Two Sega Franchises Turn 20 This Year


image Sega’s most iconic character, Sonic the Hedgehog, turns 20 on June 23, 2011. While the character was designed in Japan, Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Genesis was released in the West first.


Sonic isn’t the only franchise celebrating its 20th birthday. Blob stacking puzzle game Puyo Puyo turns 20 too.




Sega has unspecified plans to celebrate both titles. Meanwhile, Alex Kidd who turned 20 a few years ago is restricted to cameos in games like Segagaga and Hyperdimension Neptunia.
