One of the first things to come out of the live stream was more of an easter egg. Players will be able to play Sonic the Fighters in Lost Judgement by going into the Club Sega arcades.

Another small announcement was that players in Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: The Official Video Game will be able to compete in Olympic games donning a full Sonic costume.
The biggest reveal of today was a trailer released for the upcoming Sonic Colors: Ultimate, which is a remake of the 2010 game, Sonic Colors.
