During St. Patrick’s Day 2019, the Sonic Twitter account promised JackSepticEye that he could voice an ‘Irish The Hedgehog’, should that ever be a thing. Turns out SEGA kept their promise, and this St. Patrick’s Day, Irish The Hedgehog has been revealed – along with an incredible video.
The story started this time last year, when JackSepticEye replied to a Sonic tweet showing off Jet the Hawk dressed as a Leprechaun with a pot of gold.
Can I voice Irish the Hedgehog?

The Sonic account replied, saying that it was possible if Irish ever became a thing. Fast forward one year, and Irish The Hedgehog is very much a reality.
One year later, Irish the Hedgehog is real.
Happy St. Paddy’s Day! pic.twitter.com/Ua1PM1qYBF

Make sure you watch the video with sound in the above tweet, for the full, glorious effect. Irish The Hedgehog is indeed voiced by JackSepticEye and tells quite the interesting story, that the team at SEGA couldn’t quite decipher. JackSepticEye later tweeted out some artwork of Irish, thanking SEGA for coming good on their promise.
Thank you SO much to the Sonic team for letting me voice Irish the Hedgehog! They’re so fun to work with and I really appreciate how willing they are to make stuff like this happen. What was a dumb joke a year ago is now a full blown reality! Look at my beautiful boy!! pic.twitter.com/Hic00Xvsgj

It’s safe to say the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account has still got it.
Is Irish the Hedgehog canon?
I would almost certainly say no, but I’m not sure you can put anything past the Sonic team at the moment.
