Sonic, our favorite blue hedgehog, hasn’t stopped talking about him for a few days. Except that today isn’t about bringing us his next title, Sonic Frontiers, but about revealing a little more about the Netflix series Sonic Prime.
A new hero appears
After formalizing during Sonic Central the presence of Shadow, the dark-eyed hedgehog, of the Netflix series Sonic Prime rushes back to the front of the stage during Netflix Geeked Week to introduce us to a new hero: Big.
Indeed, it’s the turn of the big cat Big, a friend of Amy’s, to enter Sonic Prime, as confirmed by the excerpt available above. He can be seen spinning in place as Sonic zooms past him. He is also accompanied by his friend Froggy the frog.
As a reminder, Big the Cat was introduced in the game Sonic Adventure released in 1998. Recently he also had a major role in Team Sonic Racing.
A series for the youngest
Even if fans of the blue hedgehog are mostly those who discovered the saga on MegaDrive, it should be noted that Sonic Prime is a series aimed at the youngest. In any case, this was specified by SEGA and Man of Entertainment, the producers of the animated series.
The 24-episode animated adventure, aimed at kids ages 6-11, will star the video game’s famous “Blue Lightning” in an explosive adventure where the fate of a strange new multiverse rests in his gloved hands. More than a race against time to save the universe, Sonic’s adventure is a journey of self-discovery and redemption.
At the moment, Sonic Prime doesn’t have an exact release date, but the series should land on Netflix by the end of the year.
About the summer game festival
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcing video games that will come this year or the following years. In 2020, journalist and presenter Geoff Keighley launched this now essential festival for the first time. Last year the show featured stunning images of the Elden Ring; So the third iteration inevitably raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The Summer Game Fest takes place this Thursday, June 9th at 8pm. The show will again be followed by a Day of the Devs session dedicated to the independent scene.
How can I follow Summer Game Fest 2022?
In particular, on JV, alongside Maxildan and Aymeric Lallée, we will be responding live to announcements from the LeStream channel. The show will also be shown directly as a teaser on JV’s homepage.

What is the program for Summer Game Fest 2022?
Among the games not to be missed is in particular the legacy of Dead Space, The Callisto Protocol, which shows us its first gameplay images.

Also on the programme: Gotham Knights, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, the first game from Aaryn Flynn’s studio (ex-Bioware) Nightingale, the JRPG One Piece Odyssey, the free-to-play Warframe or even Planet of Lana. Geoff Keighley further announced: “We have some new game announcements for this show and hopefully some surprises if all goes well.
