SegaSonic the Hedgehog is a 2D isometric platformer developed by Sega-AM3 (in conjunction with Sonic Team) and released by Sega for arcades (running Sega System 32 hardware) in Japan on June 1993. It received a very limited worldwide release on September 1993.

Part of the SegaSonic spin-off arcade game series featuring Sonic the Hedgehog (alongside SegaSonic Popcorn Shop, SegaSonic Cosmo Fighter, and Waku Waku Sonic Patrol Car), SegaSonic is a fast-paced platformer where up to three players maneuver their heroes (either Sonic the Hedgehog, Mighty the Armadillo, or Ray the Flying Squirrel) around Doctor Eggman's numerous traps and deadly obstacles (such as giant falling icicles, flaming boulders, and unstable, crumbling floors).

Each player controls their character using a trackball (similar to Marble Madness), while a single button is used for the series's traditional Spin Jump. Along the way, they collect rings for both additional score and replenishing their health meter.

This game was reportedly slated to be included in the 2005 compilation Sonic Gems Collection, but had to be cut due to the difficulty in emulating the trackball interface on controllers that did not normally support it. There are currently no console releases or compilations that include it.
