Sega of America and PowerA have announced a new partnership to create, distribute, and sell a line of Sonic the Hedgehog-themed third-party gaming accessories. The initial product line, which is scheduled to launch tomorrow on Tuesday, August 8, includes controllers for Nintendo Switch and Xbox Series X|S, as well as a branded Nintendo Switch Protective Case. There’s also a TriFold Game Card Holder for Nintendo Switch cartridges, which features artwork of Sonic kicking something.
“As big fans ourselves, the PowerA team is thrilled to partner with the team at SEGA to bring Sonic the Hedgehog and friends to our controllers and accessories,” said Akio Strasser, Senior Global Marketing Director for PowerA. “With more than 30 years of Sonic, and multiple generations of gamers experiencing this franchise, we are so excited to bring these characters to life on our accessories for the first time.”
“Sonic is one of the most recognizable video game characters of all time! We are excited to be partnering with Power A to bring this core line of gaming peripherals to fans around the world,” said Michael Cisneros, Associate Director, Licensing. “At home or on the go, we hope that these will be your go-to gaming accessories no matter what game you are playing (but if you open your heart, we all know Sonic is your jam).”
