Sonic is back to his small-screen best
Sonic the Hedgehog is back once again on the small screen. Episode 1 of a planned 5-part series, entitled Sonic Mania Adventures, is now on YouTube. Forget that bizarre Sonic Boom reinvention; this is the Sonic everyone needs. Even more interestingly is the series serves as a continuation of both Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces.
Here is the channel’s synopsis of episode 1:-
“Sonic has just arrived back after the events of Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces, but something is already amiss. What are the huge holes being dug in the ground? And why is Eggman already capturing more animals? The story begins here, with the first of five parts in: “Sonic Returns”!”
Like Sonic Mania, this is Sonic done right
Much like the Sonic Mania intro, the animation is a joy to watch. The tone is light, fun and hugely satisfying. Adventure, intrigue and comedy all in one little 3-minute package. The comedy elements hark back to the classic 1993 Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog series. There is no Jaleel White in sight here, or any speech at all, and is all the better for it. It is a cute, wordless mini-adventure with a classic Eggman showdown.
