The folks over at Sega certainly have reason to celebrate: their mobile platformer Sonic Dash has been downloaded more than 100 million times. That’s almost as much as the entire populations of Spain and France combined. Naturally, the studio wants to reward their community for having reached this incredible milestone. In order to do so, Sega has teamed up with another iconic mobile gaming studio. Rovio Entertainment’s Angry Birds are making an appearance in the endless runner. Red, Chuck, and Bomb are going to become playable characters in Sonic Dash.
We were thrilled with the opportunity to work with Rovio on this integration. The expressive, colorful, and fun characters from Angry Birds Epic lend themselves flawlessly to Sonic Dash and really enhance the overall experience.
Yup, not just the regular versions of the feathery friends, but their RPG versions will appear in the fast-paced platformer. The event will take place for three weeks, featuring one of the Angry Birds characters for each week. In order to unlock Red Knight, Chuck Mage, and Bomb Pirate, players will have to collect the special Angry Birds Epic tokens that are available randomly within a level. Naturally, they can also be purchased with premium currency during the event, but where’s the fun in that?
The event is available for all mobile devices.
