One of the ways Sega celebrated 30 years of Sonic the Hedgehog last year was by transforming the blue blur into a VTuber. This was followed by his lovable sidekick Tails receiving the same treatment and now it’s Knuckles’ time to shine.
Yes, that’s right – in another official Sonic livestream in Japan, Knuckles has made his debut as a VTuber – delivering a message alongside Sonic. It seems like the perfect time, considering how much success Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (featuring Knuckles) has had at the box office.
Knuckles wasn’t the only new VTuber to make an appearance, either. Amy Rose was also teased at the last minute. You can see her around in action at the 01:56:00 mark in the YouTube livestream recording below:
If you’re not clued up on VTubers, they’re 3D streamers voiced by real people. Sonic and Tails have received English versions, so we’ll be sure to let you know if Knuckles and Amy follow.
