Everyone’s favorite fast blue hedgehog is speeding into an unlikely crossover with Minecraft. Thanks to the 30th anniversary of Sonic there is now a Minecraft Sonic DLC fans can grab starting today.
Available now through the Minecraft Marketplace, the new Minecraft x Sonic the Hedgehog DLC brings 3d runner action to the popular builder title. The trailer of the DLC is attached above.
The crossover DLC tasks players with completing a number of races where they must collect rings in typical Sonic fashion. Levels include things like Green Hill Zone and Chemical Plant Zone, but with a procedurally generated twist. On these maps there is a variety of obstacles to deal with including bosses. Also included in the pack characters including the likes of Shadow, Tails, Amy, and Dr. Robotnik.
To celebrate the event there is a The Hive hosted server event coming soon. It will take place over two-weeks and will feature mini-games and a few surprises according to the official reveal post.
This crossover is just one of many planned for the 30th anniversary of the Sonic game. A new movie, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, is coming on April 28, 2022. There is also a live-stream event that Sega is holding that will be happening soon.
