Sonic Superstars Opening Animation Showcases Allies and Old Enemies

Watch Sonic, Tails, Amy and Knuckles smash Eggman’s robots in this animated short before the game’s release this Fall.

Sega has released the opening animation for the upcoming 2.5D platformer Sonic Superstars. It showcases the core cast as they do what they do best: Destroying Dr Eggman’s machines. Check it out below.

Developed by Arzest (Balan Wonderworld), Sonic Superstars takes place in the new Northstar Islands, with Sonic, Amy, Tails and Knuckles being playable. The Chaos Emeralds grant powerful new abilities, like multiplying characters, letting you traverse up waterfalls, or changing forms.

Along with Eggman, players will battle Fang from Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble and a strange new enemy. While the game is playable solo, up to four players can team up in drop-in/drop-out local co-op for the entire campaign for the first time in the series history.

Sonic Superstars releases this Fall for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch. Retailers listed the platformer for release on October 17th, so stay tuned for an official announcement from Sega in the coming months.
