DOUBLE SONIC SPEED, DOUBLE FUN
Celebrate 20 years of Sonic the Hedgehog with Sonic Generations™
LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (April 18th, 2011) – SEGA® Europe Ltd. & SEGA® America, Inc., today announced details of Sonic Generations™, the highly anticipated video game title in development to celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog’s 20th Anniversary. Delivering the definitive gaming experience for Sonic fans old and new, Sonic Generations™ sees Sonic the Hedgehog playable as both the much loved classic 1991 character, and the modern day video game hero he has become in this exciting new fast paced adventure. Sonic Generations™ will speed into stores for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system later this year.
Set across three defining eras from 20 years of Sonic the Hedgehog video game history, the instantly recognisable environments of Sonic Generations™ have been re-built in stunning HD and are now playable in both classic side scrolling 2D from 1991, as well as modern 3D style found in Sonic’s most recent adventures. Each incarnation of Sonic in Sonic Generations™ comes complete with his trademark special move, Spin Dash and Spin Attack for Classic Sonic, and Homing Attack and Sonic Boost for Modern Sonic. An innovative new interactive menu system allows for complete immersion in Sonic’s universe with favourite characters and hidden treasures gradually being revealed throughout the game.
“Sonic Generations will certainly be a fitting celebration for Sonic’s 20th Anniversary” commented David Corless, Global Brand Director for Sonic. “By having the classic 1991 Sonic that many fans know and love team up with his modern day incarnation, we are bringing back the nostalgia of the early days of Sonic and combining it with the innovation and stunning HD technology of the modern gaming era. Sonic Generations will bring to life the last twenty years of Sonic’s universe in a truly unique and imaginative way”
Sonic’s universe is thrown into chaos when a mysterious new power creates ‘time holes’ which pull him and his friends back through time. As a result he encounters some surprises from his past history including Classic Sonic, Sonic as he appeared in 1991. Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic must defeat this strange new enemy, save their friends, and find out who really is behind this diabolical deed...

action in 120 minutes - 2 episodes. Which is crazy when one stops to think about it. (1 Hour ago)
Hopefully The Defender's other 6 episodes ramp up the action, but I really doubt since they still haven't properly "met" yet. You guys will say I'm lying but, there's probably been about 10 minutes of (1 Hour ago)
how he goes from Frank Castle to The Punisher. At this point, I'm just tired of origins stories. A Marvel and DC movie does this in 2 hours, but it takes 10 episodes/hours for these series. (1 Hour ago)
So that had far more action than Iron Fist's entire season. Such a shame. As for The Punisher, I don't have much hope anymore, I'm sure they will want to show both his origins as a character and as (2 Hours ago)
Huber Syndrome in which he mentions it, one of the producers said in an interview that because they used most of the season's budget on the Ghost Rider storyline, they had to do the Hydra stuff. (2 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: I was about to mention those 2 shows as well. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has gotten a lot better through the years, Michael Huber of Easy Allies (formely GameTrailers) did an episode of (2 Hours ago)
