Sonic Dash Adds Pirates and Yogurt For Sonic’s Birthday

In a very weird month for the Sonic Dash series, data mining has revealed the latest version update includes event assets for pirate versions of Sonic and Shadow, as well as Bongo, the Danimals mascot.

Following up on last week’s out-of-nowhere addition of Vector to Sonic Dash 2, Sonic Dash Apple and Android updated to version 4.2.0 yesterday, promising two events for Sonic’s birthday month:

Ahoy! We have a double surprise lined up for a very special birthday this year! Keep a look out for our upcoming swashbuckling event!

But, as we all know, if the data is in there, data miners will find it, and we quickly got confirmation of two events included:

Sonic Dash has had some unusual promotional character choices throughout its long, long life, including the likes of Pac-Man, Hello Kitty, the Angry Birds, Longclaw, Teen Sonic, Baby Sonic, and Tangle & Whisper. However, I’m comfortable saying that that Bongo’s haunting stare may the least predictable and most visually startling guest character, even more than Andronic.

Look out for these events being officially added to Sonic Dash soon.

  1. I honestly don’t think I ever heard of Bongo or Danimals until now…

    Also, nice pirate designs for Sonic and Shadow.

  2. Would Classic Bongo the Gorilla be a better choice? That would be Fruitylicious. I mean, Shadow basically said “Silence, Brand” to Gushers on the Sonic Twitter Takeover.

  3. I’m glad that Bongo was freely given and I didn’t have to try to EARN his lame mascot visage. Oh well, I’m cool with having more random characters to cycle through in Sonic Dash, even if Bongo IS terrifying.

    I wish there was a way to get Pac-Man and the Hello Kitty characters again. I didn’t start playing Sonic Dash until after those events so I completely missed out on them! =(

  4. You may have noticed that J. Griff was the voice of Bongo in those commercials?
