One of the ways Sega celebrated its 30th anniversary the hedgehog Sonic last year was turning the blue blur into a VTuber. This was followed by his lovable sidekick Tails who received the same treatment and now it’s Knuckles’ time to shine.
Yes, that’s right – in another official Sonic livestream in Japan, the Knuckles made their debut as VTuber – delivering a message alongside Sonic. It seems like the perfect time, considering how successful it is Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (with Knuckles) has had at the box office.
Knuckles was also not the only new VTuber to emerge. Amy Rose was also teased at the last minute. You can see her in action at 01:56:00 in the YouTube livestream recording below:
If you are not familiar with VTubers, those 3D streamers are tuned by real people. Sonic and Tails have received English versions, so we’ll be sure to let you know if Knuckles and Amy follow suit.
