The Sonic the Hedgehog movie made over 60,000,000 dollars at the U.S. box office and over 100,000,000 worldwide. It has a chance of being the biggest hit released so far this year, and it definitely represents a high watermark for Sonic as a cultural figure in recent years (Regardless of how much you liked Sonic Mania it didn't get nearly this much mainstream attention.)
It's insane, then, that Sega has nothing significant to tie into this big surge of attention. Don't get me wrong, it's a very Sega thing to do, but you'd think they'd at least have like a big mobile release of some Sonic games that haven't been on IOS or Android, or a new collection featuring some of the games that haven't been released on current systems.
Nope. I guess there's the Sega Ages version of Sonic 2 coming to the Switch this week, but that's not tied into the movie in any way (including through publicity) and Sonic 2 is already on the Switch, so I don't really count it.
Given that it's been over 2 years since Sonic Forces you'd think they'd have at least an announcement of a new game, or HD ports of the Adventure series and Sonic Colors, or some sort of something. Another spin-off game. Sonic Spinball 2. Sonic Heroes on the Switch. Big The Cat's Xtreme Fishing. A port of Sonic Boom to the N-Gage.
Anyway, the Sonic movie is a massive hit and hopefully that will lead to some renewed momentum for the franchise. Sonic Mania was such a breath of fresh air and then Sonic Forces seemed like it was made with such apathy and Team Sonic Racing was such a weird and uninspired thing... It'd be great if Sega actually cared about their flagship and tried to do something even 25% as interesting as Super Mario Odyssey.
