Sonic Prime, the upcoming animated Sonic the Hedgehog show, has finally updated fans with a new trailer and winter 2022 release window. The show will be exclusive to Netflix. You can watch the full teaser trailer on Sonic the Hedgehog’s YouTube channel here:
The teaser has some decent, booming music and a lot of familiar faces. The new footage has rightly received almost unanimous praise for its animation, which looks dazzling and highly polished. Striking a fine balance between realism and fantasy, the textures have successfully translated Sonic’s game world without sacrificing their colorful and vibrant design.
There are mainly fight sequences in today’s trailer, which include a visually striking sense of speed and smooth movement. These instances probably explain the odd frame of an outstretched hand that received some criticism. It was probably a conscious choice.
Unfortunately, there is still no clear picture of the story, but the new teaser gives a few hints about Robotnik and Shadow. Hopefully they simply avoid too many spoilers that many trailers suffer from. Sonic has built up a lot of exciting stories over the years, and if rumors of a multiverse are to be believed, the show will ideally have equal parts plot and action.
It’s a welcome surprise that Sonic is looking at a renaissance, with a completely fresh direction in it Sonic limits and the ongoing Hollywood blockbuster movies. Sonic Borders has attracted some skepticism due to its combat and open world. But it’s only taken off for most fans, especially after a new trailer revealed the classic, golden Super Sonic.
For now, fans still have to wait for some Tails footage, but Sonic Prime has a good head start. While the teaser is quick, Sonic wouldn’t have it any other way.
