Sega Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day With Irish the Hedgehog

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2020, the Sega social media account decided to deliver on a joking promise with actor and streamer Sean William “Jacksepticeye” McLoughlin from the year before. On St. Patrick’s Day 2019, Sega “promised” to let Jacksepticeye voice Irish the Hedgehog if he ever came to be. Well, as of March 17, 2020, Irish is real.

Here’s Sega’s tweet from last year, which featured Jet the Hawk with a red beard, hat, and pot of gold.

Now, for St. Patrick’s Day 2020, here’s Irish the Hedgehog with well wishes. Make sure you pay attention to the captions.

Official art for the character was later shared on Jacksepticeye’s Twitter account.

For more official and canon Sonic the Hedgehog news, Sega is planning an April 2020 presentation. This will cover the announcement that was supposed to happen at the canceled SXSW 2020 panel.
