Free Sonic Hat with Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice at Nintendo UK

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, the sequel to Sanzaru Games’ Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal from 2014, races onto Nintendo 3DS in Europe on Friday 30th September. With only a few weeks to go until the release date, UK gamers can now put their pre-orders down on the Nintendo UK Online Store and get a nifty Sonic hat for free!

Admittedly it’s not the most exciting pre-order incentive in the world – the site openly admits that these are the same 20th anniversary hats that have been floating around and given away at events for the past five years – but it’s certainly better than nothing! If you’ve ever wanted to look like your favourite blue hedgehog and never managed to nab one of these beauties, now’s your chance.

CarlsSonicBoomKids

Although Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice has been delayed until next year, that’s not stopping Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s from promoting the game with Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice Cool Kids Combos . While they’re nothing too spectacular, they’re miles above what you got in the Del Taco Sonic Boom kids meal. You can collect up to four different toys in the set which each kids combo meal you purchase. These toys include…..

Splat Ball – See Sonic Boom characters on this soft, squishy ball. Turn your best friends into your greatest enemies as you splash them with water in these cool winter temperatures.

Sonic The Hedgehog Figure – This rolling Sonic the Hedgehog figure really shines! (Note to self: Get a few of these. Spray paint Sonic gold and make into award trophies for next Sonic fan convention.)

Board Game – You can play as Sonic, Tails, Sticks, Amy or Knuckles! Be the first to reach the end and win, but watch out for enemy attacks. Like the Del Taco toy, you have to build your own dice, but it does look like a more traditional board game.

Communicator with Secret Compartment – Lift the top off of this wristband to reveal a secret compartment. This can also be great for cosplay if you’re making a Sonic Boom costume for Halloween.

The promotion will be going on until early November. You can check out the website for more info at www.carlscoolkids.com. While you’re there, check out the funzone for Sonic Boom Wallpapers and more.
