Cookie Run: Kingdom is feeling the need for speed with a brand-new limited time event. Cookie Run developer Devsisters has partnered with Sega to bring Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles “Tails” Prower to the mobile RPG. However, just like Sonic, this event is moving quick and will only be available from September 17 to October 16.
The nefarious Dr. Robotnik has made his way into the cookie-verse and the only duo capable of stopping him are everyone’s favorite cardio-obsessed hedgehog and double-tailed fox. With the denizens of Cookie Run trapped within the Green Hill by Sonic’s nemesis, it will be up to Sonic and Tails to join forces with GingerBrave and their new cookie friends to save the day and stop Robotnik once again.
To obtain Sonic and Tails in the game, players must collect seven Chaos Emeralds during the event timeframe. Doing that once will give players the Sonic Cookie character. To get Sonic’s best-bud Tails, players just have to collect those Emeralds a second time.
Sonic and Tails come in the form of two special Cookies for the RPG and city building hybrid. The Sonic Cookie comes equipped with a unique rush move while the Tails Cookie offers a useful buff to help his fellow cookie friends. The speedster duo brings with them nine new levels that get increasingly more difficult as you tackle each one. Throughout the levels, you will team up with other cookies to challenge the Cake Monsters that Dr. Robotnik has invaded with. Once a level is complete, players will be rewarded with limited-time coins.
It has been quite the year for the Sonic franchise, which celebrated its 30th anniversary this year. Not only are Sonic and Tails getting their cookie on in this crossover, but they have also joined the roster for Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania. Earlier this month saw the release of Sonic Colors: Ultimate, though that didn’t go off exactly as planned. Plus, it was announced that Idris Elba would be joining the voice cast for the Sonic movie sequel, so Sonic fans had plenty to celebrate this year.
