Announced earlier today, SEGA revealed that at this years San Diego Comic-Con, they will be bringing Sonic the Hedgehog to augmented virtual reality. Very little was said about the whole experience but Sonic is, of course, to be present with an entire line up of other franchises.

The Sonic AR is to be presented to developers and the public in a preview on Thursday night and open to everyone as they “take over the dome on Friday!” There will also be a live concert by Shota Nakama, who is best known for the creation of the Video Game Orchestra.
