London and San Diego Hosting Sonic the Hedgehog Summer Conventions

Events

First up on July 7th 2012 in London, will be the fifth anniversary of Summer of Sonic – and SEGA are determined to make it the biggest and best show yet! Summer of Sonic is an all-day event that celebrates all aspects of the Sonic franchise. ‘Zoned’ areas will offer a range of different activities – budding artists can sit down at the fan art tables and compete in competitions, speed runners can challenge each other at the retro gaming pods, and the latest Sonic titles are available for fans to try before they’re even released.

Although it hasn’t been fully announced yet in detail, we could maybe expect to see Sonic 4: Episode II showcased at this event.

Almost one week after the London Summer of Sonic event, San Diego, CA will host the Sonic Boom event on Friday, July 13th (during San Diego Comic Con) at the House of Blues. Visitors wishing to attend will not be required to have a Comic Con badge. Hotels in the San Diego area fill up quickly for Comic Con, so if you will need a hotel room, you really need to start booking one now!

At the first Sonic Boom last year, fans had a chance to play Sonic Generations, get some great swag, enjoy a great musical performance from Crush40, and more. This year SEGA are aiming to make it a great time for Sonic fans of all ages with future announcements due in the next few weeks.

The official Summer of Sonic 2012 Website will be available soon on SummerofSonic.com
