If the events of the new game The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog are to be taken seriously, then Sonic The Hedgehog might be officially dead!
The new murder mystery game was launched today, April 1st. So that is important to take into consideration.
But, on the other hand… it is also a very real, very playable game that has been published by SEGA themselves.
So while you won’t wanna necessarily consider the events of this new April Fool’s title to be Sonic mainline canon, it’s most definitely part of the real Sonic franchise.
The description on the Steam page for this game even reads: “You know what they say: everything is canon”.
But they are quick to clarify: The Sonic Team did not develop this video game.
April Fool’s jokes or not – this is a real Sega game, a real Sonic game, and you can really play it right now.
