Sonic the Hedgehog's 20th Anniversary Teaser Video

Sonic-the-Hedgehog-Returns-20th-AnniversaryWith just over two months to go till the 20th Birthday of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega have compiled a teaser video of their upcoming Sonic project. Featuring both the retro and modern designs of Sonic the Hedgehog running in situ, our hopes are high for some classic 16-bit Sonic appreciation.

Time sure does fly. Having first made his debut on June 23 1991 in Japan, the blue hedgehog has become an international hit and iconic figure for gamers worldwide. Spanning a huge range of systems with countless games, Sega have more than enough to be shouting about upon the 20th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Sega's Facebook page for Sonic the Hedgehog recently posted up a new teaser video for the upcoming celebrations. As usual, very little is known and we're left to dream about what could be in store for gamers. Sonic Retro recently noticed Sega snapped up a few domain names hinting at a possible upcoming title, Sonic Generations.

So until we know more, here is the video from Sega. Many thanks to RetroCollect user Twimfy for supplying the video on his YouTube channel for those without Facebook.

Didn't know this was coming. Quite looking forward to it now.

Does anyone know if this going to be a retail release or download?

God, please let it be some worthy retail collector's edition that does Sonic justice!

I agree with you there JokerJur.

As much as I love Mario, I felt that they could of done so much more with that 25th Anniversary Boxset.

Ooooh, that looks awesome! Of course, not owning a current gen console I probably won't get to enjoy it. :sad:
