Sonic The Hedgehog

Update: Earlier today, Japan time, Sonic was revealed as a playable character for Puyo Puyo Tetris 2. Sure enough, this was the surprise Sega had planned for its Twitch live stream. Get the full rundown in our latest story.

2021 is a big year for Sega - with the company's mascot Sonic the Hedgehog celebrating his 30th anniversary.

With this in mind, Sega has announced its first live stream of the year is taking place on Twitch at some point later today (European time). It apparently has "something special" to share during the broadcast and more details will be shared soon.

"Something special" could of course be anything related to Sega, so we'll just have to wait and find out.

In saying this, over the past year, Sega has mentioned on multiple occasions how it has some very exciting news to share about Sonic and can't wait to reveal what it is. There's also been the reveal today of Sonic joining Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 - could it be that?
