HYENAS reveals playable character Hero-Ki
Inspired by SEGA's beloved mascot.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiFAFeS5Cvk





Quote
Hero-Ki was a minor celebrity back on Earth thanks to his cosplay and charity work but after being evacuated to The Taint, he’s had to turn those same skills towards more nefarious pursuits.
Armed with a specially modified camera to capture a target’s likeness and cosplay as them, Hero-Ki can use his penchant for disguise to evade threats and exploit the environment in HYENAS, as only the sharpest-eyed rival will be able to detect the clues that reveal him as an imposter.

I notice his role is similar to that of Spy (able to disguise and sneak up on enemies), you'd think he'd be more of a Scout or something.

Spy, Ninja, and Thief... they're usually identified as fast characters.
For me that Sonic costume does suit him as spy.

I guess in a way sure. Plus it's suppose to be a rag-tag team, not professionals. It reminds me a bit of Gotham City Imposters.

Samba de Amigo: Party Central adds two Sonic songs and a cameo from the blue blur himself



Quote
Sonic appearing in other Sonic Team games was a highlight of the Dreamcast era, so it was delightful to see the press release from SEGA this morning revealing that Sonic himself will be making a cameo in the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive Samba de Amigo: Party Central! Sonic and City Escape will play host to Amigo and his friends as players shake it to two songs from the Sonic franchise: “Escape From the City” from Sonic Adventure 2 and “Fist Bump” from Sonic Forces.
Check out the press release in the article link below.

That got me thinking... Gotham City Imposters was about a gang war between those who idolized specific figures in the Batman franchise. What would such a game be like with... I dunno, Sonic and Eggman? Or just Sega and Nintendo in general?

I wonder if Silver even knows what ice is?

Concern over E3 2023's future is continung to grow, prompting more publishers to drop out behind Nintendo, Xbox, Sony, and Ubisoft.
SEGA confirmed to IGN that it would not be attending the show after all, saying in a statement, "After careful consideration, we have decided not to participate in E3 2023 as an exhibitor.
We look forward to sharing more information on announced and unannounced projects in the future."
