2011 marks the 20th anniversary of Sonic. Yes, you read that correctly. The spiny blue chap will be twenty years old later in the year. I'll bet you feel a lot older right now, eh?
To celebrate Sonic's anniversary SEGA are treating us to Sonic Generations
which pays a fitting homage to the golden days of Sonic. Gone are the unnecessary additions and tweaks, and it's back in with good ol' fashioned game play.
The game sees Sonic trigger an anomaly in space time causing 16 bit Sonic and 'modern day' Sonic to join forces in a bid to save the world. The title will feature both classic 2D style scrolling levels with jumps to 3D where appropriate.
In a bid to get those excitement levels even higher, who'd like a trailer?
