Mad Catz bringing Sonic-themed DS travel cases

9:30 PM on 06.14.2010 // Tony Ponce

Sonic has been getting around lately. We've got Sonic 4 arriving on multiple platforms, Sonic Colors for the Wii and DS, and now the Kinect-enabled Sonic Free Riders for the 360. With all this Sonic love in the air, Mad Catz has decided to release a variety of Sonic-themed travel cases for the DS Lite and DSi handhelds.

Making its way into stores right now is a wallet for storing loose games and styli in addition to your DS. Coming out in July are a protective sock sleeve and a durable ArmorCase made from what I assume to be space-age polymers. All feature Sonic's smug mug and should offer your DS protection from scratches and fat, balding supervillains.

New Range Speeds onto Nintendo DSi™ and DS™ Lite Beginning June 2010

San Diego, June 14. 2010

Mad Catz® Interactive, Inc.

Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz commented, “As such an iconic video game character, we felt it vital to honor Sonic with a range of licensed accessories which would do true justice to this world-famous hedgehog.  Working alongside SEGA, we believe we have produced a range which will excite Sonic fans and gamers alike and one which will continue to showcase our strategy of bringing premier licenses to market which evoke a passionate consumer response.”

Embedded pictures in Quickposts seem to be broken for me right now.

To my surprise, I've more or less figured out Rodea Wii U controls. Still a different game from the Wii version, but not as decidedly inferior in my eyes. Did the legacy medals do anything in Wii version?

"Am I a kid, or a squid?" I ponder as I stare off into the horizon. A wise man once told me "Son, you can be whatever you want to be. You are only limited by your lack of ambition " And I want to be a squid. A squid now.

Gave Ronin one more chance before I chucked it in the "never to be finished" pile, glad I did. It could have been so much better but as a frustrating time waster it's not bad.

I'm sitting on the Fapcast's most recent recording. I just feel like I need a day for myself after, you know, freaking out about rent.

Why is every Quickpost now spaced out like poems with random amounts of stanzas that never ever rhyme?

Was anybody else here extremely disappointed by the ending of Assassin's Creed 2?

PSA: Just picked up Falco amiibo at Best Buy. They had about 20 Tom Nook, 10 singles of Splatoon Boy/Girl, the Splatoon triple pack, about 30 Marths with a big sign saying "Look Who's Back!," Dark Pit, and probably about 15 others. Not too shabby.

I long for the day that people get over their weird circle jerk hatred for FFXIII related things and just ignore things they don't care about.
