SEGA has declared 2024 'Fearless: Year of Shadow' in honour Sonic the Hedgehog's anti-hero.

Following last year's Fast. Friends. Forever program, which celebrated the special bond between Sonic and his pals Tails, Knuckles, and Amy Rose, and their fans, the gaming giant is paying homage to the fierce Shadow the Hedgehog.

It's certainly a jam-packed year, with the ‘Sonic X Shadow Generations’ game - a remaster of 2011’s 'Sonic Generations' - and the 'Sonic the Hedgehog 3' movie both on the way later this year.

There will be several chances to celebrate the antihero from Shadow’s Chaos Chocolate Pancakes at IHOP diners to the Sonic Speed Café, the official Sonic the Hedgehog themed restaurant, mobile game events, motorcycle tours, and much more.

Head to for more information.

Get involved with the below:
