SEGA

“Get ready, Sonic fans! SEGA has just announced a partnership with Tesla to bring Sonic the Hedgehog 1, the game that started it all, to Tesla’s in-car gaming console for both existing and new models. Passengers turn into players as they race at lightning speed across classic zones to defeat enemies on a mission to save the world from the evil Dr. Eggman, all in the comfort of their own car!

SEGA is excited to partner with Tesla to bring this iconic Sonic title to their extensive gaming library. Sonic the Hedgehog 1 will be available in all Tesla models around the world via the built-in display screen in conjunction with a handheld controller connected through the car’s USB ports. Now no matter where you travel, Sonic can come along with you!”

The game can be played either using a USB controller connected to the dashboard or using the dashboard’s touchscreen control.

For safety reasons, Tesla will pop up a message warning the Tesla Arcade is only for passengers use only if the vehicle is moving. The pop-up message says, “Use of Tesla Arcade while the vehicle is in motion is only for passengers,” then the passenger needs to confirm that they’re a passenger.
