Despite being released just a few months ago, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has already featured various cameos from the biggest names in the gaming industry. Enter the Gungeon’s Bullet Kin, Hotline Miami’s Chicken Costume, Half-Life’s Gordon Freeman, and Portal 2’sPeabody have all made a special appearance in the game so far, with fans expecting a lot more recognizable characters to follow.
Fall Guys Season 2’s first crossover cameo is coming, with developer Mediatonic announcing that Sega has partnered with the studio to feature a new Sonic the Hedgehog skin to the game. The skin will be released on October 14 and will cost a staggering 10 crowns. Players who plan to get the new skin should start winning some matches now.
The cosmetic brings the Blue Blur to Fall Guys in a stunning way, conceiving the character with a bean-like body and a small hole resembling the iconic Fall Guy-shaped face. It includes a few recognizable features of Sonic’s design too such as its red shoes, white gloves, pointy ears, and long quills.

Seeing as the superhero has become a popular meme in the gaming community for the past years, this new endeavor is likely to summon fresh content from Fall Guys players all over the internet. It will be interesting to see if more characters will get the chance to invade the game later in the new season.
Besides Sonic’s Fall Guys cameo and other exciting crossover events, the Blue Blur has been out of the spotlight from new games during the past several years. Sega is reportedly holding back any significant announcements on Sonic until his 30th anniversary next year, with many anticipating that the quick hedgehog’s newest game appearance will be fully revealed then.
This will be something really memorable since fans of Sonic were disappointed with the last main game in the series – Sonic Forces. Hopefully, the developers will try and take the franchise back to its roots.
Until then, Sonic fans can enjoy Fall Guys Season 2 with the character being introduced in just a few days. Talking about Season 2, the major update has showcased a new medieval theme to the popular battle royale game, seeing players battle it out in the dangerous Knight Fever obstacle course and the Wall Guys map, which lets players navigate the map over towering castle walls.
Despite Season 2 being released a few days ago, Mediatonic is preparing to roll out another update which will make the game for fun and exciting. In the upcoming update, the developers are now allowing players to spectate their teammates automatically after getting eliminated.
The developers already mentioned that they are adding an autospectate mode back in August. This new feature is yet to be added so fans can only hope that it will be added as a mechanic to the game in the next update.
With more content promised to be added in the future, Fall Guys seems to still be providing a fun battle royale game for all ages.
