Sega Planning for Sonic 20th Anniversary

January 3, 2011 Written by Allen Tyson

2011 marks the year that Sonic the Hedgehog celebrates his 20th anniversary. With his first appearance occurring in 1991, Sonic titles have sold over 70 million units. Sega has announced they have plans to commemorate Sonic’s anniversary in various ways in 2011. While Sega hasn’t exactly outlined what they plan to do, they have launched a site which details Sonic’s success over the years, shows an outline of his previous adventures, and states that plans to celebrate the anniversary are under “development”.

It’s unclear what Sega has planned but the announcement is a great way to kick off 2011 which is already shaping up to be a banner year for gamers.  Sonic 4 Episode 2 is on the horizon, and hopefully Sega gives us a surprise or two
