Did we notice something in here, or are we just trying too hard?Continue reading Is This a Reference? Sonic 2 Trailer Edition
EDIT: The town featured here is actually Fort Langley, and not the location of Ladysmith used in the first movie. Thanks for the update Reggie!
IDW Sonic Comic artist Reggie Graham popped over to the little town of Ladysmith in British Colombia, Canada, to check out the set dressing for the Green Hills high street, currently being used for filming of the second Sonic the Hedgehog movie!
Posting on Twitter, Graham found amongst the many pieces displaying the Green Hills town name is a Coffee Shop named “The Mean Bean Coffee Co.”, a reference to the 1993 title Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine.
Great to see these little nods to Sonic’s past will continue in the next movie!
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is due for release on April 8th, 2022.
No doubt continuing on from Nintendo and SEGA’s newfound partnership, today marks the release of not one, not two, not three, but four Game Gear games on the Nintendo 3DS eShop! We’ve already seen the likes of Sonic Triple Trouble and Sonic Blast hitting the Big N’s 3D handheld system, but now you can add some more titles to your digital retro SEGA collection, with two Sonic themed games leading the pack.
