How Time Blurs By: Happy 25th Anniversary, Sonic
Anniversaries are a great chance to celebrate favorite memories involving the guest of honor, so we’re ecstatic about this chance to reflect during Sonic’s 25th anniversary. Considering the iconic games, animated series and fan-driven culture surrounding our favorite golden ring collector, there’s a lot for us to celebrate!
When Sega introduced the world to Sonic the Hedgehog in 1991, it immediately established one of gaming’s most beloved characters. Tails, Knuckles and many more friends and temporary rivals introduced themselves to players as Sonic blazed through decades of exciting adventures on the Sega Genesis, Sega CD, Sega Dreamcast and other platforms.
Sonic Dash marked the group’s first sprint onto mobile devices in 2013, with developer Hardlight expertly combining Sonic’s classic locales, cast and timeless speed-fueled thrill with the endless runner genre. Fans quickly discovered the fun within this new on-the-go adaptation of the standout platforming series; Sonic Dash ranked as one of Google’s most popular searches related to Sonic.
We can’t believe it’s already been 25 years since we grabbed our first ring, but we look forward to expanding our collection for many years to come. Thanks to everyone that contributed to Sonic’s incredible marathon of games and cultural moments; we owe you a chili dog.
