Sonic the Hedgehog 3 Movie Shadow Teaser
Jeff Fowler and SEGA’s Twitter accounts shared a teaser Sonic the Hedgehog 3 image featuring Shadow. Specifically, the teaser shows the lower half of Shadow’s body and the logo for the upcoming movie. Keen observers may note that the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 logo appears to be a reference to Sonic Adventure 2 from the SEGA Dreamcast. Since Shadow will be in the movie, it’s likely that the movie will include story beats from the fan-favorite game.
