As part of Sonic's 31st anniversary this week, Sega held Sonic Station livestream celebrating the launch of Sonic Origins.

During the broadcast, Sega also announced a year-long collaboration with the Hololive Virtual YouTuber (and Sonic fan) Inugami Korone - titled “Sonikoro 2022". She's now got her own special Sonic-themed outfit, and in addition to this, it's been revealed she'll also be providing voice over work for the Japanese dub of the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie.

It's unknown at this stage what her exact role is on the movie, but for now, here's a look at her new outfit:
