Sonic Superstars still doesn’t have a firm release date, but Sega revealed a new tidbit about the game today. The retro throwback will receive a Lego-themed DLC, though its not fully clear what the expansion entails just yet.

Sonic Central - June 23rd, 2023

The news comes from today’s Sonic Central stream, which unveiled a batch of updates on the iconic series. The presentation closed out with a segment that included new footage for Sonic Superstars and a quick developer interview. Fans figured the showcase would reveal the game’s official release date, but that didn’t happen. Instead, Sega’s big news came in the form of DLC.

It’s not exactly clear how the LegoDLC works, but it got an impressive trailer during the showcase. The clip shows a full stop-motion battle between Lego Sonic and Eggman, but it doesn’t appear to be actual gameplay footage. All we really learned for sure is that players can unlock a Lego Eggman skin by preordering the game, which had been previously revealed. Otherwise, we’ll have to wait to see the full scope of the collaboration.

The rest of the Sonic Central stream was similarly light on new announcements. We got a new trailer for Sonic Origins Plus, which launches today, as well as a refresher on what’s coming to Sonic Frontiers‘ birthday DLC, also available today. Otherwise, the show was more focused on brand partnerships and merch, with news on Sonic-themed Crocs, guitars, toys, and more.

As for Sonic Superstars, you can still expect it to launch sometime this fall for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.

A Sonic game that plays like Fall Guys is coming to mobile
A cinematic shot of Sonic in Sonic Rumble's announcement trailer.

Sega unveiled a new Sonic the Hedgehog game today, and it's a multiplayer game for mobile devices that's reminiscent of battle royale platformers like Fall Guys.

Titled Sonic Rumble, this battle royale game sees 32 players compete as they dash and jump their way through levels. Mediatonic's Fall Guys is the most immediate comparison to draw based on the gameplay briefly shown off in its reveal trailer, but Sonic Rumble does stand out with levels that feel uniquely tailored to the series' iconography and 2D platformer sections that call back to Sonic's roots. A lot of Sonic the Hedgehog characters appear to be playable and can be further customized with in-game items.
