In celebration of the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 film hitting theaters, Sega has been working to promote everyone’s favorite blue speedster in a variety of ways. Most recently, Sega shared the news that it has partnered with developer Gamefam to release a Sonic game on Roblox.
The game is called Sonic Speed Simulator and is set up as a free-to-play open-world online multiplayer game that’s available now to anyone interested in checking the experience out. In the press release for Roblox’s Sonic Speed Simulator, the game is described as follows:
We have officially partnered with @SEGA to bring @Sonic_Hedgehog to Roblox in our upcoming game Sonic Speed Simulator!— Gamefam Studios (@gamefamstudios) April 13, 2022
We worked with various sonic developers from the #Roblox community in order to make this possible!#RobloxDev

Not only is the game described as being the fastest in Roblox history, but it’s also the first time an incredibly popular, established video game character like Sonic has been officially featured in Roblox.
Adding to this, this isn’t the first ambitious project from Gamefam either, with the developer having partnered with companies like Mattel in the past to develop games like Hot Wheels Open World on Roblox. With that being said, it’s undoubtedly still a huge victory for the company to get Sega’s blessing in creating a game on Roblox like Sonic Speed Simulator.
