Sonic the Hedgehog and Friends are Now in Minecraft

Sonic the Hedgehog Minecraft

What better way to celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog’s 30th Anniversary than by putting him in Minecraft?

Well, by releasing Sonic Mania 2 for a start, but since that clearly isn’t going to happen we’ll take what we can get. And, from what we’ve seen of Minecraft‘s new Sonic the Hedgehog content, it’s almost as good as getting a new game.

The content isn’t free; at 1,340 Minecoins, it’s likely cost you around eight pounds to play. But it includes new levels (Green Hill Zone naturally included) monsters ripped from Sonic’s games and more. There are activities to engage in, including races that let you take on other players. The latter is certainly a surprise as we’ve never thought of Minecraft as a game that’s built for speed.


The Sonic the Hedgehog DLC is out now, and is available across all currently supported Minecraft platforms (so don’t count on seeing it in the PS3 version of Minecraft). You can only purchase it in game, which is where the 1,340 Minecoins come in. You can check out the trailer below for a taster.
