“Special Reveal” At the SXSW 25th Anniversary Panel

sxswssonicpanel

A few days ago we brought you news that there would be a very special panel at the SXSW 2016 convention.

Well since then, there’s been a number of developments, the first major detail is that the event will now be live-streamed via twitch. However the more interesting detail is that according to the SXSW website, there will be a ‘special reveal’ as part of the panel for the anniversary celebrations.

What will this special reveal be? Well we know for certain that it’s not going to be a game. However with Yuji Naka being present along with Iizuka, you can’t blame fans for speculating it might be something important.

More details as and when we get them.

Got a few questions of my own to ask!

Burnham Area Rescue Boat Charity Auction

BARBANNOUNCE

In addition, there is also a charity auction taking place in aid for the Burnham Area Rescue Boat. A local rescue group who are instrumental to providing rescue services and relief to the local area, and its dangerous mudflats.

The B.A.R.B was especially involved in the search for four-year-old Sonic Fan Dylan Cecil, who tragically lost his life after falling from a jetty in Burnham on Sea.

So what’s up for auction exactly? A very special Sonic the Comic something indeed. StC fans will want to bring their pockets!


 

With that, this will probably be the last update we post on Weston Super Sonic until the event itself tomorrow. Keep your eyes to our Twitter or watch the action live via The Sonic Show’s live stream, narrated by none other than Sonic Paradox’s very own Donnie!

Have fun guys!

UPDATE: Aaron Webber has confirmed via Twitter that there won’t be any new game announcements at the panel.

You may recall an article we published last month about Ken Pontac being listed on AOD 2013’s website as the writer for an upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog game. Well, we’ve now learned from AOD 2013’s Dominic Nguyen, that Ken will be there as part of a bigger official SEGA Sonic presence.
