Sonic the Hedgehog 3 might draw from Sonic Adventure 2

The two Sonic the Hedgehog films were surprise hits considering the fate of most video game adaptations. They both had “fresh” reviews from the critics on Rotten Tomatoes, but more importantly, they were box office hits, earning over $700 million combined. As such, a third film is inevitable, and some fans of the games are wondering where the films could go next.

At a recent Comic-Con, writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller gave a hint as to where they’re looking for inspiration for Sonic the Hedgehog 3 [be warned, this is a spoiler for Sonic the Hedgehog 2]; “The fact that Shadow will clearly be progressing in the franchise doesn’t, I think, suggest that we’d like to incorporate elements from both Sonic Adventure 2 and Shadow the Hedgehog, its solo spinoff game.”

Shadow was introduced in a mid-credits scene at the end of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 that revealed an abandoned science facility that was the central hub for the covert operation “Project Shadow” 50 years ago. Sonic 2 shows Shadow sleeping in a glass tube prison, but before the film goes black, we see the character open his red eyes and awaken from his decades-long slumber.

While players generally like the character, its spin-off Shadow the Hedgehog has not been well received. He starts out as a rival to Sonic, which is obvious since he’s a dark or shadowy version of everyone’s favorite speedy blue hedgehog. In the games, however, he ends up being an ally of Sonic, so it’s likely that Sonic 3’s storyline will follow that arc.

The Sonic movies have turned out to be the most successful video game adaptations, but that’s not saying much since they were generally synonymous with disasters. However, that hasn’t stopped every streaming service currently adapting Halo, The Last of Us, Fallout, Mass Effect, and Metal Gear Solid.
