As promised during May’s 30th Anniversary Sonic Central presentation, a new animation project from Sega and Tyson Hesse is now available for your viewing pleasure. Sonic Colors: Rise of the Wisps – Part 1 features Sonic and Tails meeting a Jade Wisp who’s just barely avoided a terrible fate. Who else could be behind it but the despicable Dr. Eggman?

 

 

Well, turns out Metal Sonic is who, having been put in charge of the much more bumbling Cubot and Orbot. Highlights include Sonic’s distinct lack of patience or interest in the actual story’s events, the team of Wisp freedom fighters, and the always welcome Sonic Colors announcer voice.

Look forward to future parts, and of course the release of Sonic Colors: Ultimate on September 7th.
