At the end of last January we heard the news that Roger Craig Smith, son of Sonic in the English version of the video games of the saga for more than a decade (in Spain, Jonathan López and Ángel De Gracia have been in charge of interpreting the character), I was going to stop playing the famous blue hedgehog. The decision was made public by the actor himself, although it was later made official by the actor himself. SEGA through an emotional farewell posted on Twitter.
However, today Sonic fans can be in luck because Roger Craigh Smith has announced that he is reprising his role: “I officially return to voice Sonic in video games”, type the actor on your personal Twitter account: “I hope to honor your support and passion (…) Thank you from the bottom of my blue heart“, he ends up saying in the tweet that you can see published under these lines, in which he also thanks the company for supporting his return.
I can’t fully express my gratitude for the @sonic_hedgehog crew and community.🙏
I hope to honor your support and passion as I’m officially back voicing #SonicTheHedgehog in games.
Can’t wait for ya to see what we have planned!
