Sonic Generations celebrates Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic the Hedgehog is fast, blue, and just about to turn 20 years old. In celebration of the big 2-0, Sega is bringing out what could possibly be the biggest Sonic game to hit consoles in the two decades he’s been here. The title, Sonic Generations, will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year, readying to pay homage to the storied history of Sonic. The levels are like throwbacks to earlier Sonic games, re-imagining classics like the Green Hill Zone as throwbacks to the Sega Genesis, the Dreamcast, and so many eras between and since. Courtesy of some plot-based time holes, there are also multiple Sonics to choose from; the classic “chubby” Sonic, and the modern “skinny” Sonic, each with their own strengths and paths. The concept merges old with new, 3D with 2D, and all types of super hyper amaze-o speed. Best of all, it looks awesome. Check it!
“It’s for the old fans, it’s for the new fans. It’s kind of for every Sonic fan. And if you’re not a fan of Sonic, this is why you should be.” -Sega’s community manager
