Play Sonic on TikTok With This Collaboration Impact
TikTok is working with Sega and Dreams Come True on a Sonic the Hedgehog game effect. It will be available from January 11, 2022 and appears to be exclusive in Japan. When uploading TikTok videos with Sonic effect and certain hashtags, you also have the chance to win exclusive prizes. [Thanks, Gamer!]
As mentioned before, the Sonic collaboration is between TikTok, Sega and the band Dreams Come True. When using the effect, you can use your face to control Sonic as he runs across the screen. Dreams Come Trues “Tsugi wa Se ~ no de! On The Green Hill – Masado & Miwasco Version “plays. This is a version of “Green Hill Zone” with lyrics. Masato Nakamura, founder and current member of Dreams Come True, worked on Green Hill Zone for the first Sonic the Hedgehog game thirty years ago.
Here is an example from the Sega TikTok official account:
I had Sonic running! The song is fun and fun ♡ (the face is desperate) I wonder if anyone can sort this out! ?? ?? !! In the game with #SEGA #SEGA #Sonic #Sonic #Sonic Run #tiktok
♬ Original music – SEGA Official – SEGA Official
As for the prizes, if you upload a TikTok with the Sonic effect and then mark it as #tiktok で ゲ ー ム 中 or # ソ ニ ッ ク ラ ン, you are automatically eligible to enter the raffle. The first hashtag is simply “Play games with TikTok” and the second is “Sonic Run”. Two winners can receive a Sonic merchandise set (t-shirt, towel, mug, tin badge, keychain), while eight winners will receive one of these five items. This event ends on February 11, 2022.
The TikTok campaign commemorates the 30th birthday of Sonic the Hedgehog. Other collaborations include one with Monster Hunter Rise, which came out in November 2021. During this event, you could get cosmetics that made your character and companions look like Sonic the Hedgehog or Tails.
The Sonic the Hedgehog TikTok effect and event will be available until February 11, 2022.
