Believe it or not, one of the industry's original icons is turning 25 years old in 2016.
That's right, the spiky spinning hedgehog is a quarter-century old and to celebrate, the Sonic Twitter page has shown off a brand new logo.
But that's not all: Den Of Geek noted that Crush 40 lead singer Johnny Gioeli put up a suggestive post on his Facebook page. The post has since been pulled but evidently, it said:
"We are planning a few performances for 2016 to commemorate the anniversary of Sonic. We might participate in writing new songs for the anniversary game…stay tuned…"
Later, Crush 40 took to Twitter and denied knowing anything about such a project. But is the cat already out of the bag? Maybe it's time for Sonic to make his debut on the new consoles. After a string of terrible 3D releases, the series went back to its roots last generation and the result was Sonic Generations in 2011, a damn good game.
Perhaps Sonic should always remain 2D…
