A new short teaser has dropped ahead of the Super Bowl for the upcoming release of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which gave us quite a few new scenes from the sequel. Most of the trailer focuses primarily on offering more from Idris Elba‘s Knuckles the Echidna but there’s one major reveal that came out of nowhere. We did get a tease that Sonic and Tails are flying towards something but it wasn’t until now that it turns out it is the Death Egg Robot. He’s quite a bit larger than what he was in the games, but the design seems to stick closely to what we’ve seen in the original Sonic the Hedgehog 2 game that will inspire parts of the game’s story – most notably Tails inclusion. You can check it out in all its glory here from the TV sot:
That design is insane, especially in how well it was translated into live-action. He even still has the pointy carrot-like nose and the same design he had on his shoulders from the original game. There are naturally some changes, such as the lack of his glasses but they might’ve wanted to give the giant robot a chance to emote with his eyes. We don’t see the entire body, but it does look like it’s quite a massive take on the iconic robot design. It’s also great to see Dr. Robotnik move away from his white, Apple-inspired design to embrace the more colorful takes from the games.
