The song of Sonic Adventure 2 covered by the singer of Persona 5

SEGA continues to celebrate 30 years of Sonic the Hedgehog in music, and unveils the improbable crossover between the universe of Sonic Adventure 2 and the timbre of the delicious Lyn.

The thirtieth anniversary of Sonic will be in music or not: after unveiling the main lines of Sonic Frontiers at the Game Awards 2021, SEGA continues the momentum of the big concert made public this summer. After having been able to discover orchestral versions then resolutely saturated with the musics of the series, here is that the famous mascot invites … Lyn, the famous singer of Persona 5. And that, you did not see it coming.

Persona, Personic

It’s certain the official YouTube channel of Sonic the Hedgehog that SEGA has therefore proposed this astonishing mix of genres. With its slapped bass and electrified guitars, the original version of the first level of Sonic Adventure 2 a priori ticked all the boxes to marry with the now so recognizable timbre of the one who interpreted so brilliantly the many songs of the J-RPG of a whole generation of consoles.

It is therefore in a brand new version remixed by SAME (for “Sonic Adventure Music Experience”) that Lyn takes again Escape From The City:

Here come the Sonic Sessions! A new set of remixes of some of your favorite tracks that we’ll be sharing with you over the next few months! Let’s start with a funky new take on Escape From The City: feel its rhythm as you escape from a military helicopter with nothing but a sheet of metal as a snowboard, and try to escape robots, mechs and giant trucks. This is the city, baby!

“Hey, I’ll play with you some other time!”

The best could therefore be to come, since after this meeting with the vocal universe of Persona 5, Sonic could therefore multiply the featurings that are going well. While waiting to discover the list of the lucky ones chosen, Let us recall that the game Sonic Frontiers will come to celebrate (a little late) the 30 years of the license at the end of the year 2022 on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series.
