On Saturday, organizers of the annual Sonic Revolution community event in California confirmed perhaps it largest guest to date, given the success of the Sonic movie: Tyson Hesse.
Hesse, who spearheaded the hedgehog’s redesign for the film, was cemented in a post on the Revolution social media account.
Our next Special Guest, you may recognize him as his past work was working on Archie's Sonic The Hedgehog Comics, & IDW's Sonic comics. A lot of people also recognize his work on Sonic Mania & he was the lead designer for the new Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Design @tyson_hesse! pic.twitter.com/f64CBGAlam

Hesse joins David S. Humphrey, the original voice of Shadow, on the current guest roster. There is already a ton of interest in Hesse’s appearance–almost 38,000 views of the above trailer have been logged as of the time of this article’s publication–especially given Hesse had to cancel his usual appearance at Emerald City Comic Con this year.
Sonic Revolution 2020 will be held the week of E3, on Sunday, June 7th at Whittier, California. Tickets are available now.
