong. So I ask you…WHERE is my Sonic the Hedgehog spoof? Surely Matt Groening and his cohorts are more then mere Nintendo fanboys?

Well, for the three of us who’ve been waiting for the Simpsons to do SOMETHING with Sonic, the wait is finally, sort of, over. In the latest episode, Sonic the Hedgehog and Amy Rose make a brief appearance on a billboard, which says “Sonic the Hedgehog Says: Wait Until Marriage”, showing Sonic presenting Amy with a ring.
