Giveaways at Sonic Boom

Sonic Boom 2012

We’re getting closer to Sonic Boom, and I don’t know about you, but we’re getting pretty excited about it here at SEGA. One of the things we’ve been working on is all the fun stuff we’ll be giving away to fans attending the event! We don’t want to give away all the surprises, but here’s a taste of what fans attending the event will be receiving.

Sonic Boom Tshirt 2012

T-shirts were a popular item last year, so we’re bringing them back! They are grey, with a simple and recognizable Sonic on the front, and the Sonic Boom logo on the back. We’ll have them in sizes S-XL.

Sonic Colors Pre-Order Hat!

Another popular item that we’re bringing back this year is the Sonic hat! It was so amazing last year to see an audience full of people wearing their Sonic hats, and we hope to see you all showing your Sonic love in these hats again this year.

Crush 40 will be playing live at both Summer of Sonic and Sonic Boom events, and special guests Jean Paul and Alex Makhlouf from Cash Cash will also playing live at Sonic Boom. Get ready to rock out to your favorite Sonic song with your fellow fans!
