What’s the Plot for Sonic Prime?
Sonic Prime joins the growing multiverse trend, with Dr. Eggman discovering the powerful Paradox Prism, which transports Sonic to a parallel world known as New Yoke City.
The Chaos Council, a body comprised of Dr. Eggman variants, rules over this nightmare version of Sonic’s home.
Sonic must enlist the assistance of city resistance fighters, all of whom are incarnations of Tails, Amy, and Knuckles.
Throughout the series, Sonic finds himself traveling to various multiverses, known as Shatterverses in this context, all of which he must save from the plans of the Chaos Council.

Sonic Prime stars Deven Mack as Sonic the Hedgehog, Brian Drummond as Dr. Eggman, Ashleigh Ball as Miles Prower, Adam Nurada as Knuckles the Echidna, Shannon Chan-Kent as Amy Rose, Ian Hanlin as Shadow the Hedgehog, and Kazumi Evans as Rouge the Bat.
“During a battle with Dr. Eggman, Sonic recklessly destroys an artifact called the Paradox Prism, shattering the universe and sending him and his friends tumbling through parallel dimensions called ‘Shatterspaces,'” according to the series’ official synopsis.
“Seeking to restore the universe and save his friends (whom he had taken for granted up until that moment), Sonic races through the ‘Shatterverse,’ encountering alternate versions of his friends and Shadow the Hedgehog while fighting the Chaos Council, a group of dictators comprised of five alternate versions of Eggman,” it continues.

IGN praised the series for its fresh and fun take on a familiar franchise while remaining an entertaining trip down memory lane, but criticized its pacing.
Game Rant praised the action, saying that it is appropriately fast, has compelling choreography, and each character has a distinct fighting style, but that the show was too repetitive and the cast was unimpressive.
However, Collider wasn’t a fan of the series, calling it a “multiverse misfire” because of its repetitive story and lackluster animation.
