There was a time when this news would've been some of the biggest of the year. …my, how the mighty have fallen.
But we always have this tiny spark of hope that Sonic the Hedgehog will once again become part of an elite game. Maybe they'll do something special when the fleet-footed icon turns 20 this summer:
Sega has revealed that "there's something big coming this week to the Sonic Facebook page," and the company will begin celebrating on "Thurs 7th April." Okay, that's tomorrow…if there is an announcement, will it have anything to do with the mysterious Sonic Generations websites? Superannuation found 'em earlier this week and we'd love to know what they're all about. And these days, Sonic isn't really in dire need of resuscitation; he's been doing better this generation, with a few nods to the past and better mechanics. It's still a far cry from the Genesis but then again, everything now is a "far cry" from that period.
We're hoping that whatever Sega wishes to unveil will also cater to those outside the Nintendo universe. Sonic on Nintendo…man oh man, that triggers some arguments back in the day about which was better, the Genesis or the SNES. "Yeah, well Sega has Sonic!" …things have changed.
