Sonic The Hedgehog 2 First Trailer To Be Revealed Tomorrow At The Game Awards

The Game Awards are now only a day away and there will be plenty crowded at the two-hour event if Geoff Keighley’s promises are anything to go through. Not just the awards themselves, of which there are 30, but also a ton of very special reveals. Apparently one of them has been two and a half years in the making, causing those to tune in to hope for something related to Breath of the Wild 2, or maybe even GTA 6.

Sonic is also guaranteed to feature heavily, asking Keighley for some invites on Twitter as rumors spread that Sonic Frontiers will be officially revealed Thursday night. On top of that, the first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will debut at The Game Awards. The news was confirmed on Twitter along with the first poster for the sequel.

The poster is inspired by the video game of the same name and shows Sonic and Tails running from Robotnik on a plane. Sonic and Tails can be found flying a very similar plane in Sky Chase Zone from Sonic 2 on the Sega Mega Drive. The poster also shows Jim Carrey’s Robotnik in a much more traditional mode of transportation than he used in the first film.

Notable for his absence from the poster is Knuckles. Earlier this year, Idris Elba confirmed that he would be playing the world’s most famous echidna in the sequel, sharing nothing more than a shot of the character’s clenched fist to accompany the news. The only other look at Knuckles’ appearance on the big screen has come through photographs of the model being used to take the echidna’s place on set.

How exactly Knuckles will look in the movie remains a mystery, but that will almost definitely change once the trailer premieres at The Game Awards tomorrow night. Hopefully, Paramount and Sega learned their lesson after the disastrous reveal of what Sonic would originally look like in the first movie. They nailed the Tails design on the first try and also cast the voice actor from the games for the role. Knuckles fingers crossed looks just as good.
