    Default Sonic The Hedgehog 30TH Anniversary thread

    Everyone's favorite blue blur will turn 30 next week. To kick this off, here is a fun GTV docu that covers the early 16Bit games and how Sonic The Hedgehog came about:

    Contains a bit of Super Famicom & PC Engine history as well.

    cheers for this - yeah, as a classic sonic fan, i've been digging the stuff we're seeing for the anniversary: sega EU shop has had cool stuff like an awesome statue & others, there's figures all around and the remake of colors & hopefully details coming in for 1-3/knuckles remakes, it's all been great so far, by me.

    i mean, look at other big classic character/franchise anniversaries: castlevania, mega man, zelda, metroid (...) - sega could be doing more, no doubt, but they could very clearly be doing a lot less.

    A couple days later, but Happy Anniversary to the release of one of the most influential games of all time. Even if the rival loving side of the internet won't acknowledge it

    Technically won't be an anniversary for me until Christmas though, but still.

    So the 30th anniversary date has been and gone, has anything of note sonic related been announced to mark the occasion? I seem to have been a bit out of the loop
