2019 wasn’t the best year for Sonic the Hedgehog, but it was still quite eventful. He made cameos in Cartoon Network shows, appeared in his own series of animations and his new game Team Sonic Racing was released on multiple platforms including the Nintendo Switch.
This year, however, is already shaping up to be something special. Next month, Sonic is appearing alongside James Marsden and Jim Carrey in his first live-action movie. According to a recent video tweet by Sega, there’s even more planned for the fastest hedgehog after this. Take a look below:
While this might look like your average video, it’s not. According to Sonic the Hedgehog’s social media and PR head Aaron Webber, there are hidden messages within it. Fortunately, fans have already found them (thanks, @TailsChannel):
It began in 2015
A glimmer of a flame
Growing with each success
Enduring every challenge
Within this, my last puzzle
Remember the words
Ignis aurum probat [Latin for ‘Fire tests gold’]
This next chapter belongs to you
As pointed out by Siliconera, the next Sonic game is already in development. Apart from this, producer Takashi Iizuka has previously said the big year for Sega’s hedgehog will be 2021 when he celebrates his 30th anniversary.
