Sonic Generations Revives Two Decades Of Memorable Sonic Stages



Earlier this month, Sega teased a new Sonic the Hedgehog game, meant to celebrate their mascot’s 20th anniversary this year. Today, the game has gotten an “official” reveal as Sonic Generations.


Sonic Generations will, as the teaser video hinted, allow you to play as two Sonics — the classic 1991 version of the character, and the present-day design. There are differences between the two, too; classic Sonic can perform a Spin Dash and Spin Attack, while modern Sonic is capable of a Homing Attack and Sonic Boost.


Sega say that Generations is a re-built high-definition version of the most recognizable Sonic stages from the past two decades. This will include both 2D and 3D stages. Throughout the course of the game, you’ll uncover hidden treasure and meet other Sonic characters as you progress.


Sonic Generations doesn’t have a release date yet (simply “later this year”), but Sega say that it’s a retail game for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
