Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Works Strangely Well as a Sonic Game

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order follows the story of former Jedi-in-training Cal Kestis years after Order 66 as he attempts to escape and outwit the Empire, and while that might sound like a classic Star Wars adventure, there's also some classically video game-y elements to the, well, video game. In fact, it's almost as if some sequences are straight out of, say, a Sonic the Hedgehog video game, and one fan's made that abundantly clear with a hilarious edit.

While not every section of the Star Wars video game fits the hallmarks of classic Sonic, there's a certain bit that comes across as largely on rails with jumping, running, and sliding. Add in the song "Escape from the City" from the video game Sonic Adventure 2 , as the intrepid fan below did, along with some iconic sound effects, and it fits right in.

There are other variations on this same theme out there, as the sequence seems to have struck a chord with folks since release, but this is by far one of the more amusing edits we've seen.
