SEGA Reveals ‘Sonic Boom’ Characters


SEGA’s smash hit videogame character Sonic the Hedgehog is lining up a whole new universe of adventures. Announced earlier this year, the new franchise spin Sonic Boom includes the first-ever TV series based on the game world, a CG animated take for Cartoon Network. There will also be new games for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS and a robust merchandise program. SEGA has now unveiled some of Sonic’s new pals that fans will meet in Sonic Boom:

Sonic Boom

Perci – Sonic Boom

Perci is beautiful yet tough as nails, using her street smarts and tough exterior to protect the town.

Sonic Boom

Salty – Sonic Boom

Salty is the self-proclaimed captain of the ocean. His egocentric attitude is apparent even though his words and actions are not always justified.

Sonic Boom

Mayor Fink – Sonic Boom

Mayor Fink is a typical politician: a fast talker out of both sides of his mouth. Loud and confident, he feels in control even if he has no idea what he’s doing.

Sonic Boom

Fastidious Beaver – Sonic Boom

Fastidious Beaver is a fussy, uptight beaver with a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The company has also released the latest behind-the-scenes trailer, featuring interviews with key players on the project. Learn about the background of the upcoming series and get a glimpse at what’s waiting for Sonic and friends.

    And let’s not forget to credit the artist : the amazing Sylvain Deboissy !

  • AdamDuffield

    None of these look like sonic characters

    • Galbador

      I would say Perci comes close to be a Sonic character.

  • IKissedAZurg

    Mayor Fink looks pretty cool, but the rest? Meh.

    • H3adHunt3r

      Actually, Perci isn’t bad at all either, she actually
      looks like a promising and cool character.

  • C.J. Brown

    I will reserve judgement upon viewing the Cartoon Network series …
    one can’t complain as there is awful animation compared to this (ie Teen Titans reboot)
