Sonic the Hedgehog among top franchises in SEGA’s latest unit sales results

The blue blur is yet again one of SEGA’s top performing franchises this quarter.

SEGASammy’s first financial report of the new fiscal year is out, and it appears that the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise is still in good financial shape.

The Sonic video game franchise sold an estimated total of 1 million units between April to June 2021, taking the top billing when compared to other franchises, though the listings are not indicative of an arbitrary power ranking.

This quarter, the titles that contributed to Sonic’s performance were not specified, though the company said that its respective subdivision, the Consumer area, “exceeded expectations due to steady sales of new titles and repeat sales,” similar to the franchise’s previously reported performance.

Last fiscal year, the Sonic series contributed to SEGA’s profits during the COVID-19 pandemic with a grand cumulative total of 4.4 million unit sales, with 800,000 unit sales reported in the first fiscal quarter.

With Sonic Colours Ultimate around the corner, SEGASammy expects that Sonic’s sales will increase in the second fiscal quarter.
