Sega of Europe announced this morning that it will be backing a fan venture this August to make the Summer of Sonic a reality. In association with fan sites Sonic Stadium and Sonic Wrecks, the world's first full Sonic the Hedgehog convention will take place in London on August 9.

Summer of whaaaa? Yes, SEGA has teamed up to give some backing to a fan venture for the first full on Sonic Convention which will be taking place in London on Saturday August 9th.  It’s a creation of the Sonic online fan base and its arguably two most involved websites The Sonic Stadium and Sonic Wrecks – whilst we’re still confirming details, the event is scheduled to have competitions for big prizes, interactions, special guests (tbc) and the chance to look at how Sonic as a brand has diversified over the years and the output of both fans and the company behind the gaming icon.  There’ll also be some surprises in store, Sonic in attendance and the chance to get a play on Sonic Chronicles a good couple of months before it comes out.  Anybody intending to come will need to register their interest on the website. Find out more details at http://www.summerofsonic.com

The event will be held at the Covent Garden Dragon Hall Trust and if you're planning on going, you will need to register with the SOS Web site and log your interest. Am I going? You're damn right I'll be going ... just as soon as this bloody Web site lets me log in. Jesus, what's the problem here?

Sonic may have fallen from grace over the years, but Destructoid plans to be there to cheer the blue guy on and celebrate the days he used to be great like the nostalgic fools that we are. Any other Brits want to tag along? I promise it'll be better than our little day trip to Play.com Live. 

... I can make no such guarantee.
