Sackboy Sonic Houses Sega Secrets

This is too nice to really pass up.

Earlier today, Sega of America’s intrepid team of community people opened up a box sent to them by a fan.

While this should usually set off red flags and require the assistance of the San Francisco Bomb Squad, the package contained an adorable (and slightly creepy) Sackboy version of Sonic.

But the question arises as what the blue puppet contains in its belly…

In a video recording, Fabian Doehla jokes the secret plans for Shenmue 3 are hidden inside the stuffed animal’s zippered stomach.

However, what if this little critter inherits the demonic abilities of a certain other demented stuffed toy of the series? This could mean serious trouble for Sega of America and a fan plot far more heinous than anything concocted by upset Sonic fans. It’s possible the innards of the plush contain a soul devouring black hole, much like Ghost Pokemon Dusknoir.

Sonic Retro will attempt to reach out to Sega of America, assuming they have not all been devoured by potentially demonic powers residing in the toy.

Little Big Planet getting Sonic Sackboys.

Sack SonicAlthough they don’t seem to be available yet on Sony’s US Playstation Network store, it appears that Sega’s cracked a little deal and there is now Sackboy costumes for some of your favorite and not-so-favorite Sonic characters! These include Sonic the Hedgehog, Tails, Knuckles, Werehog and Dr. Eggman Costumes. For the most part though, I’m simply curious how the licensing worked out on this one. In any case, this is a nice win for Sonic fans on the PS3 that play Little Big Planet. At least if you’re in the right region for now.
