Earlier this year we learned of some shake-ups in the established English voice cast for the Sonic the Hedgehog series. While there have been occasional, small scale recasts (as opposed to the massive shift tied to Sonic X in the mid-2000’s), it was announced that Roger Craig Smith, the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog for the last decade, would be leaving the role after the character’s crossover into Puyo Puyo Tetris 2.

Today, though, Smith has announced he’s back and way past cool once again.



The return is welcome, as Smith has grown in the role across both games and the Sonic Boom TV series. This places him as the most recurring voice of the character, a record he’ll continue to grow. Just in time too, as we’ll be learning about the series’ future in the Sonic Central 30th Anniversary stream tomorrow, May 27th.

Whether a similar return is due for Cindy Robinson, the previous voice of Amy Rose, remains to be seen. Other than these two, Mike Pollock confirmed he will still be proudly portraying Dr. Eggman and Colleen O’Shaughnessey commented that she isn’t finished as Tails yet for the franchise’s foreseeable future.
