Sega has revealed quite a number of brand new characters today for the new Sonic Boom games and television series. Fans were given information as well as concept art for these additions. While I’m sure these characters will play a relatively important role in the new series, non of them will be playable.
Old Tucker is a happy go lucky farmer who mistakenly took the easy route to grow his village’s crops. Despite some setbacks, he is still able to spread his funny, southern charm with the villagers. Old Tucker is in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.
Hayward, the hopeless farmhand, is a dreamer who constantly wants to go above and beyond to prove himself to others around him. Always looking to be a part of something bigger, something that makes a difference, he is in search for a reason or way to help to just show what he can do. Hayward is in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.
Salty is the self-proclaimed captain of the ocean. He is overly confident in his domain and does not care to take the opinions of others around him into consideration. His egocentric attitude is apparent, even though his words and actions are not always justified. In Salty’s world, it’s his way or the seaway! Salty is in the Sonic Boom animation and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.
Pepper, a sailor like his brother Salty, was raised by his father to sail the open seas, but was never respected by his brother. When left a nautical compass by their father, Salty took it for himself and they haven’t spoken since. Now Pepper captains his own ship with a keen understanding about the ways of the seas, a poetic sensibility, and occasional battle with Salty on the open waters. Pepper is in the Sonic Boom animation and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.
Q-N-C (pronounced “Quincy”) is the main guide through both the Wii U and 3DS versions of Sonic Boom. Created by the evil mastermind Lyric, Q-N-C is an ancient robot whose wires were crossed and can now think for itself. Shedding its evil past, Q-N-C aims to please and help people whenever possible. Q-N-C is in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal.
Hokey and Pokey have been married for over 175 years and have an everlasting spark between them…until that spark is lit and the bickering begins! Always poking fun at each other and arguing over who knows best, this elderly couple proves there is a soul mate for everyone. Hokey and Pokey are in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.
Perci is beautiful yet tough as nails; her street smarts and tough exterior allow her to be ready to protect the town when the time comes. Perci is in the Sonic Boom animation and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.
Foreman Fred is in way over his head and knows it. Promoted too early – and probably without merit – he knows the rules and regulations but just doesn’t know how to apply them. The fact that he’s not the quickest on his feet, only makes matters worse. Foreman Fred is in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.
Doc Ginger’s strong southern charm and kindness should never be mistaken for weakness. Even during the most frantic of situations she remains calm, levelheaded and unafraid to provide the team with sweet but stern direction. Doc Ginger is in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.
Cliff is the wise and well -educated elder statesman of the village who knows the history of Lyric and his metal army. Respected and trusted, he’s been searching for something for a very long time and will fulfill it anyway he sees fit. Cliff is in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.
The French master chef has prepared nearly every dish in the world and seen every kitchen. A true perfectionist of his craft, Chef Woody wants no person or thing to come between him and the perfect dish. Graceful and eloquent by nature, hot blooded in the name of cuisine. Chef Woody is in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.
Fastidious Beaver is a fussy, uptight beaver with a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Fastidious Beaver is in the Sonic Boom animation and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.
Mayor Fink is a typical politician – a fast talker out of both sides of his mouth. Loud and confident, he feels in control no matter what the situation, even if he has no idea what he’s doing. Mayor Fink is in the Sonic Boom animation and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.
That’s quite the line up of newcomers. It’s nice to see some fresh faces in the Sonic universe, even if it is an alternate one. Hopefully these characters won’t be added to the list of other forgotten faces of the franchise.
The Sonic Boom TV show and Sonic Boom games will be releasing this fall.
What do you think of the new character designs?
