There will be some surprise announcements featuring the Blue Bur at San Diego Comic-Con this week according to a post on the official event website. We didn’t get much of a hint about what will be announced but the Sonic the Hedgehog panel will feature several people closely associated with Segaa’s most recognizable mascot:

Sonic The Hedgehog has raced back into comics, bringing old enemies and new friends along for the ride. IDW editors Joe Hughes and David Mariotte, artist Evan Stanley, Sega licensing specialist Michael Cisneros, director of product development Austin Keys, and head of Sonic team Takashi Iizuka discuss comics and upcoming games, make some surprise announcements, and more!

If you are going to attend SDCC this year, make sure to stop by the Sonic panel. It will be on Thursday, July 19th at 2:00p.m. in Room 9.
