It’s obviously raised discussion about who the next Sonic voice actor could be. A lot of long-time fans have even called for past Sonic the Hedgehog voice actors to return and well, it looks like one, in particular, has already had his agent reach out to Sega.
The guy we’re talking about is Ryan Drummond. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, he’s best-known within the community for voicing Sonic in the original Dreamcast outings Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2. And was also credited later on in games like Sonic Adventure DX: Director’s Cut and Sonic Advance 3.
During a recent livestream, Drummond confirmed his agent had been in contact with Sega. This was revealed in response to a question about Drummond’s possible return:
“I wish I could [say ‘yes’], but we don’t know anything yet. You know as much as I know… I don’t want to get bogged down in this conversation, but I don’t have any [issue] in saying that… my agent did contact SEGA today, so hopefully there’ll be a conversation. Let’s see what happens.”
While this will no doubt come as exciting news for many, whether or not Sega would rehire someone for such an iconic role is another question altogether. Would you like to see Drummond reprise his role as Sonic? Let us know down below.
