Sega Reveals New Sonic Animated Web Short – “Rise of The Wisps”
To celebrate the upcoming launch of Sonic Colors: Ultimate, Sega has released the first episode of a new two-part animated web series, Rise of the Wisps, introducing fans to the new Jade Wisp and welcoming the return of Sonic, Tails and the notorious Dr. Eggman from the Sonic Colors universe.
In today’s episode, Sonic and Tails are joined by a lone Jade Wisp, who narrowly escapes the deceptively charming Sweet Mountain ride at Dr. Eggman’s Incredible Interstellar Amusement Park. Together, Sonic, Tails and their new companion, must band together to uncover Dr. Eggman’s evil plot to harness the Wisps’ powers and take over the universe.
The “Rise of the Wisps” animated series continues the celebration of Sonic’s 30th Anniversary in preparation for the release of Sonic Colors: Ultimate, a remaster of the 2010 Wii platformer, Sonic Colors, coming both digitally and physically to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on September 7th, with a digital-only release on PC via the Epic Games Store.
