by on September 21, 2023

Sega has released a new animation short for Sonic Superstars called “Trio of Trouble” that follows baddies Dr Eggman, Fang, and Trip in a prologue that is set before the game itself. It’s also the first time Fang has been in an animation.

The description for the animation is: “While the trio navigates a perilous ruin, Fang the Hunter will need to muster all his cunning to overcome past mistakes and escape the coils of a fierce new enemy. Meanwhile, Eggman will discover what may be the key to his next dastardly scheme”.
