Since the last time we saw our speedy friend, Sonic the Hedgehog opened a portal and sent Dr. Robotnik away to live out his days on a mushroom planet. Last night, Paramount released the first trailer for "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" and we found out that Dr. Robotnik has made his way back to Earth. How he could possibly do that, we don't know. But that's not all. We also have some new characters joining the fold that gaming fans will surely be geeking out about. So, let's get into it.

'Sonic the Hedgehog 2': Trailer Breakdown

If you remember anything about the Sonic the Hedgehog games, then you know they're comprised of all kinds of different characters that all have special abilities. Sonic has always been the main character leading the franchise, but he's only one of many creatures that all have unique powers. A very popular character who many consider to be Sonic's sidekick made his big screen debut at the very end of the last film. The character has two tails and he's able to use them to fly very quickly through the sky. And he'll be having a much bigger role in this sequel. Introducing the loyal and loveable fox cub, Tails.

Sonic, or as he likes to be called Blue Justice, and Tails will finally unite to face off against Dr. Robotnik. After spending so much time in isolation on the mushroom planet, Robotnik seems to have fallen off the deep end mentally. He's also shaved his head and grown quite the mustache. We're talking an old-timey, longer than the length between your eyes type of mustache. So, Dr. Robotnik will be taking his stache, and seeking out what he knows to be the most powerful source of energy he's ever seen, the Master Emerald.

So, if it was just him alone that Sonic and Tails had to take down, it wouldn't be so bad. But the other bombshell announcement is there's actually another new character being introduced. Robotnik is bringing backup. This new character is extremely powerful. And you wouldn't want to get in a fist fight with him. Otherwise, you might not have any face left after he gets too many punches in. To find out who he is, check out the full trailer below.
