SEGA has revealed that their newest Sonic the Hedgehog series, Sonic Boom is headed to this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Attendees of the convention who head on over to SEGA’s booth will be able to try out Demos of both the 3DS game Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystals and the Wii U game Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.

This announcement is related to an earlier announcement made by Nintendo, in which the company ensured that it would have “its biggest presence ever” at the convention. The playable demos are part of Nintendo’s wide-spreading presence.

Aside from the gameplay, Sega is also excited about the release of the new villain set to appear in the series; an ancient monstrous snake-like creature named Lyric. While not much is known about the new antagonist, SEGA promises that Lyric will be “the most vile and formidable villain in Sonic history”.

Both Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystals are set to release November 1st of this year.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side,Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others). Some of my favorite games and/or series include, but are not limited to: - Pokemon - Mario - Kirby - Castlevania - Mega Man - Super Smash Brothers - BioShock - Dead Space - Kingdom Hearts - Fallout - The Elder Scrolls - The Binding of Isaac - Animal Crossing
