Sega has embraced its inner meme and released a Sanic T-shirt DLC for Sonic Forces.
In case you had any doubts, the release was confirmed on Twitter via the official Sonic the Hedgehog account.
Get ready to go fst. The "Sanic T-shirt" is now available for free download in Sonic Forces! (Yes, it's real.) pic.twitter.com/OzIXyVwgCf— Sonic the Hedgehog (@sonic_hedgehog) November 25, 2017
The free DLC includes an Sanic T-shirt for your custom character inspired by the Sanic the Hegehog meme - a poorly-drawn Microsoft Paint version of Sonic the Hedgehog..
This isn't the first time a developer has included a meme in its game. Not all fans saw the funny side when Nintendo referenced the doge meme in Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes.
And, on a very different note, Bungie came under fire just two months ago after it included imagery which fans linked to the kek meme in Destiny 2 - which has recently become better known for its alt-right connotations.
The Sanic t-shirt DLC is now available for free on PlayStation Store, Nintendo eShop and the Microsoft Store for your platform of choice.
