That’s Gamertainment – Sonic Boom


The Adventure of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog (Sonic SatAM to some), Sonic Underground, Sonic X. These are the great four Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons. Each one having their fans and detractors (Me? I’ve been an Adventures’ baby since the beginning) but they’ve been entertaining enough for kids and gamers alike. However its been a while since we seen the fastest thing alive on our screens in a non-console capacity. Enter Sonic Boom, a new CGI animated show featuring Sonic, Tails, Amy and super sized Knuckles. Details are a little light but it does seem closest to the Adventure of Sonic the Hedgehog with a little SatAM thrown in. Wait! There’s more! They are also release Sonic Boom the  video game for Nintendo 3DS & Wii U; those titles will serve as prequels to the show.  So Sega seems to be trying the Marvel method of banding this time, will it generate the next generation of Sonic fans or will this gamble not paid off. I don’t know but I’m willing to give it a shot – stay tuned.
