The official Sonic the Hedgehog twitter loves its online memes and it may now be using one to hint at some upcoming announcements.
So we can probably expect the next episode of Sonic Mania Adventures by May 30. The “new game” is almost certainly a reference to the as-yet untitled Sonic racing game revealed a few months ago. It would be surprising if that game didn’t get a full reveal by the time E3 comes around next month.
Today saw the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account featured on prolific internet social media hub Buzzfeed.
For those who aren’t connected to the Twitterverse, you will have missed the rather spectacular recent awakening of the account, which gained a new level of sentience this year. In among it’s now self-awareness of the sizable collection of Sonic the Hedgehog internet memes, the account also called out several big name commentators and competitors this year, including Nintendo, and was temporarily taken over by Doctor Eggman for a day (although we’re sure we’ve heard that voice somewhere else before). Needless to say this has caused several internet-breaking moments, so much so it has caught the attention of many media outlets.
The account has even received an endorsement from Sonic the Hedgehog creator Naoto Oshima:
We at TSS salute the Sonic Twitter account and crafty creatures on the media team running it (including a certain Aaron Webber!), and we can’t wait for the next post!
Gotta go fatsr.
