Sonic Runners Releasing Worldwide on June 25th, Fire & Ice Coming to Japan (Update: Classic Sonic Joins Runners)

SEGA announced at the Sonic birthday event that’s taking place at Tokyo Joypolis that Sonic Runners will launch worldwide on June 25th. Despite only launching in Japan and Canada, the game has had a decent success up to now with more than 500,000 people having played it already. As of right now there’s little information about the worldwide release, but it’s safe to assume that it will launch on both iOS and Android.

It was also confirmed that the recently announced Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice will be released in Japan under the Sonic Toon name, with a live demo of the game being shown at the event.

Update: Turns out that the day after the game launches worldwide, that the classic, more pudgy Sonic will be an unlockable character. You’ll be able to unlock him between June 26th to July 10th.

    W-why’s the Sonic 1 cart locked on to Sonic & Knuckles in the screenshot? Will trying to pick Classic Sonic take me to the NO WAY! NO WAY! NO WAY? NO WAY! screen?

    Am I the only one who is wondering about the Sonic & Knuckles cart. Are SEGA trying to tell us something or is this just coincidence?

    “sonic boom fire and ice” I know I’m stating the obvious, but someone at Sonic Team is reading some of George R R Martin’s novels.
