Sonic & Tails visiting Phantasy Star Universe

This time Sonic & Tails will be joining in-game missions…

Sonic & Tails visiting the world of Phantasy Star Universe (or Online) has been a annual event that usually takes place around or on Sonic’s birthday, so it’s far from a surprise to see they’ll both be visiting the game today. Log onto Phantasy Star Universe today to wish Sonic a very late (June 23rd is his birthday) birthday and get a chance to receive one of two in-game prizes. Saying specific in-game phrases such as “Happy Birthday Sonic” will win you one of two room items: a NiGHTS statue or a “Happy Birthday” statue (shown below).

Normally Sonic & Tails visit the games in-game lobbies, but this year is his 18th birthday, so it is much more special. Both Sonic & Tails will be joining missions with players, check the schedule below so you can get in on the action today (all times are PDT):
