There are a number of major anniversaries this year, one of which is Sonic the Hedgehog’s 30u year. SEGA celebrates this year with events like this one up and running Sonic Symphony, various cameos is the next release of Sonic Colors Ultimate. Of course, fans are also busy with their own celebrations.
The video above, from GTV Japan, is a rather enjoyable one-hour retrospective that reflects on Sonic’s story and the importance of character in the game’s story. It’s easy to forget now, but there’s a time when Sonic was at the forefront of SEGA’s extremely effective promotion of the Mega Drive / Genesis, which sparked the original “console wars” with Nintendo. For those of us who grew up in the era it was a memorable moment.
