Japanese fashion brand SuperGroupies, known for making apparel inspired by anime and games, has announced a collaboration with Sonic the Hedgehog. We’ve seen the brand make clothing and accessories based on many video game franchises, including BlazBlue and Guilty Gear, but its next will be the first-ever with Sonic the Hedgehog as part of the Blue Blur’s 30th anniversary this year.
The four-item collaboration collection features a watch, backpack, sneakers, and cap inspired by Sonic the Hedgehog. More specifically, the Sonic gear has designs based on stages from the earlier game, including the instantly recognizable Green Hill Zone.
Check out the Sonic the Hedgehog gear by SuperGroupies below:
Sonic the Hedgehog Model Watch
The Sonic watch comes with a fun design that includes the meadows and cityscapes from the background patterns of the games. The bottom features the Green Hill Zone from the first game, while the upper part of the watch features the Studiopolis Zone from Sonic Mania. The watch will go for $230 plus tax, and it’ll ship out in mid-July 2022.
Sonic the Hedgehog Model Backpack
The backpack has a subtle checkered pattern modeled after the Green Hill stage design. It also has three rings embroidered in gold just before a running Sonic. The bag even has three golden metal rings on both sides that help keep it together. You can preorder the bag for $150 plus tax. It will ship in mid-June 2022.
Sonic the Hedgehog Model Sneakers
The sneakers come in black with a bright pop of Sonic blue for the shoelaces. The shoelace eyelets also represent the golden rings. The front of the shoes features the iconic Green Hill Zone checkered pattern. You can now preorder the sneakers for $120 plus tax. The estimated delivery is mid-June 2022.
Sonic the Hedgehog Model Cap
Lastly, we have the cap that features embroidery of Sonic’s face on the front. The left part also has a printed tag featuring the official Sonic the Hedgehog logo over a checkered Green Hill Zone design. The cap will go for $70 plus tax. It will ship in mid-April 2022.
The Sonic the Hedgehog collaboration gear by SuperGroupies is now available to preorder on the official website. You can preorder now through 7:00 p.m. PT on January 3, 2022. Japanese clothing company Cospa also recently started taking preorders for a vintage-style Sonic the Hedgehog sukajan jacket.
