SEGA art director Kazuyuki Hoshino has reportedly stated that the team is working to turn Sonic the Hedgehog into a VTuber. This will come as part of a new broadcast project. Hoshino also stated that the team’s next goal is to open up a Sonic theme park, due to the success of the recent Sonic the Hedgehog movie. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089!]

The information comes from Ryokutya2089, who has frequently been the first to post key information from physical publications such as Famitsu and Weekly Shonen Jump. In this case, it comes from two statements from Sonic the Hedgehog producer Takashi Iizuka and art director Kazuyuki Hoshino.

The specific source of these statements is unknown. However, they likely come from Famitsu’s upcoming Sonic 30th Anniversary column, which also features interviews with the two men. The column, which previewed on Famitsu’s official website, will be available on Famitsu’s July 8, 2021 Edition. It releases on June 24, 2021. In it, Hoshino states that the team is working on a project to turn Sonic into a VTuber as part of a new streaming program. He hopes that fans will enjoy the new opportunity to “communicate with Sonic in real-time.”

Thanks mods for the title change

The fans are even worse than the 3D games they are THAT bad. Weird thing is when sonic was released back in the 90's there never used to be any of this shit but then i have no idea what happened, he went from a simple mascot character to loads of peoples sexual fetish.
Rule 34.

Also, opinions are like assholes. Everybody has one. The internet just made it easier for them to stink up the place.

Right.

I had a Sonic stuffed animal, and would draw him in elementary but most people just grew out of it. In enters deviant art and the rest is history.

Cmon now super mario had some tunes bro



Now keep in mind this is 8bit NES compared to the 16 bit MegaGenesis so its not quite fair but I think these are melodic.

Then you have World which has this


But ok I will admit that since Sonic has 16 bit in the first three games it has obviously better music

I don't think anyone is making fun of this because it's Sonic, but because fans will be thrown out daily for asking the poor people dressed up as Sonic and his friends to yiff or sign diaper porn. The fanbase is the point of ridicule.

The fanbase is this unholy union of weebs, furries, and people who draw sexualized versions of cartoon characters from their childhood.

EPIC Sonic FandUMB BAD CUmEdY GOLD XDEEEE

guys i tought we were past this already, the Sonic fandom isn't that bad, if you think the sonic fandom was weird then you guys don't even know the Pokemon fandom, and i don't mean just the furbait pokemon, i also mean the humans, the cool dragon pokemon, the cutesy ones like pikachu they all have a lot of porn, it's sad that intentionally bad OC's by memers, a youtube video wich according to the guy behind it, was joke anyways, and weird fetish art, that like with the porn, can easily be found just as if not even more easily in franchises like Mario (Bowser, Yoshi and Donkey Kong being the primary victims, maybe some more obscure villains or enemies) & Pokemon (need to repeat myself?) than Sonic.

besides what about the normal fans or the talented fans that are actually able to make good stuff, fangames (and unlike Nintendo, SEGA doesn't take them down), fanmusic & remixes, genuinly good OC's and fanfics (under the mountains of intentionally bad oc's and stuff made by kids, there's some genuinly good stuff to be found), genuinly good Sonictubers (LS Mark/Splasdash, Chaomix, Cybershell), and more, hell the people behind Sonic Mania, need to remind you are Sonic fans. if anything the Mania and IDW team should represent the current fanbase more.

Wake me up when he's doing ASMR.

*imagines Sonic speaking in a husky whisper*

Kids, there's nothing more cool than being hugged by someone you like.

But if someone tries to touch you in a place or in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable, that's no good.

It's your body. No one has the right to touch you if you don't want them to.

So what do you do?
