Mike Pollock confirms he's still voicing Dr. Eggman for upcoming Sonic games

Get a load of THIS, Sonic!

Numerous Sonic-related voice actors have taken to social media in the last week to mention that they're not returning to their roles in upcoming Sonic games, or the Sonic Prime show coming to Netflix. Many have been wondering if Mike Pollock, the voice of Dr. Eggman, was going to meet the same fate. Turns out that's not the case.

Pollock took to Twitter to confirm that he will indeed be voicing Eggman in upcoming games, but stopped short of revealing anymore details. You can see his full statement on the matter below.

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up!

He's the only VA that I would seriously consider boycotting Sonic media if he got replaced for a dumb reason.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to stock up on lozenges.

He says that like he voices the character more than once every year or 2 lol.

That must be a fun job, it just feels the character might be very fun to voice.

I do wonder if it's also the case with Charles Martinet, Mario speaks up every year and it's only a word or 2.

Charles Martinet does do virtual calls from his home every once in a while at Nintendo NY.

It's prolly fun but from what I hear it doesn't pay all that well.

That's part of why it stinks when voice casts get dumped for basically no reason. Most VA that stick with characters for a long time do so because they enjoy the work rather than because there was any decent monetary compensation in it.

(Meanwhile in Japan if you voice a character you basically have dibs on that character for the rest of your life unless you literally murder someone. Or get caught doing drugs.)

With this economy doing something for fun, usually means it's doing it for a dime or less. It's all a pyramid scheme.

Did he confirm this via MPEgg video? 😜
