The Sonic x Hello Kitty Revealed, Dozens Thrilled
I have no love for either one of these things, but I couldn’t help but laugh at this collaboration between SEGA and Sanrio when I saw it over at NeoGAF. If you want your filthy mitts on one of these…things, then you should head over to Japan as they’ll be available soon:
“This Sonic x Hello Kitty Super Jumbo Plushy will be available in late July at Sega amusement facilities throughout Japan. The item is meant to commemorate the long awaited July 14 reopening of Sega’s Tokyo Joyopolis facility.”
To be quite honest, I’m probably not the best person to completely trash this weird mash-up piece of merchandise, as I almost bought a KISS x Mr. Potatohead set two years ago around Halloween.
We all have our stupid, stupid fandom, I guess.
During a Nintendo Direct presentation in late June, Reggie Fil-Aime announced that two Virtual Console games would be released through the 3DS eShop every week throughout July. Classic titles like The Legend of Zelda and Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 were revealed, but then there were some…other games listed that might not be so legendary.

I didn’t have a Sega Genesis growing up, so I’ve never been the gamer that’s held Sonic the Hedgehog in high regard. I’ve played through Sonic Adventure 2, but that’s been pretty much my overall experience with SEGA’s mascot UNTIL I ended up renting Sonic Generations through Redbox.
In the couple of days that I had with the title, I had fun trying to figure out how to cut my stage completion times and goofing around with the 3D platforming mechanics. I didn’t play enough of it to review here, but I feel completely comfortable with purchasing it brand new for this price through Amazon:
By comparison, if you wanted to play the downloadable-only Sonic 4, you would have to pay $10 for episode one and $15 for episode two. As far of episode three goes — nobody knows if it’ll ever exist!
Skip all that mess and pick this Sonic game up instead.
