Apparently this was the massive, franchise-shattering news that Sega had promised was coming to all Sonic fans. Sonic the Hedgehog is getting a new voice actor. Not exactly the most thrilling of megatons, is it?
Still, it’s somewhat interesting due to the fact that Sonic’s new voice has some videogame pedigree to his name. Roger Craig Smith will step into the hedgehog’s vocal chords, and if you’re wondering who that is, you may know him better as either Chris Redfield from Resident Evil 5 or Ezio from Assassin’s Creed 2.
Tails is also getting a new throat in the form of Kate Higgins, known for playing Naruto’s Sakura Haruno. Meanwhile, Dr. Robotnik will be keeping Mike Pollock, so no changes there.
Sounds interesting I guess, but they really should have got me to do it.
