Many fans expressed mixed reactions about the latest news coming from Sega. Some were completely baffled, while others were kind of amused by what’s happening.

There are probably other people, too, who think Sonic is now becoming a man.

Whatever the reason behind it, the collaboration is certainly odd, considering that the game franchise has always been associated as being a “kids’ game” while Hooters is not exactly an ideal place for children.
