It’s been a while since we got details regarding the two upcoming Sonic games scheduled for this year, but the wait is almost over! We’ll finally be getting some updates at SXSW in Austin, Texas on March 16th.

The panel will feature many of the same members as the Sonic event last July, meaning it will either be the best thing ever or a cringe-fest waiting to happen, depending on your reaction to that 4-hour long saga.

It will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. CT. You can read the full overview below, courtesy of the official SXSW schedule:

Dive into the world of Sonic the Hedgehog in this exclusive behind-the-scenes look at both Sonic Mania and the upcoming Sonic 2017! With presenters from SEGA and Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka, this panel will answer questions about both games, showcase a new reveal for each title, and will discuss Sonic’s resurgence in the world of gaming since the reveal of both games. Of course, with Sonic involved, who knows what other surprises might be in store?

It’s probably a safe bet to say we’ll hear a Sonic Mania release date at the panel, but how much is shown of Project Sonic 2017 we can only speculate. Either way, we’ll be sure to bring you coverage as it happens!

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
