Minecraft offers a surprise update to Sonic the Hedgehog DLC
Last year, Minecraft released DLC content to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original sonic the hedgehog video game. With sonic the hedgehog 2 Releasing in theaters later this week, this DLC has now been updated, adding new content. Players will now be able to experience the maze area, along with new skins based on the movies. As with the previous DLC, the new content was developed by Gamemode One, an official Minecraft partner who also worked on the game’s Pac-Man content. The DLC can be purchased for 1,340 Minecoins, but today’s update is free for those who already own it.
Gamemode One’s announcement can be found below. Readers interested in downloading the content can do so here.
We are delighted to present to you the #SonicMovie2 update, now with Labyrinth Zone, and more!

Today’s update was a big surprise for fans of Minecraft and Sonic! Since nearly a year has passed since the DLC was first released, many assumed that no additional content would be available. Of course, the timing couldn’t be better. It’s unclear if Gamemode One will continue to add more Sonic content, but if reception is strong enough, it certainly seems possible!
sonic the hedgehog 2 hits theaters on April 8. While the first movie focused primarily on Sonic, Dr. Robotnik, and the human cast, the sequel will feature more characters from classic Sega games, including Miles “Tails” Prower and Knuckles the Echidna. Skins based on these two characters were already available as part of the Minecraft DLC when it first released, and it also included skins based on Amy Rose, Shadow the Hedgehog, and more. In total, over 29 skins are offered as part of this DLC, so Sonic fans will definitely want to check it out, if they haven’t already!
Minecraft is currently available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC. You can check out our previous coverage of the game here.
