Get ready to hit Sonic speed! Celebrate Sonic’s birthday with a return to the classic Sonic style in an endless runner that harkens back to the platform era of the SEGA® Mega Drive™! First launched in Japan in February, Sonic Runners™ will be available worldwide* on Thursday, June 25 as a free download for iOS™ and Android™ devices.


The 2D side-scrolling infinite runner is the first free-to-play (F2P) title created exclusively for mobile by the renowned Sonic Team™. Featuring Sonic, Tails and Knuckles, players race through a challenging endless world where they must navigate the lightning-fast environment to collect rings and gems, all while avoiding enemies from all directions. Hardcore gamers and fans of the classic SEGA Mega Drive days will immediately recognise the iconic Sonic in his retro-inspired 16-bit environment.

Sonic Runners™ will be available worldwide* for iOS and Android on Thursday, June 25.
