Sure, it looks like Sonic is about to make the ultimate comeback with Project Needlemouse, but I’m pretty sure the blue hedgehog has a lot of downtime in between games. So the poor guy needs some kind of paying gig in between jobs.
Sadly for Sonic, waiting on tables isn’t the best choice if you want to avoid your former co-workers, such as Mario and the crew. Even worse is that the poor guy has to work for his arch enemy too. Sonic just can’t catch a break.
