Sonic Channel Rings in May With Big the Cat Themed Wallpaper

Pinch, punch, first day of the month! A new calendar month in Japan means a brand new piece of official Sonic the Hedgehog artwork – and for May SEGA has selected Big the Cat to represent May 2020!

Given that we’re all currently on lockdown from this mad coronavirus pandemic, it’s probably fitting that the carefree lazy feline has taken the art spot for this next month (the only character that tends to feature in the exact same month every year on official Sonic-branded digital calendars is Sonic himself, who features in June every year).

On the Sonic Channel official website, you can download the May 2020 Big the Cat calendar here, and also download official wallpapers featuring the artwork (both for desktop and mobile) here.

You can also download the entire archive of past calendars and wallpapers for past months and years on those same pages. As a reminder the previous characters featured for 2020 include Charmy (April), Amy Rose (March), Silver (February) and Tails (January), all drawn in a pop-art/pointillism style.
