Fans of Sega's 90s-obsessed blue mascot are in for a real treat coming soon to a tabletop near you soon. Steamforged Games, creators of many tabletop/video game hybrids announced Sonic The Card Game along with updates on several of their other upcoming games.
Sonic The Card Game - Dropping The Hedgehog
Steamforged stealth-dropped news about the upcoming Sonic The Card Game at the very bottom of a list of their upcoming releases as part of the virtual GAMA festival currently going on. The drop doesn't give away many details about the game itself, but we know it's going to be a cross between card game and race, something that makes a lot of sense considering 'gotta go fast' is Sonic's main tagline. It's possible that the card game might follow a similar vein to Sonic Crash Course, another family-friendly Sonic game that tasks players with racing each other on the tabletop.
Perhaps one of the most conspicuous elements we do know about is the title. In most cases, when a property about the blue blur releases it tends to have his full title. Sonic The Card Game seems to have dropped the 'the hedgehog' section of his name, making for a much more fluid title. While the video game world has plenty of 'the hedgehog'-less media, outside of video games it's much harder to separate Mr.Needlemouse from his full name.
Other Interesting Tidbits On The Horizon
As well as Sonic the Card Game Steamforged also dropped some more reminders about their upcoming catalog, including another card game based on PacMan as well as several beast-themed expansions for Horizon Zero Dawn: The Board Game. The main feature fo these new expansions seems to be bigger and stronger creatures for you to hunt, including a Stormbird, a Thundermaw, and a Rockbreacker from the titular game. There's also a "riddle" at the bottom of the page that is very clearly hinting at a Sea of Thieves game, so that's also on the way soon presumably.
You can find out all about these upcoming releases and new games from Steamforged's website. We currently have no news about a release date for Sonic the Card Game.
