Memers Rejoice! Sega Reveals New Sonic Forces “Sanic” DLC (VIDEO)
Once and for all proving that Memers needn’t let their “Memes be dreams”, Sega has officially gone native with its latest piece of DLC for Sonic Forces. The publisher has embraced its inner Memer and announced the ‘Sanic’ DLC, based on the popular meme by the same name. For those unfamiliar with the Sanic meme, an extremely in-depth video that looks into the origin of the meme can be found below:
As detailed in the above video, the origin of the Sanic meme comes from an illustration video from YouTuber Onyxheart, who uploaded a video in 2010 of him drawing “Sanic Hegehog”, which is basically just an awkward lopsided drawing of Sonic. Despite the creator of the video taking it down shortly after uploading it the meme skyrocketed in popularity, spawning numerous different versions of the meme, one of which was actually used in a fake E3 trailer with leaked footage of “Sanic Ganerashons”. Due to the at-the-time high demand for a new Sonic game the phony trailer received thousands of views, perpetuating the meme even further.

Due to the popularity of the meme, Sega has apparently embraced its strange alternate universe Sonic and decided to cash in on it, announcing a special “Sanic T-shirt” DLC for Sonic Forces, even including “Yes, it’s real” in the Tweet because the company understands how completely ridiculous all of this is. That said, the heart wants what the heart wants, and the apparel admittedly looks pretty cool as an optional DLC. Sonic Forces is available now for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
