Sonic the Hedgehog is in Fall Guys now, God help us

We pictured the theme of Fall Guys Season 2 was medieval fantasy, but it turns out it’s whatever the heck Mediatonic want it to be, because the developer of the battle royale multiplayer game starring hyper-competitive jumping beans has led and contributed a Sonic the Hedgehog costume.

We’ve seen a few crossover costumes in Fall Guys already: you can play as Chell and P-Body from Portal, for example, and there’s also one for Scout from Team Fortress 2. Now Mediatonic has teamed up with Sega to create a Sonic skin and it’s … upsetting.

All the main elements of Sonic are present: there’s the blue fur, the spiky back, the speedy red shoes, and the classic animation gloves. However, this is a costume for Fall Chap nuts, and so Sonic’s signature glare formulates the beans’ white faceplates, without there being a snout or speak underneath it. The result is something far more menacing than any character we can recall consider in Sonic canon to date. Another disquieting point of the outfit is the clearly visible line bisecting it into top and bottom halves.
