Sega releases cute Sonic the Hedgehog Holiday short


The real Episode IX

As a a holiday gift to Sonic the Hedgehog fans, Sega has surprise released a new entry in its ongoing series of animated shorts featuring Sonic and his pals. This new episode - which features Chao of the Sonic Adventure series - is particularly adorable.

The four-minute clip sees a sleepwalking Chao imagining itself as an intergalactic space fighter, (neatly depicted in a retro-looking, '90s animation style), Back in the waking world, Sonic must keep the Chao from getting into trouble, while a Holiday variant of ol' meanie Dr. Robotnik attempts to steal the blue blur's presents.

Eh, I don't wanna ruin it, check it out for yourself, particularly its surprisingly brutal climax!

Sonic Mania Plus is available now on PS4, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
