A new Sonic game is expected to be announced at SXSW

Those who plan to attend this year’s South by Southwest (SXSW) event in Austin, Texas, will be joined by SEGA and its iconic blue hedgehog. It will all be a part of the company’s plan to host a “world-exclusive first look at what comes next.”

The writing is on the wall regarding a brand new Sonic game announcement, although details are severely lacking at this time. As such, we can’t even tell you if the thing will be 3D, or of the more popular and much more memorable 2D variety.

Here’s all we know thus far, and it comes directly from SEGA’s own website.

Sonic is back, and ready to take 2018 by storm. Join the official team from SEGA who are building Sonic’s future as they give you an update on last year’s strong performance of Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces, as well as the world-exclusive first look at what comes next for the fastest blue hedgehog. Speakers include Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka, Sonic PD Director Austin Keys, Sonic Mania Animation Director Tyson Hesse, and Sonic Social Media Manager Aaron Webber. You won’t want to miss this!

The ‘Gotta Go Fast’ panel will be held at 3:30 Central Time on March 16th.
