You can play Sonic the Hedgehog in Teslas
Tesla cars have gotten a bit faster, as the electric car maker has entered into a new partnership with Sega to incorporate the Blue Blur into its vehicle lineup itself. Sega and Tesla have announced that 1991 Sonic the Hedgehog is coming to Tesla’s in-car gaming system.
To play games on the Tesla car display, owners only need to plug in a USB controller. Do not try to play while driving. Sonic the Hedgehog joins Tesla’s growing game lineup, which includes Cuphead and The Witcher 3 on the new Tesla Model X and Model S cars.
Sonic the Hedgehog was originally released for the Sega Genesis in June 1991. Sonic was designed as a competitor to Super Mario Bros. from Nintendo, and the game was known for its high-speed gameplay and Sonic’s too-cool attitude for school.
The original game has been released on most platforms in the sun, from modern game consoles to iPod Nano, iOS and Android, and now Tesla cars.
The last week has been an important one for Sonic. At the Game Awards, we got our first glimpse of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie sequel, including a preview of Idris Elba’s Knuckles. And, Sega also presented a first look at Sonic Frontiers, which evolves the series’ gameplay into an “open area” adventure.
