We slept on this one a couple days ago, but it's at least worth mentioning that Sega plans to continue the Sonic Boom series with another Nintendo 3DS game.

Real life is gross, and Scientifically Accurate videos pop up from time to time to remind us that our favorite characters would be disgusting if they were real. Thus, it should come as no surprise that Sonic the Hedgehog and his friends aren't an exception, as you'll see after the jump.
Looks like those rumors from late last year of Sony making a movie based on the Sonic the Hedgehog game series have panned out.
