SEGA Europe has appointed partner marketing experts Bridge to create a brand partnership campaign supporting the release of Team Sonic Racing throughout 2019.
Launching this May, the kart racing game Team Sonic Racing is a spinoff from SEGA’s iconic Sonic the Hedgehog series, combining elements of arcade and fast-paced competitive, multi-player racing. Gamers can choose from a range of characters from Sonic the Hedgehog lore.
Bridge recently launched its first international office in Berlin, and will now use its bespoke brand matcher software alongside AI-powered insight and research tools to meet the SEGA Europe brief.
Ros Carmoody, managing director of Bridge UK, said: “Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the world’s best-loved video game characters, offering exciting opportunities for brands to share in his enduring popularity. We’re seeking family brand partners to support the release at key beats throughout the year, such as summer holidays, October half term and Christmas.”
Caspian Horwood, product marketing manager at SEGA Europe Ltd, added: “We look forward to building an alliance of family brands that can help us drive sales by engaging a new generation of children with our most iconic character.”
