Sonic Superstars

There’s a four-player co-op, and fans will enjoy what the team has worked on. If you head to the game’s website, an exclusive in-game reward will be available at launch.

Brands are also collaborating with Sega on the launch, and you can play as Lego Sonic in Sonic Superstars. Lego Eggman is also a skin for those who pre-0rder.
