After months of leaks surrounding what the crossover will offer, the official Fall Guys Twitter account has teased the crossover itself. Yesterday (August 8) the Twitter account parodied Eminem’s ‘Without Me’ as part of the announcement with the line “Guess who’s back, back again, Sonic’s back, with his friends.”

A number of leaks regarding this Fall Guys and Sonic The Hedgehog crossover have made their way online in recent months, but this announcement is the first official teaser in awhile. A Sonic costume was added in 2020, and this year’s Sonic Central stream confirmed the crossover, saying it arrives this August.

Fall Guys is no stranger to big crossovers, as it’s recently added limited-time Godzilla cosmetics, a crossover with Microsoft’s HaloSuper Monkey BallRatchet And Clank and even The Jungle Book amongst many others.

Beyond starring in Fall Guys, Sonic’s open-world debut in Sonic Frontiers is set to launch at an unspecified date this year. Job openings even indicate that a “narrative driven” mobile platformer is on the way for Sonic as well.
