You Can Play this McDonald’s Sonic 2 Browser Game With or Without a Happy Meal

Did you know many McDonald’s Happy Meals now come with a QR code to access special features and games? Apparently they do, and you can use one to access this bizarre augmented reality Sonic 2 movie game!

You’ll normally need to buy a Happy Meal with a toy from Paramount’s Sonic 2 movie to get access to this code (in fact, we haven’t quite pinned down if this is a UK exclusive or not), but anyone anywhere can directly jump in via this URL:

(We don’t know how long this promotion will be available, so if this link is broken in the future, sorry, there’s not much we can do!)

Sonic Cage Dome on Twitter brought this weird novelty to the world’s attention:

The VERY simplistic game has a 3D model of movie Sonic walking along set paths, attempting to collect as many rings as possible before the timer runs out. All the while, your camera lets you inject yourself to look upon this tiny world as if a deity, deciding the fate of the meager creature stalking the corridors of your realm.

And yes, I did have quite a lot of fun making the feature image for this article. Thank you for asking.

UK Getting It’s Own Sonic Happy Meal Toys

Last month, most of McDonalds’ upcoming Sonic 2 happy meal toys were leaked. However, the plastic toys will not be coming to the company’s UK and Irish locations, and will instead be replaced by plastic-free toys.

The existence of toys was initially confirmed by a photo posted by a Facebook user, which was then shared to Twitter by Dave Luty. Luty than shared photos of what appears to be packaging for the toys taken off of a computer. The toys appear to be centered on Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles. In addition to the toys, the photos also confirm a “book option.”

The person who took the second group of photos Luty posted speculated that the toys were likely paper dioramas and board games. You can check out the photos below:

The UK and Ireland are getting different Sonic toys due to a 2020 pledge from McDonalds UK & Ireland to reduce their use of plastics by eliminating plastic toys, and instead move towards toys made out of paper or cloth. McDonalds as a whole will be phasing out plastic toys by 2025.

We don’t yet know what these toys will be, but once we do we’ll report on it, so stay tuned! Hopefully McDonalds will officially unveil their toys soon.
