Just like Sonic Mania Adventures before it, a new Sonic animated miniseries has arrived to mark the upcoming release of Team Sonic Racing. It’s brought to you once again by Tyson Hesse and Neko Productions.
Team Sonic Racing Overdrive was unveiled at SXSW 2019’s Gotta Go Fast panel yesterday as a two-part webseries based on the anticipated racer, featuring high-speed shenanigans between the rival Teams Sonic, Dark, Rose, Vector, and Eggman. What was promised as a 15-second tease of the webseries quickly turned into a premiere of the entire first episode, with the unlikely spotlight shining on a familiar amphibian enthusiast! Check out “Part 1: Dangerous Distractions” above! Part 2 is expected to arrive later in April.
Like Big, you too can sport your love of all things Froggy with brand new Froggy-themed merchandise now available off the SEGA Shop! Namely, the Froggy hat and shirt featured in the Overdrive short can be yours, as well as a Team Sonic Racing pin, a TSR lanyard, a Sonic and Shadow TSR tee, and a Carnival Night Zone Barrel coffee mug pulled straight from Sonic 3 & Knuckles.
In related news, SEGA also dropped some surprise Sonic Boom news at the panel, announcing that a second volume of DVDs—titled “Go Team Sonic!”—for the animated spinoff is coming in June. Season two of Sonic Boom is now available on iTunes, Amazon Prime, and the Xbox digital store as well—sorry, Boom Believers, no season three reveals here.
SEGA of America’s social media madman Aaron Webber also notes that Paramount may be dropping some Sonic the Hedgehog movie news in the coming days, so keep your eyes peeled!
