Sonic Central 2022: Sonic Games and Series Announcements 

Sega Announced game updates and more at the event

Sonic Central 2022, the second annual event celebrating the famous blue hedgehog, featured multiple announcements about upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog products, including games and even a television series.

Sega showed off a preview of the upcoming Netflix series, Sonic Prime, in which Sonic and friends attempt to prevent the destruction of a new multiverse.

The animated series promises to touch on themes of self-discovery and redemption and will star Modern Sonic. As of now, the release date for Sonic Prime is unknown, but according to both Sega and Netflix, the series will be available soon. Additionally, the upcoming game Sonic Frontiers is getting an animated short film entitled Sonic Frontiers: Prologue, which will release before the game.
