Sonic x Korone 2023 Merchandise Includes Korone Cuddling Sonic

Sonic x Korone 2023

Hololive VTuber Inugami Korone continues to love Sega icon Sonic the Hedgehog, and Sega is leaning into that relationship again this year. The company introduced a new line of Lucky Kuji lottery prizes to its merchandise lineup. The line is called SoniKoro 2023, or Sonic x Korone 2023, and features new art and images of the VTuber and the video game character. It follows up on more of Korone’s activities as a brand ambassador for Sonic the Hedgehog. In 2022 Sega revealed sets of LINE stickers and SoniKoro merchandise to promote the launch of Sonic Frontiers.

Fans in Japan can join the Lucky Kuji Sonic x Korone 2023 lottery by clicking on this link. Those with an account can then pay to roll on a virtual lottery for prizes, which range from canvas prints and wall scrolls of Korone in her “Hedge-dog” outfit cuddling a Sonic plush to tote bags, standees, and buttons.

The main prizes in the SoniKoro 2023 prize list are large canvas prints featuring the full illustration. The prints can be hung on walls and measure 27 x 22 cm (about 10.2 x 8.5 inches).

Other prizes include B2-sized wall scrolls of the same illustrations. Special totes also feature a design of Korone sitting in a classic Sonic the Hedgehog-style logo.  Standees also feature chibi renditions of the art, as well as Korone wearing Sega hardware-themed cosplay, not unlike the Sega Hard Girls mascots.

The Sonic x Korone 2023 Lucky Kuji merchandise is available online via Sega’s lottery system in Japan.
