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?

He’s blue and he’s fast. For most, that would be enough. But for Sonic, he also demand having one of the best video game franchises out there. For the past few years, he’s been a tad off on this quest, with a few too many lackluster hits. But with the recent launch of Sonic the Hedgehog 4, and now the Nintendo Wii’s Sonic Colors, it looks like SEGA could have a big powerhouse on their hands again. The title brings back the excitement and speed of the first few Sonic titles back on Sega Genesis, and combines new abilities and brilliant level design for an all new, and awesome, feel. But as many experts and critics agree, this is the best full-title to bear the Sonic name since those same Genesis years, so you know Sonic Colors delivered big time.
