South-by-Southwest, or as it’s more commonly known SXSW, is a convention in Austin, TX that features film, music, comedy, and “interactive,” which is a fancy way of saying video games. It’s basically a con for everything but Anime, and this year, it’s being held March 10-19.
What does this have to do with Sonic? Well, Sega has just announced plans to host an hour-long panel on 3/16 @ SXSW. The panel will feature more news regarding Project Sonic, as well as more information on Sonic Mania, which releases this Spring for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and the Switch.
What should we expect from this panel?
Dive into the world of Sonic the Hedgehog in this exclusive behind-the-scenes look at both Sonic Mania and the upcoming Sonic 2017! With presenters from SEGA and Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka, this panel will answer questions about both games, showcase a new reveal for each title, and will discuss Sonic’s resurgence in the world of gaming since the reveal of both games. Of course, with Sonic involved, who knows what other surprises might be in store?
No release date has been given for either title yet, but expect that to change after SXSW.
