Sonic the Hedgehog 3 has been eagerly anticipated since both its predecessor, Sonic the Hedgehog, and its sequel, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, received favorable reviews.
One of gaming’s most recognizable characters, Sonic, has been a staple of the Sonic series since its inception. It was just a matter of time before the character was made into a film, which was both critically and commercially acclaimed.
The newly released sequel features Sonic and Tails battling Dr. Robotnik and Knuckles in a bid to save the world.
Is the third part of Sonic the Hedgehog in the works?
Knuckles spin-off program and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 were confirmed by Paramount before the premiere of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Though a release date has not yet been set, the revelation of its development has generated enough enthusiasm for those eagerly awaiting its release.
The fact that Sonic the Hedgehog 2 hadn’t yet been launched demonstrates how confident the studio is in the sequel and the overall franchise.
Which Characters Will Return for Sonic The Hedgehog 3?
Sonic the Hedgehog will be voiced by Ben Schwartz once again, as he did in the prior two editions. Miles “Tails” Prower and Knuckles the Echidna (Idris Elba) complete the legendary three with Colleen O’Shaughnessey.
James Marsden and Tika Sumpter are anticipated to reprise their roles as Sonic’s human family, Tom and Maddie Wachowski. Dr. Robotnik was Jim Carrey’s iconic adversary in the first two films, however, it is not certain if he will reprise his role in Sonic the Hedgehog 3.
Wade Whipple, the deputy sheriff of Green Hills, and Maddie’s sister Rachel, played by Adam Pally and Natasha Rothwell, are both likely to return. There is no word yet on Lee Majdoub’s Agent Stone returning, given his role as Robotnik’s aide in the show’s first season.
Who is “Shadow the hedgehog”?
One of Sonic’s enemies, Shadow the Hedgehog appears in a number of Sonic games. Project Shadow’s anti-Sonic, Gerald Robotnik created him as part of his grandiose plan to improve our world.
Originally published for the Sega Dreamcast, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle was re-released on the Nintendo GameCube as Sonic Adventure 2 Battle in 2001.
Many characters’ points of view are represented in Sonic Adventure 2, including Shadow, who struggles with his fading memories of Maria Robotnik, Gerald’s granddaughter. After a long run as a series mainstay, he’s now playable in Sonic the Hedgehog spinoffs like Sonic Riders.
Sonic The Hedgehog 3: Expected Release Date
Sonic the Hedgehog 3’s release date hasn’t been officially revealed, but speculation is possible. Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 were launched in the first quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2022, respectively.
This suggests that Sonic the Hedgehog 3 will arrive in the first quarter of 2024, based on previous releases. Also, given that the Knuckles spinoff show is scheduled to premiere in 2023, it would make sense for Paramount to air both shows one year apart.
While the actual release date of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is still unknown, it can be said that a new adventure involving the blue speedster is on the horizon at the very least.
