Awoo.

Sonic/Sega character cameo in Sony's Pixels?

Sonic does have an 8-bit counterpart on the Game Gear, but yeah.  I think this movie is supposed to be an homage to the 80's.  Plus, the synopsis on Wikipedia clearly says the movie takes place in 1982, before Sonic was even considered.

 

It wouldn't shock me if they made some very subtle reference though; however, I doubt that will be the case. ^^

Pixels is mainly 80s video games, which is a time period Sonic isn't from. So there's no chance of seeing him there.

If he was, we would have heard Roger Craig Smith getting extremely excited over getting to be Sonic in a movie again.

If by some chance this movie does well and merits a sequel, I anticipate they'd find some way to move into the 90s with the next one. He's likely sitting this one out though.

No we wouldn't have, actually, because presumably that would be some sort of twist and so he wouldn't be able to talk about it.

Not only that, but that would imply that the video games that DO appear in Pixels would be saying more than just their typical video game sound effects ( Pacman's "waka wakka", DK's growls), and from what we've seen/heard, the video game characters don't speak.

Sonic, no. But as for the SEGA part of this question, folks seem to be ignoring the likes of OutRun and stuff.

 

That said, I think the trailers have pretty much shown everything we're getting. SEGA would've mentioned by now if something from their 80s back catalogue was in.

Zaxxon would fit the bill, and it was a humongously popular game in 1982 so it would even make a lot of sense to include it. But as a Happy Madison production, I don't think the effort required to make people recognize what it is would be likely to be expended when they can just spend half of the running time showing Pac Man and the Space Invaders aliens and not bother.
