Sonic the Hedgehog Fanfilm in the works

Sonic the Hedgehog Fanfilm in the works

Since Sonic’s 20th Anniversary is arriving, why not celebrate the blue Hedgehog with an awesome fanfilm? Eddie Lebron, writer and director of the amazing feature length “Megaman” fanfilm, decided he’d deliver just that, and recently announced that feature our favorite Blue blur! The film will be a non-profit 10-20 minute short, free to download and to watch. It will be based around mostly about the games and some Satam elements, but is said to be a prequel, taking place before the very first game. Characters so far announced include: Sonic, Eggman and E series droids, which have taken the place of swatbots.  Other characters are still up for consideration (*cough* Tails and Knuckles *cough*). Despite being a live action film, Sonic will be completely CGI. Release information and other details are quickly approaching, which Lebron hoping for a June or July release. In the meantime, check out the first trailer

Sonic the Hedgehog 20th anniversary

Sonic the Hedgehog 20th anniversary

It was way back in 1991 when Sega first premiered Sonic the Hedgehog for Sega Genesis. From that moment on, Sonic became the company’s most iconic mascot, knocking Alex Kidd from the title, and never looking back. From his first appearance as a dashboard toy in Rad Mobile, to his Sonic X animated series, battling with Dr. Eggman and Dr. Robotnik, meeting up with Tails and Knuckles, through Sega CD and Dreamcast, the Sonic Storybook series, and more — Sonic has been a blue blur of excitement for over 20 years. It’s no wonder Sega is making big strides for the Hedgehog’s 20th anniversary. Sonic Generations will help get this point across in a big way, as gamers can play through new and classic episodes as Classic Sonic or Modern Sonic. Will you guys be celebrating his big day at your house?

Sonic & Knuckles hits Nintendo's Virtual Console

Every Monday, Nintendo offers gaming fans new and retro titles to purchase on their Nintendo Wii Virtual Console. Today’s adventure in the U.S. is one of the greatest Sonic creations of all time; Sonic & Knuckles.

Sonic & Knuckles was originally on the Genesis, and used this cool “lock-on” cartridge allowing you to connect the older Sonic games, opening new content. Today’s downloadable game features some recreated emulation, and Sega brilliance, so that if you’ve also downloaded Sonic 1, Sonic 2, or Sonic 3 to the virtual console, you can connect them in virtual land. All for just 800 Wii Points. Take a look at the game in action

Special Sonic Classic Collection to the Nintendo DS

Special Sonic Classic Collection to the Nintendo DS

If you’re going to ask my personal opinion, I think that the best Sonic games are the classic 2D games – that means two things; (1) I’m incredibly psyched about the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and (2) I am absolutely in love with the upcoming special Sonic Classic Collection for the Nintendo DS. The collection includes Sega’s first three Sonic games and Sonic & Knuckles, as well as a tin, art cards, and a Sonic figurine. Unfortunately (for me) as of right now, the collection will only be available in Spain and Australia, but Sega has not ruled out a wider distribution.
