Rock out with Sonic this weekend.
If you’re a Sonic fan headed to San Diego Comic-Con this week, rejoice, because you’ll be able to access some pretty amazing Sonic-related content. First up is a Sounds of Sonic concert which, as you might guess, is a concert themed around all things Sonic the Hedgehog. There will also be a Sonic Mania: Behind the Scenes panel, where the head developers will give us loads of insights into the creative and development process behind Sonic Mania.
The Sounds of Sonic Concert will be taking place on July 20, so day 1 of the event. It will feature Shota Nakama, a world-renowned composer of many video game themes. Also appearing will be Jun Senoue of Crush40, who was the sound director for many of the most beloved 3D Sonic games; The Sonic Adventure series and Sonic Generations, to name just a few.
