Sonic Frontiers, Sonic Origins, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and more

Sonic Central premiered in June and Sonic fans are overjoyed. This summer has been a wild ride for video game fans. Sonic Central showed some of the stuff they’ve been working on, and fans are super excited. There’s a ton of footage from old and new games, plus a sneak peek at Sonic’s second real foray into the silver screen.

The Sonic series has always been iconic. It redefined the platformer genre and was a major competitor to Mario games. Sonic the Hedgehog (1991) was a masterpiece and it showcased Sega’s prowess in the genre. They sold better than Super Mario, and this first Sonic game was an absolute masterpiece.

Since their first appearance on the scene, Sega has had little success with the iconic blue hedgehog, but fans have always kept the faith. Sonic the Hedgehog has one of the biggest fans worldwide and the character served as inspiration for many other platform games that came after. Titles like Crash Bandicoot and Earthworm Jim were all inspired by Sega’s jumps, thanks to the blue speedster.

With such a loyal fanbase, Sega has capitalized on some of the momentum and made some great announcements on Sonic Central.
