Sonic's celebrating more than 20 years as a video game icon. So it makes sense that Sega's giving their furry blue mascot a bit of a facelift—nothing drastic, mind you—along with a new game and TV show in the hopes of keeping the hedgehog moving at top speed.
You might be squinting to see what's different with ol' Sonic. The red scarf is the biggest change and he's got a bit of athletic tape wrapped around his wrists, hands, feet and ankles. It's part of Sonic Boom (trailer above), the new cross-platform refresh for Sonic, announced by Sega today at a press event in New York City. It starts with a previously announced upcoming animated series set to air on Cartoon Network, coupled with new games for the Wii U and 3DS.
