Never one to back down from some odd releases, Sega is teaming up with U.K. book publisher Pan Macmillan to release Sonic’s return to hiding in giant pictures with lots of stuff around so you can seek him out. All those nightmares of Where’s Waldo on the NES are coming back, only in the original book form.
Where’s Sonic? A Search-and-Find Adventure takes environs based on classic Sonic stages, which judging by the cover we can safely assume they mean stages used in Sonic Generations, and tasks the reader to find Sonic wherever he may be hiding in thickets of side characters, villains, badniks, rings, and a whole laundry list of other things. The Generations theme is an appropriate choice considering Sega teamed with Ladybird publishing house back in the ’90s to release a similar book called, you guessed it, Where’s Sonic?
The book is set to hit British bookstores as soon as next Friday, Oct. 19 and can also be purchased from the official Sonic Merchandise site for those of you who can’t be bothered picking this up in public.
If anything, this may be a better alternative for the younger Sonic fans who may not show as much interest toward 300-page anthologies chronicling Sonic’s history, but no doubt some of you will be swinging for both.
