In a surprise reveal at the Sonic SXSW panel, Sega announced a series of Team Sonic Racing products available via their official stores… Including items inspired by everybody’s favourite amphibian, Froggy!
Yes that is a Froggy shirt, and yes those are Froggy hats!
The full collection is available on the US Sega Store and you also get a free Froggy balloon when you order the Froggy items.
However the EU stores do not have the Froggy hats, and the shirts are technically crowdfunded, orders will only be fulfilled if a specific unknown number of people also order the item.
You can shop until you drop via the following links.

Yesterday we brought you the news that SXSW were teasing a Sonic related announcement.
Well that announcement has just been made and we can now reveal that there will be another Sonic Panel at this years SXSW! The initial details for the panel are as follows.
Date/Time: March 16, 2019, from 1:00PM to 2:00PM.
Aaron Webber (SEGA of America),
Jasmin Hernandez (SEGA of America),
Jun Senoue (SEGA),
Takashi Iizuka (SEGA of America)
Nothing has been confirmed or even teased with regards to announcements, but… and I stress this is my pure speculation here…
I’d like to think that since the panel is close to TSR’s release, there will be some new information on that, especially since Jun is… if you’ll excuse the pun… instrumental with the music for that game.
Jasmin Hernandez was also the production manager for Sonic Mania Adventures, could get confirmation of Season 2?
And you know that with Aaron and Iizuka on the panel, Aaron will do all he can to pry any secrets from Mr Iizuka on the day!
What do you think? What do you think will be announced or talked about, let us know in the comments.

Rumours of a new Sonic racer being in development have been rife since the end of January, with SXSW just over the horizon, many fans have speculated as to if this would be the place for an announcement.

CB.com managed to interview Ivo Gerscovich who is the chief brand officer for Sonic in America and in the same article they said the following.
And this year is looking to be just as fast for him, with the announcement of a live action/CGI movie coming next year and a new game set to be announced next month during SXSW Gaming.
Now in the interview, Ivo is not directly quoted as confirming a game announcement at SXSW, however he did have this to say about the movie…
The film-makers have a very unique and exciting vision in mind for the story, and we can’t wait to see how this blend of CGI/live action comes to life on the big screen!
We’ll keep you updated with more information as we get it.
