Sonic Colors: Rise of the Wisps - Part 1 animated short Sega

There is no end in sight to the 30th anniversary celebrations for Sonic the Hedgehog, and Sega has today released Part 1 of a two-part animated web series, Sonic Colors: Rise of the Wisps, ahead of the release of Sonic Colors: Ultimate on September 7, 2021. This first episode features Sonic and Tails with a Jade Wisp that narrowly escaped “the deceptively charming Sweet Mountain ride at Dr. Eggman’s Incredible Interstellar Amusement Park.” The trio must now rally to unravel Dr. Eggman’s evil scheme to take control of the Wisps and rule the universe. So, pretty typical Sonic, frankly! Check out the slick animated stylings of Sonic Colors: Rise of the Wisps – Part 1 below.

Much more is coming for the 30th anniversary of Sonic, such as Sonic Origins, a remastered re-release of the first three Sonic games and & Knuckles. Furthermore, a new mainline game (potentially an open-world game called Sonic Rangers) is coming in 2022, the movie Sonic the Hedgehog 2 with Idris Elba as Knuckles arrives next April, a free Sonic pack dropped in Two Point Hospital, and you can party the night away with an Eggman robot boss toy from the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 video game.

Tell us what you think of Sonic Colors: Rise of the Wisps – Part 1, and stay tuned for more animated coolness in Part 2.
