2017 saw the release of both Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces from Sega, along with the announcement that IDW would be taking over the reigns of the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series after being published by Archie comics for 24 years.
It was recently posted on the South by Southwest 2018 website that Sega will be holding the “Gotta go Fast: The official Sonic the Hedgehog panel” that will talk about the previously released games as well as show off something new in the works for Sonic which could be a new game or even a bit of the upcoming movie which was announced back in 2016.
Sonic is back, and ready to take 2018 by storm. Join the official team from SEGA who are building Sonic’s future as they give you an update on last year’s strong performance of Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces, as well as the world-exclusive first look at what comes next for the fastest blue hedgehog.
The panel will feature Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka, Austin Keys who is the head of Sonic’s Western Product Development team, Sonic Mania Animation Director Tyson Hesse, and Social Media Manager Aaron Webber and will be held on March 16th, 2018 at 3:30pm — 4:30pm.
