We’re back, and this time we’re all powered up! We are pleased to officially announce the Summer of Sonic 2013 event!
What is the Summer of Sonic?
Since our humble beginnings back in 2008 the convention has grown from year to year, and weâ€™ve been able to give thousands of hardcore fans the opportunity to meet a whole bunch of Sonic celebrities – from musicians and comic artists to developers at Sonic Team themselves! But at its core, the Summer of Sonic is really all about coming together and making friends with fellow fans!
Date and Location
â€¦But enough about that. You guys and gals must be itching to know where and when we will be hosting Summer of Sonic this year, right? Well, we’re excited to be able to reveal that SoS 2013 will be held on Saturday 3rd August 2013, and will take place at the Westminster Central Hall in London, UK. Expect a full day’s worth of Sonic-based fun and entertainmentâ€¦ with a twist!
You might have noticed that Sonic is sharing the spotlight with another character on the Summer of Sonic website. That’s because, to mix things up a bit, we’ve decided to introduce a theme to this year’s convention. And the theme is – you guessed it – ‘Metal Sonic and Badniks’.
The robotic doppelgÃ¤nger of our speedy blue hero, and the collective metallic minions of Dr Eggman, have the spotlight to themselves for 2013. But what does that mean? Well, while we can’t give too much away at the moment, suffice it to say that many of our events and activities will be Metal Sonic or Badnik related.
Budding artists and cosplayers will be pleased to know our contests will be making a return, and we will reveal more details in the coming weeksâ€¦so get started on those costumes! Don’t worry, though, you won’t necessarily need a Metal Sonic or Badnik themed costume to enter the cosplay this yearâ€¦ although it might help!
So there you go – Saturday 3rd August 2013. London, UK. And after the convention is over, thereâ€™s still more Sonic fun to come, as our friends at SEGA of America will be hosting the third annual Sonic Boom event in St. Louis MO, USA on Saturday 10th August 2013. Find out more about that event right here.
We will soon release details on how you can snag yourself tickets for the convention, so until then, stay excited, and let’s enjoy the Road to Summer of Sonic 2013 together!
