SEGA Issues Apology For Sonic Runners Character Name


Shortly after SEGA released a special Halloween stage for Sonic Runners, the company was forced to push out a notification to users apologizing for accidentally naming one of the characters "Boob."

As you can probably guess, the spooky-themed level was supposed ao feature a character named "Boo," but an unfortunate typo apparently created a need to let fans know there was no ill intent.

Here's what the error reads, via Gamenesia:

"In the current 'Halloween Special Stage' event, the character 'Boo' has been incorrectly named 'Boob,'" reads a notification from the free-to-play auto-run platformer. "We are currently working on a fix for this error and hope to have one implemented shortly. The Sonic Runners team apologizes for any inconvenience caused and hopes to see you again soon in the world of Sonic Runners!" — SEGA

The level won't be taken down, but the name will be fixed...probably before people stop sharing the apology and laughing.

The screen grab at top was tweeted by Pixel-artist, animator and Nuclear Throne character designer Paul Veer, so you should follow him for bringing the hilarity into your life.
