“Sonic the Hedgehog 2” trailer shows Knuckles and Tails
Well you know what, it’s time to face the facts: even though we weren’t the biggest fans of Sonic the hedgehog when he got out it seemed like the world just couldn’t get enough of this chili loving little rodent. For many people, it was the last good experience they had in the theater before COVID screwed up, and for others, it was a mid-40s distraction how shitty the world was getting. So, hats off, Sonic, you’ve earned the right to make a sequel to rake that dough and probably disappoint everyone who liked the first one. it’s called of course Sonic the hedgehog 2, and Paramount released the trailer Thursday night at The Game Awards, an awards show that exists for three reasons. First, it aims to reward the most popular games of the year. Second, it aims to have new releases for 2022 (including some movies). Third, it generates a pure and pure cringe. Anyway, the trailer. It looks like more Sonic.
Look at him :
Here’s a synopsis, with a full cast list for good measure:
