Sonic Athletics – A New Arcade Game Announced

sonicathletics2

Do you live in Tokyo and want to see Sonic’s ass in front of you while you run on a treadmill? Well soon you can in a new arcade game called Sonic Athletics. In this game you will need to run as fast as possible on a treadmill to get the highest score. While you do this you will also see a Sonic character run on a screen in front of you. The faster you run, the faster Sonic or a different character runs as well. This game can be played with up to eight players, each as a different character. The playable characters are Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Shadow, Metal Sonic, Silver and Blaze.

This glorified treadmill will be open for all starting from April 25th at SEGA’s Joypolis in Tokyo and will cost 500 yen per game. It also seems like this will be the only place where it can be played, everywhere else people will probably have to stick to boring ordinary treadmills.

    Silver and Blaze? Seems a missed opportunity to have Eggman running.

    So true.

    What a genius way to trick people into getting into shape. Run so you can stack points and look at your favorite character run!

    This looks pretty unhealthy though, if it doesn’t have a key system at least (kills the machine if it’s unplugged}. Also this kind of ruins Sonic’s credit as being the fastest thing alive unless he’s restraining himself so his slowpoke “friends” can keep up :V

    This would be pretty cool at Super Play or something.

    Just when you thought Sonic Dash wasn’t enough. Then again, now we know why Rouge isn’t playable.

    Seems legit, just what America needs.

      Um, this is for the Japs….. and even then, most Americans that play Sonic, usually look in decent shape-ish.

    Would I get bonus points if I hold out my hands like Sonic?

    Don’t you already look at sonic’s arse enough in most of his games?

    Because Sonic Free Riders and Mario and Sonic aren’t enough.

    Apparently I missed this by about a week. Oh well, it’s probably going to be the lamest thing in Joyopolis. Which, to be fair this is the place with a fucking zombie shooter game rollercoaster.

    OH COME ON SEGA WHERE THE HELL IS DR. EGGMAN? Beating Sonic in a marathon while being Eggman is a proper exercise.

    Damn, this is only in Japan, too bad it’s not in Canada. They really have to make sonic Athletics multinational.
