‘What comes next’ for Sonic franchise to be revealed at SXSW 2018

What follows Forces?

Sega have stated that, at March’s SXSW conference, a panel will be held to give a “World-exclusive first-look at what comes next” for the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.

The panel, taking place in Austin, TX this Spring, will feature Sega’s Jason Hernandez, Aaaron Webber, Takashi Iizuka and Austin Keys, alongside animator Tyson Heese. The panel will look back at the response to 2017’s Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces, before unveiling plans for the spiky blue blur, for 2018 and beyond.

Gotta Go Fast: The Official Sonic the Hedgehog Panel, will take place on March 16 at 15:30 CT. SXSW 2018’s gaming section takes place between March 15 and March 17.
